My now 4 year old, Evan

Evan turned 4 yesterday, Sept. 24! He is growing up so fast.   Today we are having his party at Chuck E Cheese and he's super excited. We did let him open some of our gifts & his grandpa's from NY. He got a Cars Scooter which he loved and some Imaginext dinosaur toys.

Here he is on the morning of his birthday!!

I'll post pics of his CEC party later today or tomorrow.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend =)

Keoni is now 7 Months Old ;)

Keoni turned 7 months old yesterday, Sept. 23.  
He weighs about 18lbs + change and is about 26.5 inches long. 

Keoni loves his big brothers & sister.  He lights up with huge grins when they come home from school especially Owen.  Yes, he loves his mom & dad too ;) There's something about Owen he just loves.  His favorite food is Sweet Potatoes (like daddy) and cereal.  He enjoys his Mum Mums Banana flavor too, goes through about 2 pks of 2 in one setting.  If I leave him on his play mat for minute, he is on the other side of the room instead of on the play mat.  He rolls & scoots everywhere.  Yesterday, I went in to get him from his nap and he was sitting up, big surprise for me!!   He doesn't have a favorite toy, he loves them all.  He does sleep with a blanket close to his face for comfort. 
Below is a list of things he is doing now.
  • Chewing and biting on things
  • Rolls all over the place
  • Grasps and controls small objects
  • Holds bottle
  • Grabs feet and pulls to mouth
  • Adjusts body to see an object
  • Turns head from side to side and then looks up or down
  • Loves visual stimuli
  • Says one syllable sounds like "ma", "mu", "da", and "di"
  • Recognizes us & his siblings
  • Sits without support, leans forward on both hands
  • Can sit up from laying position
  • Bears full weight on feet
  • Bounces when held in standing position and in his bouncer
  • Bears weight on one hand when lying on stomach
  • Passes objects from one hand to another
  • Bangs objects on surfaces
  • Able to fixate on small objects
  • Responds to his name
  • Has taste preferences (hates sweet peas)
  • "Talks" when others are talking
He is just growing too fast so I'm cherishing all these little baby moments as much as possible because he is our LAST baby!

One Size Diaper Project: 6 Months (24 Weeks)

Padded Tush StatsOne Size Diaper Project hosted by Padded Tush Stats.  This project will show how a one size (OS) cloth diaper fits on  your growing child.

With this project I can see how Keoni grows in them.  I'll update monthly on this project.   In the photos, I am using 6 different cloth  diapers, 4 are new.  Happy Heiny One for ALL in Snaps, and I've added some new diapers into the mix: Blueberry Basix AIO, Lovely Pocket Diaper Rave, Lovely Pocket Diaper Classic and DinkleDooz.

I've added some new diapers into the mix,  I'm sorry about being a month behind but it's been super busy here in my house.  Hoping to post 7 months project by the end of next week so I'll be up-to-date.

Keoni turned 24 weeks on Aug. 10 and 6 months on Aug 23 and these pictures were taken around those dates. He was weighing 17 lbs &  25 inches long.

***Happy Heiny OS Pocket
Happy Heinys are my all-time favorite diaper. They are super absorbent, great fit and pretty trim. These are the NEW OS which are call the ALL IN ONE. Overall, Happy Heinys get 10 stars ;)

***Blueberry Basix AIO Size Med (pocket)
Blueberry Basix is one of my newest stash member and it's side snapping. It's a sized diaper which I never thought I'd buy but hey I wanted to try it. So worth the try, love how it's a tongue style which means the soaker is sewn in and has enough to add it back in for extra absorbency and you still have a pocket if you want to add an insert for more absorbency. It's a great fit on my little guy and it's very absorbent. No complaints here. Overall, Blueberry Basix gets 5 stars

***Lovely Pocket Diaper RAVE OS Pocket (inner leg gussets)
LPD (Lovely Pocket Diapers) Rave is one of my newest diapers in my stash. I had to try it because it was only $12.50 (prints) & $12.00 (solids). The Rave has inner leg gussets which is awesome because it contains running poop & prevents leaks! Only thing the inner gussets make it harder to clean poo out.  They had great reviews so I ordered one. To my surprise, the diaper was great quality and super soft. Only downfall, it only comes w/ 1 insert. After trying it a few times, it's a super great diaper, very absorbent and Keoni stayed in it for 4 hours once (not recommended) It's a pretty trim diaper too. Overall, LPD Rave gets 5 stars.

***Lovely Pocket Diaper CLASSIC OS Pocket
LPD Classic (NO inner leg gussets) is an awesome diaper for the price ($7-Solid color & $7.50-Prints) I couldn't believe this great quality diaper was $7 and it works better then the name brands. VERY IMPRESSED with LPD Classics. Super absorbent & pretty trim too. Overall, LPD Classic gets 5 stars.

***DinkleDooz OS Pocket (I think this one is the trimmest & has the best fit)
This diaper was a FREE diapers I got from (coupon used) Very impressed with this diaper. Super absorbent and pretty darn trim if you ask me (well you can see for yourself) It has a high rise which is okay with me because Keoni can stay in it longer. My only issue is the waist snaps, there are 2 snaps right next to each other and to me is plain useless. I'd prefer they be spaced apart at least one in the middle like most diapers have. Overall, DinkleDooz gets 5 stars from me.

What diaper has the best FIT to you here?
What diaper looks the MOST TRIM?

*** 7 month project, I'll have ALL my diapers on here so you can see how other diapers look!
