Say What?

We had Michael circumcised on Monday....so traumatic. I hate it. Our doctor was of the old method.......I much prefer the plasti-bell version where there is no AFTER CARE (meaning no changing of the petroleum gauze every time he needs a diaper change) .

The doctor asked if we wanted to keep the foreskin. Wha? I apologize to anyone who does...but WHAT?



Michael's "bilikin corn" fell off today (I can't correct how Penny pronounces it...its so cute) . We are excited to bathe him, though we're going to wait a few more days because of his peder stuff done on Monday.

I'm not keeping the cord either.....I find keeping that kind of stuff gross. Just saying........

I'm sorry what!? People keep the foreskin? Ewwww, no one ever asked us that. Weird.

did you plant the placenta under a tree? somethings just don't make a lot of sense to us.

The placenta is still in the freezer. We haven't decided what to do with it yet.

actually, Adam has a cool story about burying placentas under a tree, apparently some cultures in Africa do it and swear that the tree reflects how that person is doing throughout it's life even when that person is far away. But the foreskin...really? I can't get over that.

um, gross! Although Julia has all the umbilical cords from her kiddos (BARF JULIA, BARF!) I guess some people just aren't as grossed out by stuff like I am :)
