parental guilt

so feeling slightly guilty but not too bad. we took Tavin for his circumcision this morning. he did really well considering what was happening to him. i thought i did well even being in the room considering i can't watch any of that operation Dr type stuff. brock watched the whole thing and found himself cringing for Tavin. i said it was better to do now then when he's 14, then he'd really hate us. mom said he's gonna hate us at 14 anyways so we could have used it as a threat or punishment. now what act would require that as a consequence. hhhhhmmmmmmm.

welcome little man

so yesterday after a whopping 25min of labour, (oh my goodness! that was a little crazy i must say! )we welcomed tavin brock griffin to our family. 9lbs 6oz and 22 inches. i'm not really sure where he was all hiding in me, but it does suddenly explain alot of the strange discomfort and movements i never really had with the much smaller baby girls we have. so far we're all doing well. i was discharged from the hospital not 24 hrs after his birth, which was good cause my room mate had a fussy little girl so we didn't sleep at all last night. so here's to hope of some decent sleep tonight.

one week

well here we are, one full week past due. ugh. today's my NST: non stress test, for the baby. and if nothing happens i'm supposed to be induced on wed, so on the bright side i should only be pregnant for 3 more days regardless. sigh. feeling very discouraged being this over due. but i did get an actual weekend of rest, aside from all the walking, raspberries and contractions. my in laws took the girls for 2 nights in great hope that all my contractions would lead to prince humperdink's arrival. my parents are home from the funeral of my grandpa and learned something new. apparently his name wasn't really Henry as we had all believed, it was Heinrich, much more german. mom wanted to know if we were gonna name the babe Heinrich now, HA! if she only knew what we were planning. ha ha ha! come on baby!
