Home with baby

Sept 4, 2009
Gideon Lane - 8 lb 15 oz 22 inches

loving on brother

So we are adjusting pretty well with our new little addition. Gideon Lane Hawkinson was born Sept 4, 2009 at 7:53 a.m 8 lbs 15 oz and 22 inches long.
Gideon is a sweet baby we all love so much. The boys are adjusting and want to hold brother and love on him, Asher sometime a little more 'loving' than he should be.
Today Gideon is 11 days old and his favorite activity so far is eating :) all the time it seems, which is nice because the first week he had a hard time latching on to nurse. So mommy is happy to have a satisfied sleepy baby. Joe and I go back and worth between who he looks like more Ben or Asher. Right away at birth it was Asher, but on any given day he looks like Benny. Pretty soon he will just look like himself.
So now I am just trying to get back into the swing of things like laundry, dishes, sleeping and quality time with Ben and Asher. But overall we are doing good and I am enjoying lots of snuggles with my new boy.
