Baby’s First Valentine’s Day

Posted in Baby's First, Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting at 10:16 pm by Momma

Today was The Buggle’s very first Valentine’s day! And it started out with a bang, make that a blast. This morning just before 5 am I hear The Buggle squirming and grunting around in his crib. Since he had already ate, I knew he was trying to wake up. And, um sorry Valentine’s Day or not no member of this family is allowed to begin their day before 6:45 at the absolute earliest–7:30 is more like it. So I quickly scurried into his room, scooped him up and put him in bed with us, 99% of the time this buys us at least an hour and a half. Not today, oh no! He had a sweet Valentine treat a brewin’ for the Momma! Lucky Me! All the tell tale signs of a big poop were there: grunting, flailing, tooting, screeching….boy was I in for it. Finally, I hear his big finale and give him a few more minutes to finish up before grabbing my glasses (I wouldn’t want to miss anything!) and heading for the changing table and entering the battle zone. I proceed to get my line of artillery in order with the opening of the fresh diaper, pulling out a handful of wipies, the handy baby powder scented mini-garbage bags for the stinkies, and then I began opening my 5 am Valentine’s Day gift.

Nothing says, “I Love You” quite like the pungent aroma of peas and sweet potato baby poop! It’s one heck of a wake up call!

Luckily, after opening the diaper I noticed that I escaped a near blow out! The poo went to the very tippy top of the diaper without exploding up the back. Whew–that was close! I arm myself with a wipie or seven and begin the dirty work. Just as I am reaching for the new diaper…there is a BLAST of doodie that explodes on the changing pad with a splat. Ugh! So we begin the entire process over again, only this time with a Buggle with a WAY to big grin of a on his face! Oh yeah, he was super proud of himself. Giggling and thwoping his little feet. Did I mention it was FIVE AM?

After I got the baby all wrapped up again he was all fired up! There wasn’t a shot in hell that we were going back to bed! Yippee! So we headed downstairs, played in the exersaucer and watched a brand new Valentine edition of The Backyardigans. I’m pretty sure he thought it was Christmas!

Let’s not make this a Valentine tradition, okay Buggle? Flowers and chocolate will suffice nicely. Heck, I’d settle for Happy Valentine’s Day Momma! 😉
