Baby may be cross between vampire and those newly hatched velociraptors from Jurassic Park, what with the FEEDING and FEEDING and rarrrry little squawks and howls. I sometimes stick my face in front of his during the frantic rooting, because it amuses me when he attempts to latch on to my nose.

Yeah. So I typed those two sentences awhile ago. Three days, two days, something like that. It's time to admit that entries involving "words" may still be beyond me at this point. You guys like pictures, right?

(Photos ahoy after the jump, so you won't want to kill me over the slow load times.)

A few more from the hospital stay:

PS Things are great. We are great. Breastfeeding (!!!) is great. Still just all around disgustingly happy and great. Seriously could be talked into having a dozen more babies right now, because I am genuinely loving every second of this. Jason is "home" but stuck finishing up one last important project for work that he couldn't delegate to a coworker so I've been essentially going at this whole thing solo, which is also -- no shit, get this -- ALSO GOING GREAT except for the whole "Internet" and "writing" and "seriously, how is this kid hungry AGAIN, OH MY GOD" parts. And Ez does not. like. to. be. put. down. no. no. not. ever, so even during the 45 minutes a day when he is NOT eating or pooping he's pretty much in my arms or strapped to my body in a sling but I better still keep at least one arm wrapped around the sling lest he think for one second that Milks Lady is not within close clamping range.

PPS Luckily, I was able to easily delegate the dumb crap that I do for a living, so please please remember to visit the fine folks at Mamapop who stepped up to cover my posting times AND my hand-picked dream team of guest bloggers over at the Advice Smackdown at AlphaMom. Izzy from IzzyMom, Leah from a girl and a boy and Amanda from Mandajuice filled in for me this week, and soooo many more awesome people will be posting over the next few weeks. Finally, the Advice Smackdown contains 100% actual advice that you might really want to consider taking! For the first time ever! Limited-time offer, come on down before they hand the column back to the scatterbrained crazy lady who's all waxing rhapsodic about poopy newborn diapers!

What. A. Doll. Oh dear. My first is 6 months old and looking at these pix REALLY REMIND ME of how big he is and how maybe I want another one? Not in two years, no, NOW? Perhaps right this second???? Because your newborn is completely delicious, and I can't nibble on his baby cheeks through the computer screen, so maybe I need to make another of my own.

Whoa ovaries! Simmer down!

Suddenly my uterus wants to be full again. And my baby girl is just 8 months old.

I'm so happy to hear how amazing things are going! Congratulations! Ezra is so gorgeous, I just want to chomp him. :)

iambellaluna

Your kids are ADORABLE. Congrats on things going well :)

imstell

Oh, the cuteness! The squishiness! The ears that are still maleable! Just like a puppy only the poops stay contained in diaper! If I still had ovaries they'd be aching about now. Also, isn't it amazing how much easier bfing is the 2nd time around???

Congratulations!

Kate The Great

Go Mommy! Go Boobs! Yay! =D

FishyGirl

You made my ovaries explode. That's one awesomely awesome kid.

(and I found breastfeeding my second and subsequent kids sooooo much easier than the first. srsly. Like, it actually worked and we enjoyed it, unlike the first kid where we made a go of it, but really no one was much happy until she weaned. Enjoy yourself.)

Kate

Oh the hair and the toes and that face and STOP THAT AMY!

He's too cute. I can't take it. I.LOVE.HIM.

Maddie

He is gorgeous, adorable, and precious-and so like Noah. I am so glad that everything is great for you and your little family! Btw-don't you just love prolactin? Mama's happy hormones!

Jenn

He's so CUTE!!! Happy to hear things are going so well!

Pizza...that looks like Two Amy's, yes? Mmmm, must get over there soon--it's been far too long!

Jenny

I'm so happy for you that your boobs work this time! How wonderful for you (and your wee one).

becca

Baby slings rock. Seriously. So glad you and Ezra are rocking the baby-wearing! Am so happy things are going so well. Ezra is so completely adorable. And Noah, too. Ah, what a beautiful family.

Sensibly Sassy

Those eyes! Those wittle feetsies and handsies. Keep the pics coming!

Lora

Oh lord, he makes me want to have another one. Now, if I could just convince my husband!

Donna P

starrynite

I so thought "turtle" before I scrolled down and saw your caption. So adorable.

PS. Do you know the ad I saw at the bottom of the entry was for the Church of Latter Day Saints? How random! did they pick up on the Biblical names or something?!?!?

Michele

OMG, yess, please send more pictures. In fact, I find myself coming back just to see the pictures you've already posted. I miss the baby thing SO MUCH!

imagine1community

I'm glad things are going well and you're so happy. Congratulations!

Rebecca

Ummm too precious :)

Haley-O

MAZEL TOV on the new baby! He's beautiful! And, yes! the nose-rooting! I'm guilty of playing with that, too......

Peggy

I love the pictures of the three men in your life. And happy to hear everything is going great.

Tam.

So, so, so, precious. Totally makes me want another one!

Sasparilla

Absolutely Adorable! You guys make some perfect babies! :)

Alison

Delurking to say, hooray! He's here! Congrats...what a beautiful family!

Rachael

he is so adorable i can't handle it

Susan

Sooo cute. Can't stand it. I'm 11 weeks pregnant, and want to fast forward 7 months so I can have one of these little creatures.

Addie

He is adorable! Congratulations! I think he looks like Jason. It's hard to say; Noah looks just like you, and he looks a lot like Noah, but there's something about him (I can't quite pinpoint what it is, although I haven't actually done a photo by photo comparative analysis or anything...) Maybe it's the dark hair? I don't know. (Both of my kids were born with dark hair like that. With my oldest, when it grew out, it went blond and curly. My youngest's stayed that dark color.) Anyway, congratulations! He's so beautiful!

BOSSY

One week old! It's amazing the growth of personality in a week. Mmmmmm, baby head.
