Here J is putting him in the carseat for the first time. He left the hospital weighing 7.9 pounds. He is my smallest baby by a full pound.
The kids like to make sure he has his “lovie”. I can’t get enough of those little newborn smirks.
The photo below was taken at his first pediatric appointment. They had him come in for a second visit just to check weight and he is now 7.14.
E is a natural when it comes to breast feeding. We haven’t had any problems at all, but when the lactation consultants at the hospital asked, I admitted his biggest obstacle is just waking up or staying awake. He is now 11 days old and still sleeps almost constantly. This is a rare photo of him with his eyes open, and you get to see that handsome dark hair of his too.
Before E was born we searched at several stores for an orange hat because a lot of the clothes we gravitated towards had orange in them. Our orange hat search was fruitless, but at the hospital they have volunteers that donate knit hats for each baby and E’s was ORANGE! One of the nurses even commented on his hat because they give many different colors, but she hadn’t seen an orange one before. We think they made pumpkin hats for October which was perfect for my October birthday boy.
