The youngest member of our family arrived at 01:43 on June 30, 2012.
Here are a few scenes from the first eight days in Jonah's life.
|Jonah with Mom and Dad a few moments after his arrival into the world and prior to transfer over to the Hospital for Sick Children.|
|Grandpa holding Jonah. That is a tiny feeding tube in his nose, one of a few of the things that were hooked-up to him while he was in the Cardiac Unit at the hospital|
|First day at home. Grandma holding Jonah while Kiera feeds her young brother.|
|Grandma holding Jonah|
|Big sister Kiera holding Jonah. Maybe this is a sign of things to come in the years ahead: the older sister telling the younger brother what to do and the younger brother voicing out his honest opinion.|
|He is awake! Mom playing with Jonah.|
|Grandpa holding Jonah. "Spout-plug" in place and sleeping like a baby...I had to say it. Not much bigger than a football.|
Shh! Just don't make any noise.
We all know what will happen if you do...and then I'll have to hand him back to his Mom. This is one of the good things about being a grand-parent.

|If babies could talk...then Jonah to Mom: Do I have to listen to all that baby talk?|
|November 2012 - Life is Good|
Quite a contrast at nearly half a year later: from after birth wondering about possible heart surgery in the Cardiac Unit to healthy, happy and developing normally.
