Diaper Dilemma....

What kind of diaper do you use??


Fortunately, because of my {4} baby showers I am just starting to buy diapers..
BUT, every time I go I get confused and bring something esle home!
I think???
Or do diaper company change the characters on the diaper?
is that so you can tell what season they are from..
you know, Big Bird and Bert are on the Fall ones and Cookie monster and Erny are on Winter..lol
I have really only tried Pampers and Huggies
I'm not too sure about Huggies because they seem to leave these little ball things on Kallens stomach...
ANY SUGGESTIONS?
WHAT DO YOU USE?

Funny photo & Food!

Oh, the things my husband does to our child!
This photo just cracks me up :)

This weekend we tried food!!
well, very watered down rice cereal...
I don't know what I was expecting...
We talked to our pediatrician about food
and she gave us the green light
because our families have no know food allergies

Kallen seems interested in what were eating
and really likes things in his mouth..
but the swallowing part needs to be worked on.
It goes in...
and then comes back out..lol

Maybe we will retry in a week or so...
