G Diapers

We love Jayne's new G Diapers! First of all, They are way cuter than regular diapers. Second, They don't get all pilled up and nasty when he plays in just them unlike regular disposables. And last bu not least, they are biodegradable unlike regular disposables which apparently take 500 years to go back into the earth. Can you imagine what 500 years worth of diapers will look like? Well I can imagine that, but I won't dare imagine the smell! We came across these diapers at the Think Green Fair. We checked out the website (gdiapers.com) and decided that we wanted to give them a try. They are a little more expensive than the Luvs that we normally get, but are compareable to the price of Pampers and Huggies. We got the starter kit at the Good Food store in Rochester and they have the refills too. They are a great alternative to disposable and much easier to clean up than cloth. Below is information from their website. We are only using them about 50% of the time now, but that is at least 50% less diapers piling up in a dump. Please pass this information on to anyone that you think might be able to use it. Jayne is currently in a Medium size, so he should be able to wear them till he pottytrains : )

The best of cloth and disposable in an earth-friendly diaper.
gDiapers consist of a washable, cotton outer “little g” pant and a plastic-free flushable diaper refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash.
Flush, compost or toss.
Can't flush? It's ok to toss our flushable diaper refills because they're plastic-free. Or garden compost the wet ones. They'll break down in 50-150 days.

A totally new way to think about diapers.
Once you get the hang of it, the whole process will seem as normal as recycling your newspaper.
In the beginning, you may have an icky encounter until you get into the groove of using gDiapers.
You can also compost the wet ones or simply toss the soiled refill. It will break down in the landfill in about 90 days vs. up to 500 years for a disposable. Ah, the beauty of plastic-free diapers.
Learn how to flush the flushable diaper refills and how to get the perfect gDiaper fit.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
