My Diaper Model

Marlie was chosen to appear on the GoodMama site again this week. She wasn't the winner, but I'm proud that her picture was picked to be on a page again.

Baby leggings

Today was my first attempt at making a pair of baby leggings. They were made from a pair of women's knee high socks. It was pretty easy and I'm pleased with how they turned out.

Video of Marlie

I made this video so Bryan could see Marlie's walking progress. She prefers crawling and isn't the least bit eager to walk. She is getting there though!

Marlie on the web

One of the brands of diapers that Marlie wears does a weekly photo contest. Goodmama is one of the most popular cloth diaper brands. People are all about entering the contest and take it very seriously. I entered a picture of Marlie for the first time last week. It was pretty poor quality so I didn't have any expectations for it. After going to the trouble of trying to get some shots of miss busy body, I figured I'd submit one anyway. Marlie didn't win the contest but I was pleasantly surprised that she was featured on the website! Here is a link to the page that she is on:

Harlem Voters Interviewed

My dad told me about this and I decided to search for it and hear it myself. This was another one of those things where all I could say was "Wow..."

I want to be Rainbow Brite - help me!

I was invited to a Halloween party and was racking my brain trying to come up with a costume. I came across Rainbow Brite and decided I MUST be her! My friends and I, who were all little girls during the 80s, love Rainbow Brite. This is definitely going to have to be a do it yourself costume though. Please share with me any ideas or tips you have on how I can pull this off.

I found this at my parents house last night and I think it would be a great foundation. That is if I can turn it into a dress. Do I look cute in it or what?!? I think the look on Marlie's face is funny too.
In my hands are a pair of baby leggings that I could incorporate somehow.


For reference, here's RB.


Here is also a link to some other homemade RB costumes.
