More Maverick

We brought Maverick home from the hospital today. We were so grateful for the wonderful facilities and staff that took care of our every need at Intermountain Medical Center. It was the easiest delivery experience I could have ever asked for.

Now that we are home, it is becoming more and more evident that Maverick is a real part of our family and home and I just love it!

Maverick is a very chill baby. The nurses and doctors commented throughout our stay at just how quiet, relaxed, and mellow he has been, even when getting poked, prodded, moved, changed, and tested. We brought him home and he slept while we got him changed into his outfit, loaded him into his car seat, loaded him into the car, drove home, and unpacked him. He wakes up every now and then and just looks around with his big dark eyes. I don't think he can see much yet, but he's trying to see what he can see!

Here is a little movie I made of the little guy and some more pictures of him.

My dad holding his grandson on the first night. Bishop Holmgren stood up in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday and announced to the ward that the babies of the ward were now safe because "Sister Holmgren is now a Grandma and has her own baby to play with." I think by now he has taken prideful ownership of Maverick and is glad to be his Grandpa too.

My brother Johnny FINALLY is an uncle!

Betsy had never held a baby before. She was very worried that he was so fragile, but she did great!

Really the only thing Mav doesn't like is having his temperature taken. Toughen up kid, there are worst places they can take it than the armpit!

The Pirate Nursery

These first few pictures are all progress pictures just to show how it was done and why it took so long!

Here's the finished product.

My friend Kelly from my old work and her husband, Rich, surprised me with this beautiful treasure chest that they made for Maverick as a present. Isn't it beautiful???
