Sleepwear Difficulties...

Am I the only person to have this problem??  I can't find decently priced maternity sleepwear anywhere!  It's getting colder at night so I would LOVE to find a long nightgown that's full enough to accommodate a soon-to-be growing belly and cute enough so I don't look like a granny or overstuffed lumpy flannel body pillow.

So far, all I've been able to find are delivery/hospital gowns and short nursing gowns.  Now nursing gowns are great and can be used longer than just a plain old maternity gown, BUT most of them don't look like they're cut full enough to contain a fully pregnant belly without busting at the seams.  I've seen a few pants/shirts, but I'm not really a pj pant/shirt sleeper.  I'm more comfortable in an over-sized t-shirt or plain old nightgown.

I know, I know...why don't I just make my own?  Well, honestly I just don't want to.  I mean I could but I know it wouldn't turn out the way I want it to so I would just have to keep looking anyway so what's the point?

Anyone have any suggestions as to where I could find a cute cold weather appropriate maternity nightgown??  I hope someone can help me out!

FuzziBunz Review

I was looking through some old pictures and posts today and realized that I've never posted a review about FuzziBuns OS diapers.  I am a HUGE fan!  These diapers are wonderful!  Now that David can easily rip off diapers with hook & loop closures they are one of my go to diapers and I really do wish I had more!  One of my favorites is the Big Sky color.  It is a beautiful light but vibrant blue.

I'm really not a big fan of a lot of "one size" diapers because they usually have outside snaps and are pretty bulky.  The FuzziBunz has button-adjusted waist and leg casings which make things so much easier.  Adjust them when needed and you don't have to worry about changing or resetting them until your little one grows.  They also come with replacement elastic so if it does happen to wear down (none of ours has yet) you have a backup set to swap out with.

The FuzziBunz have such a trim fit, but they are so absorbent it's really amazing!  The one size also come with an extra insert for naptime or overnight use.  If you haven't tried FuzziBunz yet, go check them out!  You'll love them!

*This was NOT a paid or sponsored post.  I bought the diaper myself and didn't receive any discounts for writing a review.  I just really like these diapers ;)*

CSN Stores and Big Boy Bed

Now that David is climbing in, on and out of everything it's about time to move him from his crib into a big boy bed.  What better place to start searching for a bed that CSN Stores!  With over 200 stores to choose from they have everything from a platform bed to a race car bed!  With such a large selection, I'm certain we'll be able to find something for our little monkey boy from CSN Stores!

Nine Weeks

I’m nine weeks pregnant and I don’t usually use this word because it’s a very strong word, but I hate this stage of pregnancy. It’s not the morning sickness, the sore boobs or the weird aches and stabbing pains from a growing uterus. It’s the unknown; the fact that right now there’s no way for me to know if the baby is doing ok. It’s been two weeks since my last appointment and there’s a little over two weeks until my next one. This is the stage where you don’t look pregnant, you don’t really feel pregnant (other than the aforementioned symptoms), you probably haven’t gained any weight (although you might feel bloated), you can’t feel the baby moving around, and there’s no way of knowing that everything is still going well. I don’t mean that I’m overly worried or paranoid about the pregnancy; I’m just ready to be able to feel the baby move so I know everything is OK!

I just saw a post from That Crazy Lewis House on facebook asking about favorite soup recipes and it REALLY makes me long for cool weather!  I sent her this recipe for Taco Soup and thought I'd share it on here too because it's super simple and ever so yummy!
