More Cloth Giveaways!

So, get this.  It turns out there is an actual website devoted to cloth diaper giveaways!  (I know.  Shut up).  It's called...well...www.clothdiapergiveaways.com.  Not the most imaginative name (not as cool as, say, The Semi-Organic Mom!) but hey, free diapers are free diapers.

I found some great CD resources on this blog too.  For starters...

1.  There's a great website called 29 Diapers, and it's all about cloth diapering on a budget.  They are currently giving away a Smartipants diaper (I want to win the black one!  How stylish will my boys be in a black diaper?)

2.  AppleCheeks diapers is also having a giveaway, and their contest is RIDICULOUSLY easy to enter.  It's so easy, Bug could probably do it on his own if he wasn't more interested in opening and closing my computer.

3.  Sandbox Lane is hosting a one-size Fuzzi Bunz giveaway (and you know how I feel about Fuzzi Bunz!) once they reach 800 Twitter followers.  I feel they can do it--I have more followers than that!:)

We've been cloth diapering for sixteen months and going strong!  Here's Bug in a bumGenius!  He's such a little stud, isn't he?

An Actual Conversation Between Me and Jon

Him:  Why don't you go lie down, honey?  You look exhausted.

Me:  I can't.  I have to go switch the laundry so we have clothes to wear during the hurricane and then I have to go hunt for turds.

Just another average day in my house:)

Free Diapers? Hook Me Up!

So, with Baby B's impending arrival somewhere between 13 and 17 weeks away (gulp!) I have started re-evaluating my diaper situation.  Bug had his 18 month checkup today and he's currently snuggled up next to me sleeping away the horrible shot he got (just one--his DTap), but I learned today (not that I was surprised) that he is now 36 1/2 inches tall and weighs a comfortable 30 pounds.

Seriously, why don't I have better arms?

Anyway, so I've had to formulate a new diaper strategy, because (like it or not) I am going to have two children in diapers.  So, I wanted to share with you (in case you're looking to pad your stash!) some great promotions/giveaways that are going on right now....

1.  In The Know Mom is currently giving away a One Size Fuzzi Bunz cloth diaper at her website!  Absolutely Free!

2.  Speaking of Fuzzi Bunz (my absolute FAVORITE brand of cloth diaper), they are having a great promo right now of buy 6 diapers, get two free.  You can check out the details here.  I actually headed over to Kelly's Closet to pick mine up because they are also having a promotion, which lasts through August 31.  If you spend more than $44 in an order, you can enter the promo code "Back2School" to get a FREE one size cloth diaper.  The best part?  You can use the promo code TWICE.  I placed two orders, and so now I am getting FOUR free diapers!

I also love Kelly's Closet because they have a loyalty program as well as coupons usually posted on their website.  Check them out!

3.  I have been entering in some Facebook promotions for free diapers as well.  www.diapershops.com is currently hosting a giveaway of TEN itti bitti tutu one size cloth diapers, PLUS an itti bitti wetbag!

Happy Fluff Shopping!

Disturbing News

Yesterday, to my horror, I learned that my son had stolen my cell phone and texted the following picture of himself to his Auntie Carly:

I need someone to explain to me (a) how the heck he managed that and (b) if this is a warning of things to come.....

Being Sick While Pregnant? Gross

So, once again I dropped off the face of the blogosphere.  I've been super busy, and last week Bug and I helped out at my church's VBS.

And now, Bug and I are sick.  ::shakes fist at parents who don't keep their sick kids at home::

It's not horrible sick, but we both have colds and coupled with being 23 weeks pregnant, I most certainly do not feel great.  Bug got ill a few days before I did.  I knew something was wrong when we got home on Friday afternoon and he walked up to me and wanted to be cuddled.  Now that my almost 18 month old can walk, he wants nothing to do with sitting around and being held--unless, of course, I am reading him a book ::beams with pride::

Not a lot is going on with us otherwise.  I am trying to get well as fast as I can so that I can get to work on some major projects, such as reorganizing the closet that is in Bug's room (and will hold Baby B's stuff as well).  B already has a drawer, but he is going to need his own space in the closet....so we'll see how that goes:)

I've also started making my own laundry detergent!  Check out my post over at The Prime Parents' Club.

In exciting news, I will be having my third (and hopefully final) ultrasound on September 20, to determine if my placenta has moved (which I really hope it has) and also we can double check that B is a boy.  I'd like a good shot of the goods, ya know?:)  I was looking back at Bug's ultrasounds and it's much clearer on those.

Anyway, my goal for the little man and I is to leave the house tomorrow (something we haven't done in days) and hopefully we'll both be feeling better.
