More Birth Day Pictures

Grandma & Grandpa M. came to visit Henry twice today. They are watching Isabel while we are at the hospital, so they all came together today. They bought hm a cute little drummer outfit as a birthday present. Isabel is excited to have grandma & grandpa with her today (they took her out for lunch & on a field trip to Cabelas) but she sure misses mommy & daddy.

This is Henry's first sponge bath. Since the bath didn't occur until after his circumcision (we did a Plasti-bell circumcision) we had to do a sponge bath, which is just fine.

Our friends Beth & Carrie came to the hospital to visit us. We are leaving in the morning, only staying one night, so we were surprised anyone was able to come visit us at all. It was very nice.
We also recieved a beautiful bouquet of flowers from our friends Lori, John & Rachael. That was a nice surprise too. I have such wonderful friends who absolutly spoil me.

Just read your post and wanted to say that you made a smart choice circumcising, it is cleaner and healthier.
I know if boys aren't done at birth its pretty common for them to need to be circumcised later in life. My brother needed to be circumcised later in life and I don't want to risk putting my son through that. Plus, I have yet to meet a single man that wasn't happy to be circumcised, but a lot of uncircumcised guys seem to wish they had been snipped.
I have done a lot of research on circumcision and thought you might find these links helpful:
