Fourth of July Weekend

Our little Korean-American on the 4th of July.

It's nearly been a week since Henry joined our family, but the time has really flown by! He's such a true blessing to us. We are falling more and more in love with him each day. He's still not sleeping well, but I think we are getting accustomed to a certain level of constant exhaustion. We have switched him from our bed to the Pack and Play in our bedroom. We all seem to sleep a little better that way. Eventually we will work up to him sleeping in his beautiful new crib, but we aren't going to push it for now.

Henry passed out from exhaustion.

Good news! He has decided that he loves taking a bath now! Yipee! The past 3 days he has played happily in the tub. Bathtime is no longer dreaded. However, this boy really hates diaper changes/putting on clothes. We have tried playing with him during it, but it just makes him crankier.

Henry in his cute little diapers and monster jammies.

On Sunday we went to visit some our family who had not met Henry yet. He got to meet his great-grandparents in the nursing home, his great-aunt Marcia and great-uncle Mike, his great-aunt Meemo, and his PawPaw. He charmed everyone with his cuteness, of course. He made a special bond with his PawPaw, eagerly sitting in his lap (he hasn't wanted to do that with anyone else) for quite a long time. It was so sweet to see that!

Well, this is all I have time for. I will, of course, continue to brag about my adorable baby....when I have time. :)

This is Henry with his new teether. It vibrates. Muy delicioso.

Love it! :) Is he doing better about being strapped in? He looks pretty happy in the stroller! :)
