Gr. It seems like there's always some epic struggle for me when I want to post a video. This time, I recorded a nice, long take only to find that the camera had stopped taping halfway through. I imagine it was because my memory card became full. So, I deleted a ton of photos and started where I left off. Only to find it cut off AGAIN. Thankfully, I had finished answering nearly all the questions. I did another quick take for a closer.
I edited everything together, saved it, and tried uploading to Vimeo, but it was too large. Then I joined and tried uploading it to YouTube. Waited an hour for it to upload only to find it was one minute too long. Then I had to find a minute to cut out, save it again, and then upload it again. For another hour. Again.
Sigh. Long way of writing that videos aren't really my thing. I'd like to get better at them, though. At least the sound quality is good!
Two questions I had to edit out:
How many cloth diapers do you have? And do you feel like you have enough?
We have 24 cloth diapers. And actually, I think we have too many. When Ada was first born, we had 18. That way, I was doing laundry every other day. It worked out great. Then I thought I'd like more kinds to try (and also read that 24 is sort of the magic number for how many most people like to have). So, I bought several more. Now, if I want, I can wait three days between loads, which may sound good. However, as I had said in the video, they "steep in their own juices" too long. I recently read on Young House Love that they have and love having just 12. More power to them, but I think that would be far too few -- necessitating a load every single day. (Let's face it, babies sometimes "ruin" diapers by randomly peeing and worse during diaper change time!) In our world, that wouldn't happen. I can guarantee it.
What model BOB stroller do you have?
I started to answer that it's the BOB Revolution SE. What I went on to say is that it's a great stroller and I loved working my way up to running nearly 6 miles with it. Unfortunately, over the past month, Ada has decided that she HATES the stroller. She doesn't just find it mildly irritating, she absolutely abhors it. I'm hoping it's a phase. I know it's a phase, right? We may have discovered the reason -- she can't see outside the large canopy and when it's up, she seems to tolerate the ride much better. Obviously, with sun and wind, we can't exactly use it with the canopy us. But for now, we try to take short walks down to the park to see how far she'll let us go. I think maybe I got her to be in it for 8 minutes yesterday. Progress.
