1 Month Old

Sorry I have taken so long to update. You'd never guess that a baby who sleeps 12-18 hours a day could take up so much time. I haven't been really good even at taking pictures, but I'll try to be better in the future.

This is Scott at 9 days, sporting a beautifully crocheted blanket made by his Aunt Jessica. Thank you!

Here he is at 12 days--he loves to sleep with his hands on his face. We like to pretend that he's smelling something stinky, but probably not.
17 days--you can see the blanket hasn't left the bouncy chair... He loves to move his arms around! If he's awake, his arms are constantly in motion. And sometimes his legs, too.
Not sure what he's doing here, but it's cute!
18 days--his first real bath! And he hasn't had one since... He just doesn't get very dirty. Is it bad that he's only had one real bath since he was born?
29 days--Today.

Happy Halloween! The shirt is too big, but that's the way it goes. The shirt is a gift from his Nana and Papa. The hat and socks are from a family friend, Tammy. The pants are preemie size--they're too short, and the waist is too big... ah well.
And there you have it! A whole month has passed. He is probably just a little taller, and he weighs a little over 8 lbs by now, I think. He was 7lbs 6oz when I took him to the doctor over a week ago, so there ya go! Things are going well. I'm learning to deal with little sleep, and even when he's crying, I still think he's very cute, so that's a good sign :) Thanks to everyone for your love and support and oohs and aahs.

1 Week

I thought I'd continue with the belly pictures... Here we are 1 week post partum.

Here's us at the hospital--day 3, I think
Do you think the carseat is big enough for him?
I realized we were all still wearing our bracelets after being home almost two full days. Had to take a picture so we could cut them off :)
This is just for a size comparison. iPhone on the left, universal remote on the right. He's such a little dude.

Scott Simon

So, I had my baby! He was 6lbs. 6oz., 19.5 inches long. I just looked at the clock and it's 6:33pm! So, little Scotty (Scottie? I haven't decided) is now officially 3 days old. We should totally have cupcakes or something...
Sorry it has taken me so long to post, but we got a computer virus on our laptop (now our only computer--see Oregon Trail post) at the hospital because our antivirus software ran out and we forgot to renew it. Plus, the hospital wireless was an unsecure network. Anyway, Matt's been spending the last few days making our computer healthy again, so again, I'm sorry for the delay.
So, I haven't downloaded pictures from my camera yet because we're still working with the virus, and some amazing people cleaned my house (thanks Mom and Tammy!) and I'm not sure where the cable I need is, but I do have a few pictures that my dad sent and one from Matt's cell phone, so I'll post those for now to satisfy the masses.
Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes. We couldn't be more thrilled with our little boy. He gets cuter by the second.
