And to give credit where credit is due: The newborn picture was taken by Roxie Howard Photography out of Parsons, KS. Same with the 3 month picture. The picture of Dutch was taken by Jill Hafner out of Frontenac and the 6 month picture was taken and framed by Lasha McPherson.
Before I had Tylee, I was pretty sure that I wasn't going to nurse. I told people I was going to but really hoped that it wouldn't all work out. After I had her, the thought never even crossed my mind to stop. I mean, really. It was honestly just as routine as taking a shower or eating breakfast. Of course, other than the grueling, dreadful, unfathomable PAIN. Nursing has become the single most important thing that I have done in my entire life. The next president? Either/Or. Public School/Homeschool? To each their own. Abortion? Situational. I have just never really cared or judged anyone or anything in my life. Part of me feels like that makes me easy-going. The other part makes me feel like I'm shallow and uneducated. But when it came down to me nursing Tylee, I am more passionate, had more determination and will than I've ever had about anything. Even graduating college! The bond is unexplainable. Sure, it was better for Tylee and we were saving tons of $$ but it is the bond that has kept me going. I keep typing and deleting because words just can't explain the feeling.

Notice I didn't say which contest. :-) I'll post it if we win. I'll give ya one guess...it has to do with green diapers. And yes, I am obsessed with these things. Don't worry, the new will wear off soon. My checkbook sure hopes so anyways.
I am not typing this during Super Bowl and scheduling it to post tomorrow. I am way cooler than that. I am definitely watching the Super Bowl at some awesome party and not sitting at home by myself wishing it was bedtime already. Tylee has not been a grump all day and I am not ready to go back to work.
I did not take pictures of Tylee in all 3 cloth diapers that I put on her yesterday. I also didn't change her shirt when I put the purple diaper on because the pink shirt didn't match. I am not trying to figure out how I can maneuver my money to buy 3 more diapers because The GoodMama just stocked some new prints. I am not addicted to these diapers already.

- "Tj needs to work a little bit more if you can't afford diapers."
- "I'd work all day Saturday and Sunday to buy diapers before I would wash them."
- "Whenever Tylee is at my house, she is going to wear the regular diapers."
- "Oh, Chelse. You don't know what you are getting into. You don't want to do this."
- "Is Tj's Mom really going to want to mess with these?
(I'm wondering if we have an ear infection...)
