More Henry

Henry is home!! I am soooo glad to be out of the hospital and back with my family! Henry is doing well, and we are adjusting to having 3 kids now. Below are some pictures of the first days of Henry's life. So far, in addition to looking different than his siblings did at birth, his personality seems to be not quite so laid back as the other two either. :) He is a fussier, more temperamental baby and we're also dealing with what we think is a possible reflux issue. Pray for us as we get to know our son and seek to meet his needs along with our other two. Enjoy the pics, I'm sure there will be more in the days to come!

Henry Arrives...!!

Well, Katherine gave me instructions to place some pictures of our new little guy on the blog, so here goes. Henry Middleton was born today, January 23rd, @ 4:08 p.m., weighing in at 8 lbs. 12.7 oz, and 21 inches long. Katherine and Henry both did fantastic, and the birth could not have gone more smoothly. We are not sure who he looks like, but Katherine is elated that at least one out of our three children has brown hair like her! I think he looks a little like his mommy too!

Enjoy the pics. More to come in the next few days.

The countdown begins

Hello all-

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures to post. I have been using the last few weeks to clean my house, prepare food for the freezer, run last minute errands, visit the doctor, etc... all in preparation for a new baby who's arriving soon. For those of you who don't know, we are heading to the hospital this Friday (1/23) to induce labor if he's not here by then. My due date is Sunday, and since my doctor is on call all w/e it just makes sense to go ahead and do it Friday so he can be there all w/e to check on me. We were both hoping for a natural start to labor but it looks as if that is not the plan :) Either way we're ready and looking forward to meeting our son. I have a feeling this will be the last post before he arrives. I (or Matt) promise to update as soon as he gets here, be that tomorrow or Friday. Until then,...happy MLK day!

Yes, I'm still here, still very pregnant, and playing the waiting game. (A game I'm not very good at I might add.) Other than the count down to becoming a family of five, we're all just trying to stay well around here. Last week it was fever and pink eye for Annely Blake, this week I've been fighting some terrible infection that seems to have settled in my throat. Matt made the comment today, "wouldn't it be nice to have one week where all four (soon to be five) members of our family are well?" I said, "yeah, we can dream, right? :)) Anyways, I'll leave you with a few pictures of the past week or two....gotta keep the grandparents happy, right? Until next time, we'll be here just waiting.....

the house Matt and Will constructed with Will's lincoln log set from Christmas Will and AB watching out the window at the yard crew across the street....how cute?!

Annely Blake with a bow in her hair (finally!) I thought she looked particularly grown up here- sniff, sniff.
