Newborn babies don't do much, do they?


At least that we can see with our eyes. I'm sure tons and tons and piles and oodles of things are happening inside!

In looking for another picture to post, I notice that all our pictures are either baby eating, sleeping, or looking hungry or sleepy. Baby guy did lose his umbilical cord stump (what a disturbing word), so that was a thrill. I cried - our baby boy is growing up!

It's so tempting to try to hurry him along in my mind, fantasizing about what it will be like when he is a little older and more alert, but then I remind myself that I will look back from those days thinking, "Oh, remember when he was a newborn and so sweet?"

Live for the present - God's got the future covered!

I think that Baby Guy looks better in the carrier than Punkie---but be sure not to tell Punkie I said that.
Love,
Mom

Is the cat still in that thing, too?
