Brighton Has Arrived!!

 Brighton David Reichert was born on November 20th (my brother James' birthday!). I was induced and so we arrived at the hospital at 5:30 am and they hooked me up to the machines and got the ball rolling!

 He arrived at 4:55pm. He was 7 lbs 5 ounces, and 20 inches long.

 This is one proud daddy!

 Getting all cleaned up.

 Siena got to meet him about an hour later. They had just finished cleaning him up and had to keep him under the little heater while she was there so she didn't get to hold him til the next day.

 Siena and I. She's eating the ice chips they had given me.. this girl loves ice!

 The next morning Siena and my mom came to visit. Somehow we didn't get any pictures of my mom with him.

 Siena is one proud big sister. She tells everyone about her baby brother and often when I go put him down for naps she comes and asks "where'd baby brother go!?" She loves holding him and giving him hugs and kisses. It's so fun to watch her with him.

I think she's telling him secrets..:)

 It was rainy and freezing on Friday when we left the hospital so we had to bundle him up good!

 Viv was here for her birthday so we helped celebrate a bit with some cake!:)
 Siena was especially loving it!

 Pictures of his first bath right after breakfast..

 We already love this little guy so much and are so excited to have him in our family!:)


  1. Congratulations! What a sweet family.

  2. He's do cute and precious. So glad it all went smoothly!

  3. You did a superior job of documenting your little son's birth! Fabulous, Kristin! Loved all of it and I'm wondering how you could look so beautiful right after he was born!
