more Van

Thanks for all of your comments! We really appreciate everyone's love and support this week - in Cedar City and via our blog. :)

We got home Wednesday and are loving life as a family of 4. Van is a good eater and is a great sleeper during the day and is learning to be a good one at night. He'll figure it out. I'm feeling great - his exit from his warm, watery wonderland (my tummy) was much less traumatic than Emery's was, so it's hard for me to believe I even had a baby. (I'll save the masses the labor and delivery details - call me if you're dying to hear!) He's a sweet, beautiful baby and we're soooo excited he's finally here. Emery loves him too and is being a good helper! Here are some more pictures since we shorted you the first time.

just minutes old, holding mommy's finger

big, mad boy before his bath

first family picture (emery missing of course)

all clean and studly


emery meeting him through the nursery window (they have lots of restrictions at the hospital because of swine flu concerns, so she didn't really meet him until we got home)

squished, ready to go home face


loves for mommy


emery meeting her little bro


she likes to lay next to him on the couch and give him extra blankets

1st picture smile (click picture to see his cute smile better) with Grandpa Wilkinson. either he really likes Grandpa Wilkinson or he was pooping his pants! :)



save the best for last - we love that little man face

He is precious! I am so jealous that my parents are going to get to hold him and take in that new baby smell. I am considering the drive just to do the same. Congratulations!

Hey Britt...congrats...its good to here that labor went so well. All I have to say is that you look dang good in your hospital pictures. Hopefully I can aspire to look like that for the next one. Well hope the healing is going well and that you are getting tons of rest. Kiss Van and Em for me.

Aaron - was just reading about Samuel the Lamanite and figured he must have been a great climber to get up on that city wall. So I thought of you, did a search, and found the blog. Good timing - got to see your cute little newcomer. Congratulations you guys!

He looks a lot like Emery. So cute!

Jayson and Julianne said...

Congratulations! I am so happy for your cute family. 8 lbs 3 oz is a good size (exact same as our little peanut). Hope all is going well with a tiny new babe in the house.
