Andy at 3 weeks

Some cute faces:







Andy's got a bit of the baby acne thing going on. I looked it up--Dr. Greene says it comes from hormones left over from mom. He also says, "It tends to occur at about the same age as the baby's peak gas production and fussiness....(This all coincides with parents' maximum sleep deprivation.)" I can relate.

Andy continues to be very gassy, and he also has a stuffy nose right now and is having trouble breathing. After a very bad night and another session with the snot-sucker this morning, he's finally resting more comfortably. I foresee naps for everyone this afternoon.

Helena,

He is sooo beautiful! I love baby boys!

I'm assuming my baby boy was that small but I just don't remember it.

I love the second picture. Does he look like Doug?

Hazel's congestion is so deep that I can't get most of it with a snot-sucker and she just isn't breathing well. I called her doctor this morning, and they are sending over a machine (from the same company that brought over the bili-light) called a BBG, which the doctor said is short for "Baby Booger-Getter." I thought that was hilarious. It is supposed to work really well.
