Time is flying. Abbey is 10 months old today and I feel like I've only blinked. I don't take enough time to sit and soak her up or play with her just to watch her laugh. I'm so occupied with school and the house and when I am trying to entertain her it's usually so I can get a reprieve to do something productive. It seems that the most productive and valuable thing I could do is to sit and stare at my everchanging and quickly growing girl.I Heard A Lion. I love her little rosie cheeks and dolly mouth. I love how she kept a hold on her keys even when she finally gave in to sleep. And her little feet are so pudgy and little. I have to focus on the babiest things about her these days. I know time won't slow down--but I think I should.

Cloth Diapers Day #1
Abbey and I went to Baby Bradley Diaper Co. yesterday afternoon to buy Abbey some new cloth diapers! We decided to make the cost effective switch because Abbey has had some hellacious diaper rash. We went with the very basic cloth diaper and plastic
cover combo. We bought 12 diapers and 2 covers. We also got a laundry bag so they could be separate from the rest of our laundry. It ended up be
ing about 40 dollars. We want to try it out before we invest in the super-fancy-one-size-fits-all diapers that come with a pouch you just put your absorbent pad in. They seem so much easier!
So Abbey started wearing her diapies last night and did fine. She wa
s a little damp around the edges this morning but no big deal! We threw the cloth and cover in the laundry and moved along. Well, she took about a 3 hour nap earlier. I went to wake her up so she could eat and...whoa. Her pee had soaked through the cloth, through the cover, and her sheets were sloshy. Nothing I cant handle. The problem is, we only bought 2 diaper covers. And they're both of out use at this point. So...Abbey has spent the better part of the afternoon naked. On a towel. Thank God for wood floors.
And she hasn't even pooped yet.
