Bill is a pro with the swaddling, feeding, burping routine. The second one at the house went off without a hitch, and I praised him for it. He looked like he'd been doing it for years...very comforting since he will be the stay-at-home-Daddy!
One of our LA friends happened to be in NYC for a visit and took the train down to DC to meet Cristina for a few hours. Uncle Asher is a jokester...and this is the first face he made as he was holding her.
Asher versus Cristina!
Uncle David also got in on the fun and had his photo taken with his
new roommate for the next one or two weeks.
Here are some pics from the first couple days...what an adventure it was! We know there are many, many more to come but this was such an unbelievable journey. We are so thankful to our surrogate, for being so awesome throughout this whole process. We will never forget the day she brought Cristina Lei to us -- Thank you, "M"! Big hugs (and a foot rub -- inside joke).
Literally minutes after birth. What a perfect face (both of them!)
Holding her for the first time.
A powerful moment.
Cristina meets Daddy.
Truly the face of an ANGEL.
Monkey Toes gets the green light to be discharged!....
....and now we are THREE!
Albeit a tired three...but enjoying every minute.
More to come...stay tuned.
BIG HUGS TO EVERYONE.
