It’s a hard life for a Huck.
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.
Welcome to you’r home.
I love you. you our
cute. you will soon
find we have some of
your possessions such as
you’r hat and your
Bottle wich googy (Dale’s nickname) will
Thought bubble–“hello to the world’
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 :-)
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.
For those of you who want more details… It’s now about 7:30 am and we have every reason to believe this baby will be here by 9 or 9:30. We had hoped to sleep most of the night last night, but that didn’t really happen. Rachel’s contractions got fairly intense and she ended up getting her epidural around 2:30 am. There was a little while there where we thought the baby might come in the middle of the night, but the epidural seemed to slow things down. The plan is to break her water at about 8:15 am and then things should really start to happen pretty fast.
Rachel is feeling great. We’re ready to meet this little guy! We’ll post again later.
