Movin' up

Movin' up to a crib that is! Baby J is getting too long and heavy for his bassinet, so we finally bought him a crib. I held off on this b/c Isaiah would not sleep in his crib. At all. We co-slept until Nathan and I got married and moved in together a year ago. It was a very smooth transition. He is now a great sleeper in his own bed.

On the other hand, baby J has slept in his bassinet since we came home from the hospital. He was a pound and a half smaller than his older brother and I was afraid to have him in bed with me. Although I love co sleeping with Isaiah, baby J likes sleeping by himself (with the bassinet so close to the bed the are practically connected, lol). So we bought him a crib. Its a pretty sleigh 3 in 1 crib by Delta. I will take pics as soon as I am done! It make take a little bit, b/c I am doing it by myself. Yes, I have a husband that can help me, but I am particular about putting things together. I love my hubby dearly, but sometimes he just does not have a gentle hand when putting things together and I am afraid he will break something.
Wish me luck!

Finally back!

We were having trouble with both the computer and internet. We got a new router and the internet works again. But.... the internet is EXTREMELY SLOW!!! And not all pages will load. The only browser I can get to work half way decently is Google Chrome. Firefox and Internet Explorer just wont work :(. I just don't know what to do!

Cloth diaper newbie

I am a cloth diaper newbie. I wanted to CD my oldest son, who is now 5 1/2, but I didn't because he was going to be going to daycare and I worked full time outside of the home. When I found out I was pregnant with J, I knew I wanted to cloth diaper, and now I am!
I have been cloth diapering J since Monday and I am in love!! We have some Kushies Ultra Lite diapers that seem to work really well. I tried those when he was about a month old and they seemed a little big and leaked. But now, he is a little bigger and they fit wonderfully now, with room to grow! The designs are really cute and the hook and loop closure is east to use. He is a heavy wetter and I have not had to use a doubler yet.
I have also been using Econobum prefolds. I didn't think I would like prefolds, but I do. I love that you ca reuse the covers as long as they aren't soiled. They have tons of snaps on the covers so you can adjust the fit. The prefolds themselves are soft, unbleached cotton. Right now they are a little bulky, but I have not had any leaks with these either.
I can't wait to try some more diapers and diaper covers. What are your favorites?

Followers! And a wonky computer

I have followers! I never thought I would be writing a blog and actually have non-family followers. I don't even have any family members following my blog, lol. Thank you all so much!
On another note, my computer has been acting wonky. I can't open any .exe files, but I can get the internet to work. That's all that matters, right? I've been spending most of my time trying to fix it. I give up. Maybe I should save for a new one. I have a Dell right now, but I have been interested in a Mac. The price is a real turn off and I am worried about learning to use one. I did find a Dell laptop I like. What do you have? Likes/Dislikes?
