Leaving the hospital.....

Look at his beautiful hair and little hands!
Can you believe that Grace took this very artistic photo! (my dad's hand) Hayden has about the same amount of hair as Grace did when she was born. (Dax had very little) Hayden's hair is red like Dax's but definitely more brownish red.












This is right before we left the hospital on Tuesday. We decided to try and save a little money and go home early. I was feeling pretty good. My iron is the only thing that is low (9). He weighed 7lbs 8oz when we left.

"Going home outfit" Gene loves football!













We are finally home and adjusting well. Gene's parents were a big help the first day home. They entertained the big kids while we got Hayden situated. He eats about every 3 hours which is great! He was jaundice when we went back on Thursday for his Newborn blood screen but as of this Saturday his levels are going down already! Plus, he is now back to his birth weight!! I can't believe he is already 5 days old! He is such a good baby!!

He is so handsome! My husband always thinks that babies are funny looking, but I showed him a picture of Hayden and he said that your son is one of the only good-looking babies he's seen. So that's a huge compliment! :)

I'm glad that things are going well. We've been praying for you guys. Annie, you look incredible! Enjoy your time with your whole family :)

Beautiful!! I think I will be ready to go home early too, unless she comes late at night. I was itching to get out of there last time, and they said I could have stayed another night because she was born late in the evening.
Enjoy having an infant again!! 5 more weeks for me. :~) (If she comes on time)

Hey Guys! He's so beautiful! I wish I could meet him in person. Glad to hear everyone is doing well. I'll call you later on. Sorry I wasn't around last week to talk to you. Tell Hayden hello for us and congrats again!

You are right...Grace did an amazing job with that picture! Hayden is a doll, and glad to see and hear that everything is going smoothly so far. Hope things continue to go well!
