While We Were Out...

...the anniversary of my first blog post came and went. Oh well. Maybe something exciting will happen for my two-year anniv.

My parents are visiting for a few weeks and on Saturday morning we went to the Farmer's Market and then to The Husband's work so my Dad could get a tour. Then we drove to this Mennonite bakery/cafe about 20 miles a
way. It was tasty but crowded in there and just before our food came, I was holding up the Little Goat and my Mom noticed something running down her leg. ARGH!! All over her shirt, my sweater, almost my pants, and definitely her pants! So a very important note to you all: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WASTE YOUR MONEY ON TEDDY'S CHOICE DIAPERS FROM SUPERSTORE!!! THEY. SUCK. Every time (and I'm almost not exaggerating all - really!) we've had a major issue with leakage and as you know, it's irritating. So consider yourselves forewarned.

Okay, so after our semi-harrowing lunchtime experience (oh, did I mention we had to change her on the floor of the front seat of the car because the cafe has no public bathroom?), we headed back to town and stopped at a roadside stand for a photo op and some pumpkins. This place was great!
Everything a pumpkin stand should be. Hopefully next year, the Little Goat will be able to pose by herself on the bales.

Without further adieu.....Mmmm....pumpkins....

It's cold! It's windy! It's our very first family picture!

Somebody is NOT happy to be posing by some pumpkins.
Let's hope it's not an early sign of an aversion to pumpkin pie!!

Oh, the horrible leaking Teddy's Choice diapers. Ugh. My babies had a few public explosions too. Nasty!

Don't know if you read my post about the "100 things I've learnt since having a baby". I learned the hard way that only Pampers would do for us. Yuck.

I have a similar picture of the Boy with Santa on his first Christmas. You'd think Santa was a bad man, or something.

hey. what are you all doing bad-mouthing superstore diapers? We have tried a bunch of different store brand diapers and superstore ones get us through the night (unlike walmart, co-op etc.)

But very nice pictures by the way. We put the family one as out computer wall paper. he he.

The profile pic is weird. It has to be a picture that has a url (ie. that you've posted on your blog.) I don't know why you can't just upload from your computer. Go to help, choose help center and then choose profiles. It's not too hard. Can't wait to see what you choose for yours...

Nice choice. Ummm. Monkey is in size three... I'm sure there is someone else who could use them.

bren j. said...

yeah...that DID finally occur to me this afternoon. Duh, bren j. - the Monkey is almost a year old!! Well maybe I'll hang on to them until the Monkey's first sibling comes along...whenever that will be....

Hey aren't you guys using cloth diapers? We had leaks all the time with disposables, but not ONE with cloth. (so far...)

Beth - We're still using a disposable for nights.....and when Grama feels like putting one on...
