The story of our precious little girl's 17 months of life with Trisomy 18 (July 4, 2010 - December 15, 2011) and of us, re-learning to live "after Lilly."

The biggest loser? Better not be!

Weight check = 4 lbs. 15.5 oz.

I've heard there's a T.V. show called "Biggest Loser" where people compete to lose weight. (We don't watch T.V. at our house so I may have that all wrong.) I'm hoping Lilly didn't become a secret participant! She's dropped another half ounce. Feels like she'll never get back up to birth weight! (5 lbs. 4 oz.)

My cousin knows how much I like using cloth diapers for my little boy. (Who by the way is finding he loves wearing Thomas the Train underwear way more than diapers most days - yay!) So she found some preemie sized cloth diapers for Lilly to try. The "all-in-one" diapers are sooo cute! Lilly is modeling the snoopy print AIO above. The contour diapers, also modeled above, aren't as cute but are so soft and are working very nicely with a cover. Much less bulky than the AIO's.

And no - I'm not trying to save the environment. (I've had people ask that when I say we use cloth diapers.) I'm doing it to save money and it's better for babies skin. :)


  1. What are AIO's? She is a cute little model. EAT LILLY EAT!!! xxoo

  2. i agree with nikki- Eat Lilly Eat. i laughed out loud at your last sentence;)

  3. Oh, that I could give her a few of my excess pounds....Like my Grandbaby Jesse, sometimes it takes a few weeks for the eating gene to kick in. Love to you all. :)
