Say cheesie….poo

August 23, 2009

I always said when we ever have children I will get newborn/immediately home pictures of them ASAP.  So yesterday was supposed to be my day in the sun.  I made the appointment with the photographer, ordered some way cute newborn hats, made sure I had the perfect outfit–for both of us–, and was off to the studio.  Which, BTW, took 2.5 hours of perfectly planned timing to get us to the studio by 3:30.  I could hardly contain my excitement when we arrived…my day in the sun had come.  Let’s be realistic,  most of the things we do to our children are for our pure enjoyment.  At three weeks old, they are just happy with love, food, and a clean diaper.  Ahhh, maybe I should contemplate adapting that same attitude.    Anyhoo, the pictures started out innocently enough, she spit up all over daddy.   Which we found to be a wee bit bizarre, since she is not really a spitter, but nothing was going to deter me at this point.   We got a few cute pictures, then it was time for the typical newborn poses, generally taken without a diaper.  It was going okay, but then it all broke loose.  I was holding her in my lap propped up with my knees, looking deeply into her eyes, cooing at her for the camera, when she let go.  She doodied a huge one in my lap.  And again, and again.  I was sitting there helpless while she unloaded what seemed like every meal she had eaten in the last 24 hours.  Still motivated for the perfect picture, I pressed on.   Ainsley was finished, but not finished with the bodily fluid show.  Over the next 45 minutes, she proceeded to doodie on me 2 more times, while topping it off with three peepee’s.  All.over.my.shoes.  All I remember at one time is saying…save my shoes as my husband and the sweet photographer were trying to dry me off.  I believe that we did get some good shot.  Alas, mama said there would be days like this………
