Three Weeks Old

Our little Jillian is three weeks old today. I can't believe how fast that went. She is still pretty much just eating and sleeping. We are getting smiles from her when she is asleep. Probably dreaming about eating. She is an angel baby and we are so blessed to have her in our family.

How was your day?

Thursdays are the worst day of the week for us. Not only do I have to pick up Emily and Thomas from school at seperate times, Emily has piano at 2:30 (school gets out for her at 2:07), both her and Thomas have soccer. So basically I leave the house at 1:30 and don't return until 3:15 and then back out the door for soccer.

Yesterday was a typical Thursday. Jillian was taking a super long nap. I fed her around 11:00 and she didn't wake up before I went to pick up Emily. As I was dropping Emily off at piano Jillian started screaming. She was really hungry. I had just enough time to feed her at school as I waited for Thomas. I park the car at school and get her out of the carseat and she has messy pants. So I lay her on my lap and start to change her. Thats when I discovered I didn't have any wipes. No big deal, a little poo, I'll just use this napkin and clean her up. As I was reaching for the clean diaper it happened. Poo spraying everywhere. Like a firehose. It was absolutely everywhere. My purse was covered, the steering wheel, the center console, the new magazine I was looking forward to reading, my arms up to the elbows (don't ask me how both arms got it), Jillian's clothes, ears, chin. It was the biggest mess ever. I had to call Sue to come get Thomas. When we finally got home, after first getting Emily from piano, I opened up my purse and some how it was inside. How can something so small make such a gigantic mess? Covering her face in shame
Her legs were stained yellow
My bag before I discovered the surprise inside
I couldn't take a picture of the mess on my shirt so
my pants will have to do
