Meanwhile, I was reading posts backwards and posted backwardsly! Boy babies are wonderful. Keep the pee pee pointed down and the teepees do actually work once you get peed on once and remember to do it.

I was, however, terrified by what was under that post-bris wrap. I made my husband do everything with it until it fell off because I couldn't bear it. I thought I was going to pass out at the bris, and then again when I looked at the gauze turning black (as apparently it is supposed to do) after...

Anyway, mazal tov. I've loved your posts and wish you congratulations on pushing that kid out!
