Henry & Meleah

Henry hadn't "held" Meleah since the hospital, and even then it wasn't real holding. Today he got his chance. He did great and after I took Meleah from him he wanted to hold her again. Henry loves to talk to her and is right by her side as soon as her eyes are open.

The continuous question is now "What's the baby doing?"

We are home and adjusting to our new routine. Scott has been home from work to help us all settle in and it has been wonderful! Henry has been enjoying it most. He has been Scott's shadow for the last few days. I think that he will have another adjustment when Scott heads back to work tomorrow, but we'll have to see. Here are a few pictures from their time together:

Big Brother

It's me, Henry - or you can call me Big Brother!

Mom let me post on her blog tonight since she's a little busy with my new sister! I went to visit them tonight at the hospital and everyone says my sister looks just like me - only a little smaller!

Here is a picture of my new sister - her name is Meleah Rose:

She was born late this afternoon -- she weighs 8 pounds, 6 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches long.

This is our newest family picture!

Mom let me "hold" my new sister. The giraffe was my present to Meleah!

Welcome Baby Meleah! Love, your Big Brother Henry

Henry has started "smiling" for the camera, but getting a good picture has gotten a lot harder!

Oh, What a Night!

I picked Henry up from Olivia’s yesterday and he had slept 4 ½ hours in the afternoon. He of course was not tired at bedtime. I figured this would be the case, so we played later than normal and even threw in a bath.

Olivia came over at the end of the bath, so Henry started on his “Look at me” routine. He also felt that pajamas were not necessary after the bath. I was only able to get his shirt on. He wasn’t pleased.

Then the zurberting began. Henry thought that was great. He kept asking for it “again!” By the end he would pull up his shirt and just stand next to Olivia until she did it on his belly.

After saying goodbye to Aunt Olivia, Henry ran into the living room, turned on two different musical toys and then proceeded to dance around the living room for the next 10 minutes. It looked funny from the inside and Olivia confirmed it was just as good from outside.

Needless to say sleep did not come easily.
