Bris, Redux

Today was The Baby's bris, which is the ritual circumcision done on the 8th day of the boy's life. The bris is not my favorite part of the whole newborn experience, because anything that involves surgery and my son's junk makes me nervous. The whole thing went off without a hitch, all thanks to an incredibly large cast of characters starting with Grandma, The Wife, and Aunt M. We had a huge crowd, around 50-something people, in the house for the ceremony and the feeding afterwards. We ran out of bagels pretty quickly, and the Mac and cheese was a big hit.

The boys had a nice time, evidenced by The Boy chasing C around the house for about forty-five minutes straight. Little Bear was extremely over-stimulated by the end of the day, and he didn't respond well to the end of his nap. He didn't even want to go on a walk after his nap, so instead I took The Baby. He had his first experience at Dunkin Donuts.

At night, I took The Boy and met my father at Barnes and Noble. The By played with trains and some other toys while we hung out and caught up on life. We went to Panera Bread for a late dinner, and The Boy exhibited his cuteness for the world to see.

I intend to do a catch-up on the boys' milestones and quirks, s soon as I catch my breath. It's been a heck of a busy week, and theext couple of dys aren't any better - The Wife has an interview on Monday, and we also have an appointment to get The Boy's new ear molds for his hearing aids.
