He’s growin’ good!

Yes, I know that’s bad grammar. But it’s my blog, right? 😉

The little man has gained a pound over his birth weight in just over two weeks. Yay for Stephen Wayne! He’s doing great. I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness on a regular basis.

Mama Byrd left yesterday evening. It was hard to see her go, but nice to know that she plans to return (with Papa!) in a few weeks. I wish I had words for how precious it was to have my sweet Mama here for the first couple weeks of Stephen Wayne’s life. Thanks Papa and Mama!

Picture of the day

This is the picture I tweaked for our birth announcements (posting the version before text was added). Isn’t he a cutie? 🙂

Some pictures

Not long after birth, but after both of us getting cleaned up. 🙂

A sweet shot with big sis, who got to go to Kansas with us

From today’s sleepy photo shoot

And a sleeping smile 🙂

Stephen Wayne is here!

Guess Jonathan was right on target about us needing to get to Kansas asap. 🙂

Stephen Wayne was born yesterday, June 2 (Happy Birthday, Tracy!!!!), at 2.14pm. He was 7# 2oz and 20 inches long. He is wonderfully alert and laid back. We are both doing well.

Planning to leave Monday evening to head back to Missouri. Will post more and better after we get back. With pictures, too. 🙂
