Lots to blog about

I've got a lot to blog about...let me see if I can get it all into one post.

*Miss K has a new word...SHOES. And let me tell you...that kid loves shoes. She wants you to put her shoes on her first thing in the morning. She walks around in a cloth diaper and a pair of Nike Shox in the morning...nothing else.

*Cloth Diapering. In the beginning I HATED it. I was ready to buy a vat of vasoline and just coat her up and keep using the disposable diapers. Then I remembered how much I spent on getting all the stuff. So, we kept doing it. Brian was a lot better about it than I was. I slowly started to not hate it. It is a lot of laundry, but I've sort of got that worked out now. Then I started to like cloth diapering. It's cute watching her walk around in her little cloth diaper. And 10 of the ones that we have are colored, so sometimes she has a hot pink bottom and sometimes it is yellow. Now I am loving cloth diapering. I wish I had started this from the beginning. I LOVE the Fuzzi Bunz diapers that we are using. We are still working on some issues with the nighttime diapers. But overall...It's great. Cloth diapering away from home has been a little interesting. I got some strange looks the other day while I was changing her in the ladies room at the mall. I am on the look out for some more diapers. I only have 13 right now. I would like to have about 24 so that I am not always worried about the laundry!

**Project - I actually did a project while I was at the last super crop at Scrap It. Three of the same thing to be exact. I took a class with Amber McDonald and we made these really cute tag books. I loved the way it turned out, so I decided to do something similar. I made a little book that was called "A Year Of K". I did a photo on one side of each tag and then on the back I wrote a couple of things that happened that month. I made one for my mom, my inlaws and my dad and step-mom. So far, I've given the books to my mom and my mother in law. They love them. I think they are pretty cute. I am getting ready to start a project for a friend of mine. I have all the pages sketched out, so it should be pretty easy. I am making the pages 6X6. I think I am going to go ahead and make 3 or 4 of them at the same time. I am thinking ahead for gifts!

Okay...I can't get it all in one post and Blogger is giving me problems. I'll have to post the rest of it in another post!

You are good girl....all that gift giving! People love it when you take the time to put your heart and your art into something for them!

I know that when my sister was little -- disposable diapers weren't even an option...and my mom is convinced that kids potty trained themselves much sooner becauase of it. Interesting theory huh?

Take thinking of you!

I agree with Jann - I was thinking that she will probably potty-train early. I'm glad you're taking such a positive attitude about the diaper issue. Go Hollye!
