He's here!

Last week we welcomed our new little guy to the family! Gunther Lee. His name means "Warrior" and "Fierce as a Lion." He weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs, 3 oz. and 22" long only two days after his due date. I was glad we decided to induce so soon after my due date! With Caleb we waited 10 days and he was 9 lbs. Hubby says I "know how to grow them." :)

Here are a few pictures of our new little blessing!

He's here! 

 Peaceful moment with Daddy

 Big boy!

 C meets Gunther for the first time. Not quite sure what to think at first but by the time he left he had called him by name and announced to a nurse who came in, "Baby Brudder." :)

 Little bright eyes with daddy!

 Caleb "sharing." Too sweet. Caleb has only continued to warm up to baby Gunther. He loves to give him toys, help burp him, hold him, give him kisses and mimics his little coos and cries.

When we go places he asks, "Baby tum too?"

He'll often ask, "Baby a little sad?" when Gunther cries.

First Bath.

Our two sweet boys!

We feel very blessed! Gunther is a great baby. He took right to nursing and is an awesome sleeper. Most nights I only have to get up once! He is starting to get so much more alert and has started smiling. I have yet to catch a smile on camera.

Look at those cheeks! They get kissed a lot! :)

  1. Awwww... had to come check out the birth post!! Love his name and meanings. My husband's first name is Ariel which means "Lion of God." We try not to let the Little Mermaid ruin it! :) Congratulations again!
