Yesterday afternoon he woke up from his nap with tons of smiles and lots of happy baby noises. He loves to hold onto your finger and walk up and down the hallway. Someone has taught him to give kisses and they are so wonderful! He loves to run between us and have us pick him up and give him snuggles. He is so sweet.
At dinner, it started to feel like reality was setting in for us. We each had our first moments of "Oh my gosh what have I gotten myself into!" He is hungry all of the time and if we would let him, he would eat everything! We fed him noodles, cantaloupe, beef, dumplings, & apples and mango baby food. Food makes him very happy. Bedtime went really well. We had a few seconds of panic and tears when I tried to put him in the bath tub. He has never had a bath before. I let him stand and hold on to me for dear life as Ryan used a washcloth to clean him. I hate to say this but he was a little stinky. It is so hot and sticky humid here and he is a sweaty fireball. He was happy to get out of the tub. We gave him a bottle and he was sound asleep by 8:00pm. He had a few coughing fits throughout the night and every time he would make a noise we jumped to check on him. He woke up happy this morning at 6:00am.
Now for what everyone really wants... The pictures! ~Ronda
