We left the hospital on Sunday.  Huck is all dressed up for the snow.  It was 55 degrees when we arrived at the hospital and a blizzard when we left.  Good thing we brought his snow suit.  This is also what Win wore home from the hospital.These amazing signs greeted us when we arrived home, made by Harriet and Dale.
And Win wrote this amazing letter.

Kids doting over their little brother.  He is very well loved.Dale suggested reading him a book-a self serving suggestion :-)Swaddling, Henderson style.  As soon as Jared finished he calmed right down.My THREE boys watching football on a sunday afternoon :-)

  • Judi Bowman Delis - Welcome home Huck! You don’t know it yet but you have a wonderful family, you will get lots of love & TLC. Happy first Thanksgiving!!

Here’s a few more shots of Huck. He’s having a pretty good first day out of the womb. Grandma Bonnie brought over Win, Harriet, and Dale for a meet and greet. He’s a good eater so far, but did not enjoy his bath.

All is well, thanks for the many prayers and well-wishes. Any West Michigan friends are welcome to stop by the hospital and visit anytime tomorrow (Saturday). We will likely be here much of Sunday too, so that would work as well.
