All Evan Wants For Christmas

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006

Is his left nut! And lo, an angel of the Lord came upon them... Oh wait. And lo, when changing his diaper today, I noticed a new bulge, and sure enough, his second testicle has descended and is in its proper place. Come on, you know you've been waiting to hear that news all month. Evan will now be able to partake in the fraternity of all men: the "I'd give my left nut" cliche.
In other Evan news, we went to the midwives for Lisa's 6 week checkup. All was fine, but Lisa wanted to check Evan's weight. Remember, he was 7 pounds, 10 ounces at birth, dropped to 7 even a few days after, was back up to 8 by his 2 week appointment. Now, 6 weeks in, he is roughly (due to the imprecise nature of our weighing method) 11.5-12 pounds! Yeah, 4 pounds in 4 weeks! Ellie didn't weigh 12 pounds until she was 5 months old, and Evan is there just over 5 weeks!
In honor of these two momentous occasions, I give you what I know you all have been wanting for Christmas: naked baby pictures!

Looking contemplatively elsewhere.

Getting that butt up in the air. He must be already thinking about how to start crawling. We're in big trouble.

Full posterior nudity. Only here on You get a good idea of how well he's filling out. Skinny butt, round belly.

Merry Christmas!

Flickr has a cool "Christmas egg," which I used to add a Santa hat to one of Evan's photos. Check it out.

Sleep, Eat, and Poop

Lately, I've been trying to remember just when babies start to get into a set sleeping pattern. Of course, with Ellie it never really ever happened, so that's probably why I don't remember. Evan is still a good sleeper, but we just wish that he would have his deep daytime sleeps at night, instead of his current fitful night sleeping. Still, ten times better than Ellie. And he's still eating better than her too. Both of these are evident in the following picture (how's that for a segue?):

Damn that's one cute baby.
