Introducing...

Henry Nicholas

{Brand New.  Photo from Annie Groves photography}

Born May 23rd
11:32 p.m.
8 lb. 2 oz.




It shouldn't have taken me so long to post that Henry was born, but I guess I didn't exactly have a "typical" labor.  I don't know.  I'm no labor expert.  All I know is that it was LONG and REALLY hard.  It took a couple of days to recover from that and we are still getting used to each other, parenting, and the joys of waiting for milk to come in.

Anyway, I am hoping that as we adjust I will be able to write some posts about everything that happened and how we are currently doing.

  6. Ahhhhh, he's perfect. So sweet.
    I know the last thing a new mom wants is advice, but after having two kids that were pretty much forced formula from the get-go in the hospital by staff, they never really nursed good and gave it up all together by 3 months. I refused formula for number three. And guess what, your body does what it's supposed to. Amazing how that works. Baby's little tummy is SO tiny for the first week. They only need a few drops. He's getting what he needs from you mama, even if it doesn't seem like it.
    Good luck, I hope the stress levels aren't unbearable. They'll even out, I promise. First month is the hardest, but when you look back, those snuggle times with a newborn are priceless.
