Off to a good start!

We received our order from Cotton Babies yesterday and our diapers are already washed and being used.  All is well so far!  I'm going to write a more detailed post once we've had a few days or weeks under our belt!

p.s.  Look at how chubby her belly is getting!!


  1. hi! glad to hear its going well. I am looking into these diapers, are you in the us or canada?

  2. Toria, I'm in the us! Let me know if you have any questions about them!!

  3. oh she is precious - and i love her chubby little thighs - those are my favorite on babies!! coll - i bet you're a wonderful mommy!

  4. i just ordered them!!!! we are canadian and i was looking for a retailer that ships in canada so we didnt have to pay for shipping. we tried cloth diaper service when charlie was born but they were so big and bulky we didnt like them but now i have done a lot of research on doing it your self and with the help of a lot of blog moms i have decided to go for it! charlie is 6 months now but we do plan on having more kids! how many did you buy to start off? and do they come with both pocket liners the infant and larger one as well?

  5. Thanks, Jess!! Love you! :)

    Toria, Yay! So excited for you! I bought 14 to start off with and I'll be going up from there. I think I might end up ordering 6 more at some point so we don't have to wash quite as often. They do come with both a newborn insert and then a "one-size" bigger insert! I've been using both at night. Also, I ordered an AIO to try and I don't like it as much because it takes forever to dry!

  6. thanks for the great info colleen, my package has already shipped! i am excited!

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…


This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
