Baby Acne!!

I think we are finally getting into the groove of Andrew. He is a great sleeper and a pretty good eater (even though he does not particularly like my right boob right now-- it makes him cry for some unknown reason) He is very content and is happy most of the time. However, the baby acne has reared its ugly head again. Kai got the worse baby acne when he was a baby. His face was covered in bumps, and we are starting to see the same thing on Andrew (just in time for the holidays) They say baby acne is due to the hormones nursing babies get from their mother. It doesn't last long, but it certainly makes a cute baby not so cute.

Talking in your sleep

Here is Andrew Scott celebrating his Uncle Scott's 30th birthday party at Olive Garden!!

We are now 11 days into the life of Andrew. My mom has been amazing helping us out. She came over everyday last week to cook, clean and just be there to help out. Kai got strep throat so he was home with us for a couple of days, so having my mom there really saved the day.

Kai has not quite adjusted to life with a brother... I wish I could say he took to him instantly as shown in this picture ( completely staged by me... neither one had any idea what was going on)

But instead it is more like this...

Don't get me wrong. Kai loves his brother. He is concerned when he cries and wants to know where he is at all times, but he doesn't want to touch him and is often upset by how much time Andrew takes away from his mom/Kai time. I told him he has to share him mommy with Andrew and that didn't go over to well.

Other than that Andrew is adjusting well to life outside the womb. He is eating good and sleeping very good (granted he is sleeping in the bed cuddled up next to me). I plan on continually working on getting this child into the crib. This is the forth baby our crib has seen and has yet to have a baby regularly sleep in it. Yesterday I was successful in getting him to take a 3 hour nap in his crib. I took a picture for documentation purposes to prove to myself that sleeping in the crib is possible. Right now he is sound asleep in the middle of my king size bed.

Hey baby, Hey baby......

Home and Healthy.

Well he is here finally at 9 pounds 13 ounces. Andrew Scott Roberts was born on November 5th, 2008 at 5:19pm. He is a big boy and he looks a lot like Kai but without the dimples. He may have the dimples but he's a chunk so maybe we can't see them. Anyhoo... We are all doing great. We are happy that we're home and that Lindsay and Andrew are healthy. I'm going to post some pictures but I'm sure more will follow.
