Hello Baby Boy

Here he is, Baby O, our last bio-baby.  He came earthside November 11th, just before the stroke of midnight.  He's had a little more trouble breastfeeding than Adventure Girl did, but we've stuck with it.  He's a snuggler and quickly earned the nickname "Teddybear".

The matriarch of 'Table for Eight' sat in on the birth.  I'm a very private person and had my doubts about even my best friend being in the room, but I haven't regretted it for a second.  She cheered me on (Papa J is more of the hold-your-hand-silently-while-you-scream-breath-and-push type), cried tears of joy, and took photos for us.  I love her.

Baby O had some jaundice issues, as some breastfed babies do, and gave me a scare on day two.  An overnight with some bili-lights made him feel better.

He's almost 4 months now and is teething, playing with toys, and loves to sit up propped.

Doodle Bug is older with this baby and has no fears about holding, calming, and feeding his baby brother.  Adventure Girl brings him toys and kisses his head all day. I love my family.

  1. Such a beautiful baby! Very happy to hear that you and family are doing well. I've missed you over the last several months, but assumed that you were busy. Glad to see a blog update. Congratulations on the precious addition, he's beautiful.

    1. Thank you! I hope to get this blog whipped back into shape over the month of March. I was so busy I even let my menu subscription get canceled. I pulled up my page and all of my navigation had disappeared. Crazy stuff happens when you're wrapped up with a newborn.

  2. I've missed you, too, but you've got more important things to do, obviously. Congratulations to all for the new baby!

    1. He's a happy distraction. Haha. I'm slowly getting back to the grindstone.
