Just some random shots from the hospital

I actually really enjoyed my stay at the hospital. Good Samaritan in San Jose took great care of Boyd, myself, and even my many visitors! They gave me free room service whenever I wanted it, and had a stocked pantry for all my family that came by.

While I was being induced, I was kinda jealous of Q, that he could have all the yummy treats in the pantry, while I was only allowed to sip on 1/2 a styrofoam cup of apple juice! For 13 hours! Q told me about some "Otter Pops" in the pantry freezer, but the nurses would not let me have one until after the delivery. So immediately after, while the doctor is stitching, and I am nursing, all I could think about was that delicious, icy cold, Otter Pop! Q brought it to me, and the nurse said, "wow, you are already multi-tasking!" I had 2 Otter Pops, 2 Popsicles, 2 strawberry Jellos, and 3 cups of juice within 30 mins of Boyd's arrival!

Burping my cute guy!

Settling him into his vibrating chair, and man does he love that binky!

Me Loving Boyd, and Boyd loving his blanket

2 days old, and already holding his pacifier in!

Ok, he still needs some practice!

It was so fun talking to you on the phone today! You are truly my hero for all that you went through!! Could you ever have imagined that he could be so beautiful. You both are truely blessed. It was so neat that Emma and Boyd were born less then 24 hours apart! Maybe they will be kindred spirits one day!! We love you guys and treasure our friendship. Good luck with the days ahead!

Q and Shelly, we are just ga-ga over all of the pictures. Not only do you have the most handsome baby boy, but you are just the sweetest new parents. We especially love the picture of you two standing next to Boyd in his car seat with his little fingers wrapped around each of your hands. We love you so much!

Oh he is such a doll. I can't believe how hungry you were after delivery! You are a crazy girl! By the way, Happy Birthday. Hope Boyd and Q have been treating you well. My kids are so anxious to see their new little cousin. Hopefully we will see you at Thanksgiving. Are you guys going to Downey?
