Your typical, blubbering, proud parents...

Seven Justice Vernon Whetzel
born 12:33pm on August 31, 2007
19 3/4 inches, 7 lbs., 10 oz.

Not gonna even discuss the basket case I was for the C-section, or the night of the surgery or the daze I was in the first week. Not going into the 10 day hospital stay we endured only a week after taking him home for the first time. Just going to be glad that we got the chance to bond with him all of that time and learn the ins and outs of our son.

Now that we have Seven home, safe and sound, we are just out of our gourds, I think. We talk about baby poop, in detail, on a daily basis, and it's fun. He's really changed our lives, for the better, and life really is good. Tired? A bit, but it's worth it. But he's really, really good. We actually have him sleeping most of the night already, giving us about 4-5 hours at a stretch. I can handle that, no problem.

we are anxious for the days when he laughs, smiles for reasons other than gas, and even utters a few syllables. The little guy is so cute already though. At least we think so. I spend a lot of time just looking at him. So, here he is...our beautiful baby boy.

Here's a lshort clip of the little man playing with his wrist rattles. As you can see, this is a very tiring activity, and a long nap was sure to follow.
