don't usually do this...

share scrapbooking kind of stuff, that is. But I had to make an exception for this...

This is Jake, in all his diapered glory. This is Jake EVERYDAY. The kid lives in his diaper. Perhaps you've noticed that this is his outfit of choice in most every picture I have posted on my blog (and, come to think of it, I sure do take a lot of pictures of my couch :p) We don't have any problems getting him dressed to leave the house but once we're home, he wants his shirt OFF, his pants OFF, his socks OFF...well, you get the idea.

Just wanted to make it clear that it's not that I don't dress the boy; this is his choice, this is his preference, this is his perogative, and HOPEFULLY, this is a phase (especially as the DAMN cold Michigan winter is sneaking up on us!)

    Well, if I looked that cute in a diaper, maybe I would do that too. :) You also pointed out the importance of a good, neutral couch. I need to go couch shopping.

  2. I'm lovin' the fat folds above the diaper, although, they look more like skin folds than fat folds. But, that could just be me. :)
    btw, love the page, wanna be you.

    Once again, you make me know I'm not alone. I have more pics of my kids in their diapers than I'd want to admit. Children just love to be nekked! And good for them, man. Let them be comfortable in their skin. They'll develop insecurities soon enough (if they're anything like their mom...ha!).

    And your layout is classically, fabulously Erica. Damn, girl. Could you for once do a bad one so that I don't feel alone in that arena? ;)

    I am SO picturing Jake 15 years from now... new college student, hangin on the couch (same one, slightly more beat up and "aged") in the dorm room, snarfing down cold pizza in one hand, phone in the other hand calling mom and asking for money, and of course...wearing only his briefs.

  12. LOL, Erica!! It makes for great pics of him, that's for sure! :)
