One of my new passions!

So I've been exploring the vast new world that has been opened up to me since having a baby!  Do you want to know what it is?  It's cloth diapering!  I really enjoy it, at first I have to say I was scared, I didn't know how I would react to the poop, and the laundry, but I have to say those are now non-issues.  In fact I now look forward to diaper laundry day because I get to use this great smelling fun laundry soap called Rockin Green.  Yes poop is gross but she only poops once a day, and for the most part it just flops into the toilet so its easy, and Bobby is going to make me a diaper sprayer which is just a kitchen sink sprayer thingy hooked up to the toilet and you use it to spray the poops off the diaper into the toilet.  I also love how her little tushie looks in a cloth diaper, and they have so many styles!
These ones are the cutest ones we have!  What?  You expected rubber pants and square cotton cloths with nasty pins?  No no no, the modern world has figured out a much better way, actually several ways, I will be posting more in the future to enlighten you and expressing my opinions on what we use/what works for us.

My baby is walking

So I guess I have to call her a toddler now because she is toddling around the house, but I think I'll be calling her a baby for a little while longer. I look at her now and I see a little girl, not a baby her arms and legs have gotten so much longer (when did that happen?) her hair is thicker, she is really thinning out. I love seeing her change and grow!

What a year!

Well Rylee is almost 13 months! I can't believe it, she can do so many things, she takes steps without falling, she babbles and I know she is saying "hi", "dada", and probably many more things if I only understood gibberish! She is such a sweet baby, (do I have to call her a toddler now?) she has such a fun personality and she is very loving. She has gotten so loving towards her daddy which is so neat to see. It's been so much fun watching her this past year. I can't even describe how much I love her.
She has been sleeping through the night since she was 11 weeks old (thank you baby-wise) she is into anything and everything, she loves to eat and will try anything, she started out in the 95th percentile for height and weight but she is now she is in the 50th percentile. She has been learning sign language so far she can say "more", "eat", and "all done". She picks things up quickly sometimes she only has to see something once or twice before she mimics it, we have to be careful because she is always watching!

I find it interesting to look at pictures of Rylee right after she was born and compare them to what she look like now, such a huge difference, she looks like a different baby.

I have to say this has been the best year of my life, thank you God for making me a mamma! I love you Rylee!
