When we were looking for some baby pictures of the other boys to compare with Aubrey it was a wee bit sad when I realized the settings. But it was seriously just a wee bit of "oh, bummer". When I got home I was wondering how I would feel as I walked into my bedroom with all the homebirth supplies set up......unbelievably I felt relieved and knew that I had made the right choice. I really can't explain it, but I am at total peace with our decision. And for that I truly thank the Lord. I finally got my peace that I've been praying for! And I am thankful, even if it came later than I had anticipated, but always in His right timing.
Ok, now for a little look at Mr. Aubrey. Only a couple of pictures thus far. We didn't take any the first day. A few the second day, then the batteries in the camera went dead. I did receive my new lens in the mail, but it was left on our porch and built up some condensation. Plus my new camera's battery was dead as well. So for now we have like four pictures of the new little man.
Here he is!!!! Such a cutie. Too bad he later scratched up his little face with his nails!! It's healing now.
We put him in the sun to help with his jaundice. All my babies get it, and he's no exception. The only problem we had was that the hospital wouldn't let him go home if his biliruben was at a certain level. We didn't want to take any chances, so we had him sunbathing.
Jonah is a great big brother! He loves, loves, loves to hold the baby!! I was able to totally pin down the both boys' reactions to Aubrey. When Jonah first saw the baby he said, "Baby tummy?" just as I was expecting. And Jed, upon seeing then new baby ran out of the room and got on the computer, just as I expected. Jonah is always asking to hold him, and can't get enough of his new baby.
That's it for now. Isabella is holding the baby. We've all eaten, the girls are watching a movie, while the boys and Flannery are running around. I guess I'll be off to relax :-)
