some more pictures





We're home, we're good and we're all glad to have a healthy baby. It was such a wonderfully contrasting experience to immediately have your baby handed to you, have him cry, stare at him and try to decide who he looks like rather than worry about whether or not he is breathing or when you might be able to take him home.

At this point, Eli probably needs more recovery from his big weekend than I do: Our awesome friends took him down to San Diego for a day at Legoland and other miscellaneous fun...don't worry, they have six month old triplets and a three year old too; for the record, I told her she was crazy but I consented to let him go because 1-I was about to give birth to a baby and I hadn't had an epidural yet and 2- when someone offers to do something that nice, you become the crazy one if you turn them down. So two days of no naps and extreme fun has left Eli a little out of sorts. He likes Tate, but only on his terms. Any suggestions from us that Eli hold or kiss him have been flatly rejected. Frankly, the fact that Eli hasn't deliberately hurt the baby or burned our house down yet is encouraging.

He is so handsome, Ash. Your mom says she thinks he looks more like you than Eli did. I think so too, especially in that picture of him with his hospital bracelets (on the other post). He is SO cute. I'm already counting down the days until the ranch! I hope you're getting some sleep.
Love you,
Jord

Yeah! You added more pictures since last night. In case you can't tell, I really can't get enough and would be dying right now if I didn't have a plane ticket there in t minus four days. I still say he's more you than anybody else!
