As I pulled down her pants carefully, I noticed that the outside of her diaper was covered in it, as were her little legs, and now socks as I continued to pull the pants down. She didn't mind, and was in fact happy to have them off and started joyfully kicking her legs (getting it on my shirt, on her changing pad and the restaurant changing table). It was a complete mess, and I didn't know where to start. I tore the diaper off and noticed that nothing was even in the diaper...it somehow bypassed it and went straight out the side. I cleaned her up well, using half of the wipes. I stuffed her poopy pants into a baggie (thank goodness I had one in her diaper bag), and started rummaging through her bag for a diaper. I opened up a little pouch where I keep the diapers and it was EMPTY! Can you believe it?! I couldn't, so I kept digging through her bag thinking that maybe one fell out in the bag. As I realized that I was wrong and that I didn't have a diaper, I started to improvise. I used one of her burp clothes as a temporary diaper (keep in mind I did not have pins to secure it, nor a plastic cover to really protect her), and pulled on a new pair of pants. I rushed out to Steve (who was trying to be patient since we were in there forever) and told him the story.
We prayed that she wouldn't tee-tee and hightailed it to the grocery store where we could buy a real diaper. Steve went in to change her, and of course she had and was already soaked through her new pair of pants. He put the diaper on her, covered her with a blanket and told me to hurry as we shopped. When we got home, we gave her a warm bath and cleaned her up. I really don't think she knew any different, but I sure learned my lesson...check the diaper bag before leaving!

This last video is at the end of class when she is just kicking her legs and enjoying the water. I think she liked floating best. We go back every week for the next five weeks, so stay tuned for more updates on our little mermaid.
the living room, from the entrance
wet bar b/tw dining room & kitchen (shelves on both sides)
kitchen w/ nook and deck off the back
tub & shower in master bath (shower has 3 shower heads!)
Also on main level is the laundry room, Bennett's room & bath, and a guest bath. Then upstairs we have two more bedrooms with baths and a media room and half bath. There is an additional laundry room upstairs, but we have converted it to our temporary office for now. The house is just perfect for us, and now big enough for us to entertain comfortably and have house guests. So for those of you out of town...please come visit us soon!
