He's Here

Squire Everett was born September 23, 2008 at 4:16 pm. He was 8 lbs even and 20 1/2 inches long. Everything went well other than the fact that his heart rate dropped significantly right before birth and the doctor started getting concerned which got us concerned. Needless to say, doc used the vacuum to get him out quick to avoid complications that come from low heart rate. So, he had a beautiful cone dome which has now gone down.

As far as looks, I have spread out all the baby books and he has features of all the kiddos. He has Miss B's eyes, C's dimples, N's and B's chin...you know, just a mix. Oh, he also has some dark brown hair more concentrated in the back but I haven't taken any non-hat pictures yet because of the cone issues. Stay tuned for those!

Here are a few snaps while we chilled at the hospital...I caught a cute yawn, love those.

And love those lips...kissable.

bright-eyed and alert

Flowers from the hubs...they are quite delightful!

Here he is all bundled to go home (even though it was 103 outside...he was still chilly).


The siblings are quite smitten with him...N is so enamored, he follows us around constantly wanting to hold the little man, touch his face, shove his binky in his mouth, you know.... He's sometimes in the way a little much, but it's better than jealousy, so I'm glad.
That's all for now, I will take some fun ones in the near future! Cheerio!

  21. Squire is so precious! I am so glad everything went okay. I understand how you feel about the vacuum. Sunnie had the same thing, but her head is in perfect form, so you have no need to worry about his sweet head. Seeing Squire's pictures is getting me really excited for our baby. Take care!
