THANK YOU!!!! I just got my swap package and I am in love with the tiny little dragon print diapers! I think I'll use these as the baby's first diaper (I was having trouble deciding about that), with maybe a Nikky wrap over them. And the mama pads look awesome, so soft. I'm sure I'll be one cozy mama too.
Thank you so much. I can't wait to show my husband the dragon dipes when he returns home tonight from San Francisco!! It'll make changing those first diapers that much more fun for him.

I haven't sent mine either, but I did receive my package from 3-angels! She sent a very cute nursing necklace that is so colorful - no way a babe wouldn't love it She also sent some washcloths, some pregnancy tea (which I've been happily drinking), and some earrings for mama. I hope I didn't forget something - the package was overflowing. I love everything and am so thankful!

Hi Kathy! This pregnancy has been hard for me too, even though my others were relatively easy. I had morning sickness until 26 weeks. And the only support I really have is my husband, and he works and travels a lot. But when he's home he's awesome.
Welcome to the group!!

And to my swappee...it's coming, I swear. In the mail tomorrow. Forgive my negligence

I'm so glad you like them! I love sewing newborn size dipes. Let me know how the pads work for you, I am always happy to get feedback.

Since the end of June is fast approaching, is there anyone who has NOT received their swap package? If not, I can PM your swap partner if you'd like just to make sure it hasn't been lost somewhere...but hopefully everyone is enjoying their packages by now!

I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm not worried. I ordered my gift about a week ago but don't have any way to know if it is on its way. Hopefully it is.

Woohoo! Glad it got there safely, rebecalizzie! I know you were having aches and needed some relief, so I hope you get to pamper yourself as much as you deserve!

And I got my package from nfbmom-- our first baby CD! We haven't listened to it yet, but we are enjoying reading the booklet and can't wait to enjoy it. We're excited about the prospect of baby music that isn't Disney or about bugs or buses, you know? Thanks so much!
