Baby Brahm (Week One)


Welcome to the world, Baby Brahm!


Proud sister Lily visiting at the hospital...
 Oliver with Brahm...
 Brahm's first bath...

 Sleepy Brahm...





Brahm was born Monday, and thankfully--he and I were feeling well enough to all come home Tuesday.  It's so good to be together as a family of 5!  The kids LOVE him...and they have been very helpful this week.
The nights started off rough, as he only wanted to be held ALL NIGHT LONG for the first 2 nights at home.  But thankfully, he did very well last night.  Maybe we'll get some sleep after all!  We are so thankful for Joel's sister Sara who is here for a few days to help out, too!

Here are some random pics from the week:


 Oliver LOVES to hold him.  This morning, he and Brahm bonded for about 15 minutes!


The kids love being close to him...so we watch that very closely.  :-)  
But today they were just watching him together--it was so sweet.

 Lily is getting some good bonding time with Sarah, too--this morning they painted toenails!

I have a picture of Oliver in his same outfit at 4 days old--I think they look SO much alike!

I was just going to email you to say that I wanted/needed to see pictures! So glad to see that you posted some! He looks like a cutie--and I agree! He looks a LOT like Ollie did as a newborn! I really hope it works out to see you over Thanksgiving. We'll be in touch!
