Again. But is there anything better than a peacefully sleeping baby?

Our First Outing

On Fisher's 1 week "birthday" he and I decided we'd had enough rest and relaxation and wanted to venture to the great outdoors. We packed up the wagon and the three of us sloooowly walked down to Jazz in Ecton Park. Our neighbor Missy had graciously offered to bring us dinner that night, so I suggested we just make it a big picnic at the park.

After an hour and a half Fisher decided he was HUNGRY, and since he isn't exactly eating picnic food yet, we walked back home.

So, if Henry's first outing at 2 weeks was to the track...and now he is crazy about horses, does this mean Fisher might be the next Miles Davis?

The Boys' Room

I'm still getting used to saying that..."the boys"!

Things I Know About You So Far

Oh my goodness you are small!
You sure felt bigger in my tummy...and ribs...and hip bone!

You have brown hair!
Hooray, the household blond vs. brunette count now stands at 3 (including Jack) to 2.

You look a lot like Henry, just with brown hair.

The first thing they said about in the delivery room was that you had long eyelashes and long toes.

You kept making loud noises in the hospital that startled yourself.

You seem to furrow your brow a lot...are you going to be a deep thinker?

You are a hungry boy!

You love using your hands. You keep them around your face a lot, covering your face, in your mouth and reaching out and putting your hand on me or holding my finger.

Sometimes you sound like a puppy and sometimes you sound like a little piglet.

You seem very alert and interested in everything going on around you.

You get a little chin quiver when you are serious about being hungry.

Coming Home

Welcome home sign from Henry.

We were welcomed and greeted at home and in the hospital by gorgeous flowers and gifts.
Thanks Vicki.

And Will.

And USHJA (especially Aunt Whitney) and the whole Gibson Clan!

And Henry!

A "Jack" in the box (and a couple nights of dinners) from Missy.

A very special thanks to Ommy for staying with us for the week and helping us with Henry. (Especially since she just had shoulder surgery!) Most of all for making me the biggest batch of fruit salad!

Ol' Grandad drove up for the day on Sunday to meet Fisher.

Aunt Kake is thrilled to have another nephew to spoil.

Fisher giving a kiss.

My proudest moment as a mother...and maybe in my life so far. TWO boys sleeping at the same time!


More sleeping.

Still more sleeping.

And just a little more sleeping.


Fisher's first gift from Poppy...

...which seems an awful lot like another little boy's first present from Poppy.
