I absolutely adore my cloth diapers...

There is a great giveaway going on at this blog... http://happeningsoftheharperhousehold.net/2011/07/bumgenius-artist-series-review-giveaway/comment-page-7/#comment-39801

This is such a cute diaper and I'd be happy to hang it up next to my other diapers. :)


He's up on his hands and knees!!

FINALLY, Lathan was able to lift his fat body up and get on his hands and knees and rock back and forth! I thought I'd never see the day! Might this mean a real crawl shall come soon? Mmmm maybe by the times he's nine months old he might actually crawl :o). I love my Mr. Fat Man!


Where did my baby go?

Kaden has his first big boy quilt! Gramma made many baby quilts but this is the sign of my baby growing up. He's learning new things daily now, and surprising Mommy and Daddy with new tricks all the time.

Where did my little baby go? Kaden is pulling up to standing and starting to cruise furniture! He's gotten really good at getting up and down (he does this ALL. DAY. LONG) and rarely bumps his head into the table anymore. Go Kaden!

He's been crawling for a month at full speed and he's doing a lot more "talking" lately as well. The most amazing thing was yesterday. He had a bunch of toys scattered all over the floor where we were playing. I said "Kaden, where is Glowie?" and he looks and looks around, turning his head and finally - he spots her! He crawls over and grabs the glow worm by the hand! It just amazed me, and made me think he probably understands a lot more than I am giving him credit for. My smart little boy is growing up fast though. He's getting big in the blink of an eye it seems.


Biting Baby

My sweet little girl bites when she isn't getting enough attention. Her favorite place to bite is the big toe. She'll be playing on the floor and make her way over to your feet. If you don't look down and acknowledge her immediately, you get a cute little mouth over your toe and then bit. She has 7 sharp little teeth too! Little booger.

Lexer crawly

She crawled on all fours today, but of course when I pulled out the camera, she wouldn't. But dang she's cute! Don't let those boy babies watch. She's half naked!


Evil Boys.

So Adam has been pulling himself to standing for almost 3 weeks now. He's been getting good at letting himself go down slow but sometimes he still throws himself backwards. Matthew has been the same old kid. Driving everyone crazy pushing brother over and all that jazz. Mad baby picture plug. XD
Hello! My name is Marcie - and my little stud muffin is Kaden. He turned 8 months old yesterday - what happened to my little newborn? He is crawling, pulling up to his feet, and trying to hard to just go go go. He is so amazing though, he really is my motivation for being a better person, living a better life, and he just brings out the best in our family as a whole. He's definitely a Mommy's boy, still nursing and loving it.

He actually just slept through the night last night, for the first time in his whole life! I could hardly believe it. I'm not so naive that I think this will be a lasting pattern but it was nice, even if for just one night! I love this little guy.


And just for cuteness.......
This is what happens when you order off a site that says: "Colors may vary"

Oh the fun!

Hi Guys!
You all know me(Sarah) and little Jerrod :) He's getting so big now! He's low crawling around the house like mad, has cut his first two teeth on the bottom, and has started saying hi, mama, dada, and OWWW. He hears Owww from me daily, and I think that's his favorite word right now!
I love finding new things to make for him, and the newest is baby legs. Check them out! They're so simple and easy to make. He's not quite crawling on his knees yet, but the rough carpet is making his little knees so raw. The ones in the pic are made out of little boys crew socks found on clearance, but I have also made ones using woman's knee socks to make them longer.
I'm waiting for the weather to be a lot nicer, it's been raining off and on constantly for the last two weeks! Little man loves it outside, and he's the happiest camper when out and about. He loves walks. I can't wait for our family trip! It's going to be so fun taking him boating, swimming and walks on the walking trails. The bonfires at the cabin will be tons of fun too. We had a bonfire at my brother's house a couple weekends ago, and he loved watching the fire, and fell asleep to it. I think it was the soundest sleep he's had in a long time! Didn't even wake up when putting him in his car seat on the way home or putting him to bed once we got home.

A big welcome to our new contributors!

I want to welcome our new contributors. Sarah, Ashley, and Marcie. Welcome ladies. :D



Lathan is finally scooting across the floor! It's still not quite an army crawl, but it IS scooting and that counts for something!! I missed his first successful scoot because I was too busy chatting away on facebook. :oS
Oh well! I'll take the scoots that I saw and count it as double!
As I type, he just scooted over to the end table and snatched the hose from his sister's nebulizer! Hooray!!! NOW PUT THAT DOWN!


Alexis has finally started to add some consonants to her babbling. I must say that because she is probably my last baby, I'm in no hurry for her to "grow up."

Her babbling is so cute though. She has a really gruff voice, and loves to growl. So it's a lot of growling with the occasional babababa dadadada in there. SO fun!

She is also getting really close to crawling for real (up on the hands and knees). She's been rolling around for months now, and has this really funny one armed army crawl. But now she is getting up on those hands and knees and rocking back and forth. She's even lunged forward a few times.

Sigh. I'm not ready. :( I will miss the baby stage.
