Titus Slade Touchstone
Born October 29, 2012 at 7:53am at 7lbs 13oz and 19.5 inches long.
We took you home on Thursday Nov. 1st after lunch. Your big brother Tabor was so excited to see you. He kept wanting to kiss you. He also wants to high five you & give you "blow up knuckles" all the time.
You've pretty much been on a schedule since day 1. You eat every 3 hours like clock work. You've gone 4-5 hours at night between feedings (thank you) and have made it pretty easy so far.
We can't imagine life without you already.
You funny/interesting quirks so far:
Your witching hour seemed to be between 7:30-1:30am. You didn't cry the entire time. You fussed like you're trying to escape your swaddle or cried for a sec and then went silent as soon as we got out of bed to check on you. We had 2 nights of this and then happened to leave the light on which has seemed to remedy this issue. The light. Are you kidding!!! We will leave it on though if that's what you want. Now it is only a night light which you seem to be happy with.
You were allergic to disposable diapers. We had to go straight to cloth. We planned to wait a few weeks but instead you now look like a sumo wrestler because they are so big on you. We figured out you can wear Pampers Sensitive Swaddlers so hopefully when we take you out of the house now you won't look like a Sumo baby! ha
I had to include this photo because it's a picture of Tabor beeping your nose. He loves beeping your nose, high fiving you, giving you knuckles, tickling your feet, rubbing your head and holding you in his arms. We can't wait to see you both playing together. You guys are going to be such great buddies. Thank you God for these beautiful boys. Thank you for a healthy and precious little baby Tabor. He has been the perfect addition to our little family. We are so blessed.
We have also been incredibly blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. Thank you to everyone that has made us meals, kept Tabor, prayed for us, sent us flowers and gifts, changed diapers and came by to meet our new Titus. We thank God for each and every one of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
