#microblogMonday: A Day Late, Arr!

We celebrated Talk Like a Pirate Day on Friday with a trip to Krispy Kreme. Talk like a pirate: 1 free glazed. Dress like a pirate? DOZEN free glazed. Which family left with three dozen free donuts?

It be we!

#microblogMonday: Fat

We just got back from Little Buddy's six month appointment. His length is consistent in the 96th percentile but his weight has dropped to the 36th percentile. Our pediatrician didn't suggest weaning but told us it's time to up his fat and protein intake somehow. Hello, solids!

A New Diaper

I am working on getting up a new and improved cloth diaper post. Here's a little something for the wait!

Five Months: A quick and dirty update

Little Buddy is doing great. At his four month appointment, he was in the 97th percentile for length. WOW! My tall boy! He is in the 54th percentile for weight. He got some shots but got over it pretty quickly.

We had our first sick baby visit last month. Boo! But some prescription cream took care of the issue pretty quickly.

I think Little Buddy is teething. He is chewing up a storm and drools through at least two outfits per day. Ick!

We've finally made the turn and started cloth diapering at night. Eek! Sometimes we wake up with a wet spot on the sheets but most nights are dry. Like everything else, it is a work in progress.

Our 15 year old washing machine died last weekend so, instead of getting new fancy cookware like we planned, we got a new washer. It isn't a front loader but it is PERFECT for our cloth diapering routine. And we got a good deal on it. Yay!

Little Buddy and I got back this morning from a week long trip to the mountains near Asheville with my BFF. We had an amazing time and even saw a momma bear with her cubs climbing trees!

Sleep training is touch and go at the moment. I still put him down in the pack n' play at bedtime but he is consistently in our bed by midnight. Not quite sure what to do about that.

Little Buddy learned how to roll over! He currently only goes tummy to back but I'm sure we will see back to tummy soon.

SSA is staying with us and will be heading home on August 17th. Little K is getting home from Florida on the 18th. I can't wait to have life back to normal around here.

I know that's all pretty boring but there you have it! Life is wonderfully, perfectly normal. Awesome.

Mountain Baby!
