You Forgot to Mention...

So I am currently 17 days into this whole 'Motherhood' thing, and I have to say... compared to a lot of people I know, I thought I was relatively prepared for what was coming... However there are still some things that have  caught me off guard!

First of all, the whole "Never wake a sleeping baby" is false advertising. As a matter of fact, I have spent the last 17 days waking a sleeping baby every 3 hours to feed him.  It's so sad to have to wake such a peaceful little guy... And he isn't usually happy about it either (That is until I start feeding him, then he's happy).

Now, I expected to get peed on occasionally, especially with a little boy... it comes with the territory... HOWEVER... I did not realize the dang kid would pee on me EVERY TIME I CHANGE HIS DIAPER!!! By the way, he does not do this to his father, or his mimi, or other grandmother... It's like he knows it's me, and it's his time to let it all go... I'm not saying I didn't expect it... I just didn't expect it to happen quite so often!!

Same goes with being pooped on... This kid has pooped on me 5 times in 17 days... 6 if you include the blowout diaper that made a mess all over my shorts (well they were Eric's shorts, but I was wearing them).  The projectile factor caught me off guard as well... that poo can FLY!!!

Due to the whole 'pee on mom every time she changes my diaper' mindset that my little guy has, the amount of laundry in my life is pretty overwhelming. I mean, I imagine our water bill will double because I am doing at least twice as many loads of laundry as I did pre-baby (granted, I did laundry as little as possible prior to baby... so that may have something to do with it!)

Those are the main surprises so far... but I'm sure there will be plenty more in the future... I'll keep you posted!

Oh, and here's a couple pics of Andy and Patton playing together!
