Hiett's Here!

Hiett Bryn Johnson was born September 24, 2013 at 6:39 PM. He weighed 7 lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long. It was an easy delivery compared to Jack and he is such a good baby for us. He is seriously the perfect second child. The first couple weeks he just wanted to sleep all the time. I had to wake him up to eat every time, and even then, he wouldn't wake up sometimes. I think he has learned to like eating, because he eats very regularly on his own now. He likes to be held when he's awake, but likes to be sitting up. I've seen him smile a lot and my mom said she heard him giggle.

I was a little sad when my mom brought Jack to the hospital because he wouldn't come near me. He may have been a little mad that I left him. But I was also freezing cold and had blankets all around me, so the only thing he could see was my head coming out of the blankets. I guess that could be weird. He did start to like me again and even helped the nurse push me to my room in the wheel chair. He such a good helper :)

It took Jack a little while to warm up to Hiett but he did. Now he wants to hold him all the time. There are times that he points to the swing or his bed cause he wants me to put the baby away. But he has been a good big brother. So far, I've been less tired than when Jack was a baby and I think I've cried less. I'm so blessed to have two great boys and Josh who has been so helpful, even though he is crazy busy in school. My whole family has been awesome and so helpful. It's crazy to think I have 2 kids now but I'm so glad they will have each other.
