What Post-Partum Has Taught Lily

I can't believe it, but it's already been a week!
We've been on our own since Tuesday, and today Eamon is staying extra, extra late at work because they have a catering. In this short time, Lily has learned a few things about post-partum mamas.

If you thought Mama was slow before...
Lily has figured out that not only can she outrun me, but she gets a head start since I have to put down the baby, and make sure Laverne and Shirley are covered up. She's been pretty good for the most part, but sometimes...not so much.

Got a problem? Coconut it.
We have been using coconut oil on eh-vry-thing. Boobies, booties, boo-boos, the list is never ending...and I can tell our coconut oil budget is going to have to increase. Lily took it to a whole new level yesterday afternoon though when she decided Rusty needed coconut oil fur conditioner...I wasn't very thrilled about that one.

Mama gets to wear a diaper and poop in it
For a few days I was in Depends and Lily looked at me like "Ok lady, I can't wear them, but YOU can? Something's wrong here" Then she came into the bathroom with me and saw the blood. She screamed "POOP! POOP, MAMA!" I tried correcting her and let her know that it was blood, but then she freaked out because my hoo ha had turned into a giant Owie...There's just no winning with this one.

I hope you've all had an awesome week! Here's some newborn lovin from my baby girl

Hi, I'm new to the blog; I loved it so much I sat down and read the entire blog in one evening with a cup of coffee. Congrats on having such a wonderful family and relationship with Jesus. It's been fun getting to know you. :D
