The goods.

Well the diapers and sippy cups are here! I buy the cadillac of cloth diapers. I use them all the time for my babies and to me it's worth the money. You can cloth diaper successfully for much less money. So far we have been very blessed (by all of you) and have had to spend very little money on diapers, and they will last for many children, especially since I can mend any velcro bits that may not hold up.
We had some extra money left over and I decided to spend it on some "Safe Sippy" cups. I LOVE these cups! They do drip a little since they wanted to make them not so hard to drink out of for babies. Since the only thing I usually give my kids to drink is water it's not a big deal for me. I am planning on ordering two more of these so that Adon and Emma can use them for water bottles. They are really great! We got a blue one and a teal one (which they call green).

And please head over to "my charming kids" to keep up with Stellan and what is going on. Things are getting worse and this family needs our prayers for whatever God has for them. This all seems so sureal for me, I can't imagine what they are going through.

Yay for the diapers and sippies!

I can't believe it about Stellan either - so sad - I really hope he gets better SOON. If he doesn't, I know God will still be glorified, but I just hate it when that happens to little babies.

The best way to clean cloth diapers is to pre-rinse them off in the toilet using a Hand Bathroom Bidet Sprayer. So convenient and if you are trying to help the environment (and your pocket book) you can give it a double whammy by virtually eliminating toilet paper use at the same time as you benefit from using it on the diapers, by using it on yourself. I think Dr. Oz on Oprah said it best: "if you had pee or poop on your hand, you wouldn't wipe it off with paper, would you? You'd wash it off" Available at they come in an inexpensive kit and can be installed without a plumber. And after using one of these you won't know how you lasted all those years with wadded up handfuls of toilet paper. Now we're talking green and helping the environment without any pain.

Where do you order the diapers and cups from?
