He's Here!

Henry Owen was born yesterday, June 4th at 4:10pm. He weighed 9 pounds even and was 21 inches long. Ben was an amazing labor support person. Henry is still learning to latch for breastfeeding, so we are busy at home and resting as much as possible. I'll share a few pictures here and I'll just have to post more later.

Brand new little boy!

Happy little family

Here he is at 6 and half hours old in his going home outfit

Yay! Welcome Henry, and congratulations to his mom and dad!

Good luck with the breastfeeding. If you want support for that or any other aspect of parenting a newborn, don't hesitate to give us a call. We're not experts, but we've been through it pretty recently. :)
