I'll take some close-up shots of just the diaper sometime and edit them to this post. Right now it's in the wetbag soaked...but it didn't leak, woohoo!

When I first got the diapers my thoughts were CUTE!! But I also thought the materials (the PUL and fleece inner) seemed a very thin and was a little apprehensive about having spent $100 on diapers I didn't know would work. However, I LOVE these diapers!
Pros: The price!! It's so hard to find diapers of this quality for the price she advertises. I got 10 diapers for $99.95!! The PUL is very thin, I'm guessing a 1 ml thickness, and the fleece is thin, but it also doesn't pill like other diapers I tried in the past, and is still very soft. The white snaps are very durable and don't come open, and are well placed, including on the crossover tabs for more settings. The inserts that come with the diaper are trim, 3 layered microfiber, and very absorbant. I double them up for naps and triple for nighttime, but only because I am overly cautious and don't like washing bedding :) So far in my 3 months of using these diapers we have not had a leak that was the fault of the diaper. If we had leaks it was because I improperly stuffed it for a wrong amount of time, or I waited entirely too long (4 hours, I know, terrible!) before changing a diaper with one insert after my heavy wetter had had an 8oz. bottle.
Cons: Only 5 colors, I want more! I got 2 of the cow print ones but they are not completely waterproof and are now labeled as swim diapers on her websites. I also live in an area of the country that doesn't permit, except for about 2 months out of the year, line drying. Because of this I have washed and dried them each over 80 times and can definitely tell that the elastic is starting to wear out.
Overall these diapers are fabulous and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a cheap stash to start off with!
PS-If you get it at Bed Bath & Beyond like I did, make sure to find one of those 20% off coupons before you go, it totally makes it worth it to buy!

He did it! I'm not going to consider him fully nighttime trained until he's gone all night with no accidents for a couple weeks, but yay! Good job big boy! I miss my baby... :(

Jeanine: is 9.5 months old now, wow time flies! She's crawling, pulling up on furniture, has one tooth with another on the way, and is the sweetest little girl I've ever known. She waves, she claps, and she loves to tease people that maybe, just maybe, she'll let them hold her...but then she doesn't. Last week she had a 9 month checkup and weighed 19.3lbs (50th %ile), was 28.5" tall (75th %ile), and still has a cute little 20th %ile head :) We are quite fond of our precious girl! She loves her sleep (like John) and is very much a daddy's girl and will only go to him if he's anywhere in the vicinity. She's also still allergic to dairy or cow's milk protein, and we're struggling daily with finding foods for a one-toothed, sensitive tummied little porker to eat :) Jeanine has also just begun "the scrunch-face" smile and loves to scrunch up that button nose when she's laughing and smiling. It's so adorable and I hope she doesn't grow out of it any time soon! Oh yeah, the only word she'll say consistently now is Daddy. She loves to babble all day long but when Isaac is home, she just shouts out "yaddy, yaddy!"
I also came to a major milestone in my life as a mom when we left the children overnight with Isaac's mom (here at our house) and went for an awesome 2 day/1 night run up to Orcas Island! We left on Memorial Day Monday at about 9am and got to spend 2 whole days together without the kids! We came home Tuesday night late since I was really sick and so was Jeanine. I was sad at times and definitely missed them but we're all better for it and had a great time. I was able to relax and only use my brain for myself (which never happens)! I thought it might short-circuit when I got home and had to turn it back on to take care of the kids, lol! I am also so impressed with the amazing beauty of Orcas Island and the San Juans Islands. What an awesome part of the country, I recommend everyone go there at least once! I have pictures from that but they're on a disposable camera at WalMart right now, getting converted to digital. I'll post those as soon as I get them back. OK well I think that's it. We're pretty caught up now so hopefully I can get back on track and post more often, if only I'd actually take pictures throughout the week. Sometimes I go 2 weeks without taking one picture, that's so bad! Thanks for reading, don't forget to comment so we know we're not just posting for strangers to eves blog :)
