Baby Bam Bam

So, we recently started to use cloth diapers. The reasoning behind this is ... still unclear. I think I wanted to do it because it was something I always said I would at least try. It sort of fits in with my general philosophy of life - it's frugal, it's better for the environment, and it's weird. I'm weird, let's face it. And James, well James is the best husband ever (no contest), and so he just goes along and supports me in my weirdness. Even when it means taking some extra steps I'm sure he would rather not take.

All that being said, I found a good deal on some cloth diapers through KSL, and went ahead and bought some just to try it out. (The trial has gone well, and I've bought more, so I guess we're sticking with this.) The funny thing is, I didn't have much choice in the design of the diapers. So, I got animal skin print. I was a little worried that Isaac would look at pictures later in life and just think I was cruel putting him in "girly" diapers. But then, once I got them on him, I realized how manly they made him look. Like a little Bam Bam, or perhaps Tarzan? Maybe Mowgli. See for yourselves:

we just ordered ours and when our baby starts having solid poop we will be getting one of these...http://www.cottonbabies.com/product_info.php?cPath=98&products_id=1228...you should get one...and this is the type of soap that I plan on using (it costs $3 to get a trial which is what I ordered)...http://www.laundrytree.com/buy-soapnuts/soapnuts/soapnuts-20g.html

Definitely feeling the Tarzan vibe. Love the new family photo!

I remember thinking I was going to try cloth diapers (espcially after Kalrissa's shower) but when they are this little they pee constantly! Maybe when he's older. Keep us updated on how it goes.

Wow. I'm impressed! By the way, I love the picture of your cute little family on your header :)

reminds me of Fred Flintstone's outfit, either way, it's rockin.

I kind of want to try cloth diapers too, except for the whole gross factor, having to wash them, as well as Morgan never sitting still for diaper changes means that there would probably be more leaks and explosions than not.

But, I applaud your decision (not that you were looking for my applause, but I applaud nonetheless) and think they're super cute!
