Henry is the spitting image of Daddy and looks exactly like William as a newborn. He has super long fingers and much to our surprise, blondish hair. Upon first glance I exclaimed, "He's huge! And blond! And BALD!" (He's actually none of those things, but within the context of our family he's our biggest baby, with the lightest hair, and definitely the least on top of his head.)
His delivery was smooth and I am recovering well. I had a lot of anxiety going into my c-section, lingering fears from our last time around. Fortunately, it's been very therapeutic to experience childbirth "normally" again, and without trying to sound like Oprah, I'm so grateful to have had this opportunity to close this chapter by coming "full-circle."
I will post more later (it's tough to complete a thought with all the comings and goings in the hospital), but wanted to preview a few pictures of our little lump of sugar before too much time passed.

Auntie was here for Henry's birth and actually gave him his first bath. Here's a clip:
Finally, I haven't formally introduced John Robert just yet, but here is a picture of Johnny and Henry. Cousins only three weeks apart and already best friends! Boys, boys, and more boys...
