Cory is a week old today, so I thought I'd post some more pictures. He is the sweetest little (big) baby ever! He loves to snuggle, doesn't cry much, and just likes to sleep, eat, sleep, eat.... He's going to pass Iain by in size before we know it, I think. He's a good eater, and so far, a good sleeper (praise the Lord!). He likes sleeping with me, but he's doing okay in his bed, too. We're doing some of each right now.
Iain seems to really enjoy Cory, "sharing" his toys a little too enthusiastically, waving to him all the time (Cory "waves" back, which makes Iain laugh), and sympathizing with him when it's time to get a diaper change. (The one thing that makes Cory scream!)
Cory has dark hair and eyes. Right now his eyes are blue, but I think they will change to brown. They are much darker than Iain's were. He's asleep most of the time, but when he wakes up, he's very alert and so much fun!
This weekend was a busy one for us: my sisters were all in town, as was Curtis, Jenna's fiance, and Jeremy's parents. We did lots of wedding stuff and lots of visiting. One of the goals was family pictures, but poor little Iain wasn't feeling well (he has a nasty cold still), so they turned out okay but not great. Nevertheless, here they are:
The whole clan:
Our little tribe:
Unfortunatley, not a single picture of us with Grammy and Papa turned out; Iain was too far gone. Please pray for him to get well soon, and especially for Cory to stay healthy. There's nothing sadder than a sick newborn! We're doing our best to keep the germs down, but there's really only so much we can do!
In closing, one of my new favorite pictures. It captures Iain so well. Jenna and Curtis were sitting, Jenna holding Cory, and I started to take a picture. Iain saw a camera and an opportunity, and here's what I got:
I sure do have a great family, don't I?
