On June 22, 2012, Connor had his first big boy haircut! Like, all out airplane seat, cape, scissors, and sheers haircut.

The place we went was called Pigtails and Crewcuts and they basically know what is up! When the kiddos get squirmy, you work faster. He was such a big boy the whole time while getting his ears lowered. We chose the airplane seat, because Daddy loves airplanes. Connor sat, munched on some animal crackers, watched a little Toy Story, and totally got his hair cut... and was ridiculously cute while doing so.

Pre- haircut shagginess...

Faux hawkin' it.

Who knew a haircut could provide Mama and Dada with so much entertainment. Oh how life changes. ;)

New Beginnings!

It has been TOO long since I have visited blog world! So much has happened within the last two weeks that I can hardly believe it was just a little over a week ago that I was finishing up my last day at Walker.

I'm having an uber hard time finding a word that would describe this last week. Surreal maybe? I have FINALLY been able to catch up on housework and laundry, and catch up almost completely on editing.  I also spent an amazing amount of time on the floor playing with sweet baby C,  and met some completely awesome moms at a new play group... and TONS more! My to-do list is actually shrinking.

Since school has ended, we have also decided to cloth diaper! We have ordered the first of our cute little stash from Rainshine Designs. Can I say LOVE? They are seriously adorable, and so so well made. Megan is a WAHM with an impeccable skill. Serious talent going on there.

Right now we have a combination of AIOs, AI2s, and pockets and are going to try to decide which ones we like best. Would love love to hear what you all have had success with!! I'm also in search of some good inserts/boosters for the pockets and a detergent/cleaning system that has worked for you all as well. I have currently ordered Nellie's from Amazon, but am interested in Rockin Green, as well. My hang up on Rockin Green is that I have read so many reviews about it being to harsh on the skin!

Right now we're doing a cold pre-rinse, hot wash, 2 cold rinses, warm (not hot) dry. With a dry pail system in the bathroom...Considering bac-out possibly, and of course a possible once a month stripping with Dawn.

Question though: instead of using dryer sheets in your dryer, what kind of anti-cling measures have you had success with? I'm dying to know! I would hate to damage or cause my diapers to not work because I have a soft laundry addiction....

So... with that, tell me what you think!!
