Taya has been such a little gem lately, for the past 5 mornings she's been sleeping in until 9:30!! I can't tell you how nice it's been to sleep in! She must be going through a growth spurt because she still has two full naps during the day. She also must know how exhausted her mother has been and maybe she just decided I needed a break. Speaking of break... Can't wait for my trip back home next week!!!! I'm so so so ready for a vacation! I guess I'm kind of on a vacation right now, being that we're away from our home, but still I wouldn't call it a "vacation". As you can probably guess, my little princess takes a lot out of me and therefore I am beat and so ready for some babysitters. So, to my sisters and my mommy, get ready, here I come... :) I told my friend today that I probably would be the best mom ever if I didn't have to feed Taya or change her diaper. Those two things alone make my job almost impossible. Cameron and my sister can attest to this. If you've read my previous posts I know what you're thinking... and yes, sometimes I remember to put her diaper on!! I seriously should video tape me trying to change her diaper. The kid is ALL OVER THE PLACE! I thought it was hard when she was a baby, just as you took the diaper off poop would launch out before you even had a chance to think, but no, it's much harder now. P.S. does it ever get any easier!?! So maybe to go along with my "Parenting for Dummies", will someone also buy me a changing table with full body straps to tie my child down?? Is that bad!?! Needless to say, I'm excited to get to Utah to pass off the diaper duties to someone else! Maybe a video later... if you're lucky.

Yes, I am definitely one of the people that can back up your stories on this post. It's amazing that a little baby somehow has more strength than a full grown adult when it comes to diaper changing :) Hopefully one day soon it will just be a funny memory. Until then, you should just work on the whole grow-another-arm thing. Good luck!

I totally understand how it is with changing diapers. Emi ALWAYS poops and pees when her diaper is off! In fact, today I had her diaper off to put her in her bath and she pooped on my hand. Ugh. Don't you just love being a mom? :)

Mady has become the exact same when it comes to diaper time - rolling all over the place, kicking her legs, you name it. We try and do it as FAST as possible, but it is SO hard.

Have fun on your little vaca!
