I knit my baby wool undies and then posted a photo of it on the internet. I'm troubled that this all makes perfect sense to me.
But apparently wool diaper covers are magical and that I can believe. Wool socks are magical. "They never smell!", my brother the snow boarder tells me of his Smartwool socks. "I know! They never smell!", I reply of my hand knit merino socks. And they really do never feel wet, even if I step on a melted ice cube in the kitchen.
I'm hoping this will be our nighttime diapering solution. The cover was a breeze to knit and is so darn cute. And, fingers crossed, the baby seems fine wearing wool. She doesn't fuss a bit about her wool cardigans. And let me tell you, she doesn't hesitate to let us know if she's the least bit uncomfortable (or bored or sad or tired or just awake).
I'm about out of time. The days are so full right now - uncomfortably full, if I can be frank. I keep wishing I could turn off all the noise and lights and all my thoughts and then it dawns on me that that state is called "sleep". Everything is fine, I just keep feeling like it's not.
On that note... everyone is awake now and my coffee cup is tragically empty. All the best, friends!
