About a month ago I posted a picture of my niece (in-law), Liz. Every week of her pregnancy, she created a weekly chalkboard drawing highlighting how big the baby is at that week (using food references). This picture was posted yesterday, 1 day before she gave birth (although the baby was considered a little past 38 weeks, per the doctor).
Here’s a recent picture last week of CJ and Liz (did I mention Liz is a photographer?)
Meet…Thayer James Archambeault
Whether the mother is breastfeeding or the mother/father bottlefeed their child, that is really their first shared meal. What could be sweeter? I recommend starting to treat meal times for the child as a sacred event right from the start, in a relaxing and joyful environment, and incorporating at least one meal a day as the baby/toddler grows to create childhood shared meal experiences, and lifelong habits.
My brother Carl (who is also my twin) is such a proud Grandpa!
Thayer weighed in at 7 lbs, 11 oz. Liz had a very quick delivery; she entered the hospital after her water broke around 3pm and the baby delivered at 5:14pm.
Congratulations to Carl and Liz, and every new parent welcoming a new baby into their family.
