Eli Edward Peterson

May 31, 2011 Eli Edward Peterson decided to join our family. He was two weeks earlier than expected. We went the the hospital in the morning and they checked Lizeth and sent us home. I headed back to work and Lizeth went home to suffer for the day. We returned to the hospital that night and the little guy was ready. It seemed like no time and he was out. We all were shocked to see his size. He was a little 4 pound 6 oz baby. For some reason he was not developing correctly. He was born 2 weeks early but doctors said it was as if he was 8 weeks early. The good news was he was well developed. Just little. He had a few issues that kept him in the hospital for a few weeks but we are very happy to have him home now. He is pretty awesome. He is a great sleeper and really mellow. Leilani has been absolutely incredible with him. She is always talking about how she loves him and how cute his toes are. He will be well taken care of by his big sister as the years go by.

Here are a few pics of him. I will get back on this blogging thing and put much more up in the weeks to come. Most of these pics are from his time in the hospital. We did a good job of getting out to spend time with him a couple times everyday while he was out there. The nurses and doctors were amazing and made it a good experience for us.

This is the foot that Leilani is so in love with.

Leilani was not allowed in to see him. We got an awesome nurse one day that bent the rules and made this special moment happen. She was in love!!

The little guy all loaded up and ready to come home.

Leilani and Eli!!!
