2 weeks with Turbo

The biggest adjustment we've all had to make with the sweet little man in our lives, happened last Friday when he got circumcised.  
He went from being an easy going baby that didn't require much (other than a warm blanket and a hot meal every four hours) to a rather fussy baby.  For the past two days his hot meal is required every few minutes from about noon to... Well, tonight it's going on 9:30.  

He's not hungry really.  He just wants his mama and to suck.  I REALLY would like him to find a pacifier... But have yet to find one he doesn't start gagging with.  
I love my son and if this was written before noon each day, you'd hear about his sweet smile and beautiful/handsome features.  He's so precious!!!  Such a charmer....  
He started sleeping better after about two weeks.  He went for 8 hours one night...  

The kids absolutely love him.  Buttercup has nicknamed him with an -ey (or -ie) at the end of his name.  She gets his name right 100% of the time though.  

The rest of them still call him turbo, or -like me- call him his older cousin, Pax (almost 100% of the time).  I'm catching myself now before it comes out, so he won't be little baby pax forever.  It's kinda strange.  
School is starting to wind down.  Most of the schools are getting out for the summer this Friday.  My kids still have another 12 days.  
Danke's german parents are coming on the 6th of June.  They will stay in the U.S. for almost a month seeing what our great state has to offer.  
We will really miss having her in our family.  She has been a big help especially the past few months.  She also is a good friend and example for the youngers.
