We were posing Noah for birth announcement pictures and Benji thought he'd get in on the action too! Maybe Benji thinks Noah's his brother? Let's hope he get's along better with him than he does with Bentley. Shortly after this picture....both were fast asleep. :) If Sean had been in this picture, it would have been a perfect photo of my three favorite guys. (Sean would have been asleep too.)

Here are some photos from Noah's 3rd bath. It took a few tries to perfect the bath routine. The first two times ended in pee and poopy disasters so we thought not to post those so Noah's self esteem wouldn't be dashed. As you may notice the diaper is on for the majority of the bath. In fact, we've learned that the "lower region" should be the last area cleaned and it should remain covered right up to the time it is to be cleaned. Not only have we perfected our technique but we have also improved our speed! Now if we could only get our dogs washed as quickly! :)

Noah loved his first visit to church. He stayed awake for the Praise music but fell asleep during the sermon. We were told to sleep when he sleeps; but thought that might look odd having us stretched out in the back of the church snoozing. For Father's Day, daddy got to pick out Noah's outfit. He looked so handsome. Everyone especially loved his little shoes.

So I thought I'd add a few more pics today. Both Mommy and Noah are doing ok. (a little tired of course) He's a blast when he's awake and looking around with those big eyes. Makes you wonder how the world must look to the little guy.
The dogs are doing ok with him. They've been really excited. Baylee has become protective over him and tries to keep the other dogs away. Must be some motherly instincts in her. Benji has become overly excited (and a bit jealous I think). And when Noah starts crying and we are holding him in our lap, Benji tries to lick his feet. It's like he's trying to soothe him. I was afraid Bentley would be a handful, but after a couple days, he's more mellow than ever. Our ADD dog is now the calmest dog in the house. What's up with that?

So Aunt Keri came to visit Thursday and gave us all sorts of helpful advise on raising a boy. She is our new hero! We enjoyed visiting to her and are thankful to her for giving us much needed rest. After she left we thought we'd see if Noah liked to swing. Apparently not yet. He likes the swing, but only if it isn't moving! :)
Noah had his first checkup with his pediatrician on Tuesday before leaving the hospital. Dr. Sprayberry said he was doing great. He was optimistic that Noah's jaundice would be cleared up in a few more days. *His lab tests today showed his bilirubin levels are going down :)
