Baby's First Week At Home

Boy, kids are really wearing their pants baggy these days!

Apparently, he believes that if he can get back into the correct position, his mommy will put him back where it was warm and cozy.

I don't know why, but when babies make this face it's cute. When adults make it, they look dopey.

Cute little toesies.

He's such a cute little boy.

Shhhh... you wake him, you take him.

He loves his baths. Just don't take him out of the water.

Look what I found in a remote corner of the Sistine Chapel.

Xander with his Auntie Gayleen.

Another bath. He really likes them as long as he doesn't have to get out.

Baby Pictures

Well everyone, he's here. Xander Gage Claycomb has finally made his appearance. When I get some more time, I will try an give the delivery story, but here are some pictures of the experience. He was 9 pounds, 10 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long, born at 7:38.

Shanyn getting settled in. It would only be a short FOUR HOURS before the doctor showed up.

She was still all smiles at this stage in the game.

It's actually Dr. Angel, but hopefully this is a premonition of things to come.

More than 12 hours later, Shanyn was a bit tuckered... needless to say.

I'm not really sure if the guy on the right was really a surgeon, but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

And the delivery time is...

"Hello Dallas! Are you ready to ROCK?!"

I'm not really sure... but I'm pretty sure... baby's pissed to have been moved.

Apparently, all he wanted was a hat. Buck naked, but throw a do-rag on his noggin and he's happy as a clam.

"Who am I?! I'm Popeye!"

Baby Papoose Xander.

But the hands didn't stay under wraps for long.

Xander with his nurse.

Baby and mamma.

"Uhm, could you turn out the light please? And see if you can shut up that blasted 7 pounder over there in the corner."

Some flippin' sweet pictures of the boy.

We've finally decided on a name. Here's how we figure it will look:

Good thing is, now he will be able to pay for his own schooling... or at least the first three semesters of it.
