Our Weekend

Ok, its been a little longer than I would have liked. Sorry its been a while. Thanks for the comments over the weekend, it helps me remember to keep blogging.

I am working on another dress for Ava. I think she will like it. I am certainly proud of myself for finding time to work on projects. I have also been making her more diapers and wipes. We are using cloth for both and things are working out great. It has saved SO MUCH money. I love it!

Grandma came for a visit this weekend. Ava showed her all her new tricks. It was a fun weekend. We went to a local fair which had a petting zoo, Ava loves animals but is a little thrown when it comes to livestock. After awhile she started to warm up and then proceeded to try and kiss all of them.

Hopefully I will be able to post the new dress in a few days.

Diapers that Last Forever

Ava's new cloth diapers arrived on Friday and not a momment too soon. Lately she has been getting terrible diaper rash, not to mention I have been getting tired of constantly shelling out money for diapers. I only bought a couple of diapers so I could try a few kinds out, if you are reading this and used cloth diapers on your baby which is old enough to drive, you would be shocked by all the "new" options out there for diapers. No pins, no folding.

So far, using cloth has been just as easy as disposibles, but less smelly. Yes, LESS smelly. Without chemicals the pee and poop doesn't smell. Since I have a limited amount of cloth diapers, we are still using some disposibles, and already Ava's rash has almost completely cleared up. Unfortunately, she has school all week this week where she will be wearing disposibles during the day. When we are home we usally get her to go on the potty a couple of times which helps with the rash situation.

So by the summer, I might have 2 in diapers but my wallet will not feel it. You might not agree with using cloth or think I am cheap, but I would rather save my diaper money for college.

Attached is a picture of Ava modeling her new diaper. Only the finest cotton for my baby's bum!

Hello Weekend!

Sorry there was no mid week Blog this week. I actually got out of the house twice after work this week and the other nights I was busy with this week's sewing project, which I think I can manage to finish tonight or tomorrow and hopefully post picture by Sunday.

I'm so happy the weekend is here. Bill is off both Saturday and Sunday. He will sleep most of Saturday since he doesn't get home until 5am. It was a tough adjustment at first, but after a month, its becoming second nature.

Please check out Ava being silly on a short video. She is up to new things everyday! Tomorrow we have to head down to Miami for a casting call with Parents Magazine, fingers crossed she books it!!

Where Did the Weekend Go?

Well another weekend came flying by. Ava and I spent most of Saturday by ourselves since Bill was working. We went back to Butterfly World to hang out with some butterflies and birds. We both really like that place.

The SuperBowl was pretty boring until we got to the last 5 minutes. I know there are alot of disappointed Pats fans out there, however I can't really feel bad for them because as an Eagles fan I had to cope with disappointment for countless seasons. At least T.Brady still has his looks. My crush on the Manning boys grows deeper with every football season.

I don't have too much time for a long post. Monday is looming. I have high hopes on finishing another outfit for Ava this week, wish me luck on accomplishing my deadline.

Happy Birthday Frankie- We miss you everyday!
