Sleep Feeding...

...or would that be breast walking? Either way, there was something weird going on last night. I went to sleep in my bed around 10:30 or something, and then the next thing I knew I was waking up on our couch from a totally sound sleep several hours later. Bundle was zonked out on my lap, and without sharing too many details, I'll just say that I had obviously been nursing in the recent past. Do I remember getting her up and going to the couch? Nope. Do I remember feeding her? Nope. Do I have any idea how long I was asleep there, my head tilted back, mouth open, snoring peacefully? Nope. It could have been 15 minutes, it could have been two hours. This is a little disconcerting. I wonder what else I can do in my sleep....

In other Bundle news, it turns out that my baby has alien poo. Not what you were expecting to read, eh? Well, you may remember in one of the Alien movies how alien blood, once spilt, just burns through layer after layer after layer of the space ship. Well, Bundle's poo pulled the same trick today. Now, my poor baby hadn't pooed at all in many days and she was so sad and uncomfortable and grumpy that I finally did something about it. (I am SURE these details are the reason anyone reads my blog, right? Want me to talk about barf next? Well maybe I will.) Anyway, the result was that my cute baby was lying there on my bed and managed to produce enough poo to go through her diaper, through her outfit, through a towel, through the duvet cover and through the comforter. It just kept going and going and going. And let me tell you, the return of my happy baby made the clean up worth it.

Ah, parenthood. Was that too much information?

That is too funny (and a little scary). I am not sure I am ready for this again.

We love those new hampshire dill pumpkins! They rock--and so does Troy's green thumb!

Wow. That was a lot of fun information. Thanks for saving the barf talk for another time. I am so jealous of your pumpkins. I am a plant killer. (There's those labels again.) I dream of one day having a fabulous vegetable garden. I have to believe that if I keep trying, maybe one day I will grow something.

Rach...thanks for posting TMI on your blog. It makes me not feel too bad for posting TMI on mine! Haha!
And yes, I've experienced the sleepfeeding sensation many times. I think you have to be a really heavy sleeper to not wake up through all of that.

Since I have been there myself (on the poo thing, not the sleep feeding), I totally understand. There just isn't a time in life where we are more focused on bodily functions of others as when we have babies.

I have been there! Thanks for always putting a positive and humorous spin on the things that really drive me nuts!
