Meet Merritt

So I just realized that we don't have any whole body shots, which is a shame, cause he's got a pretty one. So solid and cute. I do have amazing news, though. He successfully peed in his mouth this morning while I was changing him. He started to pee while I was between diapers, and so I tried to block the pee with my hand, but not before a very accurate stream had gone directly into his open mouth. Gross and kinda cool.

Here he is. You gotta love those CHEECKS! And the hair! Oh, isn't he just amazing??

He reminds me of Josie in this one. The eyes are really similar to her's at that age.
And this one is classic. This was literally moments after I pushed him out, and I definitely look the part. When I looked in the mirror a little while later and said "Yikes" the nurse said, "just think of it as war-paint." I just love the picture cause it brings me back to that on-top-of-the-world moment that it was. So great.

He is perfect! Congratulations mom, you did great! And I still think little boys are the best, but soon I'll experience little girls. How is it now that he's home? How's Josie with her new little brother?

Oh my gosh, I can't believe he looks like you already!! What a cutie. I am so proud that you pushed all of that out, naturally. What a chunk!! I love it! Hope you're doing well!

Mimsy. What a guy. So cute! He's not a baby. He's a man. He's huge! Those cheeks are the cheeks of a 6 month old. What a healthy strapping boy. What size of clothes fit him? 3-6 month right off the bat? Congrats. Darling as expected.

I started commenting the other day and was beckoned for a nursing session. Anyway, hooray for war paint pictures. I think I'll post one of my own on my blog soon. I'm so happy all of that is done for us and we just get to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Haha. Way to go. You're my inspiration.
