Diaper Fail

Yesterday I had a huge disappointment occur. I decided to try the cloth diapers I made for Lucy on her (we had been using disposables until her chord fell off), and to my surprise they didn’t fit. They actually went around her okay, but the sides where it Velcros to stay on her don’t reach […]

In which Baby Eliminates

Before we ever tried getting pregnant I had been doing some research online about natural parenting and had a long list of things I wanted to do for/with my child. One of the things I read about early on was Elimination Communication (or E.C.). For those who know nothing about it, Elimination Communication is pretty […]

Baby Cedar + Baby Russ

Last night after a long day of packing and getting things ready to move I lay down on the couch and began flipping through The Baby Book (which by the way if you haven’t seen it is excellent). After I put the book down Russ picked it up and pointed at the third baby and […]

Vintage Blue Baby Dress

As soon as we found out we were having a baby girl the maternity sewing was forgotten. I picked up some darling baby patterns on sale at the fabric store and have been using vintage fabric to make our little girl some darling clothes. I sewed this little dress and bonnet the weekend after we […]
