Keria - Thanks! His mouth seems to look like mine, which I got from my grandmother. We think he got my husband's cheekbones. Ugh to mancolds! I have opinions about those, but I better keep it to myself
Bell;y - I'm so looking forward to your beta today! c'mon big numbers!!
Tenzin - How funny! You mentioned all the things I'm currently fretting over! We're planning to cloth diaper, but I have zero experience with them. DH has has some, but only with flats. I have a friend who brought by a hamper FULL of various ones and very few are the same. So, I guess I'll get to try a zillion types. Some of the diapers are HUGE. I don't think it would be possible to put any sort of pants over them. They make bumgenius look tiny if that's any indication. I'll take a picture of them if I can remember. I am making a bunch of flats to use in the early weeks and I plan to sew at least a few AIOs for when we go out.
We're also looking into carriers right now. We spent a bunch of time looking at them last night. We're leaning towards a Boba (used to be sleepy wrap) cause their organic ones are made in Colorado. Their "classic" are supposed to be made in China. The problem is, we couldn't figure out which were the classic and which were organic and buying from the US is definitely important. I'm hoping our little ones like to be carried in something like that. I'm not sure how I will carry them both up and down our 3 flights of stairs otherwise. The wraps seem so much less bulky than the structured ones.
We actually bought an Arm's Reach co-sleeper last year when we were expecting our first. We got it on an after Thankgiving sale and even got free shipping. I got it at either diapers.com or babyearth.com. We got the wooden sleigh type. I hope you can find a great deal somewhere and be able to get one. They are so pricey! The sheets are expensive too. At amazon, they are $18. Ugh! I bought one set and I'm tempted to use it as a template and just sew some more. I'm a little hesitant to make my own things for sleeping things though... I have a friend who has the arms reach sleeping hammock. Her baby has reflux and he can't sleep flat and it really seems to help. She got hers on craigslist.
Renavoo - Yay for graduating! I felt a little scared to be graduated. -not sure why...
