henry: one day old
Henry has had to spend his first two days in the NICU because he was breathing a little too fast and the doctors took great precaution and swept him away so that he could undergo some tests all of which so far have proved that he was fine to begin with he was just probably a little excited to be here and was simply breathing fast. We can only go in two at a time to hang out with him but we do get to hold him now and that is very cool. He has to stay in there until some cultures finish growing and the doc declares him perfectly healthy which means another day or two before I can get him alone for a real photo shoot! This one was done in his little plastic bassinet under the warming lights in the super sterile NICU, where he is being very well cared for I might add. His parents can't wait to get him out of there, though, and get him home where he belongs. Isn't he cute?
