And then there were two. (Alternate title: WHY DID NO ONE PROPERLY WARN ME ABOUT BOYS AND DIAPER CHANGES)

Everyone, I’d like you to meet Jax. All 8 pounds, 15 ounces of him popped into the outside world at 10:27 p.m. on July 22, right on his due date.

Jax at hospital

Adam and I feel blessed beyond belief. As for Jax, well, I think we can sum things up in this way:


1. Eating

2. Pooping

3. Grunting loudly in his sleep at 12:00 a.m.

4. Eating some more

5. Pooping in the middle of a diaper change, while simultaneously spraying himself in the face

6. Grunting loudly in his sleep at 2:00 a.m. See also: 3:00 a.m., 4:00 a.m., infinity.


(After a brief episode of birth-weight loss, otherwise known as That Time the Pediatrician Threatened a Feeding Tube and I Sobbed and Felt Like a Monstrous Mothering Failure But Then All Was Fine 12 Hours Later So Screw You Medical Establishment and Yay for Monstrous Breasts, Jax has moved on up the scale to a whopping 9 pounds, 2 ounces. His thighs are even more rolly now, for the cuteness record. Plus he has a dimple in his elbow NOM NOM.)

And Aura? Well, I’d say she’s pretty thrilled. A little disappointed that Jax is not yet expressing her level of extreme pleasure with either the iPad or her approximate 4,849 Littlest Pet Shop toys, but eh. That’s what the third week of life is for, anyway.

You know what, friends?

Right now, life is good. Very, very good.

    Well, a huge congratulations to your family for your newest addition!

    Jax = Kickass name, but then again… you have Aura, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

    Wishing you the best!

    Hey, I like everything Jax likes (I’m counting snoring as grunting)! Except for no. 5–and who knows what the future will bring?

    Congratulations on a job well done. Or, more accurately, begun, I guess.

    Memorize this: air + penis = pee. So be prepared with a washcloth or next diaper or beach towel when you unfasten old diaper, open, and swiftly cover with next piece of cloth. Or you’ll get it in the face.

    Here’s one you’ll need, too: MAKE SURE IT’S POINTED DOWN BEFORE YOU SEAL THE DIAPER. At least once every bleary-eyed mom has diapered a penis in the up position, and had a screaming, soaked baby wake her 45 minutes later. Dry diaper, wet shirt.

    Those things are directional. Consider yourself warned.

    Look out for the phase when Aura figures out he’s not leaving and tries to remove him from the family herself. Sometimes when still a newborn, sometimes when the younger starts crawling, almost always when the younger starts walking. Consider yourself warned again.

    And congratulations.

    I am so full of joy for you I can’t even be snarky.

    Which may be the first time since ever.

    So congratulations on the good life, my friend.

    Ack! I leave the internet for a few weeks and look what happens YOU GO AND HAVE A BABY! Jax!! Look at that ear-to-ear on big sister. That smile looks like it hurts. Love it.

    The good news: they’re far enough apart in age that chances are good the novelty won’t wear off terribly soon. Two years later my 6 year old is still madly in love with her baby brother. I’ll keep you posted on when that changes. But in the meantime, you have 2 years, enjoy them!

    I find erecting a make shift tent in the living room and doing all nappy changes within the tent, as to not require mopping the light fixtures!

    Congratulations!!!! I’m totally late with this but since this blog post is still on top of your feed, I’d say I’m off the hook!

    Glad things are going smoothly, with the exception of the pee thing— don’t they make little penis hats for that?
