Baby posts...

I was just going to use my main blog to ponder about baby stuff, but when I made a blog just for little Cohen, I decided to start blogging my baby thoughts there... Like "Hmmm... what kind of diapers should I use?" and "Should I get a 3D ultrasound, or is it a waste of time and money?" So if you want to read my baby rambles, pop on over to Counting Down to Cohen


Diapers Part Deux

So I have been doing a little research and I am thinking about hiring a diaper service, at least while we live in this apartment with no washer/dryer in unit... I think we will still use some disposables (the biodegradable kind) for when we are out and about and at church (no nursery worker wants to deal with clothies)... The service starts at about $19 a week and about $30 to start for the diaper hamper and diaper covers (less than a Diaper Genie)... and that is if we exclusively use clothies... I have to figure out if that is reasonable... The numbers show that disposables cost just a little bit more than using a diaper service... But $40 savings per year is better than no savings... And I won't have 6500 disposables sitting in a landfill for 500 years weighing on my conscience... I still have to talk to Faith and find out how many I might need per week if I am using some bio-disposables...


I have been thinking hard about what kind of diapers I would like to use... I hate the idea of loading truckloads of non-biodegradable diapers into a landfill, but we don't have a washer and dryer in our apartment, so cloth is out, and G-Diapers are stupid expensive... The next best eco-friendly option seems to be Earth's Best brand of biodegradable, disposable diapers... They are a bit more pricey than Huggies or other name brands, and we can pretty much only get them at Babies R Us, but I think the sacrifice may be worth it... A friend of mine uses them with his little one and says they work well... Now I just have to think of an eco-friendly option for disposing of the darn things since a Diaper Genie would make it pointless (biodegradable diapers would be useless if they were trapped in a plastic bag forever)... Any advice?

3D/4D Ultrasounds

I am thinking that maybe I'd like to get 3D/4D ultrasounds done like Faith's seen here, there is a place in town that does them for $125, the least expensive I have seen is around $99 and that was in the bay area (easily $25 in gas)... This is the site for the place that does them... What do you think guys?

Been Busy

The fam came up to visit this weekend and we crammed 8 people into my 2 bed 2 bath (well 1.5 bath when they got here, thanks dad for re-caulking the back tub) apartment like the Mexicans we are! We ate (a lot) and swam everyday and just had a good time! Thanks for making the trek guys, I know it wasn't easy for (or with) the kiddos! I also got to spend time with the extended fam and see my new little cousin Charlotte (I see playdates in our future Ana) and some friends who now live out of town (thanks for a fun night Marky and Julie)! I have been a bit of a busy bee :) I like it that way... keeps me out of trouble hee hee... I will post some pics when I get them from my mom (so maybe now lol)...
