Xander and his dad!!

I just thought I'd post a pic of Travis and Xander!! Travis is definitely in love with his son! I know they will have a great relationship as they Xander gets older. Xander is growing so fast. I already miss the first week and how small he was. I love how they snuggle up in a tiny ball during that first week...then they figure out they have more space to move around and they aren't so snuggled up!! :) He is great baby and we are so grateful to have him in our family!!

What a cutie!! I am not biased or anything :)!!!

Xander is one week old today!!!

After one week, we are still surviving the excitement of a new baby. Thank heavens that I have my mom and dad around to help me with the girls while Travis has been working and I have been trying to take care of Xander! I really couldn't have done it without my running the girls to and from school, girl scouts, gymnastics, and all the other activities that go on. My mom is also become the queen of doing hair (and that is not very easy with the amount of hair that Ellie has). I really can't express the gratitude that I have for my mom and all that she is doing for me. She never makes me feel bad for all the time that I spend feeding Xander, pumping, taking naps, and needing to sit and rest to let my c-section scar heal up!! I really love her and my girls do to!!

My sister has requested that I upload some more photo's of Xander. So here they are!!

Xander wasn't sure how he felt about his first bath at home!! The girls loved assisting with his bath!!

The girls love holding and being with their brother. They are sweet and gentle with him. They have had great experiences with babies while Gavin, their cousin, was also living here with my parents!!

Aeryn wanted to hold Xander tonight while we were all sitting and watching T.V. She actually held him for about 30 minutes. And he was awake the whole time. He just hung out in her arms. I kept asking if she wanted me to take him back, but she just wanted to hold him. She was sad when she had to put him down when it was bed time for her!!

Our little Pumpkin!! I know that he is quite orange/yellow! He is a little jaundiced and it is working out of his body. Not a big deal! He is so cute!! He really is such a great baby! He barely cries...when he is hungry, he just grunts!! He has a perfectly round head and I love it!! It is so cute!! I hope that you have enjoyed these pictures!
