Gotta get some Goodmamas!!

I LOVE Goodmama diapers! I haven't tried their Goodmama ONE or the Goodmama Goodnights, but their regular fitteds are the majority of John-Michael's current stash. This is thanks to an AWESOME sale that Goodmama had back in August. We normally could not afford these diapers as they are expensive. But you get what you pay for. :)

These diapers are SUPER cute and SUPER absorbent with Bamboo velour and Bamboo fleece. I LOVE being able to put these adorable diapers on my little guy.

Here is John-Michael showing off his Navy one. I need to get pics of him wearing his others. ;)

Diapering fitting tutorial

So here is John-Michael in various NB diapers. These were all taken when he was roughly a month old and btwn 9 and 10lbs (all of the lower pictures). For some reason I don't have a picture of a KL0. I will have to get that, but he is almost 11 lbs now. He has only worn 1 sposie diaper and that was his very first diaper that they put on in the nursery while I was finishing my c-section. Once we got to our recovery room, that came off and the wonderful squishiness was put on!!

Here is his first diaper. It was a DDNB orange. I appliqued a matching shirt for this as well. The diaper was pretty large at first and one reason why I went to the reds to wear. He was 7lbs 9oz at birth.

Here he is in the XS Thirsties AIO on the day he came home. He was 6lbs and 15oz in this picture.

Here he is at a week old and weighing 7lbs and 2oz (roughly). It is a KL0

here he is in a DD NB red diaper. This was taken 2 days after the above picture.

This picture shows the XS Thirsties cover. Taken same day as photo above.

Some thoughts - the Darling Diaper Free NB pattern in the red was my favorite along with KL0s when John-Michael was first born. They were easy to sew up and fit great. I made them with 4 layers each (1 knit, 2 flannel (or one flannel and one sherpa), sharpa (wicking layer) or crushed panne for wicking layer. I also made some lay in soakers for more absorbancy. Once the umbilical cord came off, the DDNB orange was my favorite.

The covers I used were Diaperaps NB (hospital version and regular version) and Thirsties XS. That is a BSWW in Small in the Froggy pattern under the Little Beetle.

He is almost 11lbs now and can still wear all of the diapers I made and all of the ones below. The DDNBs that I made with Aplix don't fit as well anymore then the ones with snaps.

Joshua's First Haircut

So yesterday we took Joshua to Bangs 'N Bows Hair Boutique in Mt. Pleasant for Joshua's first haircut. It was a cute little salon dedicated to children. It was pricey, but for a first haircut, the expense was worth it.

Too interested in the train table to look up at Mommy and show off his haircut.

Joshua's Girlfriend???

Yeah, they are WAY to young for this. LOL. Joshua's best friend is Rowan. Today after John-Michael's baptism, they surprised us with this:

and then THIS happened:

Of course, I was no where around. I was taking John-Michael out to the car and my two friends as one needed to get back on the road (5 hour drive ahead of her).

All I can say is that it must be his Daddy's influence. LOL

So, since I have neglected the blog a bit (ok, a lot), I guess I should post some back posting stuff.

Here are some pictures from Joshua's Easter. Unfortunately, Joe had to leave early that morning, so we were only able to get some photos with him before he left. Joshua enjoyed picking up Easter eggs and putting them in his basket. :)

My kick in the pants....

My BFF went into labor and had her DD#2 on April 1st. Since I was still nesting and was bored, it was time for me to start sewing.

I sat down and made 18 wipes and 2 diapers for her. These are diapers #2 & #3 for me (#1 is just to FUGLY to ever been seen. LOL)




Welcome John-Michael Flynn D*

Mr. and Mrs. Sweetheart

proudly welcome

John-Michael Flynn D*

Born May 1, 2009
8:07 am

weighing 7lbs and 9oz

Short Birth Story:

John-Michael was born by repeat cesarean section. Everything went smoothly. I was eating breakfast when I got back to my recovery room (just a little bit). By lunch, I was eating a full meal and still feeling great. Saturday morning, I was up walking around, had showered and put on my regular street clothes. I was able to leave after 48 hours (Sunday).

3 days later, he was weighed and he had gained 3 ounces since leaving the hospital. At his two week appointment he was up to 8lbs and 2oz which is above his birth weight! Breastfeeding is definitely going well this time!!!

John-Michael has also been cloth diapered since diaper #2. The nursery nurse put him in a sposie until we got to our recovery room and cut put him in a cute diaper. I will be posting pictures of our cute newborn stash soon!!
