A week ago tonight, Kate gave birth to our first child, Ian Parker Smith. He was born at 6:41 pm on November 1, 2011 (our eighth anniversary). He measured 19.5 inches long and weighed six pounds and one ounce.
We made a couple videos for out-of-town friends and relatives. The first showcases his long fingers and big feet.
Since newborns spend so little of their time awake, this second one catches him with his eyes open.
Jonathon’s sister and brother-in-law visited on Sunday and took a picture. Kate was less than flattered by the family pictures in the hospital, in her glamour gown, so we figured we should get a few, nicer shots. This is one of them.
