Baby Carriers- Ultimately the problem here is you have no baby to try out a carrier with. But seriously, these are the most creative baby carriers I have ever seen. BabyHawk The best part is that if you don't like the fabrics they have you can send them a fabric of your choosing.
Cloth Diapers- Not nearly as difficult to use or time consuming as I thought it would be. We use them at home, at the beach (away for a weekend) and on the go during the day. I really thought this was going to be a terrible hassle.
Anyone else care to share?
We are taking guesses for Jack's height and weight at his next appointment. Leave your guesses as comments!

Then all 7 of us went to the beach! Jack had a fantastic time. He got his feet wet, which was a little shocking - because it was so cold. But there were no tears. Just a look that said "Oh my, that's cold!!"
This photo was taken before the wipe out, and let me tell you- the water was very cold!

p.s. Baba Ghannouj is spelled 4 different ways and all 4 are accepted as correct. Like Chanukkah.

Jack is a big fan of the circle song.

I got dressed up, because Daddy says that mommies like it when their children look nice. You know me, I aim to please!

The car ride home took a long time (2+ hours) because every single road between Alexandria and Greenbelt was underconstruction. I think Mommy and Daddy were a little stressed out, but I tried to remain calm to set a good example for them.

This week we met at the Howard County Central Library, which was so fun. Jack really enjoys songs, games and stories... so it was fantastic for him. As always, we moms had a great time too.
After group Emily 1, Emily 3 and I went to Lets Dish to pick up our free meals. Lets Dish is one of those kitchens where you can take cooking classes, or go to cooking parties. For all new moms in 2008 as a Mothers Day gift they're giving away 2 small dishes per baby (yes if you had triplets you get three meals). So we got some yummy food in our freezer now that I can't wait to try!
Mothers Day is Sunday May, 11. Don't forget to do something nice for the woman who brought you into this world! :-)

On Friday we went for a walk. I wore my safari hat, and I pretended I was exploring. It was pretty hot so the walk didn't last too long.
Saturday we went to a neighbors birthday party. She turned two. It was a fantastic time!

Today at my Mom's Group I learned that photos are automatically date stamped. I knew this was possible in that photos would have the date imbedded in the image in the lower right-hand corner. But now I am wiser. Now I know that the data is saved to the file whether or not it is visable on the image.
As a demonstration of the power of Mom's Group - sometimes we moms share tips on getting the babies to bed, or how to deal with fussiness - today I learned about date-stamped digital images. Fantastic! Jack's monthly birthday pictures will now be shared without wasting paper and killing trees.
Additionally, my images (which are all saved in the Jack 0-3 file) are now in CHRONOLOGICAL order. How did people live before this technology?! Thanks Daddy! We went to take Jack's birthday photos today, and 'big sister' Monkey insisted on joining the fun!
