Patrick Update

Sorry there have been so few posts this week. It was my first week back at work since Patrick was born so we're all getting in the swing of things with the new schedule.

Patrick had his 2 week check-up yesterday and everything went great. He now weighs 8lbs 7.5oz and is 20.25 inches long! He gets more and more alert every day and even spoiled us with a couple great nights of sleep this week.

Patrick's Aunt Mandie got in last night from Idaho and got to meet him for the first time. We're really excited to have her staying with us for the next week (and no, it's not just because she'll help us get Patrick's closet organized; although, that's a pretty nice bonus).

The other member of the family Patrick has gotten to spend a lot of time with is our dog Roxanne. So far, he and Roxy get along great. She's very watchful with him and comes and gets us every time he cries. We call her The Babysitter. Here are a few pictures of Roxy keeping her ever-vigilant watch over Patrick and a bonus picture of Patrick enjoying his favorite activity - sucking on his right arm.

10 Picture Thursday

As I mentioned before, we have A LOT of pictures. I'm pretty sure the first week of Patrick's life has been photo-documented more than any other baby on earth (except for babies that some TV show is literally doing a documentary on...those kids win this contest).

Because of the shear amount of pictures, I was planning on making a big slideshow with all the best ones we or other people have taken over the last week. But, a few people have mentioned to me that they want to be able to save the pictures to their computer so they can email them to other friends/family or use it as their desktop background or Photoshop their face on to Angie's body so they can pretend they're the ones with this wonderful little baby in their arms.

And so, we picked 10 pictures we really like and thought you might too. Clicking on them will show you a (MUCH) larger version that you can do whatever you'd like with. Here they are in no particular order

Two Videos

We have some really great pictures taken by grandparents, aunts, uncles, us and what seems like a cast of thousands. I'll try to get some of the best together and post a slideshow soon; but for now, here are a couple videos.

This is one of Sleepy-time Patrick (the noise you hear in the background is Mom-of-the-year Angie vacuuming)

And this is one of Just-after-feeding-when-I-should-probably-be-sleeping-but-instead-I’m-awake-and-looking-around-like-always Patrick

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to keep checking back for pictures, stories and more!

Introducing, Patrick Joseph...

I'll write more about the delivery and add a few more pictures later on. Both Angie and Patrick are doing great though and we're just excited he's finally here!

Thanks to everybody that's visited and for all your thoughts and prayers. Patrick is definitely a very loved little boy!
