Baby Veggie Breakfast

I've been somewhat lazy about Apple's meals. Just standard baby food (organic) and some of whatever we're eating. I kept putting off making my own food, and finally purchased Super Baby Food. Then I left the book at my mom's. So remembering some of the author's tips, I make a completely disgusting breakfast that my baby ate.

Steamed Cauliflower (I use my rice cooker)
Add some water and cinnamon to blender and blend
Freeze in ice cube trays
One cube in oatmeal and heat in microwave (I waited 15 minutes before giving to her and even had it in the freezer, and don't forget to stir stir stir, to move around hot spots)
Feed to baby

She ate half of it fine, then each spoonful of the other half got dipped in yogurt. Voila, a serving (or 2) of vegetables

Went a little crazy last night. Bought a bunch of flannel and fleece remnants to make my own cloth diapers.
I've bought a few on Etsy and Ebay. Really disappointed with the Ebay ones. My favorite so far is from PrettyPrinted on Etsy. She makes them with side snaps and Apple can take it off like velcro. I just want to give my own a try. I will probably never make any to sell. I'm not a confidant seamstress, although I can hold my own. I won't be making dresses anytime soon though. I also don't plan on buying a snap press for the diapers. 
So I'm thinking I can do something basic for around the house wear and can be closed with a snappi. I think it's just me, but I haven't found a cover or diaper that really prevents fluid from wicking out. So, it is unfortunately disposable diapers when we are out or traveling. At home, she wears a t shirt, socks and diaper. If it's cold, leg warmers are added. We have wood laminate floors so I'm not concerned about a moist diaper.

The Morcai Battalion: The Recruit ebook download Susan Kyle

Why oh why couldn't this have been printed? My mother and I have been waiting years and she won't read an ebook!

Update: I've read all 3 in the series and highly recommend them!
