Well, if everything would have went exactly as planned (and what _ever_ does?), today would have been Toby’s birthday. Per the hospital’s parlance, that makes his “adjusted age”:https://www.medem.com/medlb/article_detaillb.cfm?article_ID=ZZZQEMYUQ7C&sub_cat=26 zero today. The free ride’s over kiddo, time to act like a newborn! 😉
Some vital stats for our ‘newborn’:
* Weight: 8lbs and change (almost a pound gained this week!)
* Height: 18+ inches
* Hair color: black
* Eye color: blue (“for now”:https://chemistry.about.com/cs/howthingswork/f/eyecolor.htm)
So, how about a few recent pics to tide you all over?

(Yeah, I know, I need a haircut – it’s been taken care of!)

h3. His latest chewtoy – Dad!
For whatever reason, he seems to enjoy chewing on Dad. Which is fine with me, ’cause it’s so damn cute! 🙂

h3. Oh, look at all the pretty colors!
He’s also paying more attention to the world around him, seriously checking out anything brightly colored or contrasted around him. Again, damn cute! 🙂

h3. In Retrospect
While the last ten weeks have been at various times stressful as can be, I wouldn’t trade the time together for anything!

lynn. Its Michelle’s Mom—I got to see the pictures and he’s so cute. Wish you were closer so I could hold him. Terry
