So, I have heard from a couple of people that they are having trouble commenting on my blog. I am working on solving this problem. Right now I think there shouldn't be any problems with commenting by people that are Blogger authors. If you try to leave an anonymous comment it won't let you, however. Hopefully I will figure this out soon. A certain 5 1/2 month old I know doesn't allow me much time on the computer though. :)

I just have to say Erin Cornell is the garage sale Queen in my book. She organizes a mean sale and I enjoy participating (particularly because all I have to do is show up with my priced stuff). She sure makes it easy and fun. We had our annual garage sale on Saturday. I say it was in honor of Earth Day. We were recycling our stuff instead of tossing it into a landfill and making some money to boot. We made a decent amount of cash but the most important thing is that we got rid of the stuff that we didn't need anymore. I was more for getting rid of the stuff than making lots of moolah. After the sale it was off to Goodwill because everything that I removed from my home was certainly not coming back in. I did come home with a couple of things that I didn't have before (like an awesome globe). Garage sale- Goodbye until next year. I am sure we will have some more stuff to sell then.

We have officially been cloth diapering Liesel for 2 weeks. This is something I fully intended on doing but did not start until she was 5 months old. I know...crazy Erin. After some trial and error it is pretty easy to do. I actually like it. I know we will still use the occasional disposable though for the uncomfortable grandparents and babysitters. I am mostly doing this to save money. It is an initial investment but will pay off in the long run. I also wanted to diaper Liesel in the most healthy way possible and I think this is it. Here she is in her cloth diaper modeling debut. She is the cutest model I know!

So, last Friday I noticed that Liesel is getting her first tooth! She has had some tough nights but for the most part (thanks to teething tablets) she is handling it pretty well. I am sad that my baby girl won't have that cute toothless grin anymore. She is growing up too fast. :(

Okay so I am always behind on these. Liesel was 5 months old last Monday. I know none of these are unique to Liesel as a baby but they are to our family.
-She is pushing up on her hands and feet into a full push-up with her bottom in the air. It is pretty funny except when she pushes over forward, her arms collapse and she face plants. It only takes a couple of these to make her cry. :(
-She loves it when we make kissy noises at her. It always makes her smile except when she is really, really tired.
-She likes to practice sitting up but always falls to one side or leans over forward to get her feet.
-She still likes to suck her toes in the bathtub. I think she really likes that she can suck the water off of them in there.
-She makes new noises on an almost daily basis; discovering what her little mouth can do.
-She has started to lunge and reach for just about anything we are holding; especially cups, food and the TV remote.
-You can't keep socks or shoes on her anymore. Good thing it is warm weather time.
-She is sleeping lots better at night with maybe only one wake-up. Naps are also improving.
-Her reflux is still a little bit of a problem but definitely getting better. She is still taking medicine for it.
-"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is her favorite song and it almost always calms her down when she is sleepy cranky.
What an adventure!
