Well, Adam is 3 weeks old today and he is adjusting to life outside the womb fairly well. He was officially due on 12-21 (this last Sunday), but instead of being born, he was experiencing his first bath. He sleeps a LOT during the day and is doing all the things an infant is suppossed to be doing-eating, eating, eating, pooping, and of course, sleeping. He is very much an easy going baby, unless we take too long to change him or feed him...then his squeaks and coos turn into full blown screams. He tends to get really red in the face when things aren't going exactly his way, but that just makes him all the cuter. Amazingly, when the sun sets (usually around 8pm) he miraculously awakens and is bright eyed and bushy tailed from his restful day. Sometimes he peeks with just one eye open to see if there is still any light outside, and if there is, he'll go back to sleep. Looks like he's training to be a night owl like Mommy. However; once the lights dim, he loves to hang out and take in the world around him (after a marathon eating period of course). Big sisters, Yasmeen and Leena, are loving him more each day and often argue about who gets to hold him first when they get home from school. He is such a sweet, little boy and we are so grateful to have him safe and sound at home with us. Happy Holidays, everyone!
- Hi. I"m living in the Northeast with my supportive hubby, 2 great girls and toddler son. I run a home based business around scrapbooking and rubber stamping and love everything about those crafts! I also work p/t as a Physician Assistant in Internal Medicine...back after a 10 year hiatus to take care of the kids--loving that, too!

Well, It's over a week since Adam was born and I am finally home and recuperating well. We went into the hospital for a scheduled c/s on 12-3-08 and went into the O.R. on time and had Adam at exactly 7:14pm (much to my anxious relief). He weighed in at 7-14, too, so that was kind of cool. He measured 19 3/4 inches and let out a very discrete cry upon entering the world. His apgars were 8/9. He is so sweet and my precious little miracle. We are so grateful to have him safe and sound in our arms and excited to be back home (those hospital beds are awful!!). Although I've had my share of pain post-op, Adam is worth every little bit. He's a quiet baby, sleeping most of the day (although somehow Daddy and I don't manage to sleep much at all) and waking once the sun goes down. Nursing is going well, although it seems Adam has a hearty appetite and I hope I can keep up with the demand! We are so grateful for his presence in our family and happy to share our joy with you. Here are some pictures of our newest addition!!
