Have I ever mentioned that we are using cloth diapers?? Well, surprise! We are! I am always nervous about talking about it because I don't want people who are using disposable to think I am judging...because I AM NOT. So there is my disclaimer, I have no ill will towards friends using disposables, especially since that would be like 99.9 % of everyone on Earth. :) Our decision to use cloth was almost a conviction rather than a decision- once I found out that it takes over 500 years for one diaper to begin decomposing and that Americans alone use 50 million diapers a day...my mind was made up. I realize that I am the minority, but I am just excited to do something good for the Earth and for Malak to have a wonderfully healthy butt.
So, I am using these glorious diapers called G Diapers. There are ridiculously cute, but more than that they are a snug fitting little diaper that holds it aaaall in. You should go to their website, it has tons of great info and even a few little quick videos that are really good. Julia Roberts uses my diapers so...I think that pretty much makes me cool. Me and Jules, we're tight. Anyhoo, I just got them in the mail yesterday and I have nothing to blog about. Yes, we are still waiting on a freakin court date- almost 5 weeks now. And from what I hear it could still be a week or 2 away. It is killing me that with each additional week that goes by that is another week that goes by that we don't have him with us...we were hoping to be with him sometime in March but obviously that aint happening and now we are just hoping to get there in April...we will see about that. We have been receiving lots of pictures of Malak from friends who are loving on him for us and that has been the one thing that makes the whole wait worth it...but I'm not going to lie, it makes me sad that he is growing without us! He was so tiny in his referral pics and now he a chub! Well, if 12 lbs is chubby. Heehee. But his face is much rounder and squishier and I do love it.
