Being a mommy is amazing. Hubs and I are having so much fun learning about Erin and caring for her together. We are settling into a routine and life is good! This is my "little little" after her bath this morning.
She is still so tiny! We could just eat her up! Allie is only interested in her when she's moving or when she's taking up Allie's attention. We are doing our best to keep da pup included in this new lifestyle. I thought life would slow down after a child, but really we just keep on truckin'. We've been shopping and to visit friends and to eat lunch with Daddy since coming home from the hospital. Our pace may be a little slower (but not much)... for the most part it's our perspective that has been drastically changed.
On to Cloth Diaper Thursday:
Lesson #2: Form, Function, and Failure
I am officially a cloth diaper failure to date. Notice I said "to date." I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP. First we waited for the meconium to pass. Then we decided we'd cloth diaper at home and not on-the-go. And all I have to report on is 2 cloth diapers. It really wasn't a big deal.
What was a big deal is the big-booty-baby. The diapers are so bulky on her right now that they barely snap over her clothes if at all. And she's so tiny that going up a size in outfits looks ridiculous. RI-DI-CU-LOUS. Also - SHE HATES HAVING HER DIAPER CHANGED! Gets fightin' mad I tell you. It's the cutest thing ever.... but you'd think I'd cut the child's arm off. Honestly.
BUT - I am not giving up. We ARE going to give this a real go. I have given myself a deadline. Tomorrow morning - I become dedicated. There are no outings planned for tomorrow so I can spend the time getting my feet under me.
I am NOT DEFEATED. Just delayed.....
A better update next week. Because I am going to CD for realz!
