What a difference a year makes
Wow! It is hard to believe that just over a year ago, I was the hurtin' pup in that hospital bed and Christina was the happy-go-lucky girl who got to ooh and aah over the newborn baby, and then go home and go to sleep. In some ways it seems like a million years ago that Beezer was this little tiny nugget all swaddled up, and in some ways it seems like yesterday. I'm just so glad that Christina and I are able to share this journey with each other. I love you Chris!
Here are a few pics and highlights from our big day out to the hospital:
Here I am holding Miss Loreli Elizabeth for the very first time. She was born on June 3rd on a beautiful, sunny day weighing a hearty 8 lbs 14 oz. She is a C-section baby, but still has a hint of a cone head since her poor mother had to push for 5 hours before Loreli finally decided it just wasn't going to happen.
Beezer spent all morning saying "baby" and acting really excited over whatever it was that a "baby" might be. Once we got to the hospital, she got a little jealous when either of us held Loreli instead of her, but she was pretty excited to get to see her upclose and stick her finger in Loreli's mouth (sorry Chris).
Now that's a big baby!
Okay, so I am clearly not the greatest baby photographer, but damn this kid is cute. Congratulations to Christina and Jeremy and please join me in welcoming to the world:
