Here's Clark Kelley Wagner in the OR after the doctors cleaned him up. I was holding him moments before but now they are running some tests .
We were moved out of the OR and here Clark is passing more tests with flying colors. ;)
Here I am holding Clark outside the OR. It's my second time holding my boy.
Three and a half hours after birth, Clark got his lab work done. I went with him and he held my hand almost the entire time. :)
When my mom presented this hippo to Clark and we wondered what to name it, Eva piped up, "the name Willoughbuy is free now." So here's Clark and Willoughbuy.
I changed Clark's first diaper... and every diaper for at least two days while Eva recovered. :)
A family photo.. that shows how hard Eva worked, that I was able to help out, and that Clark was pretty happy.
Here's my brother Dave and I - and our kids, Clark and his cousins Anna and Boden.
Here Clark sleeps peacefully in my lap. I remember my Dad telling me he used to be able to hold me in one hand - and I look forward to saying the same thing to Clark one day.
Clark in his own clothes for the first time. We loved the transparent bassinet at the hospital.
Clark and Daddy take a nap. Doesn't he look peaceful and happy?
Here Clark looks up at his Grandma Wagner.
Here's Eva and Clark... and doesn't Eva look great after labor and an operation? This might be my favorite picture from the hospital.
It really was all exhausting and when we could catch a few minutes between visitors and nurses, we caught a family nap. It's a self portrait. :)
Here I am feeding Clark a bottle. He got some formula in the hospital because he lost too much weight, but only 11 days after his birth he had gained a pound over his birth weight... and almost entirely on breastmilk! Go Eva!
Eva couldn't resist getting this tiger for Clark. Now it will be fun to take pictures of Clark with it as he grows up.
Clark came home and got the grand tour. Here he is in Eva's stamping room.
And his prayers were answered. He now has a habit of folding his hands when he eats... it's the cutest thing he does, short of sneezing - and yawning.
We all three share the master bathroom (and bedroom) now, but Eva doesn't seem to mind... he's just too cute!
Here's an alert Clark on the changing table. You should see him hold up his head - and even roll over - already.
Da-Who Doe-Rae: Clark get's his little Who face on after a satisfying meal and a healthy burbing.
Here's Clark in his "puppy love" onesie... with Daddy in the rocking chair of course.
Clark sometimes sits with me (for a few minutes) while I work. Though a home office has it's challenges with a newborn around, I know I'll treasure these times.
When he wants to stay longer... Clark can use his "bouncy chair" in my office.
