July 26

Due dates.  I've had five of them.  I surpassed two of them and the rest came awfully close.  I know how hard it is to watch them come and go.

And then there's Victor.  Born on April 13, today is finally his due date.  That makes him finally 40 weeks gestation; full term.

You've come a long way, baby!

Sometime during Victor's first week of life, April 13 - 20.  This is the first and only picture we had before arriving in Utah to see him in person.
2 weeks old and our first day with Victor
Daddy gets to hold for the first time
1 month old
He loved being on his belly

1 1/2 months old, starting to be more alert and following voices
Mommy got to give me a bath
2 months, fuzzy wuzzy hair
3 months, loving to snuggle
Getting chunkier
3 generations (many thanks to the nurse who allowed us to bend the rules to have 3 visitors instead of 2, just for the photo)
Going home, July 16, 2013
Look what being home can do
And today, on the date of Victor's official due date, I took a helper with me and we visited the doctor for a weight check...
She kept him comforted in the car
Surprise!  He now weighs 7 lb. 1 oz!

He's officially a chunky monkey!
Wonder of wonder!  Miracle of miracles!
