Madeleine has taken to not having a bowel movement for 2 days and then she just explodes. Of course, this always happens in the evenings, and always after Alex has gone to work already. LOL!! Somehow he misses all the gnarly diapers. How is that fair??
I think it’s Baby M’s way of telling me that she loves getting a bath and wants to remind me not to forget that she gets to soak in her warm water for a little bit. (of course, this is not actually true, but it’s how it seems) Silly girl. I always wait to give her her bath until she poops because it’s almost every 48 hours, predictably, these days. And she almost always needs a bath afterwards. You’ll see. Tonight’s was not anywhere near as bad as it’s been before, but it’s the first one I had my phone and thought to take pictures of the progress. LOL! This poor child is going to kill me when she’s a teenager.
So tonight I was hanging out with her on the couch. She’d just eaten and started making grunting noises. This isn’t unusual, as she seems to have a bit of gas much of the time. But then I heard the distinct pooping noise. This is a hard noise to describe and can often be confused with gas, except it sounds a bit more liquidy, if that makes sense. And it just kept happening. And happening. And happening. Ooooooh boy.
I was very excited because when I stood her up and turned her around to do the ‘explosion inspection’ I didn’t see anything. Wo0t!! Maybe it wouldn’t be a huge mess this time. So I carried her upstairs, laid her down on her changing table – which is outfitted with a cloth diaper to lay her bum on for occasions such as this. That way I’m not having to wash the changing pad cover every 2 days. There’s also a little cloth diaper insert that I use to catch her drool since she’s such a drooler now. Anyway, I started unsnapping her snaps without paying too much attention to her sleeper because she’d passed the explosion inspection, and this is what I saw:
I guess it was a sneak explosion!
Oh that funny girl, she cracks me up.
