Welcome Tristan Paul!

I hope you'll all excuse me for not updating the blog earlier, but things have been pretty busy around here. One week and one day ago little Tristan Paul arrived at 5:17 pm. He weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and was 20 inches long. The delivery was easy (after about six minutes of pushing the little guy shot out like a rocket) and uneventful. Little Tristan arrived alert with both eyes wide open. He barely made a sound as the nurses administered his first shot and dose of medicine.

Here's little Tristan his first week home.
After 9 months of waiting to meet this little man, I'm so excited to start to get to know him. So far I've learned that he takes after his dad in both looks and his love for milk (little Tris has an absolutely insatiable appetite). This little guy also is extremely animated and seems to have 101 expressions that make us wonder what he's thinking. The last week has been wonderful (and exhausting) and both Paul and I are looking forward to life now as a family of 3.

Cogratulations! I was wondering if you had had him since I hadn't seen a post in awhile. I am so glad the delivery went well. I hope you are recuperating well and adjusting to life with a sweet newborn. It is amazing to see how small he is. Take lots of pictures because you won't believe he was ever that small otherwise.
Do you call him Tristan? I am sure your parents are just thrilled.
Again, Congratulations!

Thanks for the congrats-Paul and I do call him Tristan, but funny thing, my dad can't come to grips with calling him Tristan, so he calls him T-Paul.

Congratulations! He's adorable! The best baby advice I ever received was from a nurse at the hospital. She said sleep when he sleeps. You can only do that with your first, but it was really helpful. (Not that you asked me for advice) :) Give him a little squeeze for me, I love babies! Congrats again.
