One Week!

We cannot believe that our sweet Henry is already one week old. Carl and I feel like it has been easier than we expected but that is not saying it is easy. The hardest part is making sure that Evie feels special. I am spending all the time I can with her when Henry is sleeping. It makes me a little teary wondering how Evie feels right now. She was our entire world for 2.5 years and now there is a little baby here to share her parents with all the time. Evie loves her brother so much and is a wonderful big sister. One of my friends told me to think about things from Henry's perspective that he will never get the attention that Evie has received. We both agreed that is actually a good thing.

Henry is such a calm baby and rarely cries for more than a few moments. I sure hope he stays this way! He spends most of his day eating and sleeping. Although, he looks around tracking all the noise in our house. He is sleeping for three hour stretches and is finally going longer between feedings. I was practically operating a 24 hour buffet during the first few days. He likes his swing, being swaddled and resting on his side. We already love him so much and are so grateful to have two healthy, happy children. Be sure to notice Henry's part. Carl washed is hair and had a little fun styling his hair.


  1. Love his hair!! And I think he looks like carl in these pics. I'm so glad things are going well for y'all!!

  2. He's so alert! I'm glad he's sleeping for you because he definitely seems to be soaking everything in. He looks like an Ipock to me! :)

  3. Henry is so precious! I hope you guys are doing well and adjusting! You are doing a great job with the updates!
