Eating BaconThat’s what we should rename this blog, Poopy Team.  Because frankly, baby poo is all I talk about any more.

So this morning we woke to a few inches of snow, dropping temps and a mean wind, and promptly decided to both work from home.  But then our internets broke, making it so we couldn’t actually work.  Nate got on the phone with the tech people, who put him on hold and promised him a very long wait.  I was chilling with Isla on the couch, when suddenly she unleashed a monster poo.  Now at the time, she was only wearing a tiny, thin little contour diaper, for reasons you’re probably not interested in.  I had her sitting on top of anotheStockingr prefold diaper, just in case there was a poo incident.  At least… I thought I had her on top of the second diaper.  But wouldn’t you know, I sure didn’t.  And all that poo (and there was a lot, about 2 days’ worth) came shooting right out the side of her diaper ALLLLLLL OVER ME.  Nate put his phone down with the hold music on speaker phone and scooped Isla up to deal with her diaper situation.  I attempted to contain the poo explosioSocklessn on me with another diaper and started slowly making my way to the bathroom, but of course that was the moment someone picked up Nate’s call.  Somehow I managed to get his phone to him before they hung up on us, and not leave a trail of baby poo all through the house.  Half an hour later, all poo had been dealt with, and our internets was again working, though not because of the super un-helpful tech people.  Table walking

The thing about being covered in poo by 9am is, your day can only get better.

In other news, Isreadingla rolled over yesterday, from back to tummy.  None of this rolling from tummy to back first stuff for her.  She does what she wants.  And immediately after that achievement, she seemed to decide that big girls who can roll over require more constant entertainment.  No more hanging out happily in her swing, thank you very much, and the mirror ball thing that used to be so fascinating is now so last week.  Rolling Over Isla prefers to be very involved in whatever you’re doing, unless whatever you’re doing is B-O-R-I-N-G, in which case her various toys might bMarchinge cool for about 5 minutes each, or you could sing her a song and do a little dance, but your dance had better be good.  But this is how it goes.  Any time we start to get a groove, she’s like “oh you think you’ve got me figured out, eh?  Sounds like it’s time for me to bust out a whole new bag of tricks.”  Well I say bring it baby.  Let’s see what you got.

    Oh this is great–so sorry we missed the “poo” incident. Now the fun starts with the rolling over and wanting more entertainment. If you think you were having trouble getting work done at home before, just wait now. FUN AND GAMES TIME IS HERE! Just wait until she starts crawling and discovers the doggie door.

    Awww, she is such a cutie! Sounds like a great day at the Solas household. Can’t wait to see the “poo machine”!

    Dear Poopy Team, thanks for the great post and pictures! I am glad to hear that you managed, Karen, to get to the phone and the bathroom without depositing extra poop somewhere along the way. Sound like today was exciting enough, so save that for another day (it’s inevitable, don’t you think?). In the last pic, it looks like Rolling Over Isla is on her sheepskin on the floor. She’s graduated! How’s Bruno dealing with her on the floor?

    That little poop machine is the cutest! Perhaps I will change my tone after experiencing the poo first hand, but I doubt it. 9 days till we find out!

    I forgot to say how much I love that first picture where Isla is gnawing on her little piggie (I think I have the species right on that toy…). She means business!

    Yay for blog posts! And thanks for all the pics, I second mom’s sentiments. That first one is great, she looks very fearsome!
