Lesson 177: Babies Grunt

I have heard a phrase that common knowledge is not common. Just like with pregnancy, there are so many things about babies that nobody mentions.  Did you know that babies grunt when they sleep? Ted spends about 70% of his sleeping time grunting and moaning to the point where we can't tell if he is awake or just being noisy. Then I read an article on how to get sleep with a newborn. One suggestion was to have baby sleep in a different room because babies are loud sleepers. I had no idea. (Ted is grunting away right now as I write this). Below is a picture of Ruby relaxing.

Lesson 176: The New Wife's Guide to Puppies and Husbands... AND BABIES!

May 28 at 7:54 AM we welcomed Ted into our family. A note to all girls who have never had a C-section.... it is weird! I am sure everyone's experience is different but here was mine...
I was numbed up, they drew up the curtain between me and my lower half (during this time I was terrified from just the thought of what was going on on the other side of the curtain)., Tyler sat next to me and held my hand and we just sat there talking. Then a few minutes later (and it really felt like only a few minutes) we hear crying and tada! You are now a mom.
So here he is....

The dogs have had to do some adjusting. Ruby has been nicknamed Ted's official babysitter because she makes sure to be present at every diaper change, bath, and tummy time.
