today maddie wore her first cloth diaper.  of course, she did a spectacular job of getting it dirty for mommy to clean.  but that's part of the experience, i guess.  i also put her baby einstein exer-saucer together today as another form of entertainment for her.  i sat her in it while i was attaching the toys and she was so excited to see each new toy.

in other news...i started my first vegetable garden.  this is going to be a learning process so i'm not promising anything yet.  but hopefully we'll have tomatoes, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, green beans, cucumbers, yellow squash, and zucchini soon.  of course, the weekend we planted we had high 90 degree days so i'm doing my best to keep them appropriately watered.  i welcome any tips or suggestions.  i'm also growing a little herb garden on our porch.  right now it looks like we'll have basil galore.

maddie loves to tell us stories.  some are happy and some are sad.  we've only had a few angry stories.  this is a sad one.  and then she gets scared (or is mimicking) her monkey hanging from her play mat.
she has her four month doctor appointment tomorrow.  hard to believe.  i'll post about that next week.  i'm taking bets as to what her weight and length are.  she was 17 pounds; 27 inches at three months.

ok what an awesome looking garden space. of course, because it's yours, it's completely organized. ;) unlike mine, which looks like an overgrown chia pet!

when your basil starts to grow, if you pinch out the new baby leaves that are right in the center (once it gets big enough and starts growing multiple pairs of leaves on each stem), it will bush out like crazy and you'll be eating pesto for months.

i am all set to try our first cloth diaper on rhys tomorrow. i'll have to let you know how it goes! i'm scared of #2 in there! :)
