So I love doing laundry, always have. It's kind of like a stress reliever for me...don't ask me why! Since having Henry, I've been able to practice my love of laundry on an every other day basis! Well recently, Henry has taken a liking to sleep on his tummy at night with his lil tush in the air...super cute! At first my nurse instincts kicked in and I was checking on him every 30 minutes or so, I can turn him back over but he then just shows off his skills and he's back on him tummy in no time! I'm finally getting more comfortable with it, but now that's not the biggest problem. Since he started doing this, he has also started waking up wet :( It was like clockwork initially, he'd fuss a little around 9:30pm, I'd go in there and turn him on his back, he'd continue to fuss (which totally isn't like him). So the first night I took him out of his crib and tried rocking him. I felt something strange, and then realized he was soaked on his front side. I stripped him down, changed him and put new clothes on and back to sleep he went, in a matter of seconds! The second night he again woke up around 9:30pm (not quite awake, just fussing), so I immediately checked to see if he was wet, and again he was! This time I kept him in his crib, stripped him down, changed him and he didn't even wake up the entire time I was doing this...amazing!
So I've done some research and I guess this happens to a lot of mothers out there who have boys! Suggestions were: go up a size in the diaper, make it tighter, point 'it' down and so on. The only thing left for me to do was to go up a size, so that's what I tried last lil man in a size 3 diaper...he's growing too fast. Anyway, I checked on him at 9:30pm and he was dry...sweet!!! So to bed I went. I woke up at 4:30ish and he was still in there sound asleep (so I saw on our video monitor). He woke up around 5:15 to feed, and when I went to change him I noticed he was a little! So I again changed everything and back to sleep he went. Oh the joy of having a boy. Back to doing more research on what I can do next, one thing I read was to put a cloth diaper over his so that you only have to change that if need be...I may just have to try that! So with starting solids, the normal every day laundry and now this, I swear I could do laundry every day and never be quite done with it!

But who can complain about something small like this when you have this face to look at!

Reading one of our favorite books, the Runaway Bunny!

  1. Love the pictures!!

    We are having diaper issues too, ours are a little bit more messy though. I have tried everything, including a bunch of different brands/types of diapers. No matter what it shoots straight up the back. Yesterday at daycare alone we had 3 change of clothes - poor Lauren came home in boy clothes because we only had 2 extra outfits there.

    Good luck figuring things out for Little Henry.

  2. Ha! I find this all very funny :) Who knew, right? The joys of being a mom. I can't wait.

    By the way - Tara you're nuts! You love to do laundry?!?!? Do you want to swing my Minnesota and do some of ours?

    ps ... love the pics. He is SO CUTE!
