Becoming an "official" mom

Today was a pretty average day. Rob attended his Russian class, I went to Astronomy and Studio, and Max spent most of the day with his Grandma. I spent studio working with Bianca, my project partner, on furniture and finishes (the fun part!, unlike code) for our project. One of the websites we were checking out is www.2modern.com - very cool for anyone who likes furniture, lighting, and textiles. And then the afternoon/evening was spent at my parents house. Rob and I did invest in one of our favorite movies, though- the Goonies. Fun stuff! We have been enjoying the beautiful weather- I must admit I prefer warm weather to cold- but are not looking forward to the cool weather we are expecting this weekend. Here are some pictures of Max enjoying the beautiful weather...

The highlight of the day, however, was this afternoon when I was nursing Max. As much as I love breastfeeding and warm weather, this little man is an oven, so recently nursing him has been quite sweaty for both of us. Today was no different, he was roasting me and I could feel the sweat forming on his head. Then, all of a sudden, my hip start to get REALLY warm. I couldn't figure out why, until I felt where it was getting warm and discovered I was wet. As wonderful as our modern disposable diapers are, occasionally they do fail us. So Max managed to soak my side with his urine. It was a wonderful feeling, I hope you all get to experience the pleasure of getting peed on. And surprisingly, having a little boy, this was the first time he's peed on me. Now, thats not to say he hasn't squirted while getting a diaper change, he has just managed to get the wall or the changing table or his own face instead of me. I guess when you have a boy you aren't really official until you get peed on, so now I'm official.


  1. hahahahaha! Loved this story! We decided to try Shaelyn in a size 2 diaper over conference weekend to see if she was big enough for them yet. The answer is NO! We went to the church on Sunday morning to watch that session of conference, and Shaelyn let out a big "diaper noise" - unfortunately, the diaper was too big and she got poop all over me and Michael! There's nothing better than getting poop on your church clothes! So good job, Max! Your mom will be sure to remind you of when you peed on her when you're 16 and trying to impress all the girls!

  2. Gross and double gross. Ah things to look forward to when I become a mother...I remember my friend telling me when you are a mom you get use to everything! Once her kid started throwing up and she reached out to catch it!

    Not ready for that quite yet...

    And Jackie I am not sure if that plantation was used in the movie. I have never seen it to be honest with you!

  3. Congrats on becoming an official mom! After reading what it takes, I can't say I want that title.
