1. He is about to have an ass-'splosion.
2. He's naked.
3. He's hungry.
He sleeps pretty well, maybe a bit too well. I often have to wake him up to feed him or to roust him while I am feeding him so that he'll get enough to eat. Not that I am complaining. I value sleep too much and am happy to get 3 hours in a row at night. Speaking of sleep, now that I am no longer hugely pregnant, ohmygosh, sleeping is SO much more comfy. I can lay on my stomach again, my hips don't hurt, I can roll over with ease. It. Is. GLORIOUS!
The biggest adjustment for me has been the fact that Jasper is a HE. The first time I changed his diaper and was faced with his penis and tiny balls I was like, Uuummmm, Holy crap! what do I do with these?? You'd think that I was handling a stick of dynamite that could explode at any moment as I wiped him off. I've been peed on, peed at, and shat at more times in this past week than ever before in my life. Most of this has taken place at the changing table but yesterday during book club I was holding him and out of nowhere he just started peeing all over me. I have no idea how it escaped through diaper and clothing. Of course I'd brought spare clothes for him but didn't think that I'd need some for myself!
Of course, a major difference this time around is of course having Ruby to take care of as well. People ask how she's doing with Jasper all the time and I'd love to say, "Oh, yeah, she's doing so great!" But we've had some issues. Her listening, which we didn't think could get any worse, has, she's a little rough with him at times, and she's decided that peeing in the corner of her room is the cool thing to do. I know things will get better and thankfully I've found the patience to deal and my shit has not slid off my cracker just yet. It's not all bad though, she is eager to help, and basically does almost everything that I ask her to do when it comes to getting things for him and handing me things when I'm stuck on the couch feeding him. I think she likes him but he's far too inactive for her taste.
Heath goes back to work on Thursday which sucks mainly because its been nice spending time together. Because Ruby is in daycare I'm not worried about handling two on my own. Not so sure how I'll fare in two weeks when Heath goes to GenCon in Indianapolis but we'll just hope for the best.
