Teddy and Diapers Post

We went through my baby keepsakes box last weekend. Fun, fun! I should actually post some then and now pictures of a couple of my favorite things, it is quite funny. Anyway, that teddy bear was my first teddy bear. I thought it would be fun to see what she thought of it (it has been washed!)
Also, we... I have been using cloth diapers for almost a month now. It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be, not bad at all. We still use disposable diapers at night, and when we're out, but at home the cloth ones are easy. Jesse still hates the idea. He usually gets to change her after he gets home from work, and I have yet to see him bring her out with a new cloth diaper on. He's going to run out of excuses though: "Oh, I didn't think you wanted her to go to bed in one (6:30 P.M.)," "Weren't you going to run to the store with her?," "I couldn't find any (huge basket full right under the changing table)," and the best one... "I thought I would give her legs a rest, you're going to make her bowlegged!" Actually I am a little worried about that last one. Do you see how far apart her legs are? That can't really happen can it?

This is a baby who just, for the first time, slept through the night... kind of. For those of you whose kids were sleeping through the night at 3 weeks this small celebration might seem a little much ( ; but I'm excited. There is this lady at church who I swear is magic. She just has a special touch. You put a crying baby in her arms and in minutes (s)he will be asleep. Anyway, yesterday at church I mentioned to her the conversation with doc. from the last blog, and that we were up to about 3 hrs. in between meals now. Yada, yada, yada... she looks at Aydin and says "you don't need to be eating that much." Like magic this is how our feeding schedule proceeded: 3.5 hrs. in between, 4.5 hrs., 3.5 hrs., and (drum roll......more drum roll.....) 6.5 hrs.!!! Unfortunately that chunk of time was from 8:30 pm to 3:00 am, so guess who was wide awake after her 3:00 am breakfast. Oh well, still excited.
