So we started our adventure in cloth diapers this last week and surprisingly it is going pretty well. After a leak a piece the first 2 days we have been going strong in getting a schedule down. It is much easier than I thought it was going to be and much easier to clean up than I thought. A huge plus- the cost. We have not bought a box of diapers in almost 3 weeks and still have at least half a box left in each size. And, the girls look super cute in the diapers. We took some pictures of them tonight and I will try to get them posted here in the next few days.
Yesterday was the first Saturday that Daniel had to work, which really messed up my weekly routine. I forgot it was Saturday and the girls missed their baths. Today was our Sunday and tomorrow will be our Saturday. I think it will take some getting used to for sure. We are taking the girls for their Easter pictures tomorrow. Hopefully, Avery cooperates and we get some nice pictures of the girls together.
Daniel and Savannah have a very set bedtime routine that started a little before Avery was born and has continued ever since. We anticipated me not being able to go up stairs often for several weeks and sadly, cut myself out of the bedtime routine. They read a excerpt from a book every night that we received from our pastor and his wife as a gift for Avery. She walks into her room and asks for “bird”, which is what she calls the book because there is a bird on its spine. The last few nights they have been reading about the death and resurrection of Christ. Now, when you ask Savannah what happened to Jesus she replies “boo-boo” and then she says “died” and then “alive” . It is too cute. Today they read about the ascension of Christ and she now says “Heabus” for where he went! It is such a joy to watch her read and comprehend Bible stories. She has almost finished reading through the book (Old and New Testament highlights) and we have only had it for less than 2 months. All of the Old Testament stories explained how that story was a foreshadowing to the coming of Christ.
We have been spending a lot of time outside with the nice weather. I really don’t want the cool down they are calling for later in the week. Savannah loves to swing and play outside any time she can. She spent all day yesterday with her “Onion Do-Do” (translation Aunt Jo-Jo) going to the library and visiting her Great Grannie. She had such a fun time at the library reading and playing with the hand puppets. She loved Aunt Joan’s cat Higgins, but I don’t think the feeling was mutual.
We have a busy week coming up. I am working for the first time since early January on Friday and then we are headed to Owen County on Sunday for some relaxation and FISHING!!!! So excited!
