Grown out of his diapers!

Today, Kyle is 13 weeks old. Okay, technically, he will be tonight at 11:27 pm. I can't believe how fast the time has gone! Do you know that to date, he has gone through 633 diaper changes?! And that doesn't include diapers for the first 4 days of his life! Add at least 32, I would guess for those days. Amazing, huh? Yes - we have that recorded. We are sick.

I had to officially retire the infant sized cloth diapers :(. I can't believe he is big enough for the next size. They are actually a little big - folding is tricky, but they definitely fit better than the little ones. We are attempting some fancier cloth diapers as well - Swaddlebees pockets and AIOs. They are so much trimmer fitting than the prefolds, plus, they basically go on just like the disposables only with snaps rather than velcro/tape. No folding, no snappis or pins, covers, etc. His skin also seems to stay drier, which can't be bad. You can also add inserts to increase absorbency. So far, we have done well with them overnight. I would love to have a replacement for the disposables at night! I sound like a commercial :o). We are also testing g diapers for trips, which are pseudo disposables. They have a cloth cover and a disposable insert, that is also flushable and biodegradable. I would love for these to work out for us - we shall see.

Kyle has been testing out the Exersaucer these days. He hasn't quite mastered it since it requires complete head control. But he does seem to enjoy it for short periods of time. He especially likes the snail/butterfly toy you see pictured. Another new pasttime of Kyle's is blowing bubbles and putting everything he can into his mouth! He has a stuffed toy carrot that he loves because it is the perfect size for chewing. The bubbles drives Jeff crazy because of course it turns into drool. We have to have a burp rag on hand at all times! I am trying desperately to catch him rolling over on camera. As soon as I do, I will post it here. It is hysterical to watch!
