Diaper Laundry and Thankfulness

I am thankful. I am thankful that today is diaper laundry day. I am also thankful that I do not have enough diapers to cloth diaper full time... at least today I am! Rock has had some messy BMs 3 times today... i know... too much information lol. I don't really enjoy the dirty diaper laundry when I have to pre wash it. I am grateful that oRock is partially ECing... he has only been peeing in the toilet since he started solids except a few times... and today was one :)

Also, I am thankful that my hubby actually changed a diaper this afternoon. Normally he won't because he doesn't even know where to begin on cloth diapers... since it was disposables, he did. Then he realized it is a lot different changing a mobile baby.

I am thankful that we have a good heater this winter. It is getting cold out! I like the snow. It is beautiful, but it is still cold. Laat winter we were wrapped in blankets and pretty much just sat still reading, crafting and watching movies... that is more difficult when you have a squiggly baby. I am still trying to find a good outfit for Rock to go out in so he can play in the snow for the first time... I found some good gloves earlier today that he seemed to like chewing on  wearing. We normally just bundle him with blankets in the carseat when we hav weto go out so I don't have many bundling clothes for him. I sure it will be a lot differenet next winter but I am ok with that this year.

And I am thankful that Rock is easily entertained. I was able to bake many, many cookies this past week (to make up plates of christmas cookies for neighbors) while rock played with a chip clip and empty coffee container for part of the time. Also, hubby watched him while I was pulling the cookies in and out of the oven.

I am thankful that our landlord's family accepts us as part of the family. We were a part of their family Thanksgiving meal and are also invited to their Christmas party this weekend.
Most importantly, I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He came to earth as a mere babe to fulfill God's plan and that is why we celebrate this Christmas season.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.
I am bringing you good news
that will be a great joy to all the people.
Today your Savior was born in the town of David.
He is Christ, the Lord.
Luke 2:10, 11 (NCV)
