Life with four

My new baby is four months old now and I am slowly getting used to having four kids. The little baby stage is always hard, but I defiantly am feeling the pull for my attention. I am very grateful that my kids have come one at a time so I have older kids to be my helpers. My two oldest are getting pretty good and clearing and wiping down the table after dinner, then sweeping the kitchen and dining area, they are also getting better at loading and unloading the dishwasher and taking out the garbage. My two year old is getting better about clearing his plate after a meal and attempting to clean up whatever mess he made, plus he is getting better at putting his toys and shoes away. All of the older kids love to play with their new baby brother so sometimes that's their assignment, play with baby while mom finishes dinner, or changes a toddler diaper, or cleans up vomit or whatever!

I have two in diapers and they're in cloth pretty much all the time. The little baby wears disposables at night. I have found that I still really like the best bottom diapers, but I'm really not a fan of the bumgenius pocket diapers. They leak easily and don't hold much. I have also found that I really like the econobum brand, even though it's made by the same people who make bumgenius. It's very affordable and easy. I think I will get a few more to make sure I'm not constantly running out. Plus, I cut ups receiving blanket and sewed the edges so it doesn't come undone

Overall I feel so luckily to have the baby home and I'm getting into the swing of things!
