Holy crap

I’d heard of “blow outs”, situations where the diaper doesn’t fully cover what’s unleashed on it, but I hadn’t experienced it until this morning. Twice.

Turns out, 80’s newborn-size diapers aren’t quite covering her. Considering she’s grown an inch and a half, it’s not surprising.

I love how fast things are changing. So much of being her mom involved such simple, repetitive tasks, it’s refreshing to know she’s going to keep getting more awesome.

  1. Jasper once pee-ed, pooped and puked on me all in the same diaper changing session. You’re earning your parenting cred…keep up the good work! Our thoughts are with you all.

  2. Ah the blowouts. I was once sitting in the car in the parking lot of Target just having finished nursing Jasper while Trinity and my mother-in-law were inside probably buying diapers. All of the sudden a waterfall of poop started overflowing out of Jasper’s diapper onto my light khaki pants. I tried to press the diaper against his back to stop the flow to no avail and soon I was completely covered. That’s when I called Trinity’s mom and screamed into the phone incoherently that there was a poop emergency! A what? The poop is overflowing! His mom was like I have no idea what Tara just said, but she definitely needs you now!

  3. One good thing about starting solids is that the blow outs go away, but the poop smells worse.
