For the past few years I've been *trying* to cut down on my paper towel consumption in an effort to tread a little lighter on the planet. Overall, it's worked pretty well. I started using the thin baby wash clothes as napkins for Chloe and then when she was done eating I could wet them and wipe her down with them. Which, as you can imagine she loved. These worked well, until...I discovered the Unpaper Towels on Etsy. They're quite durable and wash/dry well. In short, they ROCK!
Over the weekend we took Chloe, the amusement park that's close to the beach house. Her older cousins were seasoned visitors, but this was Chloe's first visit. To say she enjoyed herself is an understatement. I have a feeling she'll be begging to return this weekend.
I didn't get to witness it, but according to Chloe's teacher she swam all by herself in the pool today for a bit! This is a first and I can't wait to see this with my own eyes.
