Meet Henry

I am so excited to finally introduce the newest member of our family!

We welcomed Henry to our family on Sunday, November 24 at 2:16 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds and was 19.5 inches long.

His birth was totally different than what we experienced with Jack. Henry was due on November 16, so he was over a week late and my doctor decided to induce. Once I was induced, labor went a lot faster this time around. Henry gave us quite a scare during delivery because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and he cane out a very scary shade of purple, but the doctor and nurses were awesome and sprung into action and a few minutes later, they laid a crying little red-headed baby on my chest.

My mom was at our house with Jack, and later that night she brought him to meet his little brother for the first time. He wasn’t too sure about him at first, and wouldn’t try to hold him or let us take a picture of them together. He was a little more excited when he came back to visit on Monday and has thankfully warmed up to Henry in the last few weeks. Now he proudly tells people, “that’s my brother.”

We came home on Tuesday, November 26.

The last few weeks have been filled with sweet baby snuggles from both my boys. I’m definitely one blessed Mama!
