And we're back...

N is very happy to be with Molly again. He's changed her, fed her, and bathed her. Molly returned all this love with some spit up all over his leg. It's good to be home. Loved seeing Lisa again and introducing Molly to her Auntie, but we both could have done without the heat wave. Miss Molly was more than a little fussy for Auntie Lisa and I blame the heat. She was all smiles in the hotel room with the a/c.

Molly definitely got my fair skin and inability to deal with heat. When she didn't have a poopy diaper at all on Saturday, didn't really nap, got very little sleep the night before, and was super fussy I knew it was time to look into a hotel. She finally had a poopy diaper Sunday night after we checked in and she took her nice long two and a half hour nap. Poor little one... she more than made up for this lack of poopy diapers on Monday though. We were chillin' in the hotel room before meeting up with Auntie Lisa for dinner and she had a big load. I thought great, we got that out of the way I can now dress her in the cute top Auntie Lisa bought for her and some cargo pants. Got her in the car and 20 minutes later when I pulled her out of the car I got poop all over my arm. Two major blow outs in an hour. Fun times. I'm going to miss onesies and footie pajamas. They at least contained the mess. Need to order some online since finding them in the 18 month size in stores is proving to be very difficult.

Molly has proven time and time again that her favorite place for number two is in her car seat. I don't know what it is, but I'd have to say 90% of her blow outs are in the car. Perhaps it's the fact that her cloth diapers (that she wears at home) contain it so much better than the disposable ones (well, you sometimes have to change the cover, but the outfit is usually spared). I switched over to Huggies from Pampers thinking the stretchy part across the back might help, but it didn't do a damn thing. If she's going to have a major poopy diaper in the car nothing works. Your best bet is to pull over the minute you realize she's had a poopy diaper and immediately change her with minimal shifting around as to avoid squishing anything out the sides, but even this method doesn't always work. You know it's a problem when you use a half a dozen wipes *before* the diaper even comes off. Our only saving grace has been the Kiddopotamus piddle paddle seat protector. Haven't had to wash the car seat... yet. We also moved back to Pampers since they seem to fit her better than the Huggies. The Pampers seem to be longer and go up higher on her torso. The Huggies just seemed small... like I had the wrong size, but they covered the same weight range as the Pampers. Odd.

Hey Kim. Saw your hassle with the 18 month+ onesies. I had a quick look, and the best place seems to be eBay. There are loads there, up to 24 months. Hope that helps.

eBay is great... but dangerous... at least in the stores I can see how much stuff I'm holding and know if I'm going overboard... it's so easy to click and buy online... thanks for the help though...
