Dr. Poops

One of the nicknames our daughter has earned is "Dr. Poops" because of her great capacity for pooping. She pooped 8 times just on her first day in the world!! Her daddy learned very fast how to change her diaper, as quick as possible because she HATES getting her diaper changed, and then cheer her up afterwards.
We've noticed that when she poops, she makes a great and easily recognized 'poopy face'. My mom and I had the brilliant idea of taking pictures of her poopy face.Here she is peacefully sleeping before...

Then she woke herself up, and started making faces.

She let us know when she was all finished too!


Understandably, she doesn't generally tolerate having poopy pants for very long so a big pooping incident is almost always followed by some general fussiness until we get her changed. Thankfully my mom and the Studly Hubby are still happy to do this!

She is NOT going to thank you for this post in about 12 years time! I love her "movement" face. Newborn changes aren't bad at all. The yellow curds that breast fed newborns produce is their way of easing you into the world of the dirty diaper.

Peggy - don't TELL her! This is a post that I've decided not to duplicate in the baby book.

I always thought the expression "spending quality time with your kids" meant changing their diapers. You get to say things that you'll never say again in your life, like "what a BEAUTIFUL poopy-doopy!".

Ha! Sounds like you and Linda are spending your days doing VERY important things. Isn't it amazing how much time and energy newborns can zap! But it is SO worth it! :)

We should probably refrain from calling Layla "Dr. Poops" when she gets a little older. But it's sure cute now.

Love ya,
Aunt Lisa

I've never found anything funny about diapers before, however the "real-time" photos of the diaper change waiting to happen was great.
