Our Precious Boy





Yes, pictures, finally! Thank you for the patience - particularly all of you long distance family! The ones above are more recent ones, but I will try to post some from his first day on the outside, before too long. And I'll try to start working on a birth story account as well!

As for a brief update, Hil and I are doing well. We arrived home from the hospital yesterday (May 5th) in the early afternoon. Oh, and a minor correction from the previous post, Hil was born on the 4th, not the 5th. We are taking it easy and being well taken care of by Stephen and my Mom and some dear friends of ours still have Clara and will probably keep her through tomorrow.

Hilkiah was awake a bunch yesterday and seemed to think he was "starving" a good deal of the time. But other then the "starving" factor, he seems to be quite a content, laid back little fellow. And, of course, he is just so soft and kissable and previous!

What a sweet chubby cheecked bundle! Is he a redhead? Can't quite tell from the photo. Congrats you two and happy to hear you are all happy and well.

"So soft and kissable and precious!" reminds me of Sylvester and Tweetie Bird in an old cartoon. Sylvester was being nice to the birdie and kept licking him, and the more Sylvester licked the better Tweetie Bird tasted! Just a warning;)
Thank you for pics of your handsome boy.
