A quick one…
Posted On May 2, 2008
I’m going to Columbus this weekend to visit
with Gretchen and Tuula. It will be a baby spectacular! I’ll miss Jeff, but it’ll be nice to take a trip. It’s funny having to pack for a cloth diapered baby for the first time. I’m sure you can imagine. All of my things fit neatly into a backpack- but she’s got a huge bag filled with diapers and covers and wetbags etc etc. I was laughing about it though, cuz it’s kind of like I have to pack her a toilet for the weekend. Anyway. We have decided to use cloth wipes too. I think initially we just thought it would be easier to use disposable, but the cloth wipes would just get tossed in the bin with the diapers and washed along side them. Easy. Really, cloth diapers are not much work at all, and they are way cuter, and they save you loads of money in the long run. What could be bad? So I’m gonna use a gift card I have for a fabric store around here to get some microfiber fabric and I’ll just make a ton of wipes next week.
Yesterday Jeff and I had a “Grace’s and Jeff’s Day of Fun!” It was great. We went to Target 🙁 because we had many gift cards for there and had made a list of things that must be bought new. We got all the ziploc bags we’ll need for food storage this fall, little squirt bottles for the cloth wipes I’ll make, ya know, stuff like that. By the end of it, which was really only like an hour, I felt lightheaded and gross. I hate department stores. At first I like to look, but it wears on me. I wonder if it’s just me, or if everyone would feel that way if they spent enough time away. I’m thinking it’s the latter. It’s head-spinning, really. But, after that it was a great time. We made real tacos- ya know, soft corn tortillas, carne asada, lime, onion, cilantro. Mmmm. Soooo good. Then we watched Borne Identity which I had never seen. Good flick!
Jeff got this mini fridge from his parents- it’s really old and just the right size to fit his keg for all his homebrewing. It’s not like the keg you would see at a party… it’s like this
. Anyway, so now he has it all hooked up and carbonated and cold in the closet. It’s kinda cool.
Oh yeah, but when we were moving it in the house we decided to put the dog on top of it. I don’t know why. She didn’t know why either, and promptly jumped off.
I love that he can hold her whole head in his hand.
Happy May Day! I took another photo of the view from my bedroom window. Much greener!
This is her “Mama, please pick me up!” face.
Bonus Vera pics:
I like to play with her hair after a bath.
I don’t think I could possibly love her more.
Have a great weekend!
