Welcome home, Wes Henry


April 23, 2012 at 3:00 a.m.
5lbs. 11oz. 18.5″ tall

Mini update:

Strong suck, but a little lazy on me.  Good with bottle,  but not allowing that to be the norm!

Pooped within the day and daddy had a field day with his first diaper change!

Saw all of his grandparents,  Aunt Liv and hopefully Uncle Mark!

Was a trooper through his blood work and really enjoyed basking under the heater.

Stood up using his own strength during his bath! Wow!

Beautiful heart with a slight murmur.  No concern, but they’re following up.

Daddy is an amazing father!  I became #2 once Wes was born.  I don’t mind at all.

Wes shares a birthday with Grady’s Mommy!  What’s the chance!? Happy birthday, Erin & Wes!

And yes, Wes has Down syndrome,  but we don’t notice a thing. He is just pure love!

I may not post often these next few days because I will be loving this boy to pieces!  We appreciate all your sweet words along with your love for Wes!

    Congratulations!!!! He is beautiful! You dont know me but I saw your blog via IDSC. Regarding the weak suck and you not wanting to use a bottle. Have you tried tube at the boob. Where you push formula thru a small feeding tube and have him suck it out while he’s latched on at the breast. That way he is latched and practicing breastfeeding. And if his suck is really weak you may want to pump after he latches to better stimulate milk supply. I work as a postpartum nurse now and wish I knew what I know now when my daughter was born. Congrats again and have fun!

    So very excited for you, Adrienne. I was in tears this morning looking at his picture, remembering the first time I laid eyes on my own sweet angel. 🙂 It just gets better and better, and you fall more in love with every passing day. CONGRATS! And welcome “officially” to the family!
