Initially this post was going to just be about the spit up adventure. Because what adult doesn't wish that their mom had documented the day in which they had their first large, projectile vomiting experience at home? But Elise had other plans.
Following the spit up, I put Elise down for a nap to get some things done around the house while Kit went to work on a school project. When she awoke, she helped me get her bottle ready (aka fussed while pooping in my arms as I got her bottle ready). Then I went to change her while her milk warmed. It was clear as I took her diaper off that she was probably still working on filling said diaper so I attempted to hurry. However, the substance already in the diaper was rather persistent and difficult to remove from her bum so it was taking longer than I wanted.
It was during this time that she had a huge blow out. Huge as in all over both her dirty and clean diapers, all over the wipe I was holding, all over my hands and nearly up to my elbow (no exaggeration), all over the receiving blanket I had under her on the changing pad to swaddle her with and to keep the changing pad cover from getting dirty in just such a situation, and even a little on the actually changing pad cover.
Many wipes, another diaper, lots of Purell (for my hand and arm), clean clothes (she didn't actually get it on her other clothes but was due for an outfit change), a clean changing pad cover and a clean receiving blanket later, she feels much better. Oh, and I wish I had my camera handy right after she did her deed because she had the cutest look on her face. Her eyes were wide open and darting around and her little mouth was in the shape of a small "o" as if to say, "Oh, well, hmm, that felt surprisingly good."
I know this is blurry, but her little pouty face is just too darn cute!
Update 5/28: I realized I forgot to mention another first of Elise's from this day. She watched her first movie - Top Gun. Much like her friend Anthony who recently watched his first movie at home, she slept through the whole thing.
