She might be the fourth child but she has brought us many new and different challenges. We thought by the time we had her, we had experienced most everything. We were wrong. She's our only climber. She's our worst sleeper. She's our best medicine taker. These are all minor things compared to what awaited us this morning.
I was snuggled in my warm, cozy bed this morning when I heard her wake up. She sounds so sweet when she first wakes up. She sings and plays with her babies. She is always happy when she wakes up. These were my first thoughts this morning...quickly followed by another nice thought. Daddy should get up with her this morning and let Mommy sleep in for a few minutes this morning. And, he did!
But sleeping in was not meant to be today.
Today was the day that we were introduced to our first and only diaper remover! Yes. You read that right. She woke up, didn't like her poopy diaper and so...she took it off. In her crib. By herself.
We had a blond haired, blue eyed, brown covered baby girl staring up at us from the crib this morning. The rest I will just you imagine for yourself.
I should be thankful that the mess was mainly contained in one area. I should also be thankful that this is our only child to do it. But, EWWW, it was gross!
The bright side? I already had my SOL topic for the day taken care of!
Can you believe this sweet little face could do such a thing?
