My wish list.

See below for edits.

So as I'm sure you can guess, I don't really need a lot for this baby. But there are a few things that I would really like and that would be really useful.

So this is another thing that would be a huge blessing to us. These diapers have great reviews and I'm a huge fan! I have used cloth diapers for some period of time with all of the kids and I do have diapers, but these would just make the whole thing easier and simpler. After three kids your diapers start to get a little thin and worn. I have had to retire a lot of them and some of them were never that great (fit wise) to begin with.

Okay the source that I had to buy these diapers from was the wrong one and was in the states and will not ship them here. Dangit! So now I'm on the hunt for another place. I will still gladly take money to go towards buying diapers though. Thanks.

I know that I probably seem really selfish to people but I'm going to go ahead and say it anyway. If these things are just too much, I would be very happy to take some money to go towards some of these diapers. I have been so blessed and I have more than enough of most things. This little guys doesn't really need anything. Diapers would be a huge blessing to our family as they help us financially and I also prefer to use cloth over disposable because of the environmental and health benifits. I would rather someone give me money to buy one diaper than buy me a whole pack of disposable diapers. I hope that you can all understand this. It may not be so fun to wrap up, but in the end it is the most benificial thing you could do for me and Buster.

Not only that but you will be blessing me with time. I will have to make diapers for this little guy if I do not get to buy some. Right now making them is about the only thing in our budget but it takes time... about an hour a diaper, and it's not nearly so nice a diaper.

If I think of any other things that I would like or need I'll be sure to add it to the list, but so far that's it. We're pretty set for baby boys around here... now if Buster manages to come out a Bustette for some reason.. then we'll deffinately need clothes, but as it is, we're set.

Edit -
Okay so I thought of a few more things that we (I) could use. Gift certificates to Reitmans would be great. I know that there are a few clothes items that I will be lacking once I'm out of my maternity clothes... some shirts you can wear with a pregnant belly, but they sure don't look so hot when the belly deflates!

Another thing is a nursing bra. Now I realize that this is kind of a personal thing and I'd rather not post my size on here for all of the world to see. The bra that I've already ordered which I would like another of is 45.00. I know that seems like a lot for a bra but I've nursed two babies with junky nursing bras and it's just not worth it.

So again these are all not things that are fun to wrap, but are really the things that I need and will have a use for... maybe we should just have wishing well? Sorry to seem money hungry, just being honest about what we can use around here. I really don't want to seem ungrateful and I'm sorry if it comes across that way. I hope that you understand where I'm coming from.

Blessings and many thanks!
Another Edit-

Something else that I love for my babies is the Baby line from Burt's Bees. I love the shampoo bar and the buttermilk bath soak. It's all I use on them.
And this is another thing that I use a lot of. It's about the best diaper creme out there! Just ask a goat ;)

I don't think you are money hungry. You are jsut being honset. Which is better then getting 7 pairs of pants all the same and the same size and saying a pliot thank you. (no I never had to do it)!! But here's to your honesty. Keep it up! And I hope you get everything you need to diaper your little "person"!! :)

I found a website today called: they are located in Ontario and seem to have a good selection. Not sure if you've seen this site already, but I thought I'd post it anyways!
