Another month of cloth diapering 3 little ones

As you can see it takes a lot of diapers to cover all these baby buns. I think there were around 48 diapers on the line in this picture. That is two days worth for Miss Ruthie, Baby D and Baby E. I am enjoying having the summer sunshine so I can dry the diapers on the line.

I did an update last month and shared which diapers I was using. Then I got fed up with some of them and switched to others. I feel like when I am cloth diapering there is a lot of trial and error. What works for one child does not work for another. Their body types determine how good the diaper style fits.  

We are cloth diapering day and night for all of them now. I do use disposables from time to time if we are out and about. If we get out of routine and use disposables for a few days over the weekend I am amazed at how many packages of diapers we fly through.

The biggest bro

It is a lot of responsibility to be looked up to by 5 younger siblings.  

Our B man does it with ease.

We are so thankful for him.

Each milestone is a reason to celebrate...

Baby E loves to look at his toys and even grabs them to play!

Baby D is so happy to be eating food with the family!

Baby E meets Great Papa and Nana

The whole family headed to Papa and Nana's house for the weekend.

It was time for baby E to meet his great grandparents.

It is amazing to watch my grandparents love on my babies.

I have so many precious memories of time with them when I was a child.

I adore watching my children make memories of their own.

3 months & 8 months

Baby E is 3 months and baby D is 8 months.

These delicious little baby feet get lots of kisses!

Baby E is 3 months old!

Oh my goodness.

This is some serious baby cuteness.

For the love of Pete.

He is already tucked into bed and I want to go kiss those little cheeks after looking at these pictures.

Baby E is our 6th baby blessing and I can guarantee you it does not get old.

His sweet smile just lights up the room.

He is a happy and content little man.

He hardly ever cries.  He might fuss here and there but if he is crying something is wrong and this Momma comes running!

He tucks into bed at night around 8:30 to 9:30 or so.

He wakes up around 6:45 to 7ish with a grumpy little coo ready to get out of his swaddle.

What an incredible baby!

His eyes are captivating.  You want to just sit and talk to him when those eyes are open.

We are all so in love.

Be still my heart

What is a Momma to say about these two?  

They are such a special gift to their Daddy and me.  

After Q was born, we wanted to adopt again right away.

We knew we were meant to be adoptive parents.

We knew we were meant to love their birth families.

We knew we were meant to raise these precious boys.

There is no question.

I love seeing them together.

I am so grateful that they have each other.

Thank you God for blessing us with them and for blessing them with each other.
