Little Henry

We love Henry!

Todd entertaining Henry.

Rachel and Henry are both tired.

Henry likes to suck on his finger(s).

Henry's bassinet from Germany. (Borrowed from the Freestones.)

A big stretch for the little guy.

A close-up.

A sweet slumber.

He's alert!

Scratching.

We are now home with Henry and our lives have changed forever. We are now in service of Henry 24/7. All parents understand. Children need a lot of care and attention--multiple late night feedings, burping, dirty diaper/clothes changes, rocking, reading, bathing, a lot of loving--and providing it is the most satisfying job anyone could have. We have so much love to give him. Sometimes it is even overwhelming how much love there is.
Babies are gifts. We don't deserve such a sweet little guy. It's funny that with our own child we can be completely entertained for hours just by watching his facial expressions, listening to his sounds, and cuddling him. Babies are amazing. We're having the time of our life.
We're so grateful for the huge help our family has been in providing so much for Henry--a big thanks to our moms, dads, siblings, aunts . . . everyone! Thank you!
