Psalm 131:2

Psalm 131:2 (New International Version)
2 But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me.

As much as I loved nursing my babies, there is something so special about them falling asleep on my lap without nursing. I still remember the first time my daughter cuddled up on my lap and fell asleep without nursing. It felt so good that she wanted to be with me just because I'm her mom and not because I had something to offer her.

I think God wants us to go to him for comfort and just to enjoy his presence. Sure, there are times when we will ask God for things, but there should be times when we don't ask for things too. God wants us to enjoy Him and seek Him to meet all of our needs.

Baby's Growing Up

My baby is now 22 months old. He sleeps in a BED. He goes potty several times a day. AND....he's FINALLY talking quite a bit. After having two babies so close together, it's weird not having one anymore. I'm mourning the loss of my baby a little bit today, but I am enjoying him as a toddler too. He's becoming very independent and doesn't cry anymore when I leave him with strangers. I don't know if I'll ever totally be ready to see my kids grow up though.

Great Giveaway This Week!!!

Head on over to The Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog to sign up for a great giveaway this week. They're giving away two Baby Kicks one-size pocket diapers.

Back on the wagon

I'm going to try this again. I've written two blog post in the past year, so I'm obviously not too commited to this endeavor. I'm going to try to update this at least every few days. We'll see how I do.

Cloth Diapers

I completely surprised myself recently and switched to cloth diapers. My older sister started using cloth diapers recently, and then a good friend switched too. After talking with both of them, I was up at night thinking about whether or not I should try it. It seemed like God was nudging me to try them. So...about a month ago, I went for it. I have no regrets. I really love them actually. They are soo cute and soft. I almost feel bad when I have to put a disposable diaper on him, because they don't seem nearly as comfortable. I feel good about keeping thousands of diapers out of landfills too.
