Get Baby Shower Gifts sez Brendan

Actually not really since Brendan's room is already packed full of wonderful gifts from previous showers! But his grandma's boss Rodney set up another shower for the little guy now that he is born and out of the womb. The shower is today so as I type this Brendan is being devoured by moms.

Mommy had been waiting to dress him up in this outfit....notice the baby shoes and amphibian-like legs Brendan is showing off. Basically, he's ready to go.

By the way, when he had the operation the other day, Brendan was 8 pounds 8 ounces. Mommy is having a hard time keeping up with this guy's demand :)

Mommy & Brendan r sleeping

Brendan had an 'operation' yesterday and performed admirably. He is getting some much needed rest today.


A few days ago we brought Brendan to the lake house and he loved the breeze. He also got to see his sweet cousin Ellie and Aunt Jill. And got a kiss on the head.

Brendan post-feeding with Mommy

When is the only time you will find a content baby Brendan? After he feeds with mommy for hours. What a guy...

7 pounds 14 ounces


Brendan had his first doctor visit and he is now 7 pounds 14 ounces, and to think he was 6 pounds 5 ounces when we left the hospital (6 pounds 9-10 ounces at birth). So all is well in his world.

Also we are getting him clipped for just 55$ - we had expected it to be several hundred dollars so that's a treat.

Babies sleep often

It is surprising to see Brendan sleep 3-5 hours at a time. I know mommy enjoys the rest, and we've been letting him sleep instead of waking him up in hopes of developing feeding cues for the little guy. Meanwhile mommy has been figuring out the double breast pump - it's a funny machine to see in action. Obviously it is a necessity so that mother can get some time to herself.


As of today at 4:53 pm (a little over an hour), Brendan will be 1 week old.

Laughing at Babies, Pictures


So my son Brendan is almost a week old. It is amazing all the memories I have of him so far in his young life. Pooping and peeing all over the place when his diaper is off and we're cleaning him. It did not take long for these incidents to occur and I can imagine his timing will continue to be impeccable.
