Anderson Brady's Birth-Day



Anderson Brady Jenkins

19 inches long
April 16, 2008
3:23 pm


This was my longest labor so far. Labor started Wednesday morning at 7:30 am and the baby was born that afternoon at 3:23 pm. Alli and Landon's labors were 3-4 hours less than Anderson, but boy was in worth the extra hours! I'm in love! :) Here we are just under an hour after his birth.





Alli was so excited to get her hands on her new brother.



Landon however, was not so impressed, the first couple of photos of them together Landon wanted nothing to do with him, this was day two.



My middle of the night feeding photo op.





Yea! Getting to go home, daddy carrying our wreath around his neck, someone in the waiting room ran up to us wanting to capture this moment.



Here he is the next day after being home all snuggled up on the couch, the boy sleeps everywhere but his bed for some reason, hmmm...



Today he is a week old, so when he wakes up gets a bath for the day I will post some week old pics of our new little boy.

Congratulations! He is so beautiful!
Wonderful pictures can't wait to see more.
You look fantastic after his born. I was on labor for 14hrs so in my pictures I look really bad.

I love the picture of y'all leaving the hospital--how funny! I couldn't help but notice you are wearing shoes. I was so swollen after I had Emma Kate, I couldn't wear shoes home from the hospital!! It was worse than while I was pregnant. I guess your "cute" ankles are better!!

I'm so mad at myself Michelle for not getting to your blog sooner!! Anderson is so precious. I can't get over how aware and alert he is! Love these photos of all of you, especially the ones with Alli and Landon. Congratulations!

Seriously, I can't believe I'm just now reading this :(. Sorry for my extended absence, but it's nice to get updated! Anderson really is a beautiful baby. Sometimes I agree that he looks like Landon, but sometimes I think he looks like his own little person - if that makes sense! I can't wait to watch him grow!!
