Well He's finally here. It's been a week and 1 day, born on Sept. 28th at 10:04am. Weighing in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and 21 in. He is a perfect and healthy baby. We've been so blessed. He eats and sleeps very well and, so far, rarely cries. When we left the hospital he had dropped to 6lbs. 7 oz. but at his 1 week checkup he was already up to 6 lbs. 13 oz.
Alexa was a little standoffish when she first saw him and she wouldn't touch him or come see me. But later that night she was very excited to hold him and give him kisses. She kept telling everyone "I'm a Big Sister". Bringing him home was another new experience she wasn't so sure about, but she's doing a lot better now. She'll get her little step stool and peek in his bassinet to check on him. She's still trying to remember his name (guess that was a downside to not picking one until after he was born). This morning she called him her little brother then asked, "what's his name?". Then after I told her what it was she said her little phrase again and inserted "Wincoln" for "little brother". (Her "L's" are all "W" sounds - which is really cute when she says Lincoln's name.) She is very observant and smart.
It's been so wonderful being able to bring our baby home from the hospital and experiencing all these "firsts" with our second. The Lord truly has blessed us with two beautiful and healthy children. And also will so much love and support from family and friends. What would we do without all of you I don't even know?:)
I created a Picasa album for Lincoln with a link to the right of this blog:) Enjoy. There are several pic's that are very similar. If you want to see pic's you can't be picky, but sorry for the duplicates anyway.:)
