OMG so cute

First Bath

This morning we gave Connor his first real tub bath. His umbilical cord fell off last night, so up until then, we had just been sponging him off. We were a little nervous, as we had heard mixed reviews of how babies feel about the first real bath. I would say it was a success! This time around it definitely took two of us to hold him up and get him clean. He seemed to really relax in the water, then was mad for a quick minute when he got out, and happy again as he was bundled into a cozy hooded towel. Some pics:

Connor Graham Vaughn!

We had our kid!

We haven't really talked too much about Dana's pregnancy on this blog, but it came to an end last Friday, March 20th at 3:37 am, after a 26-hour labor - Dana is a rock star! Here is a pic of early labor when we were still at home. Our doula took some pictures of the labor at the hospital but we haven't gotten those from her yet. When we do I really doubt they will end up on this blog!

Connor came out weighing 8 lbs 4 ozs and 20 inches long.

We've been home with him since Monday, and are finally starting to feel like we've adjusted to the new routines that come with a first child.

Expect to see a lot more of him here!

The Zoo

We spent yesterday afternoon at the zoo with Tom and his parents. Dylan caught some great video of a rolling baby orangutan and some wrestling baby gorillas:
