My eyes slowly open and straightaway I realize I’m lying in my crib. I sit up and yawn whilst hissing echoes around me. I glance down to my purple T-shirt and Pampers Cruisers diaper hugging my waist. I giggle as I trace the multicolored circles and trace my finger down the yellow-green wetness indicator.

I turn toward the foot of my crib and spot Daddy sleeping in my rocking chair resting in front of my toy chest. “Daddy.” I giggle as I stand up in my crib and waddle toward the foot to watch his chest slowly rise and fall with his snoring. My ears flicker and the hissing dies down as I turn toward my open doorway to see Brian fully dressed in a green sweater, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. “Brian…”

Brian stops at my door and walks into my bedroom, “Good morning, Stacey.” Brian stops at my crib while I waddle over to the right-hand bars, “I was just about to head out for a walk before heading out for the day. I figured you and Dad could use some time together and I could head into the library to get some reading done.”

“Okay.” I turn back to Daddy and smile, “Imma wake up, Daddy!”

Brian pats my diapered bottom and chuckles as he lifts me out of my crib, “Lemme help you with that.” Brian sets me on my feet in front of my crib and kneels to kiss my forehead, “Love you, Stacey.”

I smile toward Brian and giggle as I boop his nose, “Boop. I love you too, Brian.” I yawn and rub my eyes as I banish my sleepiness from me. When I fully open my eyes, Brian is gone. I turn toward Daddy and waddle over to the rocking chair, “Daaaady…” I rest my hands on Daddy’s right leg and jump toward him.

I giggle when I land on his belly and smile toward him while he giggles, but keeps his eyes closed. “Daddy!” I stand up in his lap and turn to him whilst hissing echoes around me, “Daddy! Daddy wake up!” I poke Daddy’s nose and giggle when he opens his eyes, “DADDY!” I smile wide and wrap my arms around his neck whilst kissing his cheek, “Daddy’s face is scruffy!”

Brendan chuckles as he returns my hug whilst patting my diapered bottom, “And Little Boy needs a diaper change.” Brendan rises from the chair and turns to the clock above my doorway…

“A certain toddler’s up early.” Brendan lays me down on my changing table and pokes my belly.

I giggle and kick my legs while Daddy grabs a fresh diaper, wipes, and powder from the stack at the right side of the changing table, “Yeppers! Earlier the better so Daddy and me can play lots and lots!”

Brendan smiles as he unfastens my wet diaper and lifts my legs so he can slide it away, “I can’t help but agree, Stacey.” He holds my legs with his left hand and works on getting me dry with his right. “So, what do you want to do today, Little Buddy?”

I giggle as Daddy lowers my legs so he can roll my old diaper into a ball and tape it shut, “Well, breakfast first and then…then…we can fingerpaint and go to the park so you can push me on the swings. Then…” I yawn as Daddy powders my uplifted bottom, “I dunno what else.”

Brendan nods as he sets the baby powder down and grabs the fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper to flick unfolded, “Sounds like you’ve got a big plan for today.” Brendan slides the fresh diaper under my bottom and lowers my legs so he can bring the multicolored circle shell up to my belly, “Daddy didn’t bring any fingerpaints with him though.”

“You didn’t?” I blink twice and stare at Daddy confused as he tapes the new diaper snug around my waist. I sit up on the changing table and scoot closer to Daddy whilst my fresh Pampers crinkle, “Does that mean we gotta go shopping too?”

Brendan lifts me into his arms and boops my nose, “I guess so.” He walks toward the bathroom and sets me on my feet in front of the tub. He turns toward the sink and begins washing his hands. “Have you decided what you want for breakfast, Little Boy of Mine?”

I giggle and waddle over to Daddy so I can wrap my arms around his waist while he dries his hands, “Sausage Links, Waffles, and babas of orange soda!” I giggle as I rest my head in his lower back and smile, “I-wanna-help-Daddy-make-breakfast.”

Brendan chuckles as he peels my hands off his waist and turns to kneel in front of his adorable little boy, “What did you say, Silly? Daddy couldn’t hear you.”

I giggle and smile showing off my baby teeth, “I wanna help you make breakfast, Daddy!”

Brendan ruffles my hair, “Alright.” and walks toward the kitchen. “Well come on, Baby Boy. Daddy’s gonna need help making breakfast.”

I giggle and waddle-run toward the kitchen, “YAY!” I stop in front of the fridge and pull the freezer open, “Waffles!” I pull out a box of Eggo waffles and set them on the counter to the right of the fridge.

Brendan ruffles my hair, “Good job, Stacey. Now where are the sausage links?”

I glance down at the open freezer and don’t see the box. I shut the freezer and open the right fridge door where I spot the box of Jimmy Dean’s Sausage Links. I turn to Daddy with a big smile as I hold the box to my chest, “Found them, Daddy!”

Brendan ruffles my hair, “Good job, Stacey. Now I’ll cook the sausage and you can put the waffles in the toaster.”

I waddle over to the toaster and yawn, “How many, Daddy?”

Brendan hums as he begins frying up the remaining ten sausage links, “Four for each of us.”

I smile and place four in the toaster, “Okay, Daddy!” I sway back and forth on my feet as I watch the toaster with its glowing red heat elements toasting the waffles.

Brendan smiles as he watches me pull the freshly toasted waffles from the toaster and place them on a giant plate next to the toaster. He turns to his skillet and finishes frying the sausage links. “So, what do you want to drink?”

I giggle as I waddle over to the fridge and pull out a baby bottle of strawberry lemonade, “I got what I want, Daddy!” I turn to him and smile as I shake my bottle, “Heee…”

Brendan turns to me with a smile, “Good.” and returns to the skillet to move the sausage links to a plate on the counter next to the stove. “Alrighty, we’re ready for breakfast.” Brendan carries the sausage link plate toward the dining room table and turns to see me waddling over to him with the plate of waffles, “Good job, Stacey. They’re all golden brown.”

I nod as I set the waffle plate next to the sausage link plate and sit down to the right of the plates of breakfast. I lick my lips as Daddy walks over with two small saucers, forks, knives, and a bottle of maple syrup. I swing my legs and my Pampers crinkle as Daddy sets a plate in front of me, “Thankies, Daddy!” I smile as I grab a waffle and three sausage links.

After slathering my waffle with maple syrup, I cut it up into small rectangles and begin eating it along with my sausage links.

Brendan smiles as he watches me devour my breakfast while my face becomes a syrupy mess. I’m glad my little boy is enjoying his breakfast.

I giggle as the baby wipe sails across my face, cleaning off the syrup that once resided there. Once I can see Daddy’s face again, I smile and boop his nose, “Thankies, Daddy!”

Brendan boops my nose and walks into the kitchen to toss the baby wipe in the trash. He returns with my diaper bag over his shoulder and kneels to boop my nose, “Ready to head out?”

I jump down from my chair and nod, “Yush, Daddy!” I glance down to my bare feet and giggle as I wiggle my toes, “I need my shoes, Daddy!” I slide onto my diapered bottom and smile toward Daddy.”

“I’ll get them, Silly Boy. Wait here.” Brendan walks back into my bedroom and grabs my black tennis shoes with the white bottom stripe. He returns to me and kneels to slide my socks onto my feet. “You want to do fingerpainting, and what else today?”

I smile toward Daddy as he slides my shoes on my feet and starts tying the right shoe, “Well…Fingerpaints and swings at the park and…” I rub my chin, “I dunno what else yet.”

Brendan chuckles as he ties my left shoe and lifts me to my feet, “All tied up.” He pats my diapered bottom and walks toward the door of the apartment, “Well come on, the Arts & Craft store awaits.”

“Yay!” I waddle-run after Daddy whilst crinkling through the entire journey.

Location: Hobby Lobby, Kirkwood, Missouri, United States of America

I smile toward Daddy as I waddle through the front door and find cash registers to my left. To my right rest ten different aisles containing arts and crafts supplies. “This is really cool, Daddy!”

Brendan ruffles my hair and darts his eyes across the aisles, “Daddy’s glad you think so.”

……

I giggle as I waddle past aisle after aisle in search of the fingerpaints. I smile when I stop in front of Aisle 7: KIDS and dart my eyes across the shelves of wooden blocks, xylophones, and diecast metal car kits. “AHA!” I pick up a rectangular fingerpaint set containing red, blue, green, and yellow paints. “DADDY! DADDY! DADDY!”

I waddle-run out of the aisle and smile toward Daddy walking over to me, “I found them, Daddy!”

Brendan kneels and ruffles my hair, “Alrighty, let’s go check out.” Brendan walks toward the cash registers and lifts me onto the counter of register of 7, “Just the fingerpaints please?”

The female cashier smiles at me and scans the barcode of the fingerpaints, “Well aren’t you just a cute little boy.”

I giggle at the cashier’s comment and smile, showing off all my baby teeth, “Thankies.” I turn toward Daddy as he pays the cashier for the fingerpaints, “I’m so excited, Daddy!”

Brendan sets the bag in my diaper bag and lifts me into his arms, “Yep, let’s head home and get to fingerpainting then.”

“YAY!” I giggle as I wrap my arms around Daddy’s neck as he carries me out of the Hobby Lobby.

I giggle as Daddy sets me on my feet in the middle of the living room and walks toward the kitchen, “Daddy, whatcha doing now?” I turn toward my diaper bag sitting in front of the couch and kneel to pull out the fingerpaints.

Brendan walks over to me with tons of paper towel rolls in his arms, “I was just getting paper towel to lay down so we don’t get the floor dirty.”

I yawn as I slide onto my diapered bottom and watch as Daddy lays paper towel down around me. I giggle as I open the fingerpaints and turn to the paper towel, “Daddy?”

Brendan kneels to my left and ruffles my hair, “Yes, Baby Boy?”

I dip my right index finger into the blue fingerpaint and giggle at the cool gooiness caressing my finger. I reach toward Daddy and poke his nose with the fingerpaint, “Heee…I need something to paint on. Unless you want me to paint you, Daddy! Heee…”

Brendan chuckles at my silliness, “I’ll get the baby some paper then.” and walks toward my bedroom to grab some printer paper. He returns moments later and giggles at the yellow paint dots covering my face. He kneels in front of me with the paper and chuckles as I paint blue dinos on my diaper with my right index finger, “Stacey…”

I glance up from my diaper fingerpainting and smile at Daddy, “Yes, Daddy?”

Brendan pushes the paper in front of me, “I got you some paper so you don’t paint yourself, Silly Baby Boy.”

I giggle and smile as I take one of the pages, “Thankies, Daddy!”

……

My eyes blink slowly as I drag my right index finger across the page in an attempt to finish off my drawing of Daddy and me riding a blue dinosaur. I yawn and giggle as I scan the blue and green fingerpaint decorating my hands, “Daaadddy…”

Brendan lifts his eyes from the couch and chuckles at my paint covered hands, “Yes, Little Painter?” Brendan grabs some baby wipes from my diaper bag and makes short work of cleaning my hands, “Silly Baby got lots of paint on his hands.”

Brendan chuckles as he scans the paint dotting across my face, shirt, the Pampers Cruisers diaper hugging my waist, and even the scattered baby bottles surrounding my fingerpainting area, “You got paints everywhere, Little Stacey.” Brendan pats my diapered bottom and smiles when I turn to pick up my dry pages, “What did you paint for Daddy?”

I yawn as I set the paintings in his lap, “I made these, Daddy!”

Brendan hears me yawn again and he glances toward the clock above the TV…

“I think my baby boy might be ready for a nap.” Brendan smiles as he scans the papers in his lap. The first page is of him and his baby boy riding a dinosaur, the second page is of him and his baby boy watching a night sky, and the last page is of his little boy holding a heart with I LOVE MY DADDY above the adorable painting. “These are adorable, Stacey.”

I rub my eyes as I crash-land on my diapered bottom, “Really, Daddy?” I giggle as I rise to my feet and waddle over to rest my hands on Daddy’s leg whilst the bottles I had earlier begin leaving my body. “You really love them, Daddy?”

Brendan rises with the paintings, “I do. I think they belong on the fridge.” and heads toward the fridge to post them. He turns from the kitchen to see me waddling over to him. Brendan kneels with open arms and smiles when I wrap my arms around his neck, “Daddy loves his baby boy.”

I giggle as I snuggle with Daddy whilst he delivers loving pats to my diapered bottom, “I love you too, Daddy!”

Brendan brings me out of the hug and ruffles my hair, “What does my baby boy want to do now?”

I yawn and rub my eyes, “Can I nap now, Daddy? Fingerpaints took lots outta me. Umm…” I dart my eyes around the living room whilst hissing echoes around me and changes my Pampers Cruisers diaper’s wetness indicator from green to yellow-green by the time it fades. “Can I nap with you holding me, Daddy?”

Brendan smiles as he lifts me into his arms and cradles me, “Like this, Stacey?”

I smile toward Daddy and swing my legs, “Yush pwease?” I turn toward the living room wall and notice the TV passing me by slowly, “Daddy where we goin’?”

Brendan chuckles as he rests me against his chest and pats my diapered bottom, “Getting you a dry diaper, Baby Boy.” Brendan enters my bedroom and lays me down on my changing table.

I squirm on the changing table and giggle as I watch Daddy grab a fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper, wipes, and powder, “Daddy?”

Brendan smiles down at me as he unfastens my wet diaper and lifts my legs to slide it away, “Yes, Baby Boy?” Brendan hums as he works on getting me dry.

I giggle and poke Daddy’s nose as he lowers my legs, “I love you, Daddy! That’s all. You don’t like fingerpaints do you?” I poke his nose again while he rolls my old diaper into a ball and tapes it shut.

Brendan lifts my legs with his left hand and powders my uplifted bottom with his right hand, “What makes you say that?”

I pout toward Daddy as he slides the fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper under my bottom, “Cause you didn’t play with me.”

Brendan brings the left wing of my new diaper toward the picture strip and tapes it down, “You didn’t ask Daddy. You were so focused on your painting that Daddy didn’t want to interrupt you.”

“Oh.’’ I glance down to the Pampers Cruisers diaper freshly taped around my waist and kick my legs allowing the fresh diaper to crinkle, “Thankies for the changies, Daddy!”

Brendan pokes my belly and smiles as he lifts me into his arms, “You’re welcome, Stacey.” He pats my freshly diapered bottom as he carries me out of my bedroom. “Now you said you wanted to nap with Daddy?”

I yawn as I rest my head on Daddy’s shoulder, “Uh huhs.” I lift my head seconds after Daddy sits down on the living room couch. I stand up in his lap and yawn, “Daddy?”

Brendan ruffles my hair and pats my bottom, “Yes, Baby Boy?”

“You won’t leave…” I squat as I lower myself into Daddy’s lap, “will you?”

Brendan shakes his head as he watches me lay my head on his chest and lie down belly first against his belly, “Daddy will be right here with his little boy.” Brendan ruffles my hair and pats my bottom, “I promise.”

I smile toward Daddy, “Thankies, Daddy!” With another yawn, my eyes droop and I fall into a peaceful nap.

Brendan smiles as he gently caresses my hair and pats my bottom to keep me in my peaceful sleep, “Such a precious little boy Daddy has. Sleep well, Stacey.”
