We had an exciting incident this morning as this morning was bath time. I find bathing a baby very difficult without another set of hands to help. She's just so darn slippery and wiggly and I'm always afraid I'm going to bump her head or get her ears underwater when she lays back onto the headrest... but I digress, when bath time was over I put Lucy on her changing pad in her crib to go get a diaper. Now USUALLY I put a washcloth under her bottom because we have peed on ourselves one too many times, but this one time that I don't what to I come back to? Poop...and pee... all the way up to her HEAD! EEK! On my nice clean, delicious Burt's Bees' smelling baby. Damn!
What to do? I don't want to run another bath, and there is just too much poo to simply wipe her down, (poo in the HAIR people, poo.in.the.hair). So I jump in the shower with her. I expected that she wouldn't like this very much, but she LOVED it! She laughed the entire time. Apparently showers are hilarious! So much easier than the bath too... I think we've found a new way to clean this baby. Hurrah!
As I type right now she's sitting in her ExerSaucer, a gift from "The Easter Bunny", which in actuality is my mom's friend "Grandma Barb" (as she calls herself) who is extremely smitten with our Lucy (really, who isn't?). We had lunch today with the girls from work and next up on our busy vacation schedule will be napping while watching Oprah and doing a load of cloth diapers (which I love and will post about this week).
Man, I would love this to be my life everyday, yes even the washing dirty diapers part. I'm totally not kidding.
Lastly, Since people often ask me questions in the comments section and I never get around to answering half of them I'd like to do a question and answer post this week. So if you'd have any burning questions to ask of me about...well, anything, go ahead and ask in the comments of this post. I'll do the Q&A post later this week.
