Daily Totals

11 The number of hours I worked today, making today the longest I’ve ever been away from Natalie. Part-time is over until the end of the school year. Sigh.

8 The number of days left in the school year.

5,000 (give or take) The number of kisses I gave Natalie upon reunification. Poor kid.

1 The number of times she rolled over (!) while I was gone. Yep. Jen put her down on her stomach and she immediately flipped over to her back. We’re sure she has no clue what she did or how, and aren’t anticipating a repeat anytime soon, but yikes.

2 The number of times I’ve hopefully put her on her tummy this evening.

0 The number of times she’s actually done the trick since.

3 The number of ounces Jen thought Natalie had gained in the last week.

9 The number of ounces she actually DID gain.

45 The number of minutes of spitting up that followed Jen’s panicked encouragement to eat more.

1 Number of massive poopsplosions. (she saved THAT for after I got home)

2 Number of moms required to deal with said poopsplosion.

5 Number of large cloth wipes used in process.

2 Number of baths the kid has had today.

1 Number of birth certificates (with correct name) picked up today!

At least 3 Number of hours Jen expects to spend at SSA tomorrow trying to get her a Social Security card. Wish her luck!


  1. 2 – the number of clever parents for 1 very very lucky named, insured and loved girl

  2. Yay for correct birth certificates! Good luck with the Social Security card.

  3. Luck!

  4. good luck! with the s.s. card
    hugs to you all!!!

  5. Sounds like things are well, but it must be hard to be away from her during the day. Yay for summer! Don’t be surprised if she does roll from tummy to back again soon. Some babies do that pretty early on, so keep your camera close by! Ours did, and they haven’t been particularly advanced with their milestones in general. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

  6. yea for the birth certificate!

  7. Yeah for birth certificate! Not yeah for poopsplosions! I think all babies really need two mommies to deal with those. My favorite instance is when I had Seph in her little organic cotton sling and she pooped in it while I was in line at the store…and got my sunglasses, cell phone and car keys at the same time. (She was small, everything fit in there with her!) Hang in there, she’ll be rolling over again real soon!
