6 in the house

Since we came home last Monday, the pugs have had to step down from #1 in the house to #2. Wyatt has naturally taken over the numero uno spot in the house. But, all three pugs seem to have adjusted fairly well. They seem sensitive when Wyatt cries and even quietly rest near his crib when he sleeps. With a lot of my time being taken up by feeding, I'm glad Caleb is finding extra time to give the pugs more attention so they know they're still loved.

We have found that Wyatt really likes to ride in the car - within a few minutes of riding he is either quietly looking around or sound asleep. So far he's taken four trips in the car and they all result in a content little boy.

One week old!

Yesterday Wyatt was officiallly one week old - some of the hours seem to pass slowly but as I look back, that week really went by quickly. We have discovered that he really likes to sleep in a vibrating chair his Aunt had passed on to us - thank you!!! It gives us two free hands - everytime we'd lay him down on the bed he'd wake back up, but the chair keeps him resting just a little bit longer...

Wyatt got his first "bath" yesterday. His Dad wiped him clean with a washcloth and then proceeded to style his hair into a baby mohawk.

Some details...

I just realized I haven't officially posted the birth details -
Edward Wyatt Yao Hamel was born on Saturday 7/18/09 weighing 7lbs 2 oz and measuring 19 inches. He was delivered by cesarean section since it was determined the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. We are pleased that he is with us!

The latest baby news

Well, Wyatt Edward Yao Hamel (and Mom) were released from the Hospital yesterday around 2pm. So we spent the third night at home which was nice - no interruptions from the hospital staff at home ;)

The pugs are only semi interested in him - they each are reacting differently to the new member of the household. (Paris is so cute to watch as she tries to figure out the crying) Dad has been very helpful both at the hospital and at home. We're thankful that he has this week off so he can help out. There's already a list of things for him to do for today (errands, etc).

So far so good!

39 weeks and still waiting

Yes, no Wyatt yet...I'm officially 39 weeks and 1 day along in my pregnancy. AND, I honestly don't feel any different than I did 2 weeks ago. I have another appointment this Tuesday so perhaps I'll get some encouraging news that day. We are ready to meet Wyatt! The calendar is wide open!

Wyatt's room and 38 week pics

Well, Mom (Nana) and Dad (Kong Kong) have been busy trying to add some finishing touches on Wyatt's room before he arrives. Together they made the window treatments for his room. The fabric she found matches the border in the room perfectly. I think it looks great. Here are some pictures of his room.

You can see part of the border here along with his crib, his cubbies that hold his clothes and some toys and the blanket that Grandma (Caleb's Mom) made, hanging on the wall.

Here is the view when you walk into the room. You can see the rocker, CD player for some soothing music and the little blue container on the bed has all of the diaper changing supplies.

And here are some of the latest pictures of the baby belly...these are taken at 38 weeks!

My poor vegetable garden did not seem to make it this year...I've said my good byes to the garden this year...I'll try again next year. BUT, some of my other plants are doing well - the ponytail palms I have in the front of the house and my jade plant look great. AND, I have two plumeria stalks that I planted that are now rooted and have a lot of leaf growth already. I did plant some lychee seeds recently and they've just sprouted but I'm not sure if they'll keep growing. This is my second time around trying to get a plant from some lychee seeds.

My jade plant (there is another succulent plant in there too but the jade takes up the majority of the pot).

Pregnancy Update

I had another Doctor Appointment this past Tuesday - an ultrasound was done to see how big Wyatt might be so far. Being that I'm 37 weeks along right now it was MUCH more difficult to make out the different body part of Wyatt. He's just taking up so much room in my belly right now. BUT, from his measurements they estimate he's about 6 lbs right now. So, he's not the big boy we thought he might be! Unfortunately, Wyatt wasn't so cooperative with trying to take a picture so we did not get any photos to take home. We're scheduled for yet another appointment this Tuesday...if I make it that long, of course!!
