What's in the diaper bag!?

Surely I'm not the only one guilty of watching diaper bag or purse videos online, right?  .... crickets....  HAHA!  I mean, surely!  The reality is that especially if I'm buying online, I need to see what the interior looks like and see what a bag is capable of holding before I buy it.  Plus we already know that I'm a bit of a nerd and I'm also super cheap so purchases are planned.  Anyway, since I don't think I'm the only one that enjoys or appreciates a good recommendation once in a while, here I am with one.  The Skip Hop Versa diaper bag.  I'm kind of in love with it!

I had a Skip Hop Studio diaper bag back in the day when we had only two tiny kids in cloth diapers.  The Versa is very much comparable to the Studio, but it's a tiny bit smaller, and works a lot better for our current situation.  We gave up the cloth diapers with the birth of Evelyn.  (The previous 3 were cloth diapered basically full-time.)  And now that the two oldest carry their own things when they have something they need to take out with us, I just don't need as much room.  Did I say I'm in love with this bag though?  I did, and it's true.  I'm also still loving my zipper pouch system from my thirty-one bag post a while back.  It seems like an extra step to have things in separate bags inside of the bag, but it just works SO much better.

So here goes nothing.... :)

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Evelyn 1-2 Months

A little bit of precious to fill your Friday.  

This little lady is growing too fast to keep up and is two months old today.  At one month she was 9 pounds, 5 ounces and 21 1/2 inches in length.  Still in newborn clothes and diapers. She loves snuggles and was still in her sleepy phase.  I always feel the need to knock on wood when I say this, but our girl is pretty content.  Just your typical eat, sleep, poop schedule kind of baby.

Not so keen on photos at 1 month.  At least not photos that don't involve being held and snuggled by Mommy.

And then at 2 months our sweet girl has definitely grown.  Her next check-up isn't for a couple weeks, but according to our scale and measurements, she is 11 pounds, 2 ounces and is 23 1/4 inches long.  Wearing size 1 diapers and her 0-3 month size clothes are definitely not as baggy as they were in the beginning.  

Sweet girl is mostly smiles, though she usually doesn't dish them out for a camera.  And she LOVES to be talked to.  Like she can seriously go from crying to smiling just with someone talking to her.  Not sure if that's a girl thing, or if that's a, "hey, don't forget me the 4th child, I need attention too." kind of thing. Haha!  She loves to snuggle and has grown to enjoy having a binky which is a nice change from two of her older brothers.  

Happy two months sweet girl!
