Entering the world of fitteds ( part one )

I have been cloth diapering for the last two years now but only now have I entered the world of fitteds. Before I was strictly a pocket or AIO gal. I just did not want to get into a diaper that was going to require a cover, my thinking was it just meant more laundry for me but after months of browsing the extra fluffy forum on diaper swappers and seeing all the adorable fleece and wool longies I decided to give it a try.

Right now in my fitted collection I have:
loveybums
ewe baby
thirties
nanas bottoms
zippidys
sugar peas

I am still looking to buy a few more fitteds. I love trying new diapers.

I won my first pair of woolies on hyena cart, from Born Again Baby $15 and I quickly fell in love.

I tested some fleece longies from littlemunchkie09 on diaperswappers, I really love these, the built in soaker is great!

I tested two fleece snapless body suit from kannondicarpo on diaper swappers, which are adorable, soft and warm.

Meatball soup

Lately I have been trying to find new things to make, which normally is not that hard but I do have a picky three year old son and a picky 26 year old husband.

Tonight's soup was a great hit.

Meatball soup:
Water
Beef base
v8 juice
italian season
garlic
salt
rotini noodles
frozen meatballs
corn
shredded italian blend cheese

Start with making your base, which is the water, beef base, v8 juice and other spices, after letting that simmer add your noodles, let those cook for about 10 minuets and then add your meatballs and corn. Cook until meatballs are fully cooked and noodles are soft, top with cheese and enjoy!

Our new carseats

Recently I posted about the great trade in event that was going on at babies r us. My husband and I took advantage of this great deal and we got Alexzander and Destiny new car seats. We ended up getting Destiny an Alpha Omega Elite and Alexzander got a nautilus.

We really love our new seats! Alexzander is loving having his own little cup holder and both the seats were easy to install.

If you are looking for new seats I recommend looking into these more.

Chilli beef and noodles

My three year old son has entered the picky stage of eating so it has been interesting to find new things that he will eat. Tonight was a success and I thought I would share with you all.

Chilli Beef and Noodles

Egg noodles
hamburger
canned chili ( with beans )
salsa
tomatoe paste

shredded cheese

Cook the noodles like you normally would. Brown your hamburger, then add the rest of the ingredients, pour over noodles and top with shredded cheese.

It tastes great and only takes about 20 mins to make!
