    I was just catching up on your Lodge and I LOVE your rennovation. It's awesome! Looks like all the hard work has really paid off.

I think we're just going to go with the diaper service until he can fit into the OS diapers that I've begun stocking up on. I think we're going to do a combination of pockets and prefolds once he grows out of the newborn size - pockets for when my mom watches him (because she's a wimp! LOL) and prefolds for the rest of the time. So I feel good about it all, and DH is right on board which is even better.
    I have a question because I know you have said that you will eventually return to work after your little guy born. I am also going back to work after 3 months of maternity leave and I have wanted to look into CDing for a million different reasons, but my little guy will start going to the little church day school near my work and they want disposibles. Is your baby going to be going to day care or is someone keeping him? Just curious, because if you found a place that will use your CDs then I might keep looking around for one that will use them too. I just assumed they wouldn't do it since I was told No once.

    Claire- have you talked to the center about just HOW easy it will be for them if you CD?! Have you explained to them that it will cut down on the amount of trash they'll have from your LO and how they don't have to clean the diapers or really do anything with them, just put them in a wet bag for you to take care of when you get home. I know that some centers around my area have been a little standoffish at first about accepting CD's but after the moms explain to them just how little work it will require from them some have been accepting CD's!

    I talked to the director about it for a bit, but she was pretty closed minded. At the time, I felt shut down because this day care is soooo close to my work and it has a great reputation so I was bummed to think about looking for another place. I kind of gave up on the idea right there. But I was in Wal-mart the other day and I strolled past the diaper aisle only to get angry at them. I hate buying them and using them. It feels like a huge waste of money. I have always been intimated to use CDs since I work and thought it might be too hard to balance keeping them clean on top of everything else, but I have felt more confident in my working/parenting skills over the years and feel like DH and I could totally pull it off. We would save soooo much money AND it would make him happy since he is more into saving the enviroment that I am. I don't know... Its worth a shot for me to go back and talk to her again. Maybe she will be willing to try it and see that it's not a big deal.

    Melissa (Sweet Pea) went to L&D about 11:30am with contractions every 3 mins for over a minute each. She'd been awake from them since 3am!

    Joseph Andrew was born at 5:07pm! I'll update if I get any stats.
