Winston Thomas Rex Firth - Part 1

Hooray! We finally got to welcome our little man to the world! Winston Thomas Rex Firth was born June 19th at 6:30AM weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces and measuring 19 and 1/2 inches long. Yes, he has two middle names- named after both our fathers.
Check out that dimple!
Nice before and after pictures, huh. He came out covered in a lot of vernix, so he looks a bit alien in his first shots. We could tell he was a cutie, despite the nurse going on and on about it, continually calling him "cheesy." Um, gross, stop saying cheesy. Could you just wipe him down and hand him over?
I'll have to post the "details" post on another day. For now here are some pictures with a few captions.
Clayton and the best Father's Day present he'll ever get. I suppose it's good to max out early, his expectations can never get too high.
Winston looks just like him, only with my nose and his cousin's chin and another cousin's dimple. We'll take it.
Can you see his tiny tongue? He wasn't the licker that Eleanor was right away, but man was he awake and looking around. He can also hold his head up off my shoulder like Eleanor could. Weird, strong-necked kids we produce, eh?
He weighed only an ounce more than his sister, for which I am terribly thankful. I was worried that 9 days late would mean two pounds heavier.
Our sweet angel. So far he's been a dream. Don't get me wrong, he's a newborn and chooses to sleep and wake like one, but he is a content little guy overall.
They had us stay in the labor & delivery room for about three hours before they finally took him to be cleaned and poked and all that jazz. Everything seemed a 180 from how it went with Eleanor's birth. They didn't have Clayton accompany him for his testing and stuff, so we sent him home to go get Grandma Judy and Eleanor. I took a nap.
Here is big sister giving the baby a kiss.
More to come!
