Please welcome William Joshua Amos to the world! Will was born on Saturday, November 26th, 2011 at 1:50am, at Beverly Hospital. At birth he weighed 9 pounds 10 ounces, and he was 23¼ inches long.
Sharon's labor began around 3:00am the day before and by 1:30pm her contractions were close enough together to know that it was time for us to head to the hospital. Sharon courageously labored through the afternoon, evening, and late into the night until, at 1:50am, Will was born!
As I write this, it's been almost two weeks since he was born and Sharon and I are so grateful to have him in our life. We've gone from being a couple to being a family. He's healthy, he's happy (90% of the time), and life is just grand so far. Sleep has definitely been interesting—it's certainly a huge adjustment for us, but we're adjusting to it well enough.
Enough words, lets get to the photographs! Below are photos from moments after his birth, all the way through to the end of his first week.
It's Thanksgiving, November 24th, 2011, and we thought you'd be in our arms by now. Alas, you find the comfort of your mother hard to let go of. Who can blame you? It's getting quite cold out these days.
The very first photo of our baby! We have no idea what his or her sex is, but s/he looks amazing here, and you can clearly see his/her forehead, nose, mouth, and chin. We can't wait to see him/her in real life.
