Daily Life

Since having Benjamin, I've been amazed at how little I seem to be able to get done during the day! I've been trying really hard this week to stay on task and accomplish my to-do list! I've done pretty good! I've been able to get my housework done as well as finish up a few other projects! I've had a bit of a setback today, as both sinks were clogged, which left me unable to do any laundry. Fortunately, they've been fixed, so hopefully I'll be able to get back on track!

It's so fun to receive mail, especially when you're not expecting it!
We received a package in the mail today, from Seth's aunt. She sent these lovely things for Benjamin. What a blessing!
The little clown rattle reminds me of some dolls that I used to play with at my grandma's house when I was younger!

Thumbs are great!

Benjamin just started sucking his's not only really cute, but it has been a big help. He can calm himself down so much quicker now, and he's been taking longer naps since he started sucking it, which has been good for me!

On to the cloth adventure...

Having run out of my gift supply of disposables a couple of weeks ago, I've started using cloth diapers now. It's amazing how our trash output has slowed! I decided to use cloth wipes as well. I took some fabric I already had, cut it into squares, and serged around the edges. It only took me a couple of hours to make 50 wipes, so I have a good supply. I saved a wipes container, which I put my cloth wipes in, along with a bottle that has slightly soapy water in it. This way, I can just squirt some water onto the wipe, and I'm good to go! So far I've been happy with cloth diapering!
