The Streak

Friday, during Emily's morning nap time (she doesn't ever sleep during this time any more, but she gets time in her crib anyway!), she got awfully quiet. When I went in to check on her, this is what I found.

No clothes, no socks, no diaper cover. Just the cloth diaper she couldn't get off because it was pinned on! Such cuteness!

17 months

She's just getting so big!! She ran up and sat down on Mr. Snuggles. (I did have to ask her to sit up after she laid down on him, but at least she can now sort of follow directions!)

Go Vote!

I entered Emily in the Safety 1st Halloween Photo Contest. You can vote once per day now through November 19. There's already on picture with 116 votes...Emily just has 1. Please go vote for her! I can't tell you which page she'll be on...it was different every time I clicked through. You'll just have to look for the picture above to find her.

In doing the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt (see my last post), I'm starting to think about using more cloth items around the house. I mean, yes, they may cost a bit now, but I won't have to keep buying paper stuff. For example, my friend Shandra has some reusable sandwich bags she got from MamaMade on Etsy. (For that matter, I could MAKE those!) And, I've found the "un-paper towel" and kitchen wet bags to keep them in. My parents have used cloth napkins for as long as I can remember.

So, what about you? What do you use that is reusable?

If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for free stuff. Recently, I've subscribed to quite a few emails that tell me about deals I can find online and in stores to get stuff free or cheap. Here are just a few:

I'm also always in search of sweepstakes I can enter and last May I found an online scavenger hunt sponsored by Diaper Decisions. It's happening again and I'm playing! Several of my diaper stores participate and I could always use the freebies I might win! Below are a few of the sponsors in the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt. (They're not all diaper sellers, either!) Play along if you'd like!! (I may be adding some if I find that I can get an extra entry into a contest for listing them!)
