Just one of those mornings

So Noah has been great lately about taking two naps a day. One in the morning. One in the afternoon, and occasionally one little cat nap while we are out and about. Well, every once in a while we have a morning like today. I think Noah has these just to make sure I know he is in charge and to keep me on my toes :)

I'm not complaining, I just think the mornings where everything that could possibly go wrong does are hilarious. I carry Noah downstairs after some cuddles in bed with Daddy. I start playing with him, and kissing him and he pukes all over me. I say "puke", but it's just milk coming up. It of course goes all down my shirt and through all my clothes. I go change my shirt, still laughing about the "puke", and as soon as I'm changed, I feel a warmth. His diaper leaked. New shirt again for me and Noah. I feed him squash for breakfast, and his new favorite trick is pulling his bib off and/or sticking fingers in his mouth to touch the squash then immediately rubbing his eyes with the said squash. Nice. New shirt for Noah.

Nap time. I go and put him down for his nap, and he of course spits up on the sheet about twenty minutes into the nap and then rubs his face in it, waking himself up. I change the sheet, change his clothes, get him all settled back down and asleep. He decides this is a great time to practice his rolling skills. Good job Noah, but really can we roll later? He wakes himself up one more time. I settle him back down and let him fall asleep on me. Guess what? He farts*, and wakes himself up. Best part was when he woke up from it, he poked his head up from my chest and smiled really big. He was pretty proud of himself.

Final score: 2 shirts for me
4 outfits for Noah
1 bed sheet

Anyway, even though this morning was "interesting", this afternoon was great. We went to lunch with Nate at Cafe Rio, and Noah is napping while I blog.

*For the record, it's not surprising that his farts wake him up on a regular basis. His toots are very "adult-like", making for awkward situations at church, restaurants, and any other public place. "Oh, that was the baby...". Awkward.


  1. Glad we're not the only ones who have interesting mornings or afternoons or evenings.

  2. Dontcha just love it! :) But then there are the moments that are like gold: Baby wakes up early from her nap, but then GOES BACK TO SLEEP. Yes!!!
