yesterday we welcomed zachary sebastian into our family. he weighed 8lbs 11oz and was 20.5″ long. both he and mom are doing well and relaxing in the total comfort of a hospital room until they come home tomorrow.
i’ll post pictures and bit more about this (and nathaniel meeting his brother) when things settle down a little bit more over here.
always with the hands on his face
so as we are nearing the 3rd trimester of baby pepe’s gestation, everything is going pretty smoothly. since julia had a few complications the last time, we have the pleasure of going to the doc for sonograms every four weeks. it’s actually a nice thing, because we’re able to track everything a lot closer than going every two-three months. also, we get to see baby pepe forming into hopefully, a much calmer child than nathaniel.
apparently nathaniel has now decided that baby pepe should be named ‘baby’ when he’s born. i hate to admit it, but that was at the top of my list as well. now if i can only get pickles to commit, julia can’t filibuster the baby naming and we can push it through.
i'm going to be a big brother, i have to DRESS like a big brother
just realized i never mentioned on here that we are expecting baby #2 this coming march. nathaniel, of course, is pretty excited.
for the first month or so after we told him, no matter what we said, he wouldn’t believe anything other than the baby was in MY belly, not julia’s. that, and he wanted to name baby #2 ‘elephant.’
when we’d ask him if he wanted a brother or a sister, he’d say ‘sister’. if we’d ask him if he wanted a sister or a brother, he’d say ‘brother.’ when we told him he was going to have a baby brother, he was upset with us and told us ‘NO!’ and made a raspberry. i’m not sure why, but he was pretty upset about not having a sister.
he has since gotten over it, and is looking forward to having a baby brother.
he regularly kisses and hugs julia’s belly and says ‘i love you pepe.’ (which is our in utero name for baby #2)
i asked him if he was going to share all of his toys with his brother, he said yes. i’m going to hold him to that.
just chillin', yo
