Organic baby clothes refer to the kinds of vestments that are mainly worn by babies. These garments are biodegradable and are very much friendly to the environment. Parents more often than never like purchasing these attires for their babies or infants because they cost less expensively, hence affordable.
There are several types of attires for babies. They range from the top to the bottom. This means that there are those which are worn on the head and include caps. Others are worn on the other body parts and include tops, vests, pairs of trousers, pants and nappies, pairs of shorts and also socks. There are also some additional accessories.
The sizes of the attires range from small up to big. This often depends on size of the baby. The small ones are usually more suitable for the small infants while the larger ones for the big babies. Besides, there are also some that are oversize. These are mainly used by the obese babies.

Music Review Monday – David J. Roch Music Review Monday – David J. Roch
You may have seen one of David J. Roch’s songs featured on So You Think You Can Dance last season, and thought “Hm, this is a pretty good song.” Turns out, Roch is a seriously talented artist with what is sure to be an amazing career ahead of him – and I hope that others watching the show were able to recognize his talent and find out more about him. His voice is vaguely reminiscent of a cross between Damien Rice and Rufus Wainwright (although with the addition of a wonderfully lovely falsetto). I could completely lose myself in his album “Skin and Bones.” (and have on several occasions) Roch’s music is haunting, triumphant, vulnerable, intense, exuberant, devastating, experimental, and absolutely incredible. If you listen to his music, you’ll understand that I do – in fact – need that many adjectives.
I love how Roch’s use of instrumentation builds in this track. With his voice alone, Roch is able to sound vulnerable, yet clear. Throughout the album, he also cleverly uses strings, brass,organ and even complete silence to add intense emotional qualities you rarely hear in mainstream music these days. (Seriously, who have you heard using an organ in the last century or two?) His lyrics are raw and heartfelt, painting a story characterized by the crossroads he has faced in his life (the kind we all must face). Dealing with subjects of joy and grief, love and loss – his music may sound melancholy at first, but gradually reveals itself to be much more deliciously complex than it appears.
Here’s a video of Roch’s song ”The Lost Child.” His voice literally gives me chills every time I hear this song (it’s a personal favorite of mine, but a great falsetto will always win with me).
His voice is something that any soprano could appreciate and even envy – and that’s saying something.
You have to check out this album. It pushes a lot of musical boundaries and has a lot of qualities that only music geeks will be able to notice and appreciate. Even to the untrained ear, this intricate and emotional album just sounds different – and I mean that in the best way possible. Every track on this album is fantastic and essential to a bigger story that I’m so thankful David J. Roch has chosen to share.
Buy the album and learn more about David J. Roch on his facebook or listen to his work on soundcloud.
We hope that you’ll do your part to encourage the musicians who are doing something different. Tell us what you think of his music in the comments below and let us know of musicians that you think should be recognized for the amazing things they do!
WHACK THOSE WEEDS!
Life may get going so well for us that we have to create some chaos to disrupt the beautiful flow that’s bubbling up.
And we have such a marvelous variety of options from which to choose! Partying to excess and getting sick is popular with the younger set. One friend fell into bed with someone who not only didn’t respect her in the morning, he stole her favorite coffee mug on the way out.
Many choose to create some kind of financial shipwreck by spending way beyond their means. Some martyrs may send themselves into a state of overwhelm and snippiness by taking on too many activities or charitable ventures, becoming a “human doing” instead of a “human being.” Insanity then springs from being out of balance.
Pick a fight with a close friend or spouse. Get distracted (i.e. “go unconscious” with your texting or dumbphone) and have a fender bender. Fall off a ladder and get injured. Overdo in any number of ways.
Do what we know we shouldn’t simply because, even though we have hoped for the best, dreamed of the best and maybe even prayed for the best, when The Best comes we don’t know if we’re good enough for it. We simply haven’t learned to expect the best and then (the most important step) accept the bounty.
Expect it, then accept it. Simple, but not always easy.
Acceptance: Why is that simple concept so difficult for people to enjoy and experience? It really hearkens back to the “not good enough” feelings, the impostor syndrome–not feeling as though we’ve earned the right to accept the good that is pouring down all around us.
And why not? Those negative voices and the negative self-talk. Whose voice does it sound like? Your mother’s or father’s? A sibling’s? A teacher’s? Your parole officer’s? Your own?
