T-Shirt Diapers

My brother had a ton of clothes he was getting rid of . . . I dug through them and snagged a ton of shirts and such to re-purpose for the boys.

My first several t-shirt diapers:

Outer is a t-shirt or polo, except the brown on top which is a lightweight cotton sweater.  Inner is microfleece, and the middle is another layer of t-shirt with a sewn in microfiber soaker.  They are made from the Very Baby pattern and have additional snap in soakers.  Love them!

I'm having a hard time resisting all the awesome thrift store shirts that have been calling my name . . . but I have more of my brother's t-shirts already waiting . . .

Garden Work

There was some straw and chaff left over from baling the barley, so we hauled it over to the garden and used it as a weed preventer.

Saturday morning . . . we had made a little progress during the week.  It had rained a bunch, and we needed to get the straw off the trailer so it didn't get hot and catch on fire.  I set up the playpen with a sheet over the top for Will.  Sam alternated between playing on his swing set and helping pull weeds/spread straw.
Sunday afternoon . . . complete. 
It hurt to blow-dry my hair,so I'd say it was a good workout.

I go back to work Thursday . . . I miss my coworkers but I'll miss my sweet baby more.  I like being a homemaker, and we have just found a bit of schedule these last couple weeks.  Oh well, the bills won't pay themselves.
