Is he getting any bigger?

So paranoid Jen (that's me), sits and stares at Preston everyday to see if he looks any bigger. I wasn't sure at first, but he finally is starting to look like he is growing. What do you think?

Okay here he is still in the hospital. Not my favorite pic, but it'll do.

This pic had to be when he was about a week old. He doesn't look any bigger yet. But then again maybe I was looking for drastic changes. (he's only a week and I've already set super high expectations... my poor children)

A week and a half here. Not much bigger (if any) but he is looking more alert.

Here is 2 weeks. It looks like he shrunk to me, but that's with my crazy mom eyes on. (Did you know I even took him outside to ask my friends if he looked any bigger.)

This picture was from yesterday (2.5 weeks), and he is finally starting to look bigger to me. See I know I'm crazy, but at least I admit it.

Okay we can stop operation "Is he growing"

Homeward Bound

So we survived the hospital and are now off to see if we can make it on our own. Or to see if Preston can survive being around his siblings 24/7. Hopefully we have success all around, but only time will tell.

Practically Perfect in every way

Today we finally got to meet our precious new baby. He arrived at 8:58 am on Friday, October 12th. We were hoping that he would weigh at least 9 lbs, but he only made it to 8lbs 12 oz and19 inches long. (We'll keep him anyway) . Preston came out kind of crooked. I didn't know that when you had a c-section, the baby could get stuck. But Preston did. If anyone wants to see pictures of my stomach cut open with half a baby stuck, let me know and I'll send it to you. I just really don't want to post it here (even though it was one of my finer moments). The Dr. thought he might have hurt Preston's hips, but he was wrong.
Preston Joseph "brand spankin new"
I laugh at this picture, because to me it looks like he is trying to cover his ears, which doesn't make much sense, because Preston was the one that wouldn't stop crying after he came out.
Mom, Dad and baby Preston It's probably one of my better pictures

We think he is quite cute!
