Week 2

8 days old: 8 lbs. 4 oz.

Hamilton weighed 7 lbs. 5.8 oz. when we left the hospital. In 6 days, he put on 11 ounces!

At his 2-week checkup, Hamilton weighed 8 lbs. 13 oz.

Foster has not left Hamilton's side since we came home from the hospital.

"I'm resting my eyes" (not sleeping) like Grandpa Kenny.

Week 1

This onesie screams, "I want to be formal, but I'm here to party."

Hamilton dreaming of calling Auntie Kelse in Iraq.

Hamilton's favorite place to nap is on the "Brest Friend" nursing pillow.

His second favorite spot to sleep is the "newborn napper" in the Pack N Play.

Hamilton is very alert and staying awake for longer periods of time now.

My boys

Home, Sweet Home

Happy Birthday, Hamilton!

Justin met me and my mom in the hospital parking lot after a 104-mile bike ride. Talk about perfect timing!
