*Note: In case you missed it, Boogie was born just this past weekend on April 26th, 2008 at 8:18PM. Click here to see the post celebrating the arrival of our beautiful baby boy!*
We’re home now! Well actually, we’ve been home since Monday, but we’ve been busy getting settled and playing catch up since then. It hasn’t helped that our internet connection decided to take a few sick days off and stopped working over the past few days. But everything’s all good now. I have to say that I was actually somewhat surprised that Boogie arrived when he did; two weeks early. I was told numerous times throughout our pregnancy that first babies tend to come late. But I can’t say that I didn’t expect him to come when he did, as our midwife told us last week that he could come over the weekend. And hey, she was right! I guess Boogie was anxious to meet his Mommy and Daddy. I know we were definitely anxious to meet him!
As I type this, Boogie is fast asleep in his bassinet. I must be crazy because I don’t know why I’m not taking advantage of this rare opportunity to get some sleep in for myself. I know I’ll probably regret it later, but being able to watch my beautiful baby boy sleep so soundly makes it all worthwhile.
I love every little thing about my son. From his little tiny feet and little tiny toes, to his fat little cheeks (that he got from his Mommy!), to the sound he makes when he settles down from crying. You all should hear it. It’s like a high-pitched sound, like he’s singing or something, and it sounds so cute (for lack of a manlier word)! I love holding him. He’s my little man! I even love changing his stinky little diapers. Although I’ve seen his poop go from a thick tar-like black, to a regurgitant seaweed-like green, I can’t help but to smile as I wipe his little tush (for lack of another manlier word) while he kicks the crap out of my hands when I attempt to strap his fresh diaper on. I even love the bajillion little farts he’s been spurting out left and right over the past few days. Sure the horrid smell has melted every nose hair in both of my nostrils, I still love them nonetheless. They’re actually quite funny. And the face he makes afterwards is priceless! It always goes something like this:
Boogie’s Butt: bbBbbBbBrrRrrrRRrrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnnNNnnTTTtt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boogie: Oh YES that was a good one! now……falling……a……slee……p……*snore*
Ya gotta love it!
And of course, we’ve been taking pictures like crazy. So for those of you who didn’t skip down to them already, here are Boogie’s first six days of life, in pictures! (By the way, we’ll post his hospital picture as soon as we get it copied!)
Mommy will be updating with a post of her own soon. She’s going to be sharing her whole experience with everything over this past weekend. Also, in honor of Mommy officially becoming a mommy, we have a special surprise planned! We’ll be announcing it tonight, so look forward to that! Well I have to go now, Boogie’s calling!
