Longies: That was the boat i was in with my first. I LOVED 'em, but couldn't afford them. I knit my first pair for the boy when he as like 2. Shortly thereafter he potty learned and well, i started knitting other things. For this baby though, I knit and can now whip out a pair of longies sans pattern. How cool is that?!? :D
Meconium: I don't remember any staining, then again, I don't remember him passing anymore Mec. after the first big explosion all over DH when he was first born. I think that one time was it really. You can use diaper liners I suppose if you are really worried about it. OR, just sun your diapers if there is any staining, that should take care of it.
IRL Friends: my IRL friends and I have a board of our own online. So, we can still talk and share when we can't get together. Which, lately is quite a lot. oh well. I see 'em occassionally. I'm always happy to make new friends, but it is hard for me 'cause i'm an observer/introvert and have poor social skills. I'll say things that sound snobby and rude, but I don't mean them that way. So, I tend to not say much and still come off as snobby and rude. oh well. Can't win 'em all.
-my diapers and baby clothes I did a long time ago, like month 5. I wanted to do something baby related and getting out the newborn/0-3m clothes and diapers was it. Granted, all the clothes fit in one drawer and all the diapers fit in another. I've also been looking through Goodwill since then and pick up brand-name clothes for either myself, as gifts, or as matching tops to longies. (which haven't been knit yet, need to dye yarn to match first, otherwise that defeats the purpose of matching the tops, yeah?) Today I found a Baby Soy brown and green onesie for .99. Now, I don't care for onesies, but i grabbed it anyway. I'm sure someone I know likes onesies. I also got a Tea brand button up 6-12 month dragon shirt. Which I may keep for my Dragon baby. :D (i've probably go more clothes then I need, but oh well, they are just SOOO cute!)
13pumpkins: I also liked the Pro-wraps (nothing fancy, but effective) and Nikky wraps and Bummies Super Whisper Wraps. http://babyworks.com/cloth-diapering/diaper-covers.html?gclid=CLmjgcehubECFRGEhwodEFkAJQ
Craigslist is a good place to go for clothe diapering stuff these days. I remember when I was pg the first time and they were few and far between. These days there are CD bundles all over the place.
Appointments: I'm now at every 2 weeks. It is SO crazy to think that after my next appt. baby will be here in about 6 weeks. Oy Vey! I'm not ready for this. I need to get this place birth-ready and get my birth supplies lined up.
My friends have been asking if I'm having a shower. I don't know, are you throwing me one? lol ... We'll see. Some have mentioned that they'd like to do it, but who knows. They might be on the same wavelength as I am and not really realized that time has sped up and is going at light speed.
