I'm sorry...

I know. It's been a while. I've been really busy and like I told you before, I'm just not that good at this! We've done alot since the last time I posted anything.
Ty had his tubes put in. Which went GREAT! He's been doing so much better ever since! He also started walking the day before surgery, so that was great too! We've been to Memphis, TN. We really enjoyed spending a week with Hubby's family. We took Ty on his first Zoo trip while we were out there too. He LOVED it! He was such a good boy too. Umm... We had the birthday party at the end of August. It was Ty's 1st, my niece's 8th and my nephew's 4th birthday party and they all had a blast! We also had Ty's Baby Dedication at church.
I know this is all a little spacey, but that's how my brains working right now...I'm so tired! Right now we're just waiting on a possible career move for the Hubby that will really help out the family finances. So hopefully we'll hear something soon, money's getting really tight and we're running out of options.

It's "Feed Your Stash Friday" again!

The question:

What is your favorite cloth diaper brand and why? If you don’t have a favorite - for instance, if you sew your own diapers, let us know that too!

My answer:

I'd have to say that my favorite cloth diaper would be my bumGenius 3.0's. I have a SmartiPants also, but I prefer my BG's. They're really easy to use, my hubby and granny have no problem changing my little man when he's wearing these. They are very absorbant and they wash up very well. My only thing is that I wish they were snaps, which would make it alittle more diffucult for my granny to change his diapers. So maybe not all of them. I just like that the snaps hold up better than the velcro. All in all I LOVE my bumGenius! They're great!

Can't wait!!

We are a little over a week away from our little family trip to Memphis! I'm SO excited! Ty's suppose to have his surgery on the 11th then as long as everything goes great we'll probably leave on the 14th! I can't wait to spend a week with the Hubby and Ty with NO work! :D Hubby hardly ever gets a break from work, so this is well needed! We won't be alone though, we're staying at his Great Aunts house and we are so excited to be spending time with them too!
The only down side to traveling is that I have LOTS of laundry and packing to do! I also plan to cloth diaper the whole time, which will be a little work. It also means I have a lot more stuff to bring, but it's okay! I find it totally worth it! At least now he's eating mostly table foods so I won't have to bring much food with us. That way I can just buy what I need when we get there! So excited! Yay! :D

Surgery is Scheduled!

Getting something accomplished with the Dr.'s at the ENT's office. Ty's appointment on Friday is now a pre-op appointment! I think his surgery will be scheduled for August 11th, not as soon as I had hoped...but still pretty good! Again, I hate to jump for surgery but he's been feeling SO bad and NOTHING is working... I just can't put him through pain any longer.

The Cloth Diaper Blog is having "FEED YOUR STASH" Friday!

FEED YOUR STASH: Kissaluvs Marvels One Size Fitted Diaper Giveaway!

The question is:

If you could build the ideal cloth diaper package, what would be in it and what would you expect to pay for it?

So my ideal “Dream” package would be:

12 Organinc OS AIO Snap Closure bumGenius
12 hemp flats
12 Thirsties Duo covers (6 in sz1, 6 in sz2)
3 packages of bumGenius Bamboo Wipes
1 pack of Imse Vimse Liners
Pail freshener
PlanetWise Hanging Wet/Dry bag
PlanetWise Pail Liner
PlanetWise Wet/Dry bag
Diaper Sprayer

This would cost me about $600 (that would be with a great discount!) that we would do a layaway type thing so it would be done over a few months. I wouldn’t have to buy anything else except for the liners, pail freshener and detergent when I ran out! This is what I would have LOVED to start out with! :)

My Wish List!

There are SO many things that I want to get for Ty's little cloth diapered bum!! So I thought I would make me a handy little list!

bumGenius Organic One-Size AIO in SNAPS!!
How can you get any better than this?? Price is the only thing holding me back!

G Diapers Everyday G's Sixpack
Plan to use prefolds or microfiber inserts instead of the disposable liners, but would be nice to have while out and about!

Planet Wise Hanging Wet/Dry Bag in Taxi or RiverRock
I <3 PlanetWise! I have the reg. Wet/Dry bag in OuterSpace and I love it!

BabyKicks Hemparoo Duz-it-all
I've heard they are super absorbent! I'd like a few to use when Ty's going to be in a diaper for an extended period.

SmartiPants 3-pack
I have one Smartipants that I won during a cloth diaper chat and I love it! Snaps are so much better than velcro!

A Clothesline - They have this Minky 49' Retractable clothesline at Lowe's and I'm thinking this is my cheapest and best bet. We don't have alot of trees, just on our property line and the "T" poles are expensive...And we're broke! LOL
