To Purell or not to Purell

Will has invested in several travel size bottles of purell to hand off to unsuspecting friends, relatives and anyone that even considers wanting to touch Finn. Up until last week he hasn't really had the opportunity to do this and now that this is public and Will will no doubt be reading this, I will now get in trouble for admitting that I haven't been enforcing this purell rule on my friends. Finn seems healthy and he's also getting mamma juice so hey I figure he needs to build up a little immunity.

Well last Saturday night Finn was the main attraction when the two big bosses (uh, the owners of the company for which my husband is gainfully employeed - at least for now) were in town and invited us to fancy dinner along with Will's boss and wife (Jerry and Patty). These two guys who carried at least an extra suitcase full of diapers and wipes from the US and whatever else we had wanted shipped. This company rocks but anyway...

As we were saying our hellos, the hands started waving to hand over the baby...as I start to pass Finn to John (THE OWNER), Will clears his throat and pulls out the purell from his breast pocket. I'm dying inside as he (albeit politely) asks John to please use a little purell first. My husband sure has some big cojones that is for sure. Thank goodness everyone let out a roar of laughter and then shook their heads ... "yup, first time parents - you'll get over that Will now give me the kid!" Ah, they took it all in stride and Finn seemed to enjoy being passed around - it only took about an hour and a half of mama bear not holding her child to say gimme back ... and that I know I'll get over soon as well! :)

This Saturday he'll be 4 weeks! Amazing! Despite his grumpy bear time sometime between 5-8p he's definitely a keeper and mama bear is slowly figuring out some new tips and tricks to keep him happy. I haven't gotten as far as having a bow in my hair and dinner on the table when Will gets home from work, but I'm working on it. :) ha ha

Jay was exactly like Will. Even with baby #2. For me, as long as they don't touch her hands or face, we don't have to wash or use Purell. I just don't want to risk her getting sick, especially with cold/flu season starting. Sick babies are no fun. Send more pics! What is he going to be for Halloween?

Oh too funny! I know I'm a little late on responding to this but still found it hilarious. You go Will - keep it up for as long as you can!
