I plan on writing up a post all about how things went down (it's a rather exciting story!) but for now, since he's currently napping at my side and I fear I have limited time before he decides he wants to nurse again, I'll give you the basics and a quick High Five for Friday week review in pictures!
Henry Malcolm Leitch was born on May 16 at 10:15pm. He came out at nearly six pounds and 18 inches long, with blonde peach fuzz and big blue eyes. Little man was more than three weeks early, but as his pediatrician told us this week, "He's healthier than most full term babies I've seen!"
And this is how the week has flown by since he waltzed into our world (FYI, this may be a "High Seven for Friday" post):
|1) Likely at about 10:18pm, right after he was born via C-section. I immediately fell in love with Henry!|
|2) One day old and laying on mama while she recovers at the hospital. That bottom lip!|
|3) First day home and snoozin' with his newborn mitts on to protect his little face - his hands are always near his face!|
|4) Otis is trying to cope with the fact that he is no longer the baby of the family. Look at that sad dog face! Daddy is much happier.|
|5) Fully awake and showing off those big baby blue eyes by day three at home!|
|6) I've been going for (very) brief walks since coming home from the hospital on Monday, but I didn't take Henry with me until he was a whopping five days old. It's so fun to push him around the 'hood!|
|7) Daddy got up early to run before it got too hot in Dallas, so I stayed in bed to snuggle Henry. He's an excellent sleep-in late-bed-mate!|
As always on Fridays, make sure to check out these other fantastic blogs (two of which ALSO welcomed babies in the last week or two! It's such a baby-boom right now, isn't it?) with whom I link up every Friday!
