Lots of things happened while I pounded out Kellan’s birth story……
He turned a month old (WOW):
I had to give up dairy products. Poor Kellan kept having serious tummy troubles and I read that dairy products tend to be the culprit. So far, it’s looking like dairy was the gastrointestinal offender, as we haven’t had any major tummy rumbles/ridiculous gas/baby screaming in discomfort.
So…..I guess this means I made my first big motherly sacrifice (Not really. The broken vajayjay trumps dairy free).
Do you know how hard it is giving up dairy? Did anyone realize how many things OTHER THAN MILK contain dairy??
Related: I miss cheese.
Over the weekend, this happened:
Tim left early Saturday morning with my car and came home Saturday afternoon with that.
I think it means I’m officially a mom, now.
I also probably should have bid farewell to my (now former) car.
I mean…it was a good car….loyal and faithful and dependable. It’s like I sent it packing without it even knowing it was going anywhere. Mean little game I (didn’t know I) played.
(Honestly, I haven’t driven it since before Kellan, which is over a month ago)
(Related: I hope I remember how to drive)
(Also related: the new car is a Toyota Highlander Limited)
I sucked my first booger from Kellan’s nose (gag, gag, gag). I’m a booger-phobe and believe me I tried to avoid said action at all costs.
I’m still coming to grips with my new reality: I can no longer escape free range boogers. This makes me sad. And cringe.
I’ve realized I miss being married.
Good news: I’m still 100% married.
Not as good news: I miss my marriage.
(more on that later)
I’ve become a pro at the super fast, OMG-did-he-wake-up-is-he-crying?! shower.
Related: The water hitting my nipples stings like a crazy, tiny person walloping on my little nubs with a mini whip, so I’ve also mastered shielding them from the dagger water.
I finally understand why, as hard as it is and as sleep deprived, grungy and non-sexy one feels, you miss this infant phase.
Because they’re so tiny and helpless and love you without question.
You are their entire world.
They never disobey and they will never snuggle and melt into your arms the same way when they’re two.
