Introducing... CALVIN!

I don't typically do a lot of posting, but Melis is stuck in the hospital and wanted to make sure we got some pictures up. Here's a bit of a random smattering of some of the shots we've taken. We love this little boy and he's been an absolute angel so far.

His name is Calvin Aaron Wood. He weighed in at 9 lbs 9.4 ozs. He was measured at 20 inches. I'm impressed. I'm inspired. I'm blown away by the joy that he's brought us already. Melissa and I simply have a hard time comprehending the wonderful lives we get to enjoy. His birth has inspired us to be a little better. We have been blessed with so much to have a wonderful healthy new soul in our midst. We're constantly thinking life can't get any better and then something amazing happens.

This is Matilda's first time meeting her little brother

extreme close up... more to follow!

Calvin's trying to make us laugh by flexing his muscles

He's been sleeping like a bear in january... We think it may have something to do with the medicine, but we'll take it!

Here's a crazy hat his mom likes to put on his head

Tough to find something in the world better than this!

Or this!

I think he's a good looking kid

Kind of crooked with the hat, we'll work on it

Calvin in one of his favorite spots...


Well, I'm sure about 700 pics will follow along with Melissa's commentary.

Thanks for all the kind words you've shared. Melissa and Calvin are both doing great with no complications. Matilda's trying to figure out what in the world has happened, and I'm soaking it all in. I took school off Friday and Monday. In the hospital today Melissa turned to me and said, "Yea, this is like our honeymoon again." It's been great to just hang out and enjoy being with my family.

Lou said...

Miss..Hi! It's LOU! Congratulations on your beautiful, perfect little boy! (Perfect head shape!). I am so so happy for you guys. My only advice...take as many mesh panties from the hospital as you can.. Trust me, you want nothing rubbing on that wonderful incision! Oh, and stay on top of the pills.

Happy healing!
love love.
