Thankful "Thursday," Take 60

Thanking God this week for...
  • gospel quotes in my inbox every morning
  • last weekend's trip to Memphis to see dear friends and family
  • cloth diapers
  • Elijah's first cold being very mild
  • sleepless nights being the exception, not the rule
  • the anticipation of a big date with my hubby tomorrow--going to see Messiah!
  • freezers
  • new jeans that fit
  • getting to go home a little earlier than planned
  • the liberating truth of this statement: "God loves me and with His power, I can change!"

I'm with you on the last quote, girlfriend! But cloth diapers, no thanks! I was thankful to switch to disposables back in the day, but I've heard they've come a long way, baby, with liners or something?

yep...they aren't your mama's cloth diapers :) we use these snazzy little stretchy rubber things with teeth so we don't have to mess with pins; we have velcro wrap-covers instead of rubber pull-on pants; and we have other kinds of fancy diapers that you put on just like a disposable. honestly, I love them. when we first switched over (we used disposable for the first 5-6 weeks) I wasn't so sure, but now I don't want to go back. when we do use disposables (like when we go on a trip or something) we always end up with blowouts...the cloth ones almost never leak!

of course, it's easy right now while he's still exclusively breastfed. once he starts on solids...the laundry process gets a little more involved, I think, so I may change my tune :)

Merry Christmas to you too. You should have a card on the way in the snail mail. HUGS.

Amy, I forget where I asked this, but I'm wondering if you got my Christmas present in the mail? Not to bug you, but I hope it wasn't lost out there.
