This is me after my students’ final recital this past monday. I am still teaching a limited schedule for the next 2 weeks, but I’ve already said goodbye to almost half of them. I got these roses from Felyschia. I also got some flowers from handsome Zach a week ago, and they are colorful wildflowers. I didn’t take a picture of them before they wilted…I love Zach.
Further down, you’ll see 2 pictures of me today, at around 24 weeks. I am starting to feel my girth. It is sometimes hard to breathe in certain positions I sit in. Notice how I can look more pregnant depending on what angle the picture is taken from. Interesting.
Zach and I are planning to diaper Miss Little Girl in cloth diapers. There are so many new technologies with fabric and different ways you can cloth diaper. But the system that seems the easiest to me is to get fitted diapers (elastic around legs and snap/velcro waist) with diaper covers (what used to be called plastic pants) We will also have a few all-in-ones…they are just like disposables but you don’t dispose. So back to the covers…many people use wool diaper covers at night because they are antibacterial/fungal, stay dry, and can go for several weeks without washing – really. With all those wondrous qualities, they are also wondrously expensive to buy because most are handknit. I have been looking for wool diaper cover/soaker patterns online to crochet because I don’t know how to knit. Also, you can make them from soft wool sweaters. But you only need 2-3 at the most. So, I think we’ll be able to scrounge some up before she comes. I’m still not decided on what diaper brand to use…I’ve registered for lots of kinds at nickisdiapers.com and some at greensproutbaby.com, but I don’t really know what will end up being the best. The main challenge with cloth is to find a trim fitting diaper that isn’t too bulky.
