Painting the assembled item.
The finished product- oh the pride!
I thought this was too good to pass up! I just happened to be next to a Baby's R Us and thought it would be fun to browse with the kids in anticipation of our upcoming arrival and they had upfront parking just for ME! It made my day:) There is only one other place I have seen this before and I believe it was on a military base commissary. Such thoughtfulness (or is it a retail scheme?).
And here, just for documentation purposes is my prego self. Only 8 weeks left! I deserved that parking spot, eh?!

This just shows the size range of these diapers. They are patterned after a commercially produced cloth diaper (http://www.motherease.com/ for anyone interested- and no, I'm not selling these) but are a little different due to my own preferences and materials. They have multiple poly-resin snaps to adjust the size by folding and snapping. They've worked well for Cade. We still use disposables at night b/c he's a heavy wetter (though he leaks though most ANY diaper at night)...we are still working on a solution for that.

(Dad looks like he's in pain in this picture:))
This was the last day we were able to swim, though it was really too cold to swim, but the water was warm- so they survived. They enjoyed the cousin, auntie, and uncle time.
Next- this will be a classic. Shane convinced Cade that if he pushed a little dot on the handle of the ice cream scooper that it would make his car beep (Shane simultaneously pushed his remote lock button in his pocket). It was hilarious. Cade still tries, as does Brinly, to push the "button" on the scooper every time it is out and both are often severely disappointed when it doesn't work. Ha- oh, the classic humor of Shane Ford (ironically, it distinctly reminds me of my own childhood memories of my own father:))! Here is is faithfully trying to make the "button" magically make the car beep.
Lots of fun!
