Super Mommy!

Haha, not really, but I got a shower this morning, so it makes me feel that way. Eric took the day off again, and we started getting ready at 8 am for our pictures scheduled at JC Penney for 10:30! :) He shaved/cut hair/showered while I fed the kids breakfast, then he watched Cara (funny how that works out....Micah went down for his morning nap) while I showered. I had already picked out our blues/browns outfits the other day. I got to blow dry my hair, put makeup on, and have my kids and hubby look SO cute! Did I mention (with the thanks to key undergarments) I was in pre-pregnancy clothes!! Woo HOO!!! I can't wait for the Smiles by Wire to come out so I can post the pictures online, they turned out SO well. Well, all the ones of Micah. Cara of course didn't want to participate or even sit still, so the two we got of the 4 of us, 1 she isn't smiling. The other, it's an overhead shot and we're all looking at the baby, and Cara is holding her baby, her paci and a sucker! :) haha. My friend Jenny gave me this really cute blue camo cloth diaper, so that is what he wore for most of his alone newborn shots. We did happen to get a really cute one of Cara kissing his head too.

In other news, I've become re-obsessed with looking at, shopping for, and reading about cloth diapers online. I have PLENTY, so I don't need to shop, especially for like the next 6 months, but it's so hard not to. My friend is letting me borrow all her newborn sized fitteds that her 3 month old has grown out of. I have 4 covers for them, plus 24 prefolds I had already purchased, so we have enough. Did I mention the awesome friends and family I have that have added 9 bum geniuses to my 2 I had already purchased! Plus, for the next size up (small), I have 13 fuzzibunz/swaddlebees that a SWEET lady from church gave me (that my friend is currently borrowing). I have 3 really cute covers, plus the prefolds will work for awhile I'm sure. I guess when I type it all out, I have room to order some smalls ;). I just have to keep the bum geniuses in my head that they work for all sizes :). I have found a cloth diaper board I like to read, and then has like 200+ stores I can just browse forever and ever. Plus, I have recently converted 2 friends to cloth diapering, so it's fun to not be the only 'crazy' here ;).

In other news, Micah is THE BEST BABY! He's on a good eat/awake/asleep schedule during the day, usually taking 3-4 naps. He eats every 3-3.5 hours. Although at night, he's usually giving me one stint of 5 hours. The past 2 nights he's slept from about 11-3:45/4 or so. It's been awesome. He's awake right now looking at me with those big blue eyes. I really need to sync up his and Cara's schedules, but it's awesome nice to have them alone a little while. Eric is staying home tomorrow again, and then my mom is coming up to help with Friday and Saturday (eric has to judge region band all day).

Please pray for Micah on Monday. After lots of contemplation and prayer, Eric and I have decided to get Micah circumcised (although man, it's been an ordeal with insurance, etc). Because no one was available to do it when we were discharged from the hospital, we had to wait and schedule it outpatient at the hospital. Monday the 10th around 7 am, he will be having it done, so please say a little prayer for us all that morning.

Congrats on the pre-pregnancy clothes! You really worked hard to keep that weight down during pregnancy and the hard work is certainly paying off!!! Way to go!
