Oops.

Chris left the hospital for a few hours tonight.  He needed to go home and shower, change clothes, feed the dogs, all that good stuff.  While he was gone, I had big plans.  I was going to get up and shower.  I was going to read my baby book.  I was going to email pictures out to family.

Sadly, none of that was done.  And I blame the Beaner.

I mean, how can a person be expected to do anything with these cheeks just laying around?

And who can even think about sending emails when there is all this hair to ruffle?

I tried.  I really did.  I tried to focus.  I tried to accomplish something.  But then I found these tiny fingers and all hope was lost.

And you know what they say about tiny fingers…  Where there are tiny fingers there are tiny toes…

By the time Chris got back to the hospital, I was babbling about swaddling methods to the Bean and his Bear.

Fortunately for me, Chris is helpless under the super natural powers of the Bean, too.

  1. OH Katie..I feel like getting pregnant now LOL! Michael is so tiny and cute and what a cheerful boy…..give me a big hug to him ok? 🙂

  2. He is so beautiful… And you, Katie! You and Chris are positively GLOWING with parenthood. I can’t wait till I start my own little family with my own little bean.

    Congratulations! He’s simply perfect. No other word can describe a beautiful baby like Michael as well as PERFECTION! Good job mama! That’s how I feel about my two, big, healthy boys. I did not know such perfection could exist in the world until my first was born. I cried with happiness when my second was born because my thoughts were, “I just doubled the amount of perfection in the world!”

  4. Oh my goodness, I am so excited for you guys!!! 🙂 He is so precious and I can not believe all that hair!!! He and Levi would definitely be buddies if they knew each other. Isn’t this just crazy? Like it was all just a dream!? It is absolutely fantastic. I’m a blubbering idiot every time he looks into my eyes. Horray for baby boys. THey are the best.

  5. Liz

    He is so precious! I can’t even believe it. So unbelievably beautiful. You all look great!

  6. i looked through the flickr album and was grinning away the entire time. i especially loved the pictures when he was yawning like, “oh man, have i had a crazy past nine months or what?!” everyone looks so exhilarated… which makes sense, because your little guy is just so darn cute!

  7. Wow, congratulations guys he is so beautiful! I love the hair! Great photos too, thanks for sharing.

  8. Libby

    Amazing! Definitely not your fault, he is such a little stud! I’m sure you won’t be the last girl he distracts!

    He is so adorable. You guys are so lucky!

  12. Congrats you guys! He is so wonderfully cute!

  13. OMG could that pic of Chris and the bean be any freaking CUTER???

    You know, when I was in the hospital no one told me I could shower after my surgery. My only experience with surgery in my life has been getting dogs spayed or neutered, and you can’t bathe them for a week afterwards, so I kinda thought it would be the same deal for people. You should have seen the look on my doctor’s face when I asked her about it on my LAST DAY in the hospital. So, at least you have that.

    Well you got the blog up!! Good job 🙂 I LOVE him–he’s so cute 🙂 I enjoy the hair! Congrats!!!

  15. What a precious baby! I absolutely love all of that hair! There’s not a better feeling in the world than when your child stares into your eyes 🙂 It makes me long for my daughter’s newborn days! Congratulations!

  16. EEEE!!!!!! He’s so CUTE! Most newborns are kind of funny looking, you know? But his head is just the perfect round shape! He is a cute, cute, baby. I’m so glad you’re soaking it up!

  19. Oh boy…That kid is a time stealer and I don’t feel guilty about it. Love the pictures of Chris holding him. Guys holding babies is just so precious. 🙂 Congrats you guys!!

  20. Oh my God! He is absolutely adorable. You know how sometimes newborn babies can look a bit like aliens. He doesn’t, at all. He looks like a sweet angel. He is beautiful.

  21. Sarah Barker

    Great, now I want one.

  22. Roseanne
