    What kind of diapers are you using?

    I was wondering how you use the stroller for a newborn who can't sit yet?
    Best wishes from Europe,

    • Reply Erin July 7, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      The back reclines, so she doesn't have to be sitting!

    Straw bag w/double leather handles. Must have! But where to purchase? Thanks! Lauren

    That's a great view of the city! And you're lucky you get to go to Connecticut for the weekend; I wish I could get out of Chicago for the weekend, especially since my neighbors started playing drinking games at 10 A.M.

    What do you mean good to know?

    • Reply Erin July 7, 2014 at 11:55 am

      Just feeling like it's good to know which companies are battling full contraceptive coverage!

    Oh prefolds. You amazing, economical and healthy option, you. Kudos to you for using them…I'm waiting for my clothies to come in as well!

      After a weekend away using disposables, we're so glad to be back in cloth! Good luck to you!

    Loved Edward St. Aubyn's latest, Lost For Words, at the top of your bag(s). Not as good as The Patrick Melrose Novels, it still was fabulous in its scorn of the Man Booker. To me, anyway.

      Glad to hear it! I've never ready anything by him before!

    Hi Erin!
    Love your hat and your dress!
    You look really great!
    Have a nice weekend!

    Love the shoes! Do you mind sharing where they're from?

    • Reply Erin July 7, 2014 at 11:46 am

      They're made by Sandgrens! I have a few pairs of them and really like them (comfy and more affordable than other similar brands).

    • Reply Second Floor Flat July 7, 2014 at 11:47 am

      Perfect, thanks for letting me know! Somehow I've totally missed this brand. Hope you had a great weekend!

  • Reply Shoko July 6, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    you look so great, erin!

    • Reply Erin July 7, 2014 at 11:46 am

      Thanks, lady!

  • Reply march hare July 6, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    That diaper looks gorgeous. Do you mind sharing where it's from? I really want to use prefolds, but my mind is getting boggled by the options (I'm expecting in October). That inei looks lovely and simple. And do you use a cover on it?


    • Reply Erin July 7, 2014 at 11:41 am

      Hi there! It's a just a regular old pre-fold! Working on a post about cloth diapering with all the details! Soon!

  • Reply Christine July 7, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    enjoy your getaway, Erin! I'm making an Artifact Uprising book to chronicle each season of our lives this year. Love the permanence of it 🙂

      Such a good idea! Would love to do the same!

    Love that romper!
    May I ask where you got the key hooks on the back of your door?

  • Reply Rob O'Neill July 11, 2014 at 6:22 am

    The bibs and the romper looks awesome as well as the diapers. Everything seems so nice. Congratulations for a job well done!
