It's been quite the week as we welcomed Ryder into our home and our hearts. He made his grand entrance after 16 hours of labor on October 29th at 4:32 am. He weighed in at 9 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. He was healthy and absolutely beautiful! As long as he has a full tummy he seems to be pretty mellow and absolutely snuggly. I am thankful that he is such a big and sturdy baby because his big sister adores him to pieces and is full of hugs and kisses for him.
It's amazing how different the second kiddo is! I think on the second one you realize how the littleness doesn't stay so little for long... and I just want to enjoy him... and soak in his sweetness! His sweet soft skin, his smell, and his tiny fingers and toes. I am sure there will be tons of more pictures to come but these are just a few that I was able to snap this week. These were taken on November 3, 2010... He was 5 days old.
I just love his scrumptious smile!!! Oh what I would give to know what he was dreaming about!
A new baby is like the beginning of all things--- Wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. -Eda J. Leshan
