Jen, wonderful picture(s)!!! And I love the rainbow socks.
Stacey, I always said you should be a model... I didn't realize you already are, LOL. Best wishes. I hope we get to see you on TV!
LOL at the dog barking at the baby's butt. Mine just sniffs.
And we're missing naps over here lately, too. I don't like it. But at least they're more content playing than when they were tiny. I can still get some FLYing done around the house...
For CDs... I learned I would need 36 diapers to last twins long enough to wash about every day and a half. So I decided to go with simple and cheap -- prefolds, covers and Snappis. I shopped on the TP for prefolds and covers cheap... Then lo and behold, someone was selling off their whole newborn stash, and I wanted it! It was about 22 diapers. So I bought those, and enough prefolds from someone else, to add up to almost 40 diapers in all. With the stash, I was able to try out lots of different things. She had fitteds, mostly velcro but some side snaps too; also a couple of AIOs and a few pocket dipes. Lots of different covers. I loved being able to try out some new things. My initial newborn/small stash for twins totalled about $115. And I got 5 pocket diapers and one AIO as baby gifts off my internet registry (my only brand new diapers).
Then after we'd been CDing for a couple of months, my dh decided he didn't want to mess with covers. He asked me to buy some coverless dipes. Again I went to the TP, and found about 20 pocket diapers averaging $4 each (Just under $80 total). It ended up being free, though, since I exchanged $80 worth of disposable diapers that were given to us at Walmart, and we used the gift card they gave us in return for our groceries. I bought the cloth diapers with $80 from our grocery budget, hence the "free" diapers.
I've since picked up another 20 or so diapers and covers in size medium and large from the TP and from swaps. Also basically free, since I exchanged another $75 worth of gifted disposable diapers. (And I could beat my dh, because the other day I noticed he had opened a GIGANTIC box of size 3 disposables that I doubt we'll ever need, and that I could have exchanged for BIG BUCKS. Grrr.
My large and extra large stashes will probably also be basically free, because I'm starting to trade and sell stuff on the TP and will try out eBay too. Then I'll just use the Pay Pal I earn to buy the dipes I need. I also hope to be sewing useable dipes by then.
Which reminds me... I did finish that first pocket dipe; one day I'll post pictures. I had no real pattern, and it ended up narrow in the waist with big leg openings. I know how to fix it, though, and will -- when my sewing machine gets fixed! This is already quite an expensive hobby!
Blah blah. And for dinner I had two pieces of cold pizza and some pink lemonade. Great, eh? I tend to eat healthy lunches, though, so don't worry... (Actually dh ordered the pizza because he babysat while I went to my twin club outing -- to our local Bead Bungalow. The club ended up paying $25 of our purchases, wow!!! I can't wait to show you what I'm making. I have to go back tomorrow to finish it.) Being there made me think of you early sept. mamas who did the blessing bead exchange together. That was fun. Did you slackers who had the babies before finishing yours, ever go back and make your bracelets/necklaces? =O)
And can I say, I just LOVE this smiley??? hahahaha
