that's around 770 so far

Remember when Josh had the diaper/poker party and all the participants had to bring a pack of diapers with them? I'm very happy to say that we have yet to buy diapers because of this. Three months later. That rocks.
We finished up with the newborn size at just the right time and have gone through the last of the size ones that I wasn't crazy about (Kroger & Rite Aid). We are on the last box of Pampers 1-2 (my favorite diapers so far). It's a huge 216 pack box and a week or two ago I was thinking about how once we finished that we had 2 packs of size 2's left and then we would have to start buying our own.
I was super excited when I moved a blanket in the closet later that week and found several more packs of diapers. Josh had put them all away back in February and put all the size 2's up on a shelf. I couldn't see the other packs and had just assumed for a long time that once we used up everything that was stored on the floor we would have just those 2 packs left. Nope, we've got another 200+ diapers. That's almost another month's worth.
You're not going to put one of those on my head too, are you?

You guys are so smart! And...oh my gosh... SUCH a cute picture. Seriously. If I were you, I'd take a whole series of "things draped over Gideon's scalp" photos. I don't know why, but it would just be too adorable. (Then again, I doubt the state would let me keep any kids I gave birth to, so take my comment in what sense thou wilt.)

Cruel Shoes—I have other pictures of things on Gideon's head (a nursing pad, a coffee filter). It's just so funny to me.

Cruel Shoes said...

OK, I have to see the coffee filter photo. I'm making an official request here.

When it is fall, please put some leaves on that boy's head, too.

Once I get it off the camera I put it up here.

You should have another diaper poker party. ;) You will never have to buy diapers.
