Baby #6 is 9mths

We have had some cooler weather and I am loving baby#6 and her wool longies. I purchased several pairs from some really talented knitters but they were a bit pricey. I had made some covers with up cycled wool sweaters and decided to make some longies. I found a wool/angora sweater at the thrift shop that is super soft. I brushed off the sewing machine and whipped up some super cute ruffled butt longies. They are so sweet and I love how cuddly baby is in them. Now I have to go find my stash of wool and make some more.. this is addicting

New wool longies

Baby #6 is almost 9 months old! I can't get over how fast she is growing, she is at a whopping 22 lbs. I am seeing her become more independent and trying to do things on her own. Having a baby in the house again after such a long break is really fun.

I have been very pleased with the cloth diapers. They have changed so much since I used them with #1 and #2. They are so much easier and CUTE to boot. We use fitted diapers and a wool cover at home and a all in one diaper for when we go out. The wool covers are so wonderful, they keep her warm and dry. I used plastic with my oldest two and it was awful, the covers were hot and made a yucky plastic noise when they moved. They were not snugglie at all. I have used a wool soaker that looks kinda like the pull on plastic pants but with the cooler weather I wanted something that would keep her legs warm. I ordered these longies and they are lovely. They are made from soft merino wool and hand dyed. I am so pleased with how they fit and feel. I think we will be using more wool as the weather gets colder.
