What they said:

On going back to work: I just made a decision to make a movie next year, and I found it was almost too big of a decision because I don’t make it a lot. I’m out of the practice of making the decision. It’s a real team effort in our house. Everything that goes on has to sort of pass everybody’s approval. Danny and the kids, everybody has to want to go and be part of it or else it doesn’t work.

Ducks in a row: Twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, turning 3 next week, were born at 1:21 and 1:22. When he arrived in June, Henry was born at 1:23.

In a current interview with Vanity Fair, Julia Roberts discussed her decision to use more earth friendly diapers for Hazel, Finn and Henry,

We make a lot of garbage. How can we make less garbage? This is our plight. I use Seventh Generation (chlorine-free, non-toxic) diapers for Finn and Hazel, and then I was turned on to the (plastic-free, flushable) gDiapers" for Henry. "It is flushable, but you’ve got to stir that thing! If you don’t really break it all the way up, it doesn’t go all the way down.

Seventhgeneration Seventh Generation diapers are chlorine free and do not contribute toxic cancer-causing dioxin to the environment. They are widely available in stores like Babies R Us and online at Drugstore.com.

Gdiapers gDiapers are a unique hybrid between cloth and disposables. They a comprised of an outer cloth pant and an inner liner plus flushable insert. They are free of chlorine, plastic, inks, dyes, and guilt – when you consider how diapers fill landfills.

Wait a minute…I had heard that Julia picked the name “Hazel”..something about being asked the nicest person she had ever known and she thought of a little girl she went to school with…In fact, I’m positive I read that on this website?
