A couple of pictures of the new one

Ok, finally got the pictures off the camera.  We thought we lost them as we couldn't get them onto the computer, and when we thought we finally did we could see where the computer decided to put them!  Things are going well.  I am feeling really great.  We had to take Aubrey in for a well baby visit as per the hospital (one of the many 'only' ways that we were allowed to leave).  He has a clean bill of health.  I really had no plans on taking him or anyone else out of the house for the next couple of weeks, but oh well.  We'll stick to home for now on. 

When we were looking for some baby pictures of the other boys to compare with Aubrey it was a wee bit sad when I realized the settings.  But it was seriously just a wee bit of "oh, bummer".  When I got home I was wondering how I would feel as I walked into my bedroom with all the homebirth supplies set up......unbelievably I felt relieved and knew that I had made the right choice.  I really can't explain it, but I am at total peace with our decision.  And for that I truly thank the Lord.  I finally got my peace that I've been praying for!  And I am thankful, even if it came later than I had anticipated, but always in His right timing. 

Ok, now for a little look at Mr. Aubrey.  Only a couple of pictures thus far.  We didn't take any the first day.  A few the second day, then the batteries in the camera went dead.  I did receive my new lens in the mail, but it was left on our porch and built up some condensation.  Plus my new camera's battery was dead as well.  So for now we have like four pictures of the new little man.

Here he is!!!!  Such a cutie.  Too bad he later scratched up his little face with his nails!!  It's healing now.

We put him in the sun to help with his jaundice.  All my babies get it, and he's no exception.  The only problem we had was that the hospital wouldn't let him go home if his biliruben was at a certain level.  We didn't want to take any chances, so we had him sunbathing.

Jonah is a great big brother!  He loves, loves, loves to hold the baby!!  I was able to totally pin down the both boys' reactions to Aubrey.  When Jonah first saw the baby he said, "Baby tummy?" just as I was expecting.  And Jed, upon seeing then new baby ran out of the room and got on the computer, just as I expected.  Jonah is always asking to hold him, and can't get enough of his new baby.

Moira joining in for the photo.  All the girls are ga ga goo goo over Aubrey.  They are starting to tell each otehr how many minutes each one of them gets.  They make sure to let you know if someone went over their time limit.  It's really neat to see how much more adept at holding a baby that Isabella and Moira are showing.  Isabella even buckled Aubrey up in his car seat today.  And both girls changed a poopy diaper, on their request.  Amazing how just a week or so ago a certain older girl insisted that she didn't know how to change poopy diapers when I had asked her to change Jonah.  Hmmmm.  I suppose she did herself in now :-) 

That's it for now.  Isabella is holding the baby.  We've all eaten, the girls are watching a movie, while the boys and Flannery are running around.  I guess I'll be off to relax :-)
