I've never been around boy babies. I mean when I worked in childcare I worked as the preschool teacher so I didn't deal much with the infants. So Maddux is one of the first babies that I've actually "cared" for.
Over the past few weeks Jayce & I have really wondered if Maddux was circumsized right....
It seems he still has a lot of extra skin so we had planned on asking about it at his 4 month appt in just 2 short weeks.
But the other day (Monday) I was getting Maddux out of the bath & I brought him to his changing table laid him down & prepared to put a diaper on him....all of the sudden I looked down to find just skin... my instant thought was panic-- I thought I needed to get him to the emergency room I literally thought he lost his penis. I then began to take a picture so I could send to my Hubs-- after I tried calling him with no answer. Well as I'm freaking out I thought I needed to try & find this.... yes this is a little detailed but I began just poking on his skin above where his penis is & finally out it popped! I couldn't believe my eyes... I had no idea that a penis could dissappear.
Maddux got his pictures taken that day & for most of them he was nude & this happened at least 3 more times that day so me being the paranoid mama that I am I called the doc to talk to the nurse I explained that my son kept losing his penis & what not... I told her I probably sounded crazy but I was concerned & needed to know why this was happening. She simply told me it was normal. (Good to know)
This really bothered me though I was so concerned & still keep a close eye on things down there. I'm counting down the days to his appointment to find out if everything still looks good down there!
I know I probably just sound crazy & probably a little perverted but this really happened....
oh the joys of parenting boys.
I guess there is a first time for everything right???
I will have to write this one down in his baby book... He'll love this story 20 years from now right ;)
