An introduction (and baby pictures)

Hello, friends! It's been a while. 

I've got lots to catch you up on...and lots of laundry to catch up on...and some sleep, too.

But first, there's this guy- I just have to introduce you.

Baby Felix Alexander was born Friday, August 1at 3:10 pm after 3 hours (plus two and a half weeks) of labor. We brought him home on Saturday to a delighted and welcoming crowd of little reaching arms and cooing voices.

And he is making life so blessedly, happily full these days.

I've really never felt more immediately at ease with a baby. He's just a perfectly snuggly and mellow guy so far. 

We had a lovely two week getting acquainted period, lovingly dubbed "Felixcation," when George was home from work and we could all hang out together. 

We have learned some key things about Felix:

He likes to move.

He wants to be held.

He has the cutest toes in the known universe.

He makes loud humming noises while he nurses,

He enjoys a rousing rendition of The Itsy Bitsy Spider. If sung loudly enough, it can even quiet him when he is upset in the car.

His sneezes sound like the sneezes of a fully-grown person, and he always sneezes twice.

His favorite time to poop is whenever his diaper is off.

So, consider yourself introduced. Now that I've finally posted that, I can gradually catch you up on the other things. 

Enough is enough for one day, though, right? I have baby rocking to do.
