Layton Brooks Flesher

Layton Brooks was born Friday, Jan. 22, 2010 via c-section at 5:38pm after a long day of fun labor:) Layton was quite the linebacker weighing in at 9lbs. 7oz and 20 inches long. Matt and I could not be happier. The love you instantly have for this little person is so strong and amazing. We just stare at him and don't like to be far away from him.....I am sure that changes once you are ready for date night to start back again:) Here is Matt holding Layton for the first time after he was all cleaned up. The sad thing about a c-section birth is that I had to wait about 20 minutes before seeing or touching my little guy....brought tears to my eyes to hear him but not be able to see him. Plus some added nurses and doctors came in to assess Layton because he was having trouble breathing when he was born....they think he was just stressed out from the labor and then the sudden c-section. He also could have swallowed a lot of the amniotic fluid on his way out.


Our first picture as a family of 3. Lovely picture of me but what can I say after about 10 hours of labor:) Layton is such a sweet baby and tends to be very laid back so far.....but he is still only 5 days old. He has light hair (not much of it) and blue eyes. He has the sweetest little face that I kiss on all day long. He loves to hear his mom and dad talking close by and he can't seem to get enough of me holding him. He also loves to be swaddled and put in his crib. We got to come home yesterday (Tues.) and it has been a lot of work. 5 days in the hospital can get a little old....Layton had some trouble feeding and got a little jaundice so we wanted to make sure everything was perfect before taking him home.

Here is my sweet husband reading Layton a bedtime story. My mom bought Layton a book and stuffed animal that is too cute. Matt read to my belly during my pregnancy so Layton calms down easily and loves to hear his Daddy's voice. Matt has taken the role of being a wonderful Daddy like a champ....makes me love him even more.

Sweet Layton sleeping the day away:) More pictures to come...........
Thank you for all of your prayers...we could not feel more blessed!
Matt, Lindsey and Layton
