Its a bloggy party

Ultimate Blog Party 2009!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
{Please pretend that the cool banner is here} Thanks for the help Jen!

So it looks like I don’t know how to put the Blog party banner up.  I’m a little (a lot) embarrassed.  But here’s a link to 5 Minutes for Mom and they can tell you all about it. I have the banner up on my other blog because its a blogger blog and its very easy to add buttons and such.  I really like this wordpress blog better but I need my hubby to help me more and he’s at work so I can’t get that help right this second.  Oh well.

Anyway about this party.  Welcome to any new people who got here by way of UBP.  This is fun, I’ve never done a blog party before.

There are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

Ergo Baby Carrier
Provided by: A Giveaway Addicted Mommy
Prize Details: One winner will receive an Ergo Baby Carrier, Front Pouch & Backpack. Valued at $163

58 – Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer
Provided by: Moms Who Think
Prize details: From Amish Friendship Bread to Decadent Cheesecake and all the meals in between dessert, Moms Who Think has recipes you’ll love. We would like to donate a Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer to help make one lucky winner’s home cooking even easier. (winner’s choice of color, $349.99 retail value)

41 — Your choice of our Simply Precious Photo Tile Necklace ($110), or our key clasp style Boston Locket ($185)
Provide by: Elemental Memories

And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in order of preference):

53, 11, 75, 122, 19, 33, 21, 43, 22, 115, 26, 93, 118, 91 or anything else related to babies and young children since I have a 3 month old.

A little about myself.  I’m a new Mom and just quit my job so now I’m a SAHM, which is a lot of fun.  Lily is 12 weeks old and my entire world.  She surprised us by coming 4 weeks early and she’s still a tiny thing.  She’s still wearing her newborn sized diapers and clothes.  I have a bunch of BumGenius 3.0 cloth diapers for her but she’s just too small for them.  I think its just her shape because they claim to be good from 8 lbs to 35.  I can’t wait till she does use them.

I’m married to my best friend in the world, Waldo.  We have 3 cats and live in northwest Montana.  We are really trying to “green” up our lives. That’s about all I can think of for now.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you come back soon.

  1. Aw, you just had a baby! Congrats. I love Bum Genius, and I hope you get a chance to use them. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and enjoy the blog party! I hope you win one of your prize picks.

    • Hi Damselfly,
      Thank you and Thanks for stopping by.
      I used one last night with no leaking. I’m thrilled. I don’t think I’ll switch over completely just yet. They don’t fit snug around her leg and I think last nights success was a fluke. But I will continue to try them out.
      Hope to see you back.

    • Hi Beth.
      Thank you and nice to meet you too.

      I tried that, but I’m going to screwing around with it some more and if all else fails I’ll ask my hubby. Thanks for the suggestion though.
      Hope to see you back.

  2. Congrats for your little girl! Looks like we have some things in common–my son was born 5 weeks early and I cloth diaper! I find that he really didn’t fit the Bum Genius well until he was about 10 lbs.–I think that’s the same for all the one sizes that we had. The sized diapers fit better as a newborn, especially since our kiddos were born early.

    I’m not sure if you entered or not, but I have a giveaway going on right now for 3 Fuzzibunz diapers–you can find it here:

    Congrats again and your daughter is beautiful!

    • Hi Shari.
      Thank you. I’ll go check out your archives and see how Lily compares to Mr. Bean. I bet you will have answers to some of my questions or problems. I really appreciate the heads up about the BumGenius. I will stop worrying so much that Lily’s never going use these expensive diapers. 🙂 And I’ll head over and sign up for your giveaway. Thanks.
      Hope to see you back.

  3. Congratulations on the new baby girl! Spring is hard for my i always seem to catch a case of baby fever when I see all the cute little babies out and about. I fall in love with every newborn I see, lol.

  4. Congrats on your new addition! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I love this blog party business. Meeting great people along the way 🙂 I can’t wait to peruse your site some more and see some pictures of your wee one, I hope. I love Bumgenius, they are so easy to maintain, especially in the beginning. They sun really well, too, when they get stained. I hope she fits into them soon! If you need any help with ’em, be sure to bookmark me, I’ll help you, I was there once trying to figure it all out. Congrats on staying at home, it’ll be an adventure, that’s for sure, but one you’ll never regret.

    Happy partying! I hope to see you around again soon!

    • Thanks for stopping by Lisa.
      Thank you also for the offer of help. I’ll keep that in mind.
      Trust me there is no shortage of Lily pictures around here nor will there be in the future.

  5. Congratulations on your beautiful daughter Lily! We ourselves can’t remember being so small! This is my first UBP and I’m enjoying the various sites and thought that your daughter was SO pretty! Good luck to you!

  6. Happy Ultimate Blog Party to you and your adorable baby girl! (I agree WordPress is much better!) Re the button, you should have a Visual and HTML option for creating posts – paste the code in the HTML tab. (Heh – that’s how it works in my WordPress anyway!)

    Nice to meet you!

  7. It’s so nice to meet you! I enjoyed your earlier posts as well! Such a darling! I have a four month old (almost 5) son. They do grow fast. But I love being a SAHM!! I hope to see you over at my party! Have a great week!
