A few more pics

Here's my mom (aka life saver) out on the porch swing with the babe during our Halloween photo shoot.

I meant to post this one with Jeremiah's birth pics... he's less than a day old here. I love how happy he looks.

We all went to church this last week. We only stayed for Sacrament meeting, but hey, we were there! Here's Jeremiah as we were heading out the door.
Here he is snuggled up on the couch. Grandma sure likes to make him all cozy.

This was our first outing, just the two of us. We got all dolled up to go see the pediatrician for his 1 week check up.

One loved baby

Audrey and Bennett love their baby brother. They are sweet as can be with him. This comes as a great relief since I feared some retaliation and jealousy from Bennett. He's not been a complete angel, but what can we expect? It was several days before Bennett asked to hold Jeremiah. I hadn't even thought to offer to let him hold his new brother! He whispered "I love you Jeremiah".

We've survived the 1st two weeks!

Here's Jeremiah's first bath at home. I think he feels okay about bathing in public and that he won't hold this posting against me. He's had two baths now (just one a week is what the doctor recommends) and has not enjoyed either one. He hadn't begun screaming in the photo below... but you can see it coming, can't you.

Everyone's feeling a little sleepy these days. I really can't complain because I have a wonderful support system. My mom's been here for the last week. She arrived the day after Lisa returned home. She's the official night nurse and consistantly gets me a good 2-3 hours of sleep to start off the night. Thank you Mom! Rob has been able to be home a lot as well and helps with so much of the work. Yet, there are some parts that only I am equipped to handle. In the end, we're all in need of a nap.

Jeremiah seems to be the only one getting all the rest he desires. We love to watch his dreaming smiles flash across his face. He's already starting to smile with his eyes open too... so sweet.

Here's Stacey looking more beautiful than any women should look going into the hospital. Lucky for her she thought she was just going in for a stress test and she wasn't actually in labor yet.
The stress test went fine but since she was already at a 5 they decided to jump start the party by breaking her water.
5 Hours later Jeremiah Thomas came into the world at a beautifully healthy 8lbs 3oz, 2o inches long. He was born just after midnight on the 8th because Stacey and Rob thought the 8th was a better birthday than the 7th.
Here's Rob, doesn't he look like a proud papa!
Mother and baby are both doing great!
Here's the first family gathering. Audrey is quite the proud big sister and Uncle Ryan drove in from Costa Rice just in time to join the celebration.

He's a very sleepy baby but Stacey got this great picture of those beautiful blue eyes
Spencer and I arrived that night. I have the hard job of holding the baby!
Here's a big yawn as he tries to avoiding being awake again!
More pictures and Stacey's version of the story coming soon! Lots of Love Lisa
