Hyrum's Blessing

On Sunday September 14th we had little Hyrum blessed. Miles gave the blessing and we were able to have a lot of our family there. It was a fun day. Here are some pictures of him in his adorable tuxedo that my mom made for him.

Hyrum's first weeks home

As everyone know's the first couple weeks home from the hospital with your new baby can be a little bit nerve racking. I can't tell you how many times I would look at Hyrum while he was sleeping and wonder if he was alive. The first time he gaged, I almost had a heart attack thinking he was going to die. I don't think I really slept at all the first couple of nights, because I was so paranoyed that something was going to happen to him. Miles and I both worked ourselves up in worry quite a few times, just not knowing what was normal. We either called the pediatrician or went in about 3 times a week. But by some mirracle, he is still alive and all is well. We love this little boy so much. He has brought so much more depth to our own relationship as we figure out how to be new parents.
This is Hyrum in his coming home outfit (which barely fit him) on the changing table for the first time. We had to learn how to be fast and effective in the diaper changes as the window and our clothes have been drenched time and time again by our little man.

The first few days, all that Hyrum wanted to do was sleep, and sometimes this was about all we could get of him being awake.

So cute!

One of our first family pictures.

Hyrum really loves cuddling up on Daddy's chest. He has spent many hours in that position.

These are some pictures that Miles took just a few days after we brought him home.

Here was Hyrum's first bath. Needless to say he wasn't too thrilled.
