Henry's 1st Week

Isn't it just crazy how life changes so much bringing a baby home, but it feels just as it should be.  We have been getting used to our new normal and having Henry home has been just perfect.  I definitely think Evan is having to adjust the most.  Not because he was the baby, but because he is a boy and rough and doesn't know his own strength.  There have been a lot of "nos", "don't touch", "be gentle", "stop!" and unfortunately lots of time outs...he is two ya know!  Zoe's life has chagned very little by Henry's arrival.  She has been so helpful and such a good big sister but also has also become very bossy, motherly towards Evan!  We have to remind her often that it isn't her business to discipline Evan.  Both kiddos love to hold Henry and Zoe makes sure he is with us everywhere we go.

Henry...well....he eats, sleeps and poops.

Henry has been breastfeeding great!  He has been eating every 3-4 hours, but I let him tell me when he is hungry.  One night this week, he slept 6 1/2hrs straight....never wake a sleeping baby!

As his first week went along, Henry had more and more alert hours and not all sleep.

Zach and I were so excited to bring Henry to Mass.  We had the inevitable argument of who brings the baby up to receive his first blessing.  Zach argued a good point and he got to take him up.  Everyone was so congratulatory and wished us all the best with our sweet Henry.  I just love our church community and I can't wait to get more and more involved!

 I can't believe how much our sweet boy has changed in a week!

Absolutely love the pics of Zoe and Evan holding him! And that bow tie onesie is just too much cuteness! He is a doll, and it looks like big brother and sister are amazing with him!
