Saturday afternoon when we came home from the hospital, we opened the gifts my family brought for Blake. They were very thoughtful and got Connor a few gifts too so he wouldn't feel left out. It was a baby shower for Blake and a Big Brother Party for Connor. Connor loved it (and so did I).
|New bad and ball!|
|This is Connor's favorite thing he got. He calls it "sticky ball." And he's really good at it!|
|He also got snaps and M&Ms - his two other favorite things.|
|Great big brother.|
Sunday afternoon we did a big family dinner with my family and the Jeppsons. So fun to have everyone together to celebrate our sweet new boy.
|Great Grandpa Gotberg.|
|Grandma Brenda and Grandpa Brian with their 3 grandchildren - Connor (2.5 years), Alexis (7 months), Blake (newborn).|
|My little snuggle bug. This is by far the best part of the newborn phase. A warm little ball snuggled up and sleeping on your chest.|
|Blake and Papa, Blake's namesake (Paul).|
Birth (Thursday night) - 8 lb. 14 oz.
Leaving the hospital (Saturday morning) - 8 lb. 6 oz.
First doctor visit (Monday afternoon, July 2) - 8 lb. 15 oz. - already passed his birth weight! In 2 days!!
Second doctor visit (Friday afternoon, July 6) - 9 lb. 9 oz. - 10 ounces in 4 days! What a chunker!
Tuesday we hung out at home and gave Blake his first sponge bath.
|Me and my 2 sweet boys.|
|Like I said - absolute best part.|
|Look! They're communicating! :)|
