    1. I Like 607 too! I just purchased another thirsties but I want a blueberry so bad! I just can’t justify it right now. Maybe next little:)

    2. A couple of the Size Two Duos started leaking a lot and since I needed the Coveralls fast, I just ordered a chocolate and a red off of Amazon. They came on Wednesday and I LOVE them! Definitely seem to be a lot better quality than the Duos, but we’ll see how they hold up in the long run. Another two of the Duos will probably bite the dust soon so then I want to get some prints (which Nicki’s Diapers has now)…but I just can’t decide which ones because they need to be pretty gender neutral. Do the giraffes and owls seem masculine to you? πŸ˜›

  1. Beautiful list of wonderful things to be thankful for. I had to laugh over #606
    That must have been scary- # 609!
    Our lilies of the valley will soon be blooming; I am very excited about that.
