Baby isn’t here. I’m beginning to think she won’t come. But I am assured that at SOME POINT she will make her entrance. And what a grand day that will be. I am currently 41 weeks today.
And because her unwillingness to submit to my timeline is somewhat of a sore subject for me (literally), I won’t discuss it any more.
I will, however, discuss a little something baby related.
So, I’m a huge fan of clothe diapering. I’ve posted at least a couple times about it, though I can’t seem to find the exact postings. Anyway, when we found out we were expecting this little bundle, I immediately contacted my friend Rachel from Chelory.com. Now Rachel makes diapers for a living. Yup, she’s tweeked her own pattern, perfected her technique and brand, and quit her job to sew diapers full time. She’s good. She’s REALLY GOOD. So good in fact that she stocks her online shop once a week with anywhere from 60-80 handmade diapers and she sells out within minutes. Her diapers are hard to come by. And very much in demand. And so I can say with pride and a little bit of gloating that she agreed to make me some. At Christmas time John and I spent an evening with Rachel and her husband drooling over diapers and picking out patterns. Okay, so maybe John and Cory spent the evening drinking and bulls*&%ing and Rachel and I discussed diapers. Anyway, it was fabulous and I feel in love (with the diapers of course). I put my order in, hoped John wouldn’t fuss too much, and waited.
Well, they are finished and in my possession. And I Am Giddy!
Here they are:
6 AIO (all-in-ones) – easy for travel and for babysitters
my favorite one
*I’ll probably see about getting a few more of these….maybe….
6 WI2 (wool-in-twos) – more for daily use. 6 wool covers with 24 snap in inserts
2 pink and brown, 2 purple, and 2 aqua/blue and brown (my favorite)
This woman is amazingly talented. She even dyes her own wool!!! Anyway, just wanted to share with you my newest treasure. Yes, these clothe diapers are baby treasures.
If you feel like checking out her shop go to http://www.chelory.com
I believe she stocks on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
Now if only the baby would come to WEAR the diapers. *sigh*
