Cloth Diapers and Mr. Climber

Well, we are back from holidays and back into cloth diapers. We only use them during the day so he actually only goes through about 3 or 4 a day at this point. I have to say that it is very easy to use cloth diapers when they are on solids...a little Flushie insert and all the `dirty stuff' is flushed down the drain. We throw our diapers into a pail in the basement and just wash them every other day. We'll see how long we stick with it:)

I have given away all of the newborn cloth diapers but will keep my all in ones and one size fits all ones as I could see myself using them again if we have another child. I'd say that the biggest drawback of cloth diapers are the large, large bums. I don't want to stretch out all his 12 month pants so he is pretty much going without pants or shorts while wearing them. Good thing it's summer! I've been LOVING this cooler weather and was more than happy to put on jeans today.

In about 2 minutes, he went from the middle of the carpet to standing holding onto the wagon. I even saw him reach down with one hand and pick up a toy while standing up. He can even do it with socks on the slippery laminate floor. Craziness! He has a random rash that looks like eczema on his face, I think it must be due to the dry weather up in Osoyoos. I hope that's it. There are 3 dry patches which you can see on the left side of his face. Anybody know if that's what it probably is?

We have a busy couple weeks. I know I've blogged a lot but I think the blogging will slow down as we have 4 shoots in one week and then Kai's bday party. So, if you don't hear from me, that's why. Be sure to check out our GC Photography blog though as there will be lots of new pictures in the upcoming weeks!

I can't believe I haven't done Koen's 7 months old post...I'm never behind on those. I will do it, um, soon.
