Scenes from home

Eli checks out the bedroom...

...and falls asleep.

A trip to the doctor

On his first full day at home, Grandma and Grandpa help strap Eli in for his ride to the pediatrician.

They will be his doctor till he turns 21. That is the year 2030 for people keeping track at home.

Other than needing to gain some weight, Eli is healthy. He didn't however appreciate hanging around the office in his underwear.

Eli Jacob Hyman

At 11 hours old.

Welcome Eli

After around 24 hours of labor, Eli Jacob Hyman was born at 12:28 a.m. July 20th. He weighs in at 8 lbs., 13 oz. and is 20 inches tall. It took an emergency C-section to get him out. At around 3:30 a.m., Kim gets to hold Eli for the first time.

One last piece of work

Kim sends a quick email telling work she won't be in on Monday.

Away we go

Kim shows off her belly before going to see Away We Go Saturday July 18th. The movie, about a couple having their first child, prompted Little E to say I have had enough of being inside. Two hours after the movie was over, Kim went into labor.
Our friend Taryn took this photo at the State Farmer's Market on July 5th. It proves Kim's belly is bigger than a watermelon.
