Preparing For The Blowout!


***Consider this your warning - if you have a weak or sensitive stomach read no further!  This post is messy=)***

The week before we moved to Raleigh I noticed that I had not changed a poopie diaper in almost a week.  I thought poor little Cai's tummy must just be out of wack because of the move.  Every nursery or place I'd drop him off at would tell me that "We thought for sure he had a dirty diaper and checked him several times but there was nothing.  He just smelled SO bad!"  Inside I was thinking to myself, just look who his daddy is though;)  Don't tell Josh I just said that, HA!  

Well, sure enough on Saturday afternoon (loading day) he had a massive blowout!  Thank you G-daddy (my dad) for changing that one.  It was so funny...for the next several hours Cai was SO content and it was like he just couldn't stop smiling.  I'm sure that one felt good.

Fast forward a week later with no poopies.  The nursery workers are complaining of this horrendous stench coming from this sweet little bundle and I know we are in for a doozie!

I was preparing dinner for our family of 5 children and 4 adults (don't worry, Jenn and I took turns cooking for this crew) when I smelled it!  I looked down at the bouncy seat where Cai was staring into outer space with an intent look on his face and realized that it was time.  Not 2 minutes later I looked back at him and IT was coming out from every imaginable angle.  I just stood there not knowing which action to take.  

After that episode he waited until the following Monday for another poopie escapade.  I have since dubbed Mondays as "Poopie Mondays".

I am a little worried this week though.  Monday has come and gone and it is now Wednesday.  We are about to embark on a road trip to VA and Cai has yet to have his weekly blowout.  

We are heading out prepared with a waterproof pad in his car seat and easily accessible wipes, diapers and vomit bag (when the smell begins to make it's way to the front of the car)=)

Side Note:  He isn't constipated, he just doesn't go.  We've tried a little apple juice to no avail.  Any ideas?
