Famous Firsts

For now, I think I will just skip past the First Night of Horror (let's just say it may not take a village, but it definitely takes a family of three or four to raise a baby...and if someone had told me that I would soon have a baby sleeping in a bouncy seat on my coffee table 24/7, I would have laughed at them, not with them).

Today (day 3) is much better! He was a real trooper all day today as he encountered a number of Firsts. We spent the entire day at Children's Mercy clinics and running errands. He slept and ate right on schedule through all the poking, prodding and inspections. He got several vaccinations today so we're probably in for another cranky night, but we're writing up the shift schedule as soon as I finish posting these pictures...

His first pediatric visit.

His first eye appointment (he did not like this at ALL, but got over it quickly)

His first day at Wal-mart (the wail says it all)

All in all, it was a good day, full of good reports and scheduled follow-up visits to make sure he continues to stay on track. Such a relief.

Yay for going home -- and "heh" about the nights. I don't miss those yet...give me a year or so. :) Glad all the assorted visits went well and that you're settling in.

Do I have your address? I want to send you something.

Beth, it's comforting to know that this stage of feeding every three hours only lasts a few months!

I'll email my address. Whatever could it be? I'm excited now! :-)
