It's been pointed out that I've been a little lax in updating some photos of our new baby, Liam. While going through what I've taken over the last couple of months, I noticed a small theme for some of them – his big sister just adores him. :)
Today, my new son is one month old! I've been neglecting the blog a bit trying to get various things done, but here's a few shots of Liam's last few days at the hospital. He was actually transferred from Foothills to Rockyview's NICU in the middle of the week, which was a great relief for us because it cut the commute time for visits in half. :)
My 3-year-old had a great time welcoming her new little brother..
And we finally got the go ahead to bring him home after a little over a week!
Further to my last post, here's a few photos from Liam's first few days in the hospital. He was born 5 weeks early, so he needed to stay in the NICU for a little while. He initially had some trouble breathing, so he was fitted with a CPAP to keep his lungs open until he could reliably breathe on his own.
After about 24 hours, his breathing had stabilized and the CPAP was able to come off.
So the first post I have to make now that our site is (mostly) back, is to introduce my new son.. Please welcome Liam Arryn Xavier! Born July 14th, measuring 2390g and 47cm. :D
As you might be able to imagine, I haven't had much time to review the photos on my camera yet, so here is the first one of him from my phone.. (taken with a Galaxy Nexus and processed in Aviary)
Once I catch up a bit on some of my backlog, I'll post some more photos. :)
