Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! We celebrated this year at our friends Joel and Helen’s house – thanks guys!

My beautiful son gave me two Easter gifts, one I loved and one I was not so fond of.

Gift #1: He slept through the night!!! He went to sleep around 11:30 and didn’t get up until 7! Sweet bliss…I forgot how wonderful it could feel to get 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Of course, this gift only lasted one night, but I sure enjoyed it while it lasted. And I needed the rest for what awaited me later that day…

Gift #2: I was so careful. I waited to dress him in his cute Easter outfit until literally one minute before leaving for church to try to save it from being ruined by some sort of toxic bodily waste product. Checked his diaper right before leaving. Clean. About 3 ½ minutes into the church service, literally, I exaggerate not, my sweet Luke had an explosion like none other. We’re talking poo everywhere! He even managed to somehow get some on one of his cute socks which matched his cute shirt Aunt Tanya got him, also now covered in poo. His daddy was on stage singing in the choir, so I was on my own to deal with it. I quickly grabbed the diaper bag and frantically made a beeline for the bathroom to peel off his now toxic clothing, only to discover *Sweet Lord!* I only had three wipes left which was not nearly enough for this mess. I found myself repeating “I don’t know what to do…I don’t know what to do…I don’t know what to do”…pretty sure I scared that little girl who was in the bathroom with me. Eventually I got the mess cleaned up and dressed him in his backup onesie that I had in the diaper bag. So instead of looking all cute like I planned, he wore a plain white boring onesie for his first Easter service with no pants or socks. *Sigh* This wasn’t in the manual. So needless to say, we didn’t get any pictures of Luke in his outfit before the Easter Disaster of 2009. The picture of us above is him in his *third* outfit of the day. I have to laugh or I would cry. I’m pretty sure if there was a contest for Poopiest Baby Ever, Luke would win hands down. We’re so proud.

These are just some other cute pics of Luke this week:

Oh, well. He still looks awfully cute in his little stripey shirt. At least you took a picture! We didn't get one single one yesterday. Rotten parents! Glad you had a full-night's sleep! May they continue!

What's a little poo?! Goodness, Sondra - good work choosing to laugh! That's the real battle most times - Happy Easter and your son is adorable! Cute outfit notwithstanding! I bet Chad felt horrible that you had to deal with that all on your own - ahh, the joys of motherhood -

So, are you dreaming of a new residence with it's own washer/dryer yet? :) Definitely a good idea to laugh, otherwise you'd be spending much of the next 2 years crying over spilled poo! Come to my house, it's poo x2!! :)
