Hector Tacitus McCollum

From the adventures of bunsy and her tumbleweeds

From the adventures of bunsy and her tumbleweeds
My baby finally came. Not on his own, however. I spent almost two days waiting in the hospital to get admitted to the labor and delivery unit. I was 11 days overdue and this baby was just getting bigger and bigger and I was getting scared. To make a long story short, Hector Tacitus McCollum was born on January 4, 2010 at 7:47 PM. He weighed 4.1 kilos and I don't know how long he was. It's written down somewhere. I didn't have to have a C-section and now I'm home and the real rough stuff is starting.
Barney's Musical Castle right now with Cinci. What a trooper!

All the other boys have been so friendly and excited about baby Hector. Sherman insists that Hector is his new best friend. Cinci loves to kiss him. When I ask Atticus to change into his PJ's he has to change them in the same room as Hector. So things are good for now.

Congrats! He's adorable.

And I totally agree about the Mary Poppins thing--my mother-in-law was here for 2.5 months. It was awesome. All I did was baby stuff. :)

I can attest to Jonathan's wonderful help. He did a fabulous job for the past two weeks at church taking care of 4 boys, by himself no less.

I am so glad to see pictures of Hector. He is beautiful. I want to bring dinner this week. When can I come and bless you with my poor culinary skills?

OCNGRATULATIONS!!!!! He is adorable and perfect in every way. I love his name - Tacitus is particularly awesome.

My best fourth child advice? Breathe deep, often. :)And prioritize. Doing everything is impossible, so focus on the truly important. Which, sometimes, is just letting everything go and enjoying your boys playing.
