That's me. And Kurt. And hopefully NOT Trevor.

He was circumcised yesterday.

Evan was done in the hospital while both him and I were still dazed and confused from the delivery and it just didn't seem like that big a deal. This waiting 2 weeks and doing it at the dr. office is just not right. They took him in another room because they don't let parents be present and he screamed the whole time.


True, he was hungry (he couldn't eat 1 hour before the procedure and when I tried to feed him 1 1/2 hours before the procedure, he wouldn't eat. So by the time we got to the drs., he decided he was hungry). Hopefully most of his screaming was from that but to sit there and listen to him cry like that and not know if he was hurting or just hungry and not being able to do anything was AWFUL!

I started crying and Kurt offered to go into the other room but I didn't want him to startle the dr. by him bursting into the room so we just sat, listened, and waited. Luckily it wasn't too long but still - AWFUL! He was fussy the rest of the night, poor baby, but today seems to be just fine.

Kurt and I? Ya, we're still not fine. Apparently Trevor is tougher than us. I really hope it is rougher on the parents than the baby.

So at his appointment he was 9 pounds 10 ounces! Man, this boy is growing like crazy. And he should be because he eats like a horse. I swear he was born ready for meat and potatoes. He chows!

He is such a good baby. As long as that tummy is full, he is a happy camper. The last 2 days he has done nothing but eat and sleep so I am sure he is going to take off on another growth spurt. He is already outgrowing his clothes. It is just happening too fast!

That is one thing I like about going overdue - it delays the start of the baby clock. Once they are born, they start changing and growing up way too fast. As long as I am pregnant I know that clock hasn't started yet. Once it does, it just doesn't stop.

Apparently one of the kids got ahold of the camera in the back seat because I have about 10-15 of these:
Hailey loves to hold him and is constantly asking. She does really good with him too.

Always sleeping.
Kayla loves to hold him too. They are TV buddies.
I tried to set up a "photo studio" to take pictures for Trevor's birth announcements. This picture just about sums up how it went.
He got hungry again so we stopped and fed him and tried again.

I think I got some cute ones so now I just need to spend some time trying to decide which one to use. "Time" being the key word there. =)

I wonder what he is thinking here:
Probably something like: "Guys, I am trying to sleep over here!"

Such a sweetie!
I am bouncing back the fastest with this baby. Not sure why but I think it mostly has to do with the fact that I don't have a toddler to chase after. I can rest when I need to, nap when I need to without having to constantly keep a toddler busy or happy. The kids are amazing. They are quiet when I fall asleep on the couch and feed themselves when they get hungry. It has been awesome. I am truly blessed!
