We went up for several hours in the afternoon. Both mother and baby slept or rested most of the time, and that's all to the good. This is one of my first pictures with the little guy. It took me awhile to relinquish him. Then, grandma took a turn, and by golly it was longer than mine.
And this is the first picture of Nikki Dee and Zachary together. Neither is at all interested in the other. ND did show some mild interest but no more than for a light switch or a what have you. In the picture, she's being distracted by the tv.
I thought Nikki Dee was a baby until today, but Zach's tininess almost flabbergasted me, and made me realize that she isn't. He's a pretty big baby too, even slightly bigger than Nikki Dee two years ago. My how they grow and change. We all know this in one way, but the tangible evidence still tends to surprise.
This is how Zach spent most of his first afternoon in this life (below). He's well covered in this shot, so his lack of a bath doesn't show too much, nor do his birthing marks. We can't figure out who he resembles yet: nobody that know. Stay tuned.
Then we took over the care of Nikki Dee so Daddy could go back to the hospital for the evening. She continues to amaze by naming various letters of the alphabet and putting the peices of both number and alphabet puzzless largely in the right place. She doesn't always get them oriented, but I'm still pleased. My name seems to be Buppa.
Although we're all tired, I wanted to get this out for family and friends. And now to sleep. I hope.
