What's up...

It's hard to believe that our little man is 11 days old today!  Here is what we've been up to...

- Colin's first glamour shot:

- While we were in the hospital we had some bonding time.  Here are my boys:

- My parents came every day while we were in the hospital.  Colin is their first grandchild.  They are completely wrapped around his finger!  (as are Garet and I!)

- While pregnant, they say don't eat deli meat without heating it up to steaming in the microwave.  Well I LIVED off of turkey sandwiches, so this was really hard for me to give up.  I didn't eat any deli meat the whole pregnancy.  Why risk it, ya know?  (by the way, I am SO sick of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!)  So, I told Garet for my first meal after delivery I wanted a turkey sandwich from Subway.  So, here I am with one of the best lunches I had in a long time!

- We were able to leave the hospital on Sunday (the 26th).  We were all dressed and ready to go!

- Once home we tried out some of our toys:
Colin loves his swing!  He isn't so sure about his activity mat, but it is great for tummy time!

- I think I could spend every waking minute just staring at him!  Here he is in his swing... he hangs out here a lot!

- I had spinal headaches (from the spinal block they did in the hospital)... this was the worst pain!!  I could hardly see straight... it lasted a few days after I got home, but I was up for giving Colin his first bath!  He HATED it!  =)  I think he cried the entire time, but calmed down when I got the towel on!

- We have tons of clothes, but we really didn't get that many 0-3 month old stuff.  And some of the 0-3 month old outfits are too big right now, so my mom and dad brought a few cute outfits for him to wear.  I just love the ones with a cute booty!

-  We have been doing really well with adapting to having a baby in the house.  A lot of it is thanks to my parents for being here!  It has been such a blessing having them!  They have helped with cooking, cleaning, laundry, everything!  It will be interesting to see how we do when they leave (this week!)  We have been able to take some cute pictures of Colin!

- A few days ago Garet, Colin, Suzi and I went on our first family walk around the neighborhood.  It was nice to get out and about!

- We love being parents to Colin!  He is such a blessing and such a good baby!  I will try to keep up with the blog better - I know that family back home really wants to see him!  This is as close as it gets until we come home for the holidays.
