12 weeks 1 day

Well, it has been 12 weeks and 1 day since Magdalena Eusevia was born. Wow, time flies and what a journey it's been. This little girl is still wearing 0-3 month clothing. And she still has a bit of room! I have put 1 or 2 3-6 month outfits on her and they are still super big. Oh well. Just today she learned to roll from her stomach to her back. Yeehaw, that made me happy. She is successfully finding her fingers to suck on and can successfully latch herself on to the breast with minimal help. She has been holding her head up with more and more ease and now tries to actually sit up. This girl wants to move! She talks to us now for what seems like hours. She coos and gurgles and always wakes up with a smile. She naps like a champ which Mommy loves. She recognizes both Mommy and Daddy and doesn't tolerate other people that long. When putting pressure on her feet, she'll hold her entire body up with just our hands to keep her from falling over. She is 100% breastfed and cloth diapered. And she is simply amazing.

If The Shoe Fits

I just took a really cool picture. See it here.

Baby On the Go

Magdalena just rolled from her stomach to her back! Yay!

Like Jennifer, I have a case of the blahs. It was a very long weekend. Erichs friend accidentally cut off two of his fingers. Not his whole finger mind you, to the first joint on the two middle fingers of his left hand (also his non-dominant hand.) So that in itself made the weekend emotionally draining. I, having seen worse, was trying to make the situation brighter than how his friends viewed it. They all said, oh no he'll never play a guitar. And I said, hooray it wasn't his entire hand, or a whole finger. And thank Goodness he wasn't degloved or... the list goes on and on. Oh, this unfortunate accident happened while mowing and using a tiller. So you are now warned.

Miss Diva is laying on the floor making cooing and cackles that have turned into the "I'm not happy cackle and I'm giving these as a warning to you before I bring out the full wail. Are you listening to me?" So I must go.

I will ask this question I've been wondering about though.

Are you using disposable diapers or cloth? (Or what do you think you would use?) Why or why not?

We use cloth. The main reason is because we are really stinking poor. And we want to save the planet!

Okay she's royally ticked off now. Must go.
