The smile on Carly's face (above) was soon replaced by a frown as the night wore on. Just as she sat down to supper and took a bite, the baby cried... she tried to feed him... not what he wanted... so she changed him... and he went back to sleep.... just as she finised eating he cried again.. this time he needed to eat. This went on all evening long... and it was funny to watch as she tried to decide what he needed. These babies even BURP! But he did "sleep" from 9:30 to 3:30, and after eating and being changed, was still asleep when Carly got up at 6:45.
Just as Carly was leaving for school, Paxton woke up again... he had slept the entire time she got ready for school, which was a good thing, and he was set to "turn off" at 8:00 AM, so out the door she went at 7:45... and he cried. So there she was... out on the driveway all hunkered down over this doll changing its diaper right out in the cold.... hmmm.... not a "real" baby way to deal with it. The last thing I heard her say was... "He better not cry when I'm driving to school cause I'm gonna be late and I don't have TIME to feed him." AHHHHH.... the words of a true mom! I myself have uttered those exact words on many occasions as I have loaded up a baby in the car and headed to work.... brought tears to my eyes... oh yes... tears of laughter.
I will almost bet that as she drags her tired body to church tonight she'll be thankful that she didn't go ahead and sign up to have this baby all weekend long as she originally wanted to... and I think that she'll have alot more empathy for those new moms who bring their babies to the nursery on Sunday morning.
