What a Week!

I am exhausted!  In a good way though; it has been a crazy week for us, but it’s been a good one!  School is just getting in the swing of things and I’m trying to find my groove at home.  I haven’t been able to just stay at home all day since Evangeline was born, so it has been a good change of pace.  But it’s so much different now with a baby!  Who knew babies took so much time and energy? 😛

In any case, I’ve managed to get some things done, although you might not believe me if you took a look at my house right now… hmm… But honestly, it was a productive week for having a sick baby!  First and most importantly I finally cured baby girl’s diaper rash which lasted for a very long time and had gotten pretty awful.  I tried everything to help it go away; finally we just had to spend a day without diapers and that gave it the air it needed to start clearing up.  I only really had one big clean up after an accident, so I consider that to have been a good day!

It also helps that we have already started loosely working on elimination communication (ECing or infant potty training) with her the last few weeks, so she almost never poops in her diaper anymore!  We have a cute little potty she sits on and she just goes!  How adorable is that?  Ok… so there could be more adorable things… but babies with no diapers are certainly cuter when you know they’re not going to poop on you :)

Also, in case you hadn’t heard, I started up my new blog last week.  Which has been loads of fun!  It could get addicting; I must be careful.  And last but not least I officially launched my new home business!!  It was perfect timing as the seminary had showcase for businesses, talents, crafts, etc. that seminary families can share and thus support each other.  It was a lot of fun, and I’m really looking forward to my chocolate tasting next week!  Feel free to join us if you can; it will be at my house on Tuesday evening; call if you need directions.  The more the merrier!

cute-hatOh!  And before I forget my Mom is in Germany!!! She just got there yesterday and they’re already sightseeing!  She’s there with my grandma and my aunt to see the live Passion play that happens only once every ten years.  An entire town puts it on!  How neat is that?

There she is on the right… isn’t she cute?!  I love that hat!  Perhaps later this week I will post some more of her pictures.  Germany is absolutely beautiful!  I told Jake he had to take me one day :)  Isn’t it cool that with technology I already have pictures of the places my mom went to today??

Anywho, I should probably go do the dishes or something.  Remember what I said about my house?  Yeah, I need to fix that… thanks for stopping in!  And if anyone is interested in donating to my Germany fund let me know 😛

Auf Wiedersehen!
