Another first!

Today Blake finally drank out of his sippy cup! He seemed to be having problems transitioning from the bottle to a hardish sippy cup, so I tried the Nuk sippy cups (since he uses their bottles, why not), and it was a good buy. :) The sippy cup top is out of the same silicone that the bottle nipples are, but a little firmer and a little more controlled flow. Worked wonders! I'm glad. :D

Had some more sperm donor drama today, but thinking it might finally be over with. :) We can only hope!

I've started putting Blake in his crib to sleep. Tonight would be night number four that he sleeps there. :) He does good in there. He still doesn't sleep through the night, so it's a little more of a pain on my part, but oh well. He's fallen off my bed twice, so I figured that I guess it's time for the crib. Except I put him in it tonight, looked over a minute later, and his little head pops up. Guess he decided that he loves standing up! Little stinker. :)

I finally have pics up of my diaper! Woo hoo! I definitely need to practice making more and improve my sewing, but it's getting there. A lot better than I was when I first made my wipes! I surged those though, which in my opinion, is a lot harder! Less forgiving more so. But anyway, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out! It's made out of flannel. Flannel doesn't snappi too well, so I've been using pins. I'm not too efficient at pinning, so I need some practice. And for me, it was really hard to pin through. But maybe it was just me! I think I'm gunna try to make some with cotton knit over the wings, to make it more snappy friendly. :) I also want to make some covers with this pattern out of fleece and knit on the wings. I just have a lot of ideas for these diapers. I'm so excited! I need school to get out so I can devote more attention to these instead of schoolwork. :) A couple of people have mentioned that I should sell these. :) Would you buy one? Maybe I'll think about it when I have more time.
