Hill's B.F.F.

My sweet friend Marsha was kind enough to let me come over and practice baby care 101 with her 1 week old little man Pearce.  Pearce is precious.  He's absolutely tiny and makes me glad I'm already pregnant so I don't have to wait 9 months to have one of my own.  All that instant gratification stuff again.

Pearce is Hill's B.F.F.  I thought maybe when I was holding Pearce that Hill would give a swift kick or nudge to say "What Up, Man?" but he didn't.  I'm sure down the road they will have years of swift kicks for each other to look forward to though.

I sure hope that Marsha does not get annoyed with me when I'm calling her every 30 minutes asking for help.  Last night I fed Pearce and was suppose to burp him after 1/2 an ounce ....ummm 1 1/2 oz. later I forgot!  He was so fast that I was sure he hadn't had that much, but he did.  He forgave me and burped, but I felt bad that I didn't follow the rules.  I'd be the first person to make a week old baby's stomach burst from too much formula.  So much to learn, so much to learn. I probably made Marsha nervous because I was so awkward in the whole feeding/burping/holding process.  I'm going to blame it on my body.  I am very uncomfortable in my body right now, can't get comfortable therefore everything is awkward for me.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
So without further a due I present to you Steven Pearce and his big sister Swayze!  I for sure need Swayze around when Hill comes, she is so helpful!

Look at that little grin!

He's so tiny and sweet!

Pearce, Marsha & Swayze. Too cute!

You are too funny! Of course you can call me if you have questions. I thought you did great with Pearce--he didn't seem to mind, did he? It's going to be easier than you think--especially with your own. God gives us these maternal just know what to do. I wondered if Hill realized he was visiting his prearranged BFF. I can't wait until he gets here so they can play together!
