We paid another visit to the pediatrician today. Liam refrained from pooping on anything, but as you can see from the photo he did decide to soil the patient table. No pants required.
Liam getting his temperature taken. It was 98.6, for the record. He wasn't very polite--check out the soiled sheet.
He weighed in at nearly 9 pounds, 4 ounces stretching to nearly 22 inches as his four-week birthday arrives tomorrow. We’re told we have a very healthy little boy. We are very lucky.
Speaking of visits, I made my first trip to Diapers.com and came away impressed. I purchased around 260 diapers for about $41.00 including next day shipping. It was easy. Once Mrs. Moosh passes along her referral code, she’ll make a little money. If anyone would like to say I referred you, please use my code: SKSU0938.
As I’m finding out–and what might cause the demise of this blog–events like pooping and peeing are the big events for SulliDad these days. (For those scoring at home, Liam has three poops so far!)
Here are a few quick thoughts from my first 20 hours of fatherhood:
-I simply want to hold him all the time.
-I’ve always been a little nervous holding newborns. Not with Liam. Weird how that works.
-Molly was ridiculously strong. And how about that photo of her and Liam? No joke, that was taken two minutes after delivery and she looked like she just finished an easy one-mile warm-up jog, not labor.
-The mac n’ cheese is pretty tasty here.
-Great Grandpa/Grandma Stearns brought me a Frosty. Awesome.
-Nurses are awesome.
-I think I felt my Dad watching over us. I hope to make him proud.
-Our families are great; we are really lucky.
-Liam smells like a baby. Great scent.
