Welcome baby Tristan!

Well just like it took you a long time to get here... it has taken me a long time to post your welcome blog!

Tristan Oakley 9lbs 7oz born at 6:26am on August 13.
We are so glad you are here!

We are really enjoying getting to know you. And watching Shayla be such a helpful big sister.
Today I was canning peaches while both my sweeties were napping and you woke up first and nursed and then were laying contentedly on your blanket. After a short while Shayla came wondering in, just waking up from her nap. You were getting a little fussy and I asked Shayla if she could get you your soother. First she was just drinking some water and ignoring you and then as you started to cry a little louder she put down her water.
'Ok baby, ok, ok, ok baby.' She says as she heads to the living room to get your 'sucky'!
She then got it in your mouth and you quieted down and she lay down beside you on the blanket. It was so sweet!

So far you have been pretty content. Eating, sleeping and pooping! I guess we'll see what a few more weeks of age brings!

Here are some pictures of your big arrival. Which took about half the time of Shayla's... thank you Tristan. ;) (Although pushing your head out... ouch! I screamed... apparently very loudly as your father told me to shush. To which I shouted... DO NOT TELL ME TO SHUSH! At your one week appointment I told Dr. Edwards this and, after measuring your head circumference, he told me to tell your father I had every right to scream! Thank you Dr. E!)

How lovely! What a wonderful big sister Tristan has!
I remember that scream... it scared me a little bit and I wanted to make the pain (and the scream) stop too! Did Dr Ed measure the circumfrence of your head too? It came from somwhere!
Love you :)

Welcome Tristan.
Lucky you -- to have such a helpful, caring and loving big sister. Nice work Shayla!
I like the pictures Kimberly.
Sometimes a scream helps us feel better and releases the body tension.... It definitely released Tristan!
Love you all. Mom :)
