To G or not to G, that is the question. . .

So, I have been pondering G-Diapers. I really really miss cloth diapers, but as it is, I am hard pressed to keep up with regular laundry for all of us, let alone cloth diaper laundry. G-diapers seem to be a great in the middle solution.

I have not tried them. I had some at one point for Adeline and when she was so tiny as a baby, I got rid of them before I tried them. Also, I was loving cloth diapers then as well, so that makes a difference.

I think I will get 2 starter kits, one for each kiddo and get one extra pant for each. That way, I have a total of 3 pants/kid and hopefully that will be enough to get me into the swing of things. Some is better than none, right?

Out for the day. . .

We had a double date today! Adeline and Liam took Tyler and Leah to Trader's Point Creamery in Zionsville, IN. Adeline and Tyler loved the cows and running around after the chickens. Liam slept and Leah was fussy, but that's what you get when you take a baby to the farm! I hope to go back when they are milking, I think Adeline will LOVE it and be totally amazed. Here are a couple pics!

Took Liam to the Dr Friday

He is still not gaining weight like they would like him to.
He is 10 lbs 7 1/2 ounces.
We went to Riley for an upper GI and labs. He was such a trooper and the lab lady did a great job!
The upper GI was no big deal either, they just give him a bottle and watch him drink on xray. The hardest part was that since it was last minute, Jeremy couldn't get off work in time to be there. One of my friends from the ER came down and entertained Adeline while I went in with Liam.
I am going to eliminate all milk/dairy and we are going to get an appointment to see Peds GI and go from there.
I am sure everythign is fine, but it is SO hard not to worry given what I see every day.

So, what have we been up to?

Crazyness, that's what!
I am going to try to turn this into a photo-blog, because I can hardly keep up with anything but pictures, and Flickr makes it easy to blog pictures as I upload them.

I am trying to sew some clothes for the kids for winter. I finished Liam's first outfit last night, have one more to do, as well as a hoodie for Adeline and (hopefully) some pants for both kids.

I have also been hosting some group buys for a Yahoo group. What was I thinking, lol!

Liam is now 3 mos old and weighs over 10 lbs! Adeline still is stalled at 22 lbs, and is learning SO much every day. Right now, she loves to wash her hands and play in the water.

Liam is holding his head up great and working on gaining weight. He is also starting to coo and smile!

At the Park with the Cousins

Grandma and Grandpa took Kenzie, Liam, Adeline and Jill and Katie to the park this weekend! It was a good time.
