Moving On Up

At our dr. appointment we found out Andy is now over 8 lbs. This means he can now move out of newborn diapers and into size 1, which is nice since size 1 are cheaper.
And 8 lbs. is the "magic" weight when he now fits into the cloth diapers we have for him. So we will switch over to doing cloth after we move. We wanted to do disposable diapers for a little while until we felt comfortable with the whole diaper changing thing. And it actually isn't as bad as we thought it would be. The only hard part about it has been when he has a blow out and gets his diaper and clothes all messy. And in the first week or two we were still learning when to change his diaper. There were a few times when we changed it a little too soon and either had to change his diaper again 5 minutes after the first change, or even worse was when he would be going while we were in the middle of changing him. But now we have a good handle on diaper changing and feel ready to go to cloth. The only thing holding us back is that we want to wait until we are settled into our new house. Speaking of which, we now have a moving day--it is this Friday, August 1st. We are so excited. We have been waiting to move for a little over a month. And we have been packing for many months. I can't wait to get moved in and unpacked. Then I will feel ready to switch to cloth.
