A rediscovered perfume

Perfume: fill or impregnate with an odor

I think I’m getting used to wearing my new scent. I put it away for about 4 years, but have recently taken it out again. I can’t say it’s my favorite. Ava disagrees with me, she thinks I love it. On Sunday morning after I finished feeding her she projectile vomited all over me. I was just thankful it was before my shower. The funny thing was, an hour later as we were getting ready to walk out the door to church I kept smelling it. I mentioned to Jerem that I just felt like I smelled like sour milk and I couldn’t seem to get rid of it. He suggested using REAL perfume and maybe that would help. I did, and hoped that it was just me that noticed the rancid odor.

We got to church, I went and fed Ava. Went back upstairs and sat down, she spit up all over me. Jerem leaned over trying to contain his smile and chuckling and just said, “you poor woman”.

I don’t think I mind though. I’ve discovered a little sour milk smell and feeling somewhat disheveled 80 no 95% of the time is worth it for all the little smiles and coos and the privilege to raise another child for the Lord.

I love your attitude! Most of us older moms would have to admit me miss that stage, sour milk and all. It is the aroma of baby- and that is always good. With Daniel, I learned to always carry an extra shirt in my diaper bag. He was MR. Projectile!

What a sweet blog. I love the smell of a nursing baby...not so much the sour milk smell but the other scent they seem to have. Enjoy your little one.

I got spewed upon Christmas Eve- hair and makeup and real clothes on and all. I mean all down my shoulder and hair soaked. Don't think I minded much either, just cleaned up alittle. Now Jared on the other hand, I think it's his biggest fear while holding Nolan. ;)

Almost makes me want another little one, but then again I was a sorta witness to Jill's incident, and altough I do miss and loved that stage.... I think I am over it, unless the Lord has other plans for me! ;)
