A great reminder to me to stop and smell the roses. Quell that sense of urgency. Let BB be a baby. The surprises are worth it.

All Mushy Inside
This afternoon there was a poopy diaper. I anticipated a struggle to keep BB on his back. He used to try to play with the jar of ihle's paste whenever I'd leave the room to wash up after a diaper change, and I'd always snatch it away from him. I have an empty jar of it in his room (I've been too lazy to clean up the container to be recycled) so I gave it to him to play with while I got the poopy diaper off and cleaned him up. It worked! As soon as I had the last bit of poo residue wiped off, up he sprang, like a jack-in-the-box. I decided just to go with it; after all, there was no huge rush in getting a new diaper on and getting him dressed again. So what does he do as soon as he sits up? He holds out the jar so I could have a nibble too. Awwwwww! And that is how you make my heart melt.
