Daddy's Little Girl. :)

My mom said the first picture I posted wasn't so great. Hopefully this one is a little better? The camera on my cell phone isn't the greatest and this mobile blogging thing is pretty new to me. So I can't really tell what it's gonna look like before I post it. Oh well, whatcha gonna do?

Born on Thanksgiving day at 6:31am, weighing in at a tiny (compared to brother) 7lbs 14.4 oz. and 19.5 inches long.

Sorry BBC girls, I didn't blog during labor as promised. But when I get home I will write up the details for ya'll. :)

DSL Modem Broken

Okay so we're gonna be offline for a while. 5 weeks out of warranty and our DSL modem is busted. We're expecting the replacement to arrive on Tuesday. Hopefully we will survive until then!

(This update brought to you by a free WiFi hotspot!)

I Went Shopping!!

Well, I went shopping at Joann's on Sunday. Boy did I get a lot of stuff! From my calculations, I got enough cotton knit to make approximately 30 diapers. Price to make each came out to less than $2/diaper not including snaps, adding snaps cost me another $0.60/each. So, for the cost of a Chinese or Indian prefold, I will have fitted diapers instead. How cool is that?

So here is the picture of the fabric I got:

Yeah, two of the prints are really boyish but, I got them for less than $3/yard so I couldn't pass them up -- plus who says the next kiddo won't be a boy. ;-)

In addition to the fabric shown, I was able to get just about 7 yards of cotton terry. I also got 2 yards of white flannel for my cotton woven diapers.

I walked away with 18 yards of fabric, one pooping reindeer. Overall I would say it was not a bad trip!

Cut & Ready to Sew...Almost

I was super excited to get all the cotton knit layers cut for 16 more newborn diapers.

I thought I was just about done. So, I went into the sewing room to cut the soaker layers and I find that I don't have terry cloth left!

The sale at Joann's isn't till Sunday and in addition, I can't justify a 1 hour trip just to go pick up a few yards of fabric. So, these diapers will have to wait until next week to be finished. I am so sad. :(

If You Come To Visit. :)

Ok so here is the rundown....

The kitchen sink broke again so I have dishes piled high and no way to wash them except the little bitty bathroom sinks. But, I'm not sure using those is such a grand idea. I certainly don't need more plumbing problems.

Also, the microwave is still out of commission; however, i think we've been doing pretty well without it. The oven has a warmer drawer and the food we've been eating lately has tasted a ton better. So, we've pretty much decided that it is not a necessity and we will not be replacing it.

My appointment with the perinatologist went well on Monday and I do not have to have a c-section. He gave me the all clear and I am no longer on any type of restrictions. Yippee!!!

So, if you come to visit in the next few weeks please remember:
  1. I may not be home if you show up unannounced, please call first.
  2. If you want to eat, bring your own disposable dishes.
  3. If you can't live without a microwave, bring your own.
  4. If I go into labor during your visit, please be prepared to drive me to the hospital and watch my son.
  5. If you think my house is dirty don't just stare at it, clean it up.

Today Is The Day

Yeah so today is the day that we find out if I have to have a c-section or not. Of course, we're hoping that the specialist say "not". But, I am fine either way. Natural or C-section both of them scare the crap out of me but, I'm up for whatever comes my way.

I was induced with Kevin so I really have no idea what to expect if I go natural. By natural, I don't mean drug free, I mean vaginal an un-induced. Heck if I need drugs, I'm gonna take them. I'm worried that my back won't be able to handle the labor...stupid car accident!!

If I have a c-section I'm worried about repeat c-sections in the future. I mean how many can you have before it is to risky? Other than that I'm not worried about it.

So today is going to be an interesting day. Ultrasound to check location of placenta, 37 week appointment, and hospital tour. It's going to be a long day....
