The kids!

Jed is conquering his bedwetting! We bought a bedwetting alarm on Here is a picture of it:

It is a great alarm! There is a sensor that attaches to his underware, then a wire plugs into the bottom of this alarm. When he starts to wet, the alarm lights up (red flashing light), vibrates and goes through 8 different alarm noises. We have used it for almost a month. Jed has now gone six days without wetting at all. Not even a drop!! Before we tried the alarm we tried a pill the doctor prescribed that didn't work at all for him. I am so excited for him! He is almost 8 years old. He never complains about wetting and we don't make a big deal about it. I am sure it really is a big deal to him! Elise has also gone without Goodnights this month and only wet the bed twice! Charles and I are so excited to not have to buy Goodnights on top of two different sizes of diapers!

Lauren should be ready to potty train in the next few months. We already bought princess underware for her! We got her back into cloth diapers this month. It is nice not to have to buy as many diapers. We still put her in disposable diapers at night. We haven't done the cloth thing for Ian as of yet! We use cloth diapers called fuzzi bunz and they are great! Here is a picture of them:

They come in all different colors and some patterns too. We have a lot of different colors for size 1 but Lauren only has yellow and white. We let her choose which she wants to wear!

Ian is getting so big! We took him to the doctor last week and he was 13lbs 14oz. That means he weighs half as much as Lauren! He is 4 months and Lauren is 2 1/2 years!! I believe he is going to be the biggest out of all of my children. He is now giggling a lot. It is really fun! He is trying to sit himself up when he is propped up. He is rolling from his belly to his back. I just can't believe he is so big!!
