Owen Turns One Week Old

It's hard to believe that our little squirt is already one week old. The first week of his life has been's truly a life changing event that has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives. Everyone told us that you can't imagine what it feels like until you have a baby, and that's certainly true. Words cannot describe the love that we have for this special baby boy. We visited the pediatrician last Thursday and he got an outstanding report and he had gained 4 ounces and was back up to 7 pounds even (just 5 ounces shy of his birth weight). He is such a great baby - we just love the expressions and smiles he gives us during the day and he only cries when he's hungry or needs changing. We have been so blessed to have so much help since we've been home - thanks to everyone for the meals, visits, and cleaning services that we received. It's been a huge help! I look forward to keeping you updated on his progress.

Baths have been interesting (don't let the smile fool you)

Has Mommy finally finished giving me this bath?

Looks like "little Owen" is adjusting to home life real well. Mom and Dad keep up the good work and take advantage of his down time. A nap here and there will surely help you guys out.

Love you,

Mimi and Papa
