Bye Bye Eddy & The Little Things

2 Oct

We had to wave bye bye to Eddy on Friday as he goes on to a new home, it was a hard decision, but for E’s safety and Eddy’s happiness, it was the right decision. So I (Jessica) will be taking over the reigns from Eddy on writing our posts. So without further…this week’s the little things…

The Little Things

14 Aug

One of the blogs our family follows is Coffee and Cabernet…one of the features is “The Little Things” and I am going to try my hardest to make it a weekly feature for us here at Eddy’s Butt….so without further ado, the inaugural “the little things”!!!

Brothers From Another Mother

Whenever Mom and Dad get out the camera to take pics of ‘E’ I can’t help but try to get in them. I make ‘E’ pretty happy, so this was me sneaking into the latest shoot!!

 

It’s a Boy!

Yesterday my brother arrived!

Ethan Leonard Lewis! He came on January 17, 2011 at 7:38AM. He weighed 7 lbs 10 ounces and measured 20 1/2 inches. He is healthy as can be and just perfect (and not as big as the doctors were anticipating)!

Grandpa Lewis and Cousin Sophie took me to Bow Wow Lounge to play so my brother can spend some time with Mom and Dad. Today was a big day at the hospital, my brother was circumcised but he made it through like a champ! I’m pouring over photographs so send me any good ones you have. I think my brother is almost as photogenic as I am, though I’ve never had a professional photo shoot. Below are links to the amateur photos as well as a photo journal where I will post a photo each day for the first year of my brother. If you visit my brother please give him a hug and a kiss from me, apparently I’m not old enough to visit him in the hospital.

A letter to my brother

13 Jan

Dear Baby Lewie,

We are all anxious for your arrival. We know Mom was 3cm dilated and 50% effaced on Tuesday and has been walking around a lot and sitting on her exercise ball since then. It would be helpful for a lot of people’s schedules if you made your appearance today or tomorrow versus your scheduled arrival of Monday, after the 11:30pm Sunday induction. Okay?? I can’t wait to meet you!

Your patiently awaiting brother,

Eddy

P.S. And now I’ll go sniff my butt

Waiting Patiently for my Brother

This past week, we played the waiting game with my brother.
Mom and Dad went to the doctor last Wednesday, and Mom was 2cm
dilated. Mom’s blood pressure also measured 140/90 in the office
and there were trace amounts of protein in her urine. The doctor
sent Mom and Dad to triage to further get checked out. After taking
some more samples and monitoring both Mom and My brother the nurses
sent Mom home and said everything looked great! According to
American Pregnancy, my brother is continuing to grow and working on
the layer of fat underneath his skin. This is an important part of
his ability to regulate his body temperature once he is born. He is
also beginning to form new skin cells which will replace older skin
cells. Mom started maternity leave on Thursday so we’ve been able
to hang out all day! Mom has been knitting And trying to keep
herself occupied as much as possible. Friday she left me to go hang
out with Caymus and Barb; I was pretty sad! Saturday Mom and Dad
had breakfast with Barb and Len and hung out in the burbs before
heading to Costco. Amanda and Michael and Kristin and Billy came
over for dinner and Amanda made a great pork tenderloin! It was
delicious. Sunday Mom and Dad met Mary B, Sam, Barb, Len, Caroline,
Mike, Lila, Mary HT, Jeff and Hope for a yummy breakfast at Ina’s!
Despite the Ginger pancakes, no baby yet! Mom and Dad had Kristin
over for steak on the grill last night. As Mom and I gear up for
another week of maternity leave sans baby, I’m about to go down for
my morning nap and sniff my butt! Until next time!!

Don’t forget to vote on my brother’s size and when he will arrive from yesterday’s post!!!

Home Stretch Baby!

I’m not sure about everyone else but I can tell my brother is going to be here soon! Mom has started staying home with me which is great to get some quality bonding time before my brother gets here. As anxious as I am to meet him it seems like there are a lot of other people almost as excited. I just have two questions for the rest of you When and How Big? (Leave your name and prediction in the comments and the winner(s) will get a big wet one from me!) While you all ponder the questions, I’ll continue resting up for the big day and of course sniffing my butt.

30 more days!

My brother’s due date is in 30 days. I have been preparing by napping!!
