First of all, I realized in my effort to record his birth story in the last post, I failed to document Nathan’s stats. He was born on 10/17/2011 at sometime around 5:10am (we sort of had to guess at that based on what time it was when we got in the car!). He weighed in at 7 lbs. even and 18” long arriving exactly a week early. The girls were 8 lbs. 2 oz. and 8 lbs. 4 oz. respectively (keep in mind they were 6 and 11 days late, though). I’m excited to have one start off a little smaller and have a little more time in those sweet newborn clothes.
Nathan had several visitors in his first few days. I didn’t get photos of everyone, so apologies for those I missed:
Our first night at home was not awesome. He didn’t settle until after 3am, but he’s done great all day today. I’m optimistic tonight will be better. We shall see! Regardless, we’re loving every second with this precious little man. I’m trying to soak in every moment.
