Introducing....The Baby Bear (also to be known as Murph)

Murph arrived a few days early, proving to be more of his father's child than my own, since I am never early for anything. But definitely has my nose and ears. He has the Chief's blue eyes for now, but somehow I think they might turn brown.

He's such a good little guy. He wakes up in a good mood and just looks around smiling. His personality is just so mellow. Let's hope it stays that way!

Last night we tried to add his handprints to his baby book. I now understand why the nurses at the hospital didn't do this at the same time they printed his little feet. We now have a black smear where his hand print should be. The worst part was that he likes to put his hands in his mouth. At one point before I could get all the ink wiped off he had this little smudge right below his nose that made him look a little too much like a former German ruler! I know his dad and I both have quite a bit of german heritage, but that was a bit much!

Awesome! Glad to hear he has such a good personality, too. I'm with ya -- hope he stays that way. Babies are so unreliable. :)
