Daddy dresses me in onesies. It doesn’t matter which onesies, if they are nice ones or sleep ones. He typically avoids the Winnie the Pooh onesies, and if he puts socks on my feet, they don’t always match my onesie. Same goes with pants. He even put the pants on my head at times! Mommy looks for the cutest possible outfit that I can fit into. Sometimes, she changes my outfit three times before deciding on one. And, she’s really picky about if the onesie I’m wearing is considered a “sleep onesie” or a “cute onesie.” I, of course know, that I look cute in ALL onesies, so I don’t know why she cares so much!
Daddy likes to play really fun games with me that Mommy doesn’t like. For example, Daddy likes to balance me on his hand in upright position and walk around the room. I think it’s a blast! Sometimes I get so excited I flex my back and kick out my legs, and Daddy has to hurry and catch me so I don’t fall to the ground.
When Daddy is feeding me, he will wipe up my messes with anything he can find handy, whether it’s a blanket, his shirt, or even a sock. Mommy typically puts a bib on me beforehand and then brings an extra burp cloth for bigger messes.
Mommy loves to change my diaper – it’s one of our favorite play times together. She sings the ABC’s to me and gives me Zerberts on my belly. And when she takes my dirty diaper off, she yells “freedom” really loud and I get excited and kick my legs because the fresh air feels really good. Daddy has a different process. If I have a poopy diaper, he takes one of my spare onesies and buttons it around his face in a ninja-style mask to block the smell so he doesn’t throw up on me (even though I’ve thrown up on him many times!). Then, he always takes the new clean diaper and lets me wear it on my head as a hat. I usually try to eat it, but I don’t get very far till he takes it from me to put on my bottom.
But even though Mommy & Daddy do things differently, I love them just the same. They are my favorite parents!
