Calvin Sellers Clark
7 lbs. 20 1/2"
There is no better feeling than having a new baby placed on your chest. It's completely surreal. Calvin had the highest pitched, squeaky little yelp. Melted my heart instantly. I was able to nurse him right off the bat and just like my other babies, he did great. We were quickly moved into a different room and decided to get a little sleep :)
The visitors came the next day. It was so fun to have my kids come meet their new brother. Nixon was hesitant, and I think it was mostly because I was in a giant bed with a hospital gown on. The kids went with Nic to give Calvin a bath (they watched from the window), and while they were gone I decided to get dressed and out of bed. Nixon did MUCH better after that. So interesting. He didn't care for Calvin though. After everyone got a chance to hold him, hang out, eat snacks and watch some TV on my bed, they went home. We had a few other family members come over that day to swoon over the new babe. Nic and I decided that night that we were bored of the hospital and planned to go home the next day... And we did! We brought our baby home on Dec. 22 and the craziness began :)
