we have a winner!!

Ladies and Gentlemen.... I have a very big announcement (well, kinda big - or maybe in the grand scheme of things, it's a relatively small announcement, but in my day to day world right now, it ranks up there with the likes of Kohl's having a 50% off sale on shoes!).... drum roll please.

I woke up this morning to a dry baby, a dry bed, and an extremely full diaper that did not leak! EUREKA!! My husband even got excited about this one! With all the commotion around Ethan's crib this morning, he probably thought it was Christmas morning all over again. Anyway, I'd like to once again thank you all for your insights and advice. For now, the Huggies Overnight diapers are doing the trick. However, I want you all to know that I am keeping each of the other ideas in my hip pocket should I need them down the road. AND... to add frosting to the cupcake, when my hubby did his routine coupon clipping from the Sunday paper, we found a delightful Huggies Overnight coupon. It's a sign. A beautiful, beautiful sign.

You should see the good mood I'm in this morning. And I haven't even had a diet dr. pepper yet. Wow. It's amazing what a dry crib and child will do for ya!

Before I go, though, to get ready for church... and on a much more serious note. Please join me in prayer for my sister's friend Lisa. Her 2 year old son Samuel was in the hospital this past week undergoing quite a few tests which eventually determined he has a diagnosis of osteomyelitis. It is a severe bone infection. He will be on antibiotics for the next several months, and is expected to make a full recovery, however, it's a situation in which I know she'd appreciate your prayers. Pray also that her son will take the medication. She mentioned that it's quite a struggle right now.

Bad things or sad things happening to children is so heartbreaking. I cringe at the thought of a child having to suffer emotionally or physically. But in a sea of questions, we know this answer...

"Jesus Loves the Little Children
All the Children of the World
Red and Yellow, Black and White
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus Loves the Little Children of the World".
Much love to you all!

That's great, Kasey!! I was wondering the last couple of days if you found a solution that worked. Thanks for sharing a great *dry* day!! :) I think we are going to move Caleb up to size 4 at night now. He's been wet 3 times in the last two weeks and I have started changing him in the night to try to avoid that. They grow so fast....
