Growing Boy

Elijah had an appointment today to have his circumcision done. I was really nervous because I didn't want to see him unhappy. When we got there they were running really late and we waited for a long time. This was hard because he got really hungry and you aren't allowed to feed them a few hours before the circumcision and I had fed him quite a few hours earlier by now. They don't usually allow the parents to go in the rooms with the baby while they are doing the procedure, but they let Joel go in. I was ok waiting in the room and having Joel go. Joel said the he did really well and didn't cry at all. They gave him some sugar water while giving him the anesthetic and that made him really happy. Before the procedure they weighed him and he is at 8 pounds 1 ounce. The say they are usually back to their birth weight at 10 days and he is a pound over!!!! He is already growing so fast. When we got home we gave him a bath. This is one of his favorite times.
