^^ Here he is, all ready to go home!
^^ Leaving the hospital two days after his birth (which is pretty special here). Normally you stay for three days, minimum, in France but recently they started letting people go home after two days if everything is okay with Mom and Baby. The midwives and nurses did seem to think it was strange that I wanted to leave.
^^ Of course we had to introduce Ian to the pets. They were very interested in him!
^^His first bath at home. He LOVED it! In France they bathe babies right from the beginning, without waiting for the cord to fall off. In fact, they told me to wash around the cord stump with soap just before the bath and then put on a drying cream after the bath. They must know what they're doing - his cord fell off when he was 6 days old!
And, below, a couple more fun shots from the hospital. Thanks for stopping by!
