The Poop Story

Well, I changed my first diaper last night and boy was it exciting.  After watching the nurse do it, I figured I saw enough to do it on my own. Ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha. 

 Anyways, so I checked her diaper at about 10 last night and it looked like someone had spilled a bowl full of brownie batter into the diaper.  I get to work, unlatching the diaper and beginning to wipe, when Sara Beth decides its time to spit up .. and then start to choke on the spit up.  So I am standing there between a rock and a smelly place with no idea how to proceed.

I'm not sure how, but I think I ended up wiping most of her, wrapping her in a blanket, holding her to my shoulder, clearing the spit up, setting her back down, discarding the blanket, and applying a 2nd clean diaper as the first got lost in the crossfire.

In summary, changing diapers is hard.  Oh, and for the people requesting a picture of Sara Beth that shows off her beautiful brown hair, check out this pic:
