Usually I laugh at how he takes a million diapers with us everywhere we go, especially since Ion almost never pees while we're out. Not today. Today I packed 2 diapers in a tiny bag for church. He peed once. He peed again. And then, 30 minutes later, HUGE poop. So I had to go into the nursery and steal a paper diaper
. After 10 1/2 months, he wore his first disposable! I don't actually feel bad because it's not like I could have just left him in poop and I'm glad it was there but it's funny. I didn't really know how to put it on and it felt like it was going to tear. Carrying him without the extra padding was odd. I guess I could have left him nakey though because we made it to the hardware store and back home and it was still dry.
I didn't even start CDing Micah until a couple of months ago...maybe even just one. I had started out thinking I would from the start, but couldn't decide which diaper to go with...Then, I thought I would just wait out the stash of sposies that had been given to me...And, since I did not realize the CDs would be resellable (had not yet discovered DS) I also thought it would be nice to wait until he was in the second size since they seemed to (based on the posted span of weights) last a little longer and I *thought* Micah would sail through the smalls since he was a large baby at birth -- little did I know he would *still* be in small FBs (which are my fave so far). Soooo, I definitely would not look at you differently for using a sposie. And based on our "circle", I don't think anyone else here would either.

cute pictures! he sure looks the same now as he did as a little babe! i love the squished pic.
oh vaca with the parents sounds good--you'll probably get lots of nice time with your dh.
I thought the same thing when I pulled up Desmond's first pic. Even if I hadn't known it was him I would have been able to match it up. Wouldn't that be a cool game -- to match up baby pics to the babe...(I think of silly stuff like that
Cute pics everyone!!

Happy March everyone. Spring will soon be here I hope! I am so sick of winter
:In the Big mess!
I have decided that March is a new month. What is done is done, and I am going to concentrate on this month while it is young.
And, Is that Arlo? He looks so old! --
Someone posted they thought their babe was one of the few non-walkers, and just wanted to add that we are non-walkers too
He will cruise, but as soon as he moves away from the "crutch" he plops down and crawls (which, BTW, is getting VERY fast).
Also, Micah just started saying "maaa-maaa" last week (2/23 - for my reference
), which brings his word tally up to about 3 (mama, papa, and bye bye). He has even started waving more on cue.
The same day, while I was at work, my mom was doing laundry while he was sitting on the floor playing well. She had her hands full, so she ran upstairs to hang up the clothes and hook up the sound machine before putting Micah down for a nap. Well, she put up the clothes quickly, but the cord on the SM was tangled so it delayed her a bit. Micah started fussing, and she called out to him, "It's okay nana's coming!", talking to him while she finished up in "our" (transient) bedroom. As she is heading down the hall to the stairs she gets down about two steps and hears him BEHIND her in HER bedroom -- which means he climbed 13 stairs by HISSELF!!!
: A couple of months ago I had read a thread about not using gates and teaching your child to use the stairs, and while we weren't trying to do some alterior discipline technique, we decided to try teaching him since to safely navigate the stairway since it is just not condusive to using a gate. But, he just did not seem interested in them. We TRIED to work with him and he just sat there and he never even showed interest when crawling at the base or the top -- he just crawled on by! Scared the crap out of my mom - not to mention me when I found out....I don't want to sound like a bad mommy or to make my mom sound like one, but just wanted to share that their interest could suddenly turn at any moment...
And, we have four teeth now
Sorry to be so chatty...I have decided to give into the fact that I have ppd tendancies that are exacerbated by knowing NO ONE that shares my "beliefs" and by not socializing. So, I am trying to kill two birds with one stone.
