I have used a lot of T.O.M. products in the past, and didn't realize they made a safe baby soap. I am so excited to have a good option this time around, rather than just the perfumed/alcohol-full Johnson's and Johnson's stuff!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Nature! Especially considering how terrible the past few weeks have been for you!
Also, it was funny when I finished showing DH the clothes. We have so little ready for this babe that we were standing there holding the pink outfit, and both realized that these are the only 2 outfits that she has so far, and that we don't have a space for her clothes yet! We have GOT to get in gear!
Thanks again!
Yay! I'm so glad it got there and that you like them. I wish I could have made you something, but gosh darn it.. I need to learn how to knit!
So sorry that you got your package so late, but ... at least it got there before the baby right??

From the ever lovely Helen ...

3 flat-fold diapers (or Muslins as she called them) in a beautiful pale green. They are so soft and best yet - square - so I can use them to do the origami fold which I love. I like carrying the flats around as my back-up diapers when I'm out and about since they take up next to no room and they are so incredibly versatile.

The Baby Yoda Sweater is fantastic - it's done in undyed wool and is so nice and thick - it'll be great for the Bean to wear while I'm wearing him and we venture out in the cold.

A green playsilk for Michael - he's lucky my hair is short again or I'd probably be taking it to use for myself as a scarf since I love the colors so much.

A gorgeous piece of hand-painted fabric to use for my Mei Tai - the colors are great and I can't wait to look at canvas colors to match it.

Lastly a bag of chocolate lime sweets (lime hard candy with a chocolate cream filling) which Michael is definitely not getting his hands on (even though they are red-dye free). I think I'm going to smuggle some in with my breastfeeding stuff and sneak a few while I'm nursing the Bean in the recovery room.

My own ever patient swap partner's package is currently wending it's way to her and should be there on Monday. I hope she likes hers as much as I enjoyed putting it togther and getting mine.

My swap package came today! What a nice way to brighten up 3 long days of discomfort and sleeplessness

Thanks to nausicaamom for the sweet knitted baby clothes! I took pictures because my descriptions wouldn't do them justice:

The little sweater jacket and hat will be perfect for our cold weather right now. What good timing because I have recently thinking about what to do for a lightweight carseat-compatible jacket/hat that will keep the baby comfy and not overheated once the heat in the car kicks in. And look at that, the perfect sweater/hat set just literally landed on my doorstep

I stuffed the little knitted MJs with paper so you guys could see the cute detail, how adorable are they? They match the jacket perfectly. And the socks are so soft I put them with the birth supplies right away so that she can wear them from day 1.

Thanks so much! I love it all!

How is everyone else doing? Any more new swap packages to report? I love hearing what everyone received.

I've been checking the DC and saw it arrived in your city today and I was hoping you'd get it today. I made the sleeves on the sweater a bit long so hopefully she'll get a bit of use out of it next fall as well. I'm so glad you liked everything.

Yes, I held it up to a couple baby outfits to get an idea of the fit and I think it will definitely work this winter as outerwear and next fall as a sweater! It will look really cute with a little pair of jeans. Thank you so much!
