Cloth diapers II

Sad story: We had to give up on the cloth diapers for Kjersten. Her skin kept getting a rash when she wore them. For a time it was because there was so much build-up on the diaper and I wasn't washing them correctly, but after many deep cleanses, her skin still doesn't like them. She is prone to eczema, as inherited from yours truly. Hopefully the next baby will be able to wear them because we invested a lot of money into these. I confess that I miss the cloth diapers, and I feel guilty using disposables. I am trying to eliminate any extra waste from our home. I may give it one more try, and Jonas will most likely roll his eyes at me. :)

On a pregnancy note, I've been having lots of Braxton-Hicks contractions lately, which is sort of fun. And I took a delicious nap. I love naps! I woke up after about 15 minutes, decided I didn't want to be awake yet, and went back to sleep. Aahhhh.

We are off to my sister's in-law's for Thanksgiving tomorrow. What are your Turkey Day plans? Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
