Tomorrow Is the Day!

As you may have guessed, Sophia will be turning 1 in May.  I can't quite believe how this year has flown by.  What better way to celebrate her birthday than with a huge Blog Bash?!  Of course, we'll be celebrating In Real Life too, but I didn't want to leave the SEBG readers out! As you may have guessed, the theme of the Event and her Birthday Party is a 1950s theme.  It's only fitting because my family and I have always enjoyed Car Shows and the Oldies.  Sophia has no choice {well, until she gets a bit older...} but to enjoy them too!  She went to her first car show when she was only 4 days old!  You'll see the '50s theme reoccurring throughout the Event. A Bit About the Event: The Rock 'N Rollin' Teeny Boppin' 1st Birthday Bash will be held during the entire month of May, with at least one giveaway per day! The giveaways … [Read more...]

Climbing. For real?

Climbing Collage

I was drawing a blank on what to write about today.  I'll admit that all of my creative energy is going into the upcoming Rock 'N Rollin' Teeny Boppin' 1st Birthday Bash {totally love saying that, can you tell!?} So, while I was picking up the {continual} mess around the house yesterday, Sophia gave me inspiration.  Inspiration to turn to my blog and say to all of you, "What am I going to do with this girl!?!?" Did we really go from walking to climbing in 1 week?  What do I do?All of these actions happened within 10 minutes.  First, she found her walker {that she never, ever used} without the seat in it, as I was washing it, and proceeded to climb on top of it, while my back was turned, not 3 feet away from her!  I got her down {after I rushed for my iPhone to capture this moment because I knew Rob wouldn't believe me!}  Then, she … [Read more...]

Doable Diapers: Rumparooz Review

Rumparooz cloth Diapers

If you've been reading my blog, or follow via Facebook/Twitter, for awhile now, you have probably seen me link to the Doable Diapers blog or Re-Tweet info from them.  Andrea is the Mom behind the blog and the Doable Diapers shop and she's an invaluable source for all things cloth diapering related! Doable Diapers recently sponsored Sophia and I with a diaper to use at the Great Cloth Diaper Change Event that was held this past weekend.  You can see my post about the event, here.  Andrea sent us a Rumparooz in the most lovely print, Lux.  I asked for a Snaps closure, as I already own a Spring Rumparooz in Aplix {purchased from DoableDiapers.com}. When the diaper came in the mail, I do what I always do {and I know you are the same}... I tore open the package and put the fluff right into my diaper laundry to prep it.  The Rumparooz … [Read more...]

Walking.

Walking Collage

That's right, Sophia is walking. Just in time, too.  Since she was around 6 months, all she wanted to do was stand.  She wanted anyone and everyone to hold her hands so she could stand up.  I made the proclamation that she would walk before she turned 11 months.  It was a clever guess, because I wasn't sure if she would start walking at 9 or 10 months.  Even on the eve of her 8 month birthday, I wondered if she would skip crawling altogether and go straight to walking... but she proved that theory wrong the very same night. So, when Sophia wasn't walking last week, one week before she would turn 11 months, I worried that once again she would prove me wrong.  Until last Friday afternoon... I was on the phone with my Mom and Sophia let go of the cabinets and started to walk, which she had been doing quite a bit, but only taking 4-5 … [Read more...]

Great Cloth Diaper Change

GCDC Finished

How many of you participated in the GCDC this weekend?  If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'll give you the quick backstory.  The Real Diaper Association came up with a fantastic plan to raise cloth diaper awareness and set a Guinness Book of World Records for the most cloth diapers changed at one time.  Although there still hasn't been an "official" proclamation of a record being set on Saturday, I am sure we were successful {fingers crossed}! I attended the "semi-local" event in Knoxville, TN.  I was super excited about the event and really looking forward to meeting other cloth diapering Mama's!  The event did not disappoint at all!  There were 40 babes who participated at our location and we had a great array of prizes and gift bags that were given out.  Although I didn't win a prize, it was just as exciting see all of … [Read more...]

Happy Easter!

This is Sophia's first Easter and we're spending it... hiding eggs!  We'll see how much she enjoys it {and I'll be sure to share a picture too!} Since it's Easter, I felt like it was a great time to update you on how our search for a home church is going. We have only visited two different churches.  One was a slightly new established church that is marketed towards a contemporary crowd.  We thought we would love it... quite the opposite.  We just didn't feel "at home".  There were quite a few reasons, but we'll just leave it at that. The other church that we've visited is where we've been going for the last 4 Sundays.  I feel like it has more of a "teaching" atmosphere rather than a "preaching", if that makes sense.  Everyone is very friendly, without being pushy.  The youth Minister visited our home after our first time there and … [Read more...]

DIY Cloth Wipes Solutions

You may remember that when I featured the Organic Bamboo Velour Cloth Wipes from Two Sweet Potatoes a week ago, I asked for some tips.  For starters, I wanted a good wipe solution recipe!  I know I can buy different types but I love to DIY!  Secondly, I asked for tips on how to get poo off of the wipes {a major snag in why I don't use cloth wipes exclusively}. A few SEBG readers came through and I want to share their tips with you! Wipe Solution Recipes: From Leann at Cloth Diaper Diaries: This wipes solution is by far the most unique I've ever seen!  Leann actually makes a foaming wipe solution.  Check out her DIY post to get lots of detailed instructions and pictures! She also let me know that she's been adding a couple of drops of Tea Tree Oil lately.  {This must be the magic ingredient as it's found in all 3 solutions … [Read more...]

Happy Earth Day!

At the risk of sounding like every other green Mommy blogger today, Fuzzibunz said it best with their special edition diaper... We're not doing anything special today because we'll be celebrating Earth Day tomorrow, as a part of the Great Cloth Diaper Change event!  I'm super excited to meet other, semi-local CD Mamas!!  {The event we're going to is 1.5 hours away from our house.}  We're attending the Knoxville chapter of the GCDC and it's said to have one of the largest amounts of attendees... Internationally!!!  Wow.  Watch for a special post on Monday where I share the event with you all! What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day? … [Read more...]

The Sun is Shining.

The sun is shining in east Tennessee today and you know what?  Sophia and I are going to enjoy it and you should too {wherever you are}!  I vowed to never let the fear of Melanoma returning, keep me from enjoying my life. This event was not meant to be somber or scare anyone, it was meant as a proclamation of "I'm beating this disease by being proactive."  I want to raise awareness that Skin Cancer can {and does} happen to people just like you... and that there IS something that we can all do to decrease the number of cases of people affected by it. Stay Safe in the Sun... and have Fun! … [Read more...]
