Many Firsts

Since Kinsley has arrived, she has had many firsts. Some not-so-fun firsts include our first projectile poop which shot an amazing three feet from anus to wall and guest bed... and our first projectile vomit which shot the entire length of her body (she was laying on my legs with head on knees and I had spit up in my belly button, down my leg, on the couch, on the floor and she was also quite saturated...)

Other firsts have been much more exciting. We've taken our first walk in the Moby wrap and in the stroller...

Thanks to my grandparents Jarred and I have taken our first date night as parents :-) I hadn't been away from Kinsley yet and my grandparents graciously offered to come up for the afternoon/evening and watch Kinsley so we could go to dinner. We went to Paradise Bakery and Cafe (which is the same as Panera Bread Co.) They have one of my fave sandwiches (and I of course couldn't eat it while I was preggers due to listeria in lunch meat...) so I requested we go there!

And, we took our first outing as a family of three... we went to church!! It was wonderful to get out and about and especially to go to church! Kinsley even got all dressed up in her cheetah dress!
This week we will have another first...mommy will have to go to work :-/ You see, the biggest part of the Management rotation in the internship is planning "Special Day" in which the interns are literally in charge of every aspect of the cafeteria for the day and we had to plan a special/new menu and decorate and the whole shabang. I've obviously missed out on a large portion of that but I wanted to help with the last minute things as much as possible so I told the interns I would come in to help out. Welp, I report for duty at 6 a.m. on Wednesday. So far, I haven't done too much physical activity because when I stand for very long it feels like my vag is going to just fall out of me. So I'm a little anxious for my stamina to hold up and I'm of course anxious to leave baby girl and to feel like I'm making Jarred bare too much of the responsibility in watching her. However, God has been so good and gracious to us! We were really starting to feel the exhaustion (me especially since I maybe got 6 hours of sleep total while in the hospital) but Kinsley has done just wonderfully the last two nights. We are so thankful for answered prayers for rest and rejuvenation! So that makes me feel a bit better about leaving them, but I'm still anxious.


  1. I love the use of several words in this post, they include: anus, saturated and vag. I think that makes me a 13 year old boy.
