Today Eldon is 11 days old. He sleeps really well throughout the night, only waking up twice before we get up with Cory in the morning. He is really funny to watch as he sleeps because he is very animated. He coos ans grunts and pulls all kinds of faces, smiles one minute to scowls the next. 
He had his first doctors appointment last friday and he is back to his original birth weight of 7 pounds. The doctor said everything looks great. He's eating so much better and is starting to stay awake longer between naps. He looks around a lot and seems very alert. He has been such a blessing, Cory and I couldn't be happier.

This was Eldons first bath with Daddy. He didn't like the cold very much but loved the rub down afterwards. 
He is such a cuddle bug. It doesn't matter who he's with, as long as they are snuggling him.

He's HERE!

The official arrival of Eldon Charles McKinnnon is February 8, 2008 at 5:12 am. The dates on the pictures unfortunately are wrong, but we didnt realize it until it was too late. He came out at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and 20 in. long. 

But he's finally here! And he is so sweet. He's not much of a cryer, hopefully he stays that way. He loves being cuddled and loved on. His favorite place to sleep is on Daddy's chest. Thank heaven he looks like his dad, practically perfect in every way. 


Both Cory and I are doing well, tired, but good. We're just so excited that Eldon is finally here. Especially Ashlee because now she can roll over at night, well, kind of.

Cory and I got back from Utah last Saturday night. We went up there for an interview at the University of Utah, one of the physical therapy programs Cory applied to. So fingers crossed for something good!
Eldon is due anytime now. I am officially in the first stages of labor, meaning he's dropping and I am dialating. We can't wait to see our little man!
Right now it's just been work and school for Cory and baby, baby, baby for me. Everything is going.
