|Making the first calls to family from bed|
|Mom and Xavi resting..protected by Diego|
|Our friend and dog sitter, Liz, came by to walk Sasha and Diego and see the new baby. Diego had to be shooed out of our room...He didn't want to leave his post.|
|Faithful Liz...love her pumpkin cookies, bread...anything she bakes!|
|Xavi and Mom...one eye on Papa|
|Ready for our Glamour shots? Not quite...Xavi was not whisked away to be cleaned and poked after his birth, so here we are giving him his first sponge bath the next day. Obviously, I wasn't ready for a close up either...hee hee.|
|Post bath...recovering on mom.|
|Hat? check. Oversized gown? check. Fingernails covered? check. Socks? Not shown, but check. |
He really just prefers to be naked.
|Aunt Laurie came for a visit. There are three aunts that will need to be differentiated...Lori, Laurie, and Laura.|
|Aunt LaLa and Xavi|
|My friends, Audrey and Karen, came to visit on the same day. Audrey brought us clean sheets and a roast.|
Karen brought seaweed soup and hugs.
|I still love to sleep with him on my chest. The best feeling ever.|
|We even ventured outside once I could stand up. Our patio has a great view and some privacy for enjoying the outdoors in sunny California. Here's Sasha making a rare appearance..mostly for whatever I am eating.|
|Papa and his boy. My handsome boys.|
|Aunt Kathy and Uncle Mark came up after his exciting legal conference was over in San Diego. |
They brought, of course, his soon to be favorite t shirt...sorry Uncle Luis.
|Uncle Mark, Xavi, and I...we bargained baby sitting for Packer Bear tickets. |
I remember babysitting for them in exchange for helping with a few speeding tickets.
Good to have an attorney in the family.
Thank you to all who sent well wishes in flowers, plants, balloons, gifts, and cards. We feel so tremendously blessed by our family and friends who supported us during this time. Thank you.
