Annabelle is Growing & Cloth Diaper Update

Annabelle and I playing around the the video camera
Last week Annabelle had her 2 month check up appointment and boy is she growing.
Weight:  9lbs 5oz - 9%
Height: 20 7/8 inches - 3%
Head:  15 1/4 inches - 70%

The Dr. said she is doing great! She is still a peanut compared to most 2 month old babies but for her birth weight she is making great progress.

What's New:  She now recognizes Jerry and I and gives us big smiles.  She starts chatting up a storm telling us all kinds of dramatic stories (LOL).  She is starting to interact more with her play mat by kicking the the rattle and hitting the little birdie.  Her hair is also coming in more now on top of what she had when she was born.

Cloth Diaper Update:
Annabelle and I filmed a vlog on cloth diapers but with Jerry traveling on business I have not had a chance to sit down and edit the film.  I will say that we are enjoying using cloth diapers because we don't have dirty diapers sitting around stinking up our house, it's also nice to not have to worry about running out of diapers.  I will also say that cloth diapers holds the odder when she goes #2 in her diaper and we don't smell it until we take the diaper off, when she was wearing disposables you could smell it right away and it would stink up the room.  We always change her right away but when we are out in public it is nice not to worry about others smelling it.

For those who can I would recommend using cloth diapers it really isn't hard.  After she goes to bed each night I spray out the #2 diapers and wash all the diapers and covers and then do the final rinse in the morning.
