Baby Wanted

The stork arrived March 16, 2011 at 4:53 pm. Aaron Whitaker Lewis "Whit" weighed 7.11 and was 21 1/2 inches LONG. He is the most beautiful precious little gift from God in the world. We are all soo in love and so happy to have him here.

Right after he was born...


Getting ready for his first car ride. Here are the kids - they were so ready to have Mommy and Whitaker home.


Gma and Gdad were so wonderful to take care of the kids while we were at the hospital! Here is Gdad remembering when his boys fit in his hand.
Mumsie and Granddaddy came in town and got busy right away loving on the baby and playing with the kids. Mumsie and the kids made Whit a Birthday Cake!



Here is a gift from my dear friend that I have decided not to open because the wrapping is waaay too cute! ;) I have to shout out love to all my friends who are bringing us food and sending so many well wishes and trinkets for our little boy. Thanks for making this time so special for us!!


Here are Whit's siblings who love him soooo much. They are soo good with him and to say they are helpful does not quite describe how wonderful it is to have older kids and a little baby. So much fun for all of us.

The Leprechauns came while I was at the hospital - they made a mess of Anderson's room and left all kinds of trinkets. One item was green hair for buddy. ;)


After we came home and started to settle in, we got the report that Mr. Whit's Jaundice level was dangerously high. Our doctor recommended we go to Children's Hospital. It was very scary, we had to stay overnight. He got poked and prodded way more than I was comfortable with. But, the treatment worked and his levels dropped. I think I took 18 million pictures of him while we were there.



Here are some cute pictures they took at the hospital of our baby after he was born. We love you so much Aaron Whitaker, our whole family really wanted you. Welcome to the world my sweet boy.

Congratulations! Both my boys had jaundice and I'm expecting my 3rd one too as well. They had to be under the billi-lamps 24 hours each at least which was not fun, but they are healthy and happy now. It looks like you both are too. The pictures are so cute.
