More firsts...

Oh yeah, mama Al made it to the gym this morning for the first time and it felt GREAT! I know I am a nut job---not too many people count down the days when they get back to the gym!!! However, I am one of those crazies that goes crazy without a little gym time!! My peeps at the gym said, "Wow, you look a lot different than you did the last time I saw you" and "Oh my goodness, you didn't stay away long." For those of you that are worried about me, I took it VERY easy and didn't overdue it. I can't wait to get back this week!! Daddy did a good job watching little Sophia. She slept the whole time mommy was gone. Good thing b/c daddy worried about a meltdown without mommy's boob nearby!

Also, due to daddy's prompting and excitement (to see if mommy's great "idea" was going to cost us money or save us money) ... we did a trial run on the cloth diapers. As many of you may or may not know, we are going to cloth diaper Sophia. We are using up all the Pampers Swaddlers NB size that were given to us, but we are getting close to the bottom of the pile. Daddy wanted mommy to try the cloth diaper b/c he didn't think it would work as well as mommy had hoped or invisioned. He wanted to take pictures to document this monumental event... so, below you will find some pictures. If baby poop bothers you, you might skip the rest of the blog!!










Mommy putting on the cloth diaper!













I know, it looks huge... only takes up half her body!! She will grow into it!










Sweet Success through one of her blowouts!!! The cloth diaper inside the water proof wrap absorbed EVERYTHING and she didn't leak!!

Mark one up for mommy's cloth diapering success!!

More stories to come with Sophia and our adventures with cloth diapering!!

Allyson and Sophia!

Bryan was looking over my shoulder while I was reading the blog and went "Ewww!" when he saw the poop! :) Guess he's going to be surprised at how much there is when our kids come along. :)
