Somehow it has already been an entire week since we met our little boy! We are so beyond happy about having him earth-side and home with us. We're finding our balance slowly as a family of four; how much love to give to Henry, how much attention and love to give to Emmet (and Moose, poor guy gets the short end of the stick most of the time), and how much each of us (Dave and I) need to do to keep the other one sane and happy. But at just one week we're already learning little things about Henry and here is a little update on his life and personality so far!
YOU: Scared us the first night home, but have been just fine ever since - are sweet and calm and quiet - don't particularly love baths or being swaddled - weigh 7lbs 7oz, but we are working hard to help you grow - sleep a lot and pretty decently at night! - like laying in your basket and swing - always poop right after I change you into a fresh diaper - fit right in to our family - are very loved.
MAMA: is feeling good and almost recovered - finally is taking her glasses off and facing the other way when sleeping because she is no longer (completely) terrified about what could happen when she sleeps - loves watching your brother interact with you and how much he loves you - loves seeing your little eyes when they are open and the cute little squishy disgruntled faces you make while you are awake - still gets startled sometimes when you make a noise after you've been in your basket for awhile... just a week ago you weren't here!
