Almost Time

3 weeks. I have 3 weeks until our baby girl graces us with her presence and our lives go into adjustment mode. I'm SO ready.

Tax season is officially over (thank goodness!) so I feel like myself again. I haven't had to bring my computer home to do work in a week and it feels AWESOME. I'm still super tired from being 8+ months pregnant, but at least I'm not tired and angry at the world for having to work so darn much.

A very sweet friend threw a cloth diaper shower for me, and it was a great success! It was awesome getting to see friends and family and just chatting with everyone, and we scored some great loot! I think we're all set for our cloth diaper adventure.

We've actually had Punkin in cloth for a couple of months now, and it's been amazing to not have to panic when I'm down to one diaper and have no money. That's happened more times than I can count! The cloth I had him in before was a cheap brand that I bought on eBay. I didn't want to spend too much when I'm hoping to start really potty training soon. It's been going really well so far, and we were gifted some diapers that work for Punkin as well as baby girl down the line so I'm able to use those now too. I love them! The difference in quality is amazing. We also got a diaper sprayer, which I can tell you is a lifesaver when it comes to cloth diapering!

Diapering a newborn I'm sure will be a little different, but now that I've gotten a taste of it I'm pretty confident. Plus, not having to buy diapers for two different kids is already SO worth it!

Austin has been moving forward steadily with his comedy. He did a show in Orlando last weekend when he was in town for his aunts wedding, and they're going to give him some (paid!) feature spots hopefully in the near future. Him getting paid to do comedy would be amazing for both of us, so hopefully things keep moving in the right direction.

I've been slowly starting to panic over the little things we still need for baby girl. I haven't gotten her room finished and I'm starting to realize I have very little newborn and 0-3 month clothing for her. I'm hoping to get a few more hand-me-downs and I have another shower that my awesome sister is throwing me, so hopefully after that we'll be set! At least she'll have cute diapers to cover her tush. :)

Hopefully my next post will be before baby girl and will not be so very boring. But boring is good right now! The less chaos, the better!
