My first 2 weeks of life through pictures

Since Davis' arrival, life has been quite different.  I was lucky enough to have my mom here for 2 weeks and now I am experiencing having someone "attached to your hip" in the truest sense of the word.  When do moms go to the bathroom???

Rather than writing lots of posts or a super-duper long one about what has gone on in the last 2 weeks, I thought I would just share pictures to fill you all in.  So, here we go: (Davis will narrate.)

We were scheduled to go in to be induced on 2/13, but I decided to send mom into labor at 1:30 in the morning before we had to go in.  I'm full of surprises.

They gave mom the pitocin around 6:00am and I made my debut at 1:21pm.  This is the first time I got to see my mom and she got to see how handsome I am.

Then my dad came over.  As soon as I heard his voice, I recognized him and looked right at him.  We became pals right away.

We spent some quality time together.  Male bonding type of thing.

I tried to take in everything he had to tell me.

Next I got to meet my Gram.  She's my new best friend.

After a few days in the hospital, it was time to go home.  Mom was so nervous to take me home and be responsible for me.  Let's hope she can handle it.

I took a little snooze after I got home.  All of these new things are exhausting.

My Gramps got to town while they were bringing me home.  He sure is a fun guy and kept telling me how handsome and smart I am.  I liked him instantly!

My Uncle Greg and Aunt Catherine came over.  I slept for about 3 straight hours in their arms.  I think mom wants them to move in.

Because I was a little Jaundice, the doctor said they should supplement some formula.  This was dad giving me my first bottle.  Immediately after they fed this to me, I had a blowout which led to my first bath.  I was up all night tonight and the next night with an upset tummy, so mom said no more formula for me.

Uncle Greg and Aunt Catherine brought me tulips and then Aunt Ellie, Uncle Tom and Gram Weez sent me flowers in this awesome red wagon.  The wagon is now on a shelf in my room.

On Friday, Auntie Beth came to town to meet me.  She is awesome and took some great pictures that show off my handsomeness.  (I will show the pictures in a different post.)

Mom and Beth are best friends.  We had a very fun weekend.

Dad gives the best snuggles.

My new friends Micah and Toby came over to visit. 

These boys are so fun and I can't wait to play with them more when I get bigger.

I also got to meet my Memaw and Papa.  They are dad's parents and are lots of fun.  They also invited me out for Mexican food.  Yummy.

Just me and Gram spending more time together.

She is HILARIOUS!  Life is good so far!

You don't want to see mama get mad.

So much for this little boy coming early.  Tomorrow is my due date and I have decided that as of Tuesday, I will start charging him a daily late fee.  I am not giving up that he will show up today or tomorrow though.

Tuesday I have an ultrasound scheduled where they will check my fluid levels.  If they are low, they will induce that day.  If not, I go to my regular weekly doctor appointment where I am going to request they strip my membranes again....maybe I will pull out a cheer from my cheerleading days in elementary school about being AGGRESSIVE! 

If he doesn't show up by Monday the 13th, we have an induction scheduled; but let's hope that is unnecessary.  My doctor asked if I had an issue with being induced on the 13th because I guess a lot of people are superstitious to the point of avoiding giving birth on this day.  I let her know that I have no qualms about it, but now am wondering if I should have made a it big deal so she maybe would have scheduled it for the Friday before....probably not though. 

So, that's the plan.  Say your prayers for me, however, that he comes sooner rather than later. 

Boy, get out here STAT!  (you know I'm serious when I bust out my medical terminology...)
