10 Days and Counting

Andrew is ten days old! Yeah for the little guy... I'm sure it's been a shock to get used to our crazy world here, but he is hanging in there and doing great. Emma and Sarah are still lovin' on him, and Sarah now affectionately refers to him as "my baby." At first I thought she was talking about one of her dolls, but I guess Andrew is her own personal baby.

It has been really fun to switch over to the boy side of babies. There are all sorts of fun things to consider - from the cute blue clothes to the diaper adventures. Yesterday, he had a weight check (he's back up to his birth weight and more) and he peed all over the scale and then 30 seconds later he peed on the patient table and even hit the door in the process. There was a huge puddle on the floor. Needless to say, I was ready to get out of there after all of that fun!!

Andrew looks so much like Dennis!

You've gotta love the boys and their rainbow pee adventures!! Zack would do that every time we took his diaper off. You learn quickly to come prepared with a cloth of some kind to protect yourself!! :)

Can't wait to see him. Hope you guys are adjusting and doing well.

A lot of you have asked... I am feeling really good! Andrew is a good baby, and I think after three kids you just realize that babies are going to cry sometimes and it's OKAY!

Some parts of the day can be a little overwhelming when all three need some cuddle time at the same time, but it makes me smile! I was sitting the other day with both Emma and Andrew both struggling to get my full attention, and I thought, "I'm so happy to be their mom!" I wouldn't change anything.

You are such a fantastic mom! I just love little boys! I am glad you are feeling good and wish I could hold little Andrew. Hang in there I remember those sleepless nights all too well.

He's a cutie! Okay, so they have these things now called wee wee teepees. They are hilarious. You are supposed to put them over their weewee when you change their diaper so they don't get you! Never used them, but how funny. We were squirted in the face many a time!

He is such a handsome little guy. I love the pictures of him with the girls. I'm sure they are such good helpers. I hope that you are feeling well.
