Big week for Hunter

This was a big week for Hunter:  He was circumcised on Thursday, and he had a hip ultrasound today.  Everything went well on both accounts. The circumcision was quite traumatic, both for Hunter and Mom & Dad.  It seemed as though he was in excruciating pain - except that he quit crying the moment we gave him some sugar water.  And, he only cried when the sugar water was gone.  All I can say is thank God I don't remember my circumcision!  And, thank God, he won't remember his!  (I know, I know.  TMI!) As for the hip ultrasound, our pediatrician recommended it due to the fact that Hunter was in a breach position at birth.  The procedure, which was over in less than 15 minutes, looks at the hip joints to make sure the sockets formed correctly.  If a fetus spends too much time in a breach position (folded so that their feet are up by their head), the hip joint can form a weak socket for the head of the femur.  In Hunter's case, everything looked good - just like the rest of him!
