Slacker Slacker Bo-Backer

Hello all it's me...the slacker slacker bo-backer. I haven't posted in a while, well, because I've been focused on motherhood. Motherhood is awesome. Don't get me wrong, it's completely exhausting at times, but the truth is - it's pretty freaking awesome. Now, we (Binderclips and I) have had our share of ups and downs, but I love it. Would I go through labor again? Right now I plead the 5th.

So, where did I leave off last time I posted? Oh yeah that's right, our little Baby G had just arrived!

Since then a lot has happened but let me share with you the experience we had getting her newborn pictures taken (and let this be a lesson to all of you possibly wanting to do the same thing in the future). Here is the chain of events:

  1. We show up, photographer insists Baby G is naked
  2. Baby G is now naked and pissed (majorly pissed)
  3. We try to get some pictures of her on her belly, she screams as if she is being tortured
  4. We decide  to stop doing that
  5. Photog decides Binderclips needs to hold Baby G with her hands and head on his shoulder. She's still naked at this point. Binderclips cannot be seen in the photos since he's wearing black and the background is black and the photog is taking the pictures very close up. This is a good thing.
  6. As soon as the photog starts snapping pictures a yell is heard from Binderclips
  7. Upon further examination it is discovered that Baby G has peed ALL OVER Binderclips
  8. The fun doesn't stop there
  9. The photog continues to snap pictures and another yell is heard from Binderclips... this time just slightly more urgent
  10. Upon another examination it is discovered that Baby G has pooped ALL OVER Binderclips (Quick note here: Baby G is being breastfed. Breastfed baby poop is usually very runny and it was in this case, just fyi.)
  11. We decide to take a break to clean her and Binderclips up
  12. As soon as we clean her up I feed her a little bit and am holding her trying to comfort her (maybe for approx. 15 minutes). 
  13. I hand her to Binderclips who has just gotten cleaned up
  14. As soon as she's in his arms she poops all over him again
  15. As I decide to go clean up the poop that has landed on the ground I'm crouching under Binderclips and Baby G who are standing above me. At this point I realize I could get pooped or peed on, so I move.
  16. Not even a second after I move Baby G proceeds to pee all over Binderclips
  17. We all laugh hysterically
Now I know Baby G is not going to enjoy this story being shared once she gets old enough to read but, seriously? How could I not share it? Right? Any who, I'll leave you with some of the pictures taken that day. I will try to post more frequently but I'm not making any promises. Later gators!

  1. That same thing happened to us when we were doing newborn photos! Nobody tells you to bring extra clothes for Dad, but they should!

  2. those pictures are too cute... hilarious stories too behind them! I was wondering about you the other day when I stumbled upon your blog and you hadn't posted in awhile - glad all is well! :)

  3. I love your newborn photos! I just went through the process myself this past week and fortunately my little one did not have the screaming fits. I thought he would for sure but somehow the photographer managed to keep him half asleep! Congrats on your beautiful girl.

  4. Lovely photos. The one with the bow points to a gal that might well have a wry streak. And the one with you is cute. What the flying falubaas the last one is saying is just beyond me. Why not have a picture of her on his belly. Who holds a teeny-weeny infant, actually who holds anything like that, ever. The next move is to bounce it for a ball is the only thing I can think of.

  5. How funny! Poor poor Binderclips! But you're all beautiful...well, Binderclips in a mystery!

  6. TB: Well I should have definitely talked to you beforehand - let that be a lesson to me! :)

    ASJ: Thank you! Yes, I have been a major slacker...I really need to "get on the stick" as my mom would say. LOL

    Skeptical Czarina: Thank you so much! So did your little one pee or poop on anyone? Man, you got lucky...it was sooo stressful for me with her crying like that. :-\

    Roaring Forties: Thank you very much! That would have been a great picture actually! :)

    Susie: Thank you! Hope all is well with you...I believe I'm officially back to blogging but we'll see. Wish me luck!

  7. GREAT story!!! And... those photos are beautiful! Totally worth being soaked in pee! :o)

  8. Oh - and I wanted to add.... ALWAYS have spare clothes with you! I keep mine in my car. I've been randomly thrown-up/spit-up on, and sometimes merely wiping it off just isn't good enough when you're out. That trip all the way home just to change clothes is a FAIL!!!

  9. He did poop a little on her but other than that he did pretty well :)

  10. Awww she is such a cutie. You are a proud mom for sure.
