ANYWAY...it's been a crazy 3.5 weeks! Our little guy is very sweet, but I think he has a gassy tummy pretty often. He wants to be carried/close to me at all times, pretty much. Oh well. Given that he's my third, I know how fast this time goes, and before I know it he'll be crawling, talking, making messes everywhere etc, so holding him close to me for a bit longer will have to be tolerated! My back will get quite strong :-)
These pictures here on the couch are of the girls and baby shortly after we came home from the hospital. Greta learned quickly how to give him "pinky time" (let him suck on her pinky to soothe him) and she is quite the little mother! First thing every single morning the girls run into our room, usually Greta first, and find "baby guy" in our bed, assess whether or not he's awake, give him tons of kisses either way, and ooh and aah over him incessantly. They...well, especially Greta, cover him with kisses many times a day!!
Hosea really did not like his first bath. Also, he did not like his first few diaper changes. He screamed his head off for these occasions. Now, thankfully, he tolerates them both a bit better. It's hard to get used to life on the outside!
