May Randoms

These months are just flying by. DS has his 9 month checkup today. Time slow down.

I intended on posting a witty meme but this app is actin a fool.

    So cute!!
  • We're going out of town this weekend for the first time since P was about 1mo. It's an 11hr car ride and we're staying in a hotel. Added to the fact that I can't eat out most places due to Ps soy/dairy allergy, meaning I'm taking all my food for the weekend, and the fact that P has been sleeping badly again the last week, I am very much dreading it.....

  • @FTM53 I love it. Did you order it online? 
  • Is anyone else finding that as their babe(s) get older, you require more than a normal sized diaper bag? Mine is overflowing and that's before snacks and what not. I use his diaper bag as my bag too to cut down on how many bags I lug around. My husband thinks I'm nuts for wanting a big Mary poppins bag but I hate having to unpack the entire bag just to get something from the bottom.

  • @DachshundMomma - interesting...I have a HUGE diaper bag and have been considering downsizing, but maybe I'll wait, haha.

  • @DachshundMomma YESSSSS.  I feel like all I ever do is think about better ways to re-org the diaper bags.  Yes, I have 2 now so I have a backup when one gets so messy from people digging in it who don't know the method to my organizing madness and just throw stuff back in.  Plus, now that we need solid snacks and such I feel like I need to add a lunchbox with an ice pack...how do I fit that in there?!
    kburg15jomama1618
  • I had a very full diaper bag with DD1 but now that I have 2 I feel like I'm usually not gone for more than 3 hours so I don't need as much. I have wipes, 3 diapers, extra outfit for both girls, brush, bandaids,snacks, my phone and wallet.

  • I used to bring the large diaper bag everywhere when C was little, now for small trips no longer than a few hours I carry around an insulated lunch box in my purse for snacks and I can fit a few diapers, wipes, a toy, and a back up onesie/outfit. Now that is officially warm, I no longer have to carry all of the bulky stuff (coat, mittens, hat, blanket) and back up bulky stuff.

    @DachshundMomma yep, highlights.com! 

    I use a very big purse (large tote size) as a diaper bag.

    I have a pull out diaper holder (think very big wallet). It has 4-6 diapers, wipes, and diaper cream along with a portable change pad and the diaper garbage bags. Then in the middle of the purse goes that, a change of clothes, a nursing cover, some snacks (baggies of cherrios, carton of puffs, ect...), a table toy, one burp blanket, a pack of hand sanitizing wipes, and his cup. In the pockets go a couple of teethers, small sunscreen, small hand sanitizer, my ID and charge card, and a lipgloss/chapstick. 
  • Backpack for P, super simple canvas tote for my stuff...I find it way easier to carry a backpack+purse+baby then juggling a lot of bulky one-shoulder bags that attack me when I bend over and let stuff fall out. Backpacks can be stuffed silly too! Ours is a cute monster backpack that P could use himself later if he wants to.

  • @FTM53 *raises hand* me me me! My mom got Highlights Hello for E and I think I mentioned it in the book thread. She absolutely loves them.

    @holly142 congratulations! Best of luck selling your house.

    @winnie1122 hope everything goes ok!

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one. Our diaper bag is small and ideal for short trips but I can't fit much in it beyond absolute necessities  (aka, no toys or food for either of us). I just hate having to unpack and repack every time I need something from not directly on top. I'm going to scope out targets selection of totes and backpacks today when I go.

  • @FTM53 Looking into Highlights as we "speak"!! What a great idea!! 

    @holly142 How exciting!! Congratulations on the offer!! Hoping for a quick sell, too.

    I carry around a multi-kid ridiculous sized diaper bag most of the time, but I also have a smaller one I've been trying to use more. The big one has too many toys and gets too cluttered, but I'm so attached to all the pockets...
    DachshundMommajomama1618
  • Cute!! Are they for your mom and hub's mom? And one for you?
    FTM53
  • That plate gets all the heart eyes! The bags are for my mom, MIL, and my step mom :)

  • @LDSJM123 Right?! Hahaha I'm ordering L the tip your cup up and living in a toddler paradise. I'm debating between coffee and wine shirt or the vanilla ice one for me! 
    LDSJM123
  • FTM53FTM53 member
    I want all the shirts! The coffee and wine and vanilla ice are so happening and I will be checking back for the wish I was little bit taller and Park it like it's hot for DS

  • What kind of paint are you guys using for these projects?  Anything specific/baby safe....or anything goes? I have a free saturday this week...and it will be chilly...this seems like a great idea :D
    babycakesday
  • I just used some type of fabric paint. Not baby safe. Wasn't too worried about it. When we start finger painting though, I'll get something safe.

    I used enamel/acrylic paint (made the plate top-shelf dishwasher safe). I just watched him carefully and wiped his hands as soon as I got the print. Paint is nontoxic, but not food safe.

  • Oh man..I hadn't thought of Mother's Day gifts yet for MIL and my mom. To Pinterest!
    LDSJM123
  • Perfect!  We will me making a trip to hobby lobby, haha.
    LDSJM123FTM53
  • I've already got Father's Day gifts planned out they just need to be done. Ask me about Mother's Day in 11 days though? Gah. I don't know what to do for my mom and MIL.
