Oh the fluffy joy. I had a new mama friend over for tea and she brought her precious 10 lb. 2 month old. She uses flats casually wrapped around baby and through the legs, with a velcro wrap on top. I gave her my small FMBG fitted with sheepies on it, my size 1 Liz's cloth that I've never even washed (yellow carter's Lennon print), and a size 1 sugarpeas, along with 3 indian cotton prefolds and 3 trifold hemp soakers with a bunch of various velcro wraps. OH and a medium Lana soaker dyed aqua with berry kool aid (so pretty)!<br><br>
She put on the FMBG and the prorap right there in my living room and I got pictures! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I'll post them later. WHAT a high. I think I'm going to try to get her addicted to getting cute American-WAHM-made dipes, considering it's pretty affordable when you have euros and buy in US dollars.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Her little daughter Aino was BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, too. Almost as gorgeous as Beth's Eden (2much2luv).<br><br>

OH and I forgot perhaps my greatest feat--I taught her how to use the flats with a snappi in such a way that the diaper is snug, there are gussetts around the legs, and it's much trimmer on her little babe-a-licious.

You're welcome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I never got to fairy someone in person before... it was so cool! (well I have given away fluff to friends in Finland before, actually, but this was a sizable gift and thus more of a thrill!)

ok, BY THE WAY, I'm sick and feel crummy so humor me by clicking on the 'snuggly bug' link in my sig and telling me if that isn't the cutest pic ever taken of the bug last weekend at our summer cottage. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

He is such a doll, mama! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> He is so fair and beautiful. The only downside to that pic is that we can't see his stunning blue eyes. He's having so much fun though! Is that a stick he's playing with? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Yup a leafy one! The only way to keep him from eating dirt, although we weren't so successful at that: <a href="http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/sassy_leyla/detail?.dir=/1998&.dnm=7db9.jpg" target="_blank">http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/sas...&.dnm=7db9.jpg</a><br><br>

Gorgeous, gorgeous photos! Your friend is a lucky mama to have you around to share the CD joy. I know just the FMBG dipe you mean I think. I have one just like it and it's beautiful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

What an awesome fairy gift! And, what an absolutely cutie pie your ds is!! He looks like an heart-breaking-Scandanavian with those brilliant blue eyes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> (OT: is it still cold back there? my dad will be in Norway in a week and up until the time he left on his trip, it was still only in the low 60's ...)

He's beautiful...What a nice mama to share the cloth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">. It looks like you live in such a nice country. Aren't you supposed to be coming home soon? We'll try to have a gettogether when you do so you can make it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I was going to go to TN this spring/summer, but looks like my mom's coming here instead for July. I won't be in TN for the next six months, looks like. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
It's chilly today, yeah, low 60s or even chillier. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> But we've had a few summery days, too, like the one in the pics. In the next two weeks all the chilly days will go away for awhile and we'll have a real, gorgeous, SHORT Finnish summer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
