Well, I haven’t blogged in awhile so I woke up and can’t get back to sleep. What better to frivolously pass my time but to blog. Ehhh…
In the news, Adison comes home from her father’s today and by father’s, I mean his mother’s. This entire summer has been spent with her paternal grandmother and her dad got her every other weekend. Don’t ask me why but I am pissed. Her summer is ending early and its probably due to his mother not getting something she wants like custody or child support. Ha Ha. What a joke!
She will be back with me permanently and I am super excited.
Benjamin doesn’t walk and everyone seems to want to point that out. I personally would be okay with it if he didn’t walk until later because I hate chasing running babies. He is learning lots of words and likes to say to the dog, “Jack Sit.” He has also began to show his excitement with everything, even mundane things.
We’ve decided to cloth diaper exclusively. Now I am not rich so I am sharing a link and site with everyone I know who wants to use cloth. There is a website called Cotton Babies. They have started a cloth diaper bank and there are some near your house. I am super excited to get them on Tuesday!
It was super easy and Lisa was great and very helpful. I doubt Lisa will help all of you but just in case, she’s really nice!
She also has a SAHM mom blog and reviews a lot of products… Check her blog out!
Back to the nitty gritty.
I have decided that with all the possible options for wearing your baby, I am a ring sling momma. I love my ring sling. I recently made myself a new one. It’s gorgeous! (At least I think so!)
This is my new baby! It was originally brown and white plaid linen. With the help of some Rit Dye and a bunch of rubber bands, I was able to create this. It is turquoise and kelly green ombre with aqua ring slings. I have also since put a huge pocket on it so Benjamin can throw his sippy cup and other random things in there.
I also made my own mei tai this past week. I am not a fan of them. They’re nice but I prefer my sling. I guess after nearly fifteen months of slinging my child, I have grown accustomed to it. I will keep trying the mei tai because maybe it is just me.
I bought some Osnaburg to make a wrap. A member of my FB and personal friend of mine, Ashlee suggested it. I am a texture person. I can’t stand so many types of fabrics and how they feel against my skin but I actually like this fabric. Its good by me.
Still learning the different wraps and Benjamin doesn’t want to sit still long enough to let me back wrap him. He also thinks it HILARIOUS to pull my freaking hair every single time I try.
So that’s it. I am a ring sling lady. I will always be the ring sling lady. I am going to order more rings and just sew myself a million ring slings until I run out of room for my fluff.
