What a week! Sorry I couldn’t get back to you sooner. I got an infection while in the hospital and then yesterday my incision got infected as well, resulting in Ezra’s first field trip… back to the hospital with me to see a doctor. Man, he is gonna freak out when we actually get him out somewhere FUN.
But because of said infections and resulting fevers and such, my blogging was put on the back burner. However, I have still been taking photos along the way so I can remember this time. I should warn you that while I do photoshop my clients’ photos to remove infant skin issues (flaking, acne, etc etc) I don’t want to do that with Ezra because I want to remember these days exactly as they were. So if you didn’t know, babies lose a ton of skin in their first few days, and then later they get crazy acne. It’s normal, it’s just that it’s normally photoshopped away.
Also, because of my recovery, I’m not supposed to climb stairs which means I’m confined to the upstairs of our house for the first week or two. So if these images seem a touch repetitive, know that my “locations” are limited. OK! Enough excuses!
Don’t you love that image of Jamie holding Ezra up there? Yeah. What a coupla hotties.
I snapped this on our way home from the hospital. You can barely see it, but he’s in pants and a hoodie. Baby hoodies. Who knew?
Poor Mags was pretty freaked out the first few days. She’s really good now, even sniffing and licking Ezra a bit. But don’t let her fool you. She’s just trying to steal his pacifiers.
Nobody likes it when their face peels off! Surprisingly, you know what helps with this? Breast milk. Too much information? Sorry.
These brothers hit it off pretty great. But Ezra still isn’t sure about dog kisses. Or maybe it’s the breath…’
I shot this from bed when I had a fever the other day. Hence the strange angle.
See how fast they grow up? Ha! I love the hat with the mustache. He looks like Mario or some other small-time crook.
And then just a few shots from today’s nap. Before he peed on me. But seriously, who could even mind. What a sweetie.
