My new favorite baby, AKA Baby Backer. He is cute, he is quiet and I can't wait to get my hands on him again! He was born on 8/31/07 at 9:46pm and weighed in at 8lbs. 6oz. and was 21 inches long. He put his poor mother through some serious torture. Everything turned out okay in the end. He had a fan club waiting for him consisting of 2 sets of grandparents, an uncle and 3 friends who couldn't wait to find out that he was, in fact, a he! These are the proud parents, the one I used to refer to as the girl under the kitchen and her husband.As soon as the doctors and nurses were done messing with him he settled right down as we passed him around.

Me and the new Mom, happy and relieved! I went back today to see them again. Mom is doing well and recovering nicely. Baby Backer is a being a dream baby, for his first 24 hours anyway. He only cries when he needs something or when they mess with him, then he goes right back to sleep. We passed him around and J-man and T-man got to hold him. Briefly. And with assistance. I got to wake him up to get him ready to eat today by changing his diaper and handing him over to Mom to eat. It was all very exciting. I can't wait to go back tomorrow and I will look forward to babysitting him as much as possible if he keeps up the dream baby behavior. If all goes well they should be headed home tomorrow!

Oh yeah. Tomorrow is J-man's Birthday Party. This is going to cut into my baby time. Grr. We are taking 17 kids bowling and then 6 little boys are coming back to our house for a sleepover. Am I crazy? Ask me Sunday at noon. If I mumble and drool that is not a good sign, may need to call professionals.
