Cloth Diapers

Looks like I'm going to give cloth diapers a try. I talked to Nathan about us purchasing some after he gets paid. He's all for it. I'm tired of scrubbing the poo out of Grayson's clothes. He has leaks and blowouts pretty often. We have spent so much money on diapers. So why not put that money into something that can be reused?

We may start enough off with enough to get us through one day. I think I've decided on buying 6 Indian Prefolds, 2 Thirsties Diaper Covers, 2 Snappi Cloth Diaper Fasteners, and 1 bumGenius 3.0 One-Size Cloth Diaper. Hopefully that's a good number to start off with. The total will be $58.43 before s&h and tax. That's like 1 to 2 boxes of disposable diapers that you never see again (unless in a landfill).

I had to share a new milestone for Grayson. He rolled from his belly to his back!!!! Grayson was 2 1/2 months when he first rolled over.

Grayson was laying on his play gym and rocking. I left the room and came back to find him already laying on his belly. He was rocking back and forth. He kept "talking" as he wiggled. He finally moved so much he was turned side ways with his feet under the coffee table. I could tell he was about to roll over. I leaned over to get my camera to make a video and he already rolled onto his back! He looked surprised and exhausted. lol Nathan put him on his side a few times and he would roll to his belly then a minute or so later to his back. I'm still amazed.

3 Months Old

Grayson turned 3 months on February 6th. Where has the time gone?! He's growing so fast. I'm guessing he weighs around 13-14lbs now. I measured him the other day and he's around 25 inches long now.

On Tuesday I was clapping really loudly and Grayson was watching my hands so intently. Whenever I stopped clapping he put his hands together like he was going to try. It was so cute. He try's to mimic sometimes. He recently started coughing. Sometimes he will pretend he's coughing and then look at you. He loves to lay under his play gym and grab his toys hanging from it. He chews on his fingers all the time now. He always stuffs his clothes, bibs, and a few other things in his mouth to chew on. He grabs more at his toys. He also follows me. Sometimes it doesn't matter whose around he will just stare at me. :)

Here's some pictures and a video of my sweet little boy.

This is my new favorite picture of him.
