A thinking/thankful post! ;-)

WARNING: This post is full of randomness: random pictures and thoughts... and the pictures and thoughts probably have nothing to do with each other! ;-) I've just been far to busy to take many actual pictures... my apologies! 

Cloth diapering thoughts: I love cloth diapering (as I've probably mentioned before!), and it was going GREAT there for awhile! I was keeping up with laundry, washing out diapers, and putting a clean 'cloth' diaper on our little lady. My husband even made me a WONDERFUL diaper sprayer. To which I am very grateful. I love cloth diapering even more with my diaper sprayer. My husband made it out of a kitchen sink sprayer! Now I don't think I could live without it! It makes it that much simpler. 

BUT, my little lady got a very BAD diaper rash. Which I'm thinking might be from her drinking goats/cows milk (I took her off dairy and put her on rice milk). How do you cloth mommy's get rid of diaper rash while still keeping your little ones in cloth? I switched her to Seventh Generations disposables and started using Burt's Bees Baby Bee diaper cream. It seams to be helping (tho still taking awhile to heal up). I tried putting some Coconut Oil on her for awhile before switching to disposables (had heard of someone doing that before and it working really well. It usally works on her, but not this time:( ). 

Update on pregnancy: April (the month we are due) has been on my mind a lot lately! I can't help but wonder who this sweet little one growing inside me is going to be! Goodness I can't wait to meet him/her. We had our first midwife appointment! And I am super excited to say that we are going to try a home birth this time!!! I didn't know I was going to be so excited to try a home birth, but I really can't wait! No really I can't wait! I'm looking forward to the labor and delivery! Well let me rephrase that... I'm looking forward to the meeting this little one and will go through anything to meet him/her! :D

I loved hearing the heart beat at our appointment! It makes my heart beat a little faster I'm sure! ;-)

Okay sorry... I just can't say this enough.... I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D

Moving on before you all loose interest in my post...

Our little lady is just as sweet as she can be! ;-) She has been talking, walking, and RUNNING! Oh I love being a mama! What a joy it is to hear/see my daughter learning so much!

Ack! Can you believe Thanksgiving and Christmas are SO close!!! Wow! This time of year really gets me thinking about what I am most thankful for! What are you most thankful for this year? 

I'm thankful for:
My Lord
My husband
My daughter
My little one on the way
All our family
Our new home
My husband's job
My dog 
My 4 1/2 acres
The list could go on and on and on and on... ;-)

I forgot to add...

I'm sorry to hear about your baby's rash. It always is so sad and all you want to do is fix it.

Coconut Oil works really well but sometimes doesn't seem to keep them dry enough. I love Burt Bee's baby cream but I've had that not work too.

My mom says this stuff ( works better than anything else she's ever tried (7+ children). I know it's made and marketed for animal use but all the ingredients are human safe and she absolutely loves it.

Hope you find something to help!

Blessings to you.

Hi Sarah-I am so excited to hear that you are doing a homebirth. I had my little girl at home. I t was very relaxing and a good experience. It is nice to be in the comfort of your own home and be able to be wherever in your house that makes you most comfortable to have the baby.
