Hi, everyone! I haven't really felt like posting lately, but I have been lurking and reading!
Just to give a bit of an update: Micah is FINALLY walking. He had initially taken some independent steps just before his birthday, but then after getting sick and loosing all that weight and muscle tone he really regressed. Then, about three weeks ago, he suddenly stood up on his own without any help (from sofa, walker, etc.). After a little coaxing he took about two steps. Then, we went to the zoo later that week and I set him on the ground in a really green area to take some pictures...and he stood up and walked away!!
: After the momentary skock that ensued, I started snapping away, so I actually got his first uninstigated steps on "film"! (They aren't on this computer, but I will try to post some tonight.) Now, he is walking about 85-90% of the time -- I was kind of surprised at how fast he transitioned.
My mom gave me a Diva for my birthday (she actually had to give it to me a couple of days early because I was on my way out the door to go buy one
) and I absolutely
it. The website said that if you have been pregnant, even if you had a caesarean, or are over 30 w/out having been pregnant, you should wear a size 2. I wish that I had gotten one of these YEARS ago. (I actually half-way look forward to
, but only half-way!)
And speaking of
, I just want to say how unfair it is that some of you (not naming names
) are just now getting
back or still don't have it at all...I bled for 9 weeks PP and then had a 6 week repreive before
deciding it was time to reappear!
And, we didn't even introduce solids until 7 months, and he didn't anything of substance until 11.5 months!!

I use FB on Micah, and absolutely
the fit on him...And, since Ion is similar in stature, I could imagine they would look cute on him, too! I don't really know about the potty learning (as we aren't anywhere near that), but as far as the diaper changing standing, I think that it is pretty easy! Once you figure out which snaps you need to fasten, as long as you get the correct ones snapped it should be on him correctly. I know that wasn't very descriptive, but it really is easy! I think that it is better than aplix, because you don't have to worry about getting it attached correctly, it is already mapped out for you!
