I have hoarder tendencies, especially when it comes to our children. The sentimental side of me wants to preserve every piece of artwork, treasured board book, and precious teeny tiny shoe. These stripey sort-of-matching jammies! How can I part with youuuuuuuu? But I also…

Not Me Monday: Diaper rash edition

I was not totally smug about Baby Boy never really having a diaper rash. Except THAT ONE TIME he was teething, and it was no biggie, because like, he’s cloth-diapered, and they don’t really GET rashes, so, yeah … My smugness did not totally come back…

Our baby in review: His Seventh Month

Vital stats: At his six-month appointment, Baby Boy was 19 pounds (76th percentile) and 26 inches tall (49th percentile). His 18-inch head was in the 95th percentile — not surprising, given that both Darling Husband and I have very large heads. We’re so happy…

Wiped!

I just realized that I don’t think I ever really blogged about how we’re liking our cloth wipes. And, really, what is more fascinating than a post about POO-WIPING RAGS? Not much, right? I’ve talked before about how we *heart, heart, HEART* our cloth…
