"Are YOU doing your part?"
Maggie is SERIOUSLY worried about those Polar Bears, ya'll!
So here's what we are doing at OUR house(and no there is no judging you, this is just what works for us) We now always try to take our own bags when we grocery shop, go to the mall, you name it. If it's small enough, we just say "no bag please" I mean honestly people, my purse is big enough to hold lots of goodies! Maggie is very proud of her "Little Miss Green" bag and loves to take it places with her...for Earth Day she even used it for her book bag for school!I know it's not the usual high quality photo that you expect, but hey we got new i-phones and it's a whole lot easier to document the "little things" that catch my eye though out the day!
Okay, now back to cloth diapering. The following pictures were from our first day in cloth.
Step one: the prefold with the snappi
Step two: the ADORABLE Bummi diaper cover
See how stinkin cute it is!
He likes to just run around in his diaper now, we're going to be in trouble this summer when it's hot!
So there you have it, that was day one last week. I know some of you have already seen these pictures on Facebook, but bear with me for a post while I share with the rest of the world. We also have purchased Kushi's and liners and bought a wet bag from Blue Penguin so there is A LOT out there now. Also one of our new favorite store's here in Pittsburgh is Pittsburgh Cloth Diapers. Lilli is GREAT and took the time to show me how to fold a pre-fold, and explained all I need to know about the different brands that she carries!
There are also other great online places that you can customize your diapers to your hearts content! We LOVE Etsy and shop on there all the time! Today the mailman brought our newest Etsy purchase! Fionn's new wool "soaker" These are great for night time, and they are antimicobial, so they do not need washed everyday, just if they are "soiled"
So that's about it for Earth Day! I know we fed you LOTS of infomation tonight, but i sandwhiched it between pictures of the kids, so I know it didn't seem that long!!
One last note: One of Maggie's best friends, Grace, had another major surgery today. Please keep her in your prayers as she's older now and more aware of what's going on. She was pretty nervous last night when we went down to see her! We've yet to hear how it went, so we are hoping that they have her pain controlled so she could come back home tonight. She was born with two club feet, and has had multiple, extensive surgery on both feet to correct it, but this one is a doozy folks. She'll be in thigh-high casts (on both legs) for pretty much the whole summer. She will be confined to a wheel-chair for a while until she moves into her walking casts, but her house is multi-level and not going to be easy for her to get around. Just going to the bathroom is going to require her parents help. They have had to completly re-do their house, so that Grace can have a bedroom on the first floor, and on top of that their entire basement flooded two weeks ago and is destroyed. So please keep Grace and the rest of her family in your prayers, as they have a LONG road ahead of them this summer!!
