We got ourselves a shrimpy baby.

 
By Mike at October 17, 2009 - 21:14

We went to Eli's first well check the other day.  He was doing really good, but he was measuring small... compared to Beau.  He was only in the 90th percentile in all of his measurements.  Just a tiny lil guy...

1 week measurements:
Weight: 9lb 4.5oz
Height: 21in
Head Circumference: 38cm

These first two weeks have gone by pretty fast.  It's been nice having the grandma's in town to help us.  Not having to clean or cook makes taking care of a newborn a lot easier.  I like this pic of Nana trying to get Eli to sleep while watching Beau.  Beau doesn't quite have an inside voice... 

Beau is warming up to Eli.  He's even started hugging and kissing him which is pretty darn cute. 

Uncle Hank made an official bockstock request in the shoutbox to see a Beau and Eli pic right next to each other.  I was trying to get a pic of Eli in the same clothes/position as one of the pics we have of Beau so it would be easier to compare, but we're lucky if we can get a picture of Eli before he decides to pee or poop all over his clothes.  I just don't see how it's normal for a baby to poop 15 times a day... craziness.  Plus I'm pretty sure he holds in the pee until I take off his diaper.  He likes to see which random object I grab to try and deflect the pee when he starts shootin it at my face... I'll be glad when he gets tired of that game.  Anywho... here's a pic of Beau and Eli with fish lips around the same age.  I'll try to post another side by side later.

I think it's time for bed.  Hopefully I can get some good rest and forget about those stupid longhorns...  More pics in the October album.

So good to be home.

 
By Mike at October 10, 2009 - 21:56

We got to come home from the hospital on Tuesday.  I'm not a huge fan of the hospital stay, so I was glad when they didn't make us stay the full three days.  Charlene is feeling pretty good and not having to take too many pain meds.  Eli is doing good also.  He's just in that early stage where all he does is eats, sleeps, and poops... and man does he poop.  I don't remember Beau pooping 15 times a day.  He also likes to mess with me by waiting until just after I put on a fresh diaper... 

I added some pics in the October 2009 album.  Eli sure is a handsome boy.

 

Beau's been a good helper.  Gingy taught him how to crack eggs so that he could help some with the cooking.  Here he is making some banana nut bread.

 

Plus he's super excited about his lil bro at the moment.  I'm not sure he's quite figured out that he's sticking around for a while...

 

Eli is sleeping, so I should be sleeping too.  More pics later...

ELI!

 
By Mike at October 5, 2009 - 23:02

Eli decided he didn't want to wait until the scheduled c-section, so he went ahead and got things moving this last Saturday.  Eli Vance Bockus was born at 12:56a.m. on October 4th!  He weighed in at 9pds 0.2oz and his height was 20in. He came out screamin...

Charlene started having contractions about 10mins apart on Saturday night.  We had already put Beau down for the night, so we really didn't want to wake him up for the trip to the hospital just in case it was false labor. While I was arranging to have somebody come over to watch Beau (Thanks Rick and Gordon!), the labor quickly intensified.  By the time we got the hospital around 11:30, Charlene was already dilated 4cm.  They moved pretty fast and got Eli out of there before we had time to think "Oh crap, we're having a baby tonight!"  The stay in the hospital has gratefully been uneventful.  Charlene and Eli are both doing really well, and we're hoping that we get to come home on Tuesday. 

I think we got ourselves another handsome boy.  I actually think he looks a lot like his older brother.

 There's some more pictures in the Eli's Birthday album.  I'm sure I'll be posting more once we get settled in at home.
