Umbillical cord gone

Vaudville here we come

So while changing a poopy diaper.... Brock starts pee-ing... okay, I miss a little, but I was mostly ready for this to happen. I wait what you'd think would be an appropriate time for a micro-bladder, and try to resume the diaper change....

Well he was still peeing.... So he gets a little more pee on me and himself, but I quickly cover him again and wait some more...

Once again, I resume the diaper change and he is still peeing. More messy.....

This time I cover him, but kinda leave it accessible to watch.

The crazy kid somehow stopped peeing when I covered him, and only resumed when I removed the diaper. (That's crazy muscle control.... I can barely even perform a feat like that).

Anyways, now I left enough room for him to pee into the air and not make an additional mess.... but the damage was done.... pee everywhere.

It really felt like this should have been a Vaudville skit.

More projectile news

The family was over having dinner last night. The baby was fed and I was holding him - really still- while everyone finished eating. All of a sudden, out of nowhere (well, really out of Brock) this projectile of milk flew out of his mouth and hit Ron big time on the side of his sweater. I received a bit on my shirt as it passed by, but mainly it splashed on Popop. I laughed really hard. Obviously a contrast to how Quinn handled her experience. Ron laughed too. Just not as hard as I did. :-)

Throw up

Quinn was in the line of fire from one of Brock's vomits... It made her quite upset.... Brock didn't seem to mind as much

Oy my aching back

Bad things for a 36 year old back.

2+ hours sleeping in the rocking chair with Brock
Cold day, and carrying awkwardly dense car seat
2 hour nap on the floor with Quinn

And the day isn't even over yet.

Dr's office circumcision experience, 1000 x better then going to a bris.... There is a prefabricated body restraint system and anesthetics.... But the best part is that we got kicked out and waited in the waiting room during the whole thing. And he even slept through it all. Woot!

Pam says, "it is hard to remember to carry a diaper bag with me all of the time"

So the bad thing about having a 2nd child of different gender is that "she" has become a pronoun that refers to the small person that needs something.... that is going to be hard habit to break with him.

Ode to the baby bucket

A quiet breakfast where no one ate the jelly with their fingers. One week old and already been to NY hot bagels. We really like this phase.

Side Effect for a winter baby

So having a baby in winter has an interesting side effect. See with a newborn, you end up washing your hands about twice an hour at least. Sometimes with soap, sometimes with sanitizer.... take that with some dry cold air... and you might very well find yourself with dry cracked hands.

New Parents talk about poop

Since there is little milestones, I thought that I'd report that we are past the meconium (the super sticky tar that represents 9 months of in utero poop).... and onto the mustard seed poop (the unscented, yet extremely watery poop that you get when you start on breast milk.

Means that the milk has come in. Yeah!

Isn't that interesting :)

Stay tuned for more poop updates :)
