Here come's Luke!! He is officially crawling and pushing himself up to sitting. Pretty much - he can get wherever he wants! He's so happy with himself, too. You GO big guy!! Mommy's super proud of you!

I'm writing today to tell you of my LOVE for my Bum Genius cloth diapers. Here's our love story:
No stinky trash cans - or worse - Diaper Genies! Bleh!
I know there are many more pluses, and you can find them on the Cotton Babies website: http://www.cottonbabies.com/clothdiapers.php

Today was chock-full of firsts.
- Bella's first day of Pre-K
- Laney's first day wearing big girl panties on an outing (we made it for a couple of hours!)
- Luke's first deliberate, if wet and sloppy, KISS! (Is there anything better?)
- Bella's first pop - she had a Sprite with her celebratory Happy Meal today.
- First run-away dog in our house - Her name was Shay
- Laney's first backpack
So, a while back, I mentioned something about PROMing the desk in the kitchen. The cabinet above the desk was virtually useless, except to throw the things that we didn't want the kids to reach. Meanwhile, my cookbooks were shoved in a kitchen drawer, and NEVER, I repeat, NEVER looked at, let alone USED! Such a waste! So, here's my result... it may seem a bit random to anyone else, but it's what works for our family's needs. And I'm sure it will change throughout the years as our needs change. By the way, we threw away dozens of candles we had stowed in there. We rarely light a candle, because we have little people who aren't quite old enough to know that fire is not fun.
|Before now I would never have let anyone else look in this cabinet!|
|On each door I attached a magnetic white board. On this one I have our meal plan for the week (not completed, I know - I'm far from perfect!), the Daily 7 list, and some inspiration for me. On the other side, I post random things I need - invitations, papers to send to school, etc.|
