Baby Update

It has been a few days since my last post and I have so much to share. Here is my best effort of getting things up-to-date. We have been thankful to have many guests in our home recently to help welcome our baby boy. We have recorded every ones visit by getting them to record a few words in Hunt's guest book and getting a picture with him. We make sure that each guest leaves with a bubble gum cigar as well. Jeremy and I have also made two trips to the pediatrician for follow-up visits checking on Hunt's jaundice. Both times baby boy got his heel pricked and did not like it. At the visit last Friday Hunt weighed 5 lb 14 oz. So we imagine that he is close to birth weight now; especially since the Dr. put Hunt and I on a every two hour feeding schedule! Jeremy and I get to sleep a good bit at night, usually getting up once or twice to feed. We are so happy to be parents of such a precious boy. We have managed pretty well but are thinking that all this 'what seems to be ease of parenting' is the calm before some storm. We heard so many people gripe and complain about parenthood while I was pregnant, but we are having a blast sharing our day with Hunt and learning more about him.

Our first family stroll. The lens got hazy but at least the moment was captured.

We had my step-brother's fiance came to take newborn pictures at our home. I didn't want to go to a photo studio this early but I wanted some good looking pictures for announcements. We took a few of our own as well.

I love these two!

I am posting more pictures on our online photo album. The link is on the right of our blog page.
