Evan was about 6 lbs 3 oz when he finally came home. He had a Chicco Keyfit. LOVED that seat!! I wish I had with my older children because it was such a great seat.

I just realized how close our due dates/delivery dates are for our sons! My due date was 2/7/07 and Evan arrived on 12/4/06.

Evan had one dose of the rotavirus vaccine, but has not had any since.
