Colin turned 1 month old yesterday!

Happy 1 month old birthday Colin! This last week we started getting more and more social smiles, I keep trying to catch them on the camera them but I haven't quite captured his full smile in focus yet, but this is at least the end of the smile. We celebrated Colin's big day by going to the beer garden with friends who are staying with us, and before you call CPS, it isn't as 'bar-ish' as it might sound. It is actually a big open area with tons of picnic tables that serves BBQ type foods and Belgian beers. We were a little nervous about being allowed to bring the baby but it turns out their were TONS of babies as well as some older tots. It is actually a great place to eat out with a baby because it is loud enough that a screaming baby doesn't turn heads. Not that Colin screamed, he was a perfect little gem!
Colin celebrated by sleeping 4.5 hours in a row overnight, followed by another 2.75! It was fantastic! That is the longest I've slept consecutively since I was about 6 months pregnant.

I was wondering if you could comment, when you have time, on how the diapers are working. I know you planned to use more of a cloth based diapers and I was wondering how easy to use they are and how absorbent they are?

he is such a cutie -- and I can't believe you're getting so many social smiles already! The kid is definitely a genius. :)
