henry's first week

i cant believe how fast time goes by and that henry is already a week old! (a week and a half almost now that  i still havent finished this blog post... things take a lot longer to get done these days!) it seems like just yesterday we went to the hospital, and now were one big happy, furry, sleep deprived family! i wouldnt want it any other way... we are so in love with our little man and every day brings something new.

im still working on henrys birth story... i cant seem to get through writing a paragraph without crying (not to mention reading everyone elses birth stories who recently had babies and reliving it all over again... hello crazy hormones). i will say that henrys delivery was wonderful. we had a great experience overall (minus the back labor, ouch). and despite being in pre labor/labor for over 24 hours, it seemed like it all happened in 5 minutes. we are so greatful for all the wonderful care we were given at the hospital from the doctors, residents, and nurses, and the support we got from our family and friends. (ahhh, ok im gonna cry again... lets get to some fun pics!)

our first week was busy to say the least. tys parents stayed with us at the house to help out with adjusting to our new "normal"... it was nice we didnt have to worry about the food, cleaning, or pets (we didnt ignore them but just being able to focus on ourselves and henry made a world of difference). my parents were in and out, were so glad to have them close by! henrys god parents stayed with us the night after tys parents left and we had visitors in and out throughout the weekend (who all brought food! i think we wont need to grocery shop til henry goes to preshool... thank you!). once everyone left and things calmed down a little bit, ty and i just sat on the couch with henry, looked at each other and said "now what?!" a huge change for all of us, but we are adjusting well and henry is a really great baby (despite wanting to stay up all night and sleep all day... you got it way wrong kid!)
