In honor of this doctor's visit, the Bubba and I gave Lou her first bath-bath (not sponge bath) yesterday! It was actually pretty exciting.
It started out all normal:
And then I decided that the open window created too much of a draft, so I closed it. And dumped the potted plants along the window sill into the tub and covered Lucy with potting soil. I didn't think to take a photo until it was already half cleaned up:
Poor kid, it scared her half to death - it's a good thing the pots didn't land on her, just the dirt...
Anyway, today was Lucy's two week doctor's appointment - she's 18 days old now. She's 21 1/2 inches long, and weighs - GET THIS - 9 pounds 6 ounces! She's gained a pound and a half in the past two weeks! The doctor was pretty excited about that. She's a good eater just like her mommy, what can I say?
Just as the nurse came in and instructed me to get her naked, Lucy performed the most explosive bowel movement I've seen yet. It was a super impressive blowout. Good thing this new mommy had stuffed a change of outfit into my bag as an after thought. The nurse actually had a seat and waited for me to clean Lucy up. It was pretty amazing.
And then after the nurse weighed and measured Lucy and left, I threw the diaper into the trash. Except I missed the trash and the diaper went onto the floor inside the trash cabinet. Only then did I notice that there was a HUGE sign in capital letters saying NO DIAPERS. Whoops. So I tried to open the door to retrieve my mistake, but of course the doors are locked so the little kids waiting for the doctor can't play in the trash. Sigh. I just hope they wait until the very end of the day to open that so that they can't blame deer-in-headlights Lucy's mom. Ah well, at least the diaper wasn't full of kid-eating-solid-foods poop...
