The Joys of Motherhood
After a very long weekend of fussiness with our little guy, I was not looking forward to making it through the night. However, it was surprisingly one of the best nights we've had since we brought Austin home. After eating a very early breakfast, Austin and I were finally able to get some more sleep. All in all, I felt the morning was off to a wonderful start until I fed him again. His final burp resulted in him spitting up all over himself and me. Somehow it ended up in my hair AND on the back of my shirt!! Nice, Austin! Later, when I took him into his room to change his dirty diaper, imagine my surprise to discover he was not done going to the bathroom AFTER I took his diaper off. As I was trying to take care of this situation, Austin started peeing all over himself. As if this was not enough I looked up to see him spitting up. At this point I decided a bath was in order. This is especially great since we can actually give him a bath now that his umbilical cord has finally fallen off. This is the part of the story where I tell you that Austin's new nickname is "Old Faithful". In the middle of this apparently very relaxing bath, Austin decides to relieve himself AGAIN! I had no idea there was still something left to get rid of in there!! In the words of my friend Andrea...Jesus take the wheel!! I have to say that life is definitely not going to be boring and he will always keep me on my toes.
