Here is one of the diapers I made for Ben.
It is very hard to get good pictures of it while he's wearing it. If it looks really bulky, that's because it is at the moment. It has several inserts in it for extra absorbency for bedtime. When I'm able to make some wool soakers, those will probably be better for nighttime pee soakage. They fit fairly trim during the day when he doesn't need all the extra padding. But I won't even be able to finish making all these diapers until after Christmas, I'm sure, so I'm still doing a mix of cloth and disposables right now. And you know? Cloth really isn't hard to do. And I really like that any rash he gets wearing disposables is gone within a day of using just cloth diapers. And I also really like to sew and knit. It just kind of works for me, I guess.
You know how I posted about performance anxiety? Well, you're about to see the closest I am probably ever going to get to singing in public by myself again (well, besides the errant karaoke every now and then). We got a good Black Friday deal on a digital video camera, and I decided to record myself singing. I figured I'd probably end up deleting it because I always end up hating how I sound in any recording. But I watched it, and aside from my recurring ped lip and various strange faces, it actually didn't make me want to vomit. So I'm sharing it with you because my blog audience is pretty small and mostly family and friends, and I don't have to look at you while you watch it (or don't watch it). And if you have something bad to say about it, you can tell each other about it and not me! There's a reason I'm not destined for American Idol, people. And Simon Cowell's meanness is that reason! Well, that and inadequate talent, lol.
The best part of this video is Ben trying to open the door in the background in the last minute. That kid is so stinking cute. As soon as we can get a video of him laughing hysterically, I promise to post it. His laugh is so contagious and adorable, but I am pretty biased, I guess.
