Bowel movement

I like a headline that demands attention!

It's official, I'm a parent. Elizabeth had her first bowel movement since we've had her, and it was on my watch! Tara was unable to put Elizabeth down for a nap while I was out walking around town looking for groceries and sundry items. Once I returned, Tara decided to take a nap herself.

We had been a bit worried about the "BM situation." We even emailed the doctor at Vanderbilt. He replied and said don't worry, just give her more juice, etc., probably muttering under his breath, "And stop bothering me, dummy."

Anyway, during Tara's 1-1/2 hour nap, Elizabeth had the BM, we played happily in the "living room" after that, she wandered off and peed her pants, I gave her a shower, and put clean clothes back on her. All firsts for me, I'm pretty sure. But really, once is enough. I can't wait until she's FULLY potty-trained and able to bathe and dress herself. :)
