Intro to Tryg... Again...With Photos this Time.

Here is our son right after he was born, Monday, June 21, 2010 9:28am, and a couple other hospital photos. (Other photos are on Facebook, thanks to Auntie Amy --FYI)
We're happy to be home...a little tired, but overall we're doing really well. In fact, he is already past his birth weight! He gained 7oz in 2 days...apparently most kids gain a half an ounce to an ounce a day. Erik says, "Well, he's a Molin!" Here, I was so worried about his spitting up and concerned he wasn't keeping anything down. Well, I guess I can stop worrying about that anyway.

We love him and can't get enough of him (except maybe at 3am). At least 3 or 4 times a day either Erik or I will stop and look at each other and say, "We're parents!" or "He is just so adorable." We know we might be biased, but we do think he's pretty cute --especially for just going through a birth canal (sorry, squeamish people).

We will try to keep this up to date, but those of you with children know that you don't get a lot of time just to be on a computer. We're doing all we can to keep him fed and all three of us sleeping. We've had help, which has been wonderful. Both Grandmas and some friends have come to help make sure we're fed! Thank you!

Ok, back to feeding Tryg. Love you all. Thanks for all of your prayers!

Newest Addition to the Nursery

Nope, no baby yet! We're eager for him to come now. I'm just two weeks and two days from my due date (yes, I know that due dates don't always mean anything) We're nervous and excited all at the same time. Praying and hoping that everything goes well and that we come home soon with a happy, healthy, (small) baby boy. Don't worry....we'll keep everyone posted when he comes.

But tonight was a fun surprise...we went out to dinner at Old Spaghetti Factory with my family to celebrate my dad's Birthday, which is actually tomorrow, the 9th. He's hoping for a grandson on his Birthday. I told him he'd have to take that up with the boy and that I was fine with the idea. Anyway, after dinner was over we walked them to their van and were surprised with a gift for us! My dad had refinished a dresser for the baby's room and it was in the back of the van! Now, we knew that the dresser was coming but on the way to dinner my dad tricked me by ca
lling me to ask me to bring something from the crib so that he could match the wood color for the dresser. I told him that the crib doesn't really come apart, so I wouldn't be able to do that. Well, it was all a trick because he had already refinished it and it was with him in the van. :)

It looks great and we love it! Thank you very much dad. It matches the crib and the room very well! Oh, and Happy Birthday again!!

More Belly Pics

I just posted these on Facebook, but wanted to share them here too:
Week 33
Week 34
Week 35
We're getting there. I am currently 2 days from week 37 --the week 36 pics are still on the camera. We're getting excited (and nervous) as it gets closer!! When I turned the page of my calendar this morning, it made it all the more real!! We'll keep you posted!

The Latest in the Nursery

Here are some of the latest pictures of the little boy's nursery. It is a work in progress, but we're getting there! His name will go on the wall when we actually decide on it! We will also be adding even more polka-dots on the walls too. (We hope the poor little guy doesn't go bonkers looking at polka dots all the time!!)
Diana made this very nice quilt for us! Love it!
My co-worker, Amanda, made this diaper cake for us.
It was at my Office Shower last week. Very fun!!
Thank you very much to all our friends and family...With the showers we had, we were able to get pretty much everything on our registry and make his room complete! We have been so blessed and are so grateful for everyone's generosity!! Thank you all so much!!
