Happy Birthday Sunflower!

Birthday Girl

I cannot believe my baby is a year old. This past year flew by so quickly, it felt much faster than Lily's first year did.  I knew this was my last first year and how fast it goes, I tried to pay more attention and slow it down, but life just keeps speeding up.

At 1 Sunflower is still a little peanut. At just 17 pounds, 11oz she is below the 5th percentile for weight but her personality is huge. She runs the show around here with a voice that can out yell and boss around her big sister. You would never know it by her size but her appetite is bigger than most full grown men and she only likes food that is full of flavor - spicy black bean soup is a particular favorite.

She has little interest in her baby toys, she prefers to play Barbies and My Little Ponies with her sister. She took her first steps before her first birthday, but still prefers to be carried around while she points to where she wants to go.

She is a snuggler when awake and and gives the sweetest hugs. She is still shy around new people and will bury her head in my lap while sticking her bum up in the air, but once she is comfortable with you she is a little ham. She loves peek-a-boo and has an infectious laugh.

I can really eat this?

Thinking about Trying Cloth- Here is your chance!

Today is a great opportunity to pick up one of our favorite pockets for a steal. Mother Of A Sale has some slightly mis-sized Fuzzibunz Perfect Size diapers for just $9! These are marked as a large, but are actually sized between a medium and a large. Sunflower is currently 17 pounds and fits perfectly in a Medium, but was wearing it (slightly bulky) since about 14 pounds, so I'm sure this would fit great at her size.

Fuzzibunz Perfect Size pockets are a great intro diaper to try. They have a stay dry liner, snaps to keep older babies from streaking through the house diaperless, they are easy to wash and fit great. You can check out Mother of a Sale on Facebook or go right to their website to pick up your Fuzzibunz in lots of great colors!

Mother Of A Sale is a great online, deal site. Their goal is "to bring you the best brands at the lowest prices ALL THE TIME!!!! Enjoy savings of up to 80% off your favorite brands and products." My first order from them was also Fuzzibunz, they were running a great deal of 2 diapers and a gift certificate to Agoo which we used to purchase Lily's amazing rain suit. For more information about MOAS, check out their "About Us". On top of the great brands they already have, they will soon be bringing two new to North America diapers to the market. No idea what kind they are yet, but I'm looking forward to finding out!
