And no one can say anything because people get super defensive about her. Anyways, some people decided to sell off their diapers for crazy prices as a kind of "protest" and people are actually buying them. Crazy, huh? And I sold my GM for 26$ppd
i had no idea---too funny. i'm new to this all but it is annoying that there is a big show about how she's stocking on fri on the website/email and then it's one diaper! and of course, sold out instantly. and then wishboxes....grrr.

i can't believe they sold! well, now you know--you can sell even your used ones for a lot more!

I need some interlock soakers so I've been lurking there for the past few days and kinda feeling amused about the whole diaper frenzy thing. I'm trying to stay detached

Ya, it sure has been crazy. I just sold one for 25 too- and was amazed at the 45! I've just been hanging around there lately because...well, hm. Actually because I decided to sell a couple gm's, and b/c I know a friend hangs out there and I can contact her. Boy is it ever a black hole, though, sucks ya in.
I've been soo happy with my stash though I just have no need, and for quite a while I only very occasionally stopped by. I got 'sucked in' to the gm craze but it was b/c I had such a hard time fitting Evangeline. I didn't 'get' the pf dipes yet, so I tried so many and yet I knew there was this elusive 'perfect' diaper that would fit us, and then I tried the gm, and there it was. So that's my excuse- they make up 1/2 my stash now. Half goodmama's, half prefolds, and wool. But there was a day, when it first started picking up that I would say in a mocking voice to myself when I saw the ads, 'good mama. I don't need to be that kind of good mama!'
Anyway-
Boy, is Eva still ever sick. She's soo sleepy. She falls alseep every time I pick her up and face her towards my shoulder. She falls asleep rocking. Yesterday she was sitting in her snowsuit while I dressed Axel for a walk and she slid to the ground, face down and fell asleep on the floor. She had hardwood marks on her face when I picked her up!
Like Romi she's waking at night like crazy. Last night it was every hour, the night before every 2. And not just to nurse. She just cries. We're BEAT.

Hey Kris I wanted to say yesterday (?) that your picks were so cute! I love the one of Zenon's bum- I think that his is rounder than Evangeline's! He's the one with junk! (I swear, I'm a fan of Fergie JUST because she sings that great song for babies!)


Evangeline eats mostly what we eat, unless it's not great food, undersirable texture, or whatever. I avoid nuts too. I have noticed, though, that although she does self feed, if I give it to her on a spoon she loves it so much more. Lazy thing! She loves soups and applesauce and yogurt- easy down, sweet and tasty!

awww, I just realized Chad and Eva are sleeping. You know, the past 2 nights he's been the one to finally quiet her. Wed night she was sitting in our bed, crying and not settling and he rolled over, hugged he under his arm and said, 'here I am' and she fell right to sleep. (5 am) Last night too- at 4:30 when I'd had it he put her on his chest and she calmed down and slept till 7.

Hanno- I heard someone say Evangeline with a soft E the other day and now I know. I didn't really know you could say it like that. It sounded nice, more breathy. I might not stress the 'eee' so much anymore.

Ya, I'll take full blame for it. I just REALLy fell in love with them when I finally found a dipe that fit so well on Eva. It was either butt crack, thigh pinch and bulge, privates showing, gut hangover, too difficult to put on, or the best- butt cheeks and other parts hanging out( yes, that girl had other parts)! or pee right through! but not $45 nice, I agree. That kinda diaper would have to be aio without pul, and clean itself. (remember that elbee I couldn't use??)

Hope Eva feels better soon, poor baby.
Romi isn't sick. Which is why the bad sleeping is puzzling.

queen--tried to quote ya but the servers too busy.

thanks!--but i think their heinies looks the same!! both hugely cute.

and adam is the same with zenon---zenon falls right asleep with him but with me he wants to nurse and gets restless sometimes. i often hand zenon off to adam to put him to sleep.

Ronan's working on his upper teeth (3-4, by the looks of it). And his favorite time to bite? :2bfbabe: And he finds it hilarious.

I had to walk into the office, drop him in DH's lap and say, "five minutes." I put together a casserole and tried to decide if putting a bag of frozen peas in my bra would be a bad idea. I decided against it, figuring that if I numb myself, I won't notice he's biting until he gets a chunk.

I've been off DS lately, it does cause one to frenzy. The gms look nice, but I could never justify the cost. I hear ya, queen, on the fit, it's tough with pfs sometimes. BTW, Scarlet is soooo hard to diaper lately, so squirmy! Sometimes she gets a little pinched just because I can't keep her still, so I'm reaching around to close the darn covers!

The local librairans (that doesn't look right) are trying to get us to come to "lapsit" baby time, whatever you want to call it, but I'm afraid she wouldn't stay in my lap, she is on the move!

That is so sweet about daddies getting babes to sleep. Sorry your babes are so sick still and/or not sleeping well. Scarlet was up quite a bit last night, too, no explanation though.

I do find it daunting, I must admit. How did you start, and when do you think you'll start with your dds?

What dipes do you use? Our boys are similar in stature...I was thinking about Ion the other day and wondering what you put him in. -- Especially for only $6 per dipe.

How much are you/were you selling the sandys for? I have been looking for a few smalls to supplement our stash -- the med thirsties are still a little big, and I am still working on the pfs. BTW, thanks for yor comments on that....I tried doing a new fold today and it seemed to work a little better. I laid it under him folded down the back to make the back wings, twisted it where it goes between his legs, and then spread that out across his front...It seemed like it might leak when I read someone elses post about it, but it didn't
