baby ezra

we are alive and well. i am just neglecting my blog because i have been a tad bit busy.
our sweet baby boy, Ezra Harper Bartell, (i won!!) was born last Tuesday, December 5th.
7 lbs. 4 oz., he is the smallest of my three babies, and he definitely has the most calm, sweet spirit of the three (as newborns). He rarely demands anything from us, and spends much of his awake hours just snuggling us and contentedly sucking on his shirt sleeves and fingers.

the kids are just deliriously happy with him. i hear about 50 times a day, "baby ezra's cuuute" from Julian and Annabelle is seriously offended if I don't let her hold him on demand. she is such a great helper, and loves to rock him and sing to him.

ezra is small but has the longest, skinniest fingers and toes. he is a little baldie and has the littlest chicken legs and baby booty. he has jaundice but it is hopefully going away, as he has been doing a lot of "sunbathing" the past 2 days.

i am still using my mom's computer and don't have a way to upload photos, but i will share some as soon as i can. these are the only photos i can find on her computer, so i will share more when i can.

Baby Ezra is just adorable. My next question was going to be "how are you?" but you sound just fine!

I'm glad your other kids are adapting well!

I've been waiting for this post. He is adorable and I wish I could snuggle him. Annabelle is a bit older than Steph was when Christopher was born. But she too was an amazing big sister. I can nearly see Annabelle cuddling him and Juju all over him with love. I'm so glad all is well. Love you.

ps. blogger isn't allowing comments, but my settings are ok. irritating!!
