That Darn Poop

When it comes to changing diapers, I like to think that I have a lot of experience under my belt. I had a baby brother born when I was 10, I started babysitting when I was 12, I worked in the nursery at church from the age of 15 until 19... working in the one year old room every single Sunday night for 2 years straight. That's not even mentioning the fact that I have been doing nothing but changing diaper after diaper for the past 11 months. So considering my credentials, I like to think that I know a thing or two when it comes to diaper changing.

Zachariah has been trying some new foods lately. The newest one has been a quesadilla! Don't worry, it isn't a fully loaded quesadilla or anything. I just put shredded cheese and smooshed up black beans in a tortilla shell, then I cut it up into really small pieces (since he still has NO teeth to chew with). Much to my delight, he LOVED it. I was very excited that we have another food item to put on the menu. But every since I have given him that dadgum quesadilla, his poop has been downright nasty. I am not talking about "ew, thats gross" kind of diapers. I am talking about the I-have-almost-vomited-every-time-I-change-one-of-these kind of diapers. And its not just one nasty diaper that I have had to change. Its been 3 or 4 nauseating poopy diapers a day, going on the THIRD day now. I have been living the good life, just changing one poopy diaper a day. Zachariah has been on a nice schedule. But nooooo. Not since I had the bright idea to introduce him to black beans. Honestly folks, in all of my diaper changing, I have never smelled anything like this.

Anyone have a poop story that will make me feel grateful for this nastiness? That is, if anyone else actually talks about poop on a public blog... Is that over the line when it comes to blog topics?

One poopy a day would be nice. My daughter has very regular bowels and her typical diaper routine is at least 3 stinkies a day. All I have to say is wait until birthday cake! These have been disgusting this week with bits of grapes in them- Gag me! They are gross! Bet you can't wait now. ha ha ha
