Every Good and Perfect Gift
Sorry it took so long to put up anything more about Iain - and thanks to those of you who are still checking the blog! Right now, he's napping in his baby swing and looking adorable. He smiles in his sleep - really, he does!
Anyway, an update. Iain was actually born at a hospital, which was not the plan, but turned out to be the way it went. I began having back spasms during the pushing stage and had to go in at that point. He was born about two hours after we got there. The OB said we could leave right away, but the hospital has a 24-hour baby rule, so we had to stay. Needless to say, we were thrilled to get home!
Iain sleeps pretty well and is getting better at nursing. I think this swing will be very helpful because he really seems to love it. He is alert a lot of the time, looking around with his big blue eyes. Yes, blue eyes and dark blond-ish hair. He also has long fingers and feet and a dimple in his chin and in his cheek. Too cute!
We had lots of family in this past weekend. Iain's aunt Kelsey took pictures of him (well, lots of people took pictures of him - he is related to my side of the family after all, and we take pictures!), which are posted below. We especially like the drum picture; do we have a future drummer on our hands?
I am enjoying being home with him and Jeremy is missing him when at work. We're both loving learning to be parents. Jeremy is a great dad already and Iain loves when he bounces him, walks with him, and sings to him. Jeremy is great at calming him down when he's crying, too.
I'll get some emails happening as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience! And I'm sorry to those of you who wanted to be contacted during labor or after and weren't; it was a crazy time and then we didn't have our phone list with us at the hospital... you understand. I apologize.
About the bubble: we had a sonogram done on Iain Monday. Looks like it is nothing immediate, but they are going to keep watching it. We should hear more soon, as the radiographer will be sending us the official report. Keep praying!
I hope you all get to meet Iain soon - he's a precious gift.
Enjoy the pictures!
