We formally welcomed Walter James to the world on Sunday 30 April, 2017.

These were the last photos taken of our family before Walter came along.


Full size
I'm not sure why, but Henry insisted on going between Mommy's legs here. Premonition??


Full size
Last picture of our family of three.

Here's a happy look at Natalia after we got admitted to the hospital. Having had her water
break early, we were advised to hang out and go for a walk. So, after a walk at the Glenmore
reservoir and a movie at Chinook, we were back for them to induce her and get the party started.

Here's our little baby Walter. This face was what convinced us of his name.

Little screaming Walter.

Too bad this flash was too bright or I would have gotten his birth weight too.

Walter's birth weight of 8 lbs 5 oz.

Just like with Henry, Natalia got to have peanut butter and jam toast after delivering a baby.

Baby Walter sleeping in the bassinet at the hospital. Unlike with Henry, it took us the better
part of a day to decide on a name. Too bad for Walter, I really wanted him to be a Boris.

Eyes-open Walter.


Full size
A happy smile, almost.

Walter wearing a toque that his great Aunty Eileen made, along with a receiving blanket that
Natalia made. I was pretty positive we were having a girl so Natalia made both a blue one and
a pink one.


Full size
Natalia also brought a blue and a pink cupcake from Crave.

This was the sign that Aunty Maria and Henry made for Walter. Henry was really cute when Walter
first came home - he was giggling and laughing and pretty happy to have a brother.

Walter's birth card from the hospital.


Full size
Natalia's stinky boys. Henry couldn't really hold Walter when he first came home due to
Walter's broken collarbone.

Daddy with a smiling Walter.


Full size
With the broken collarbone, we needed to wrap up Walter in a snug swaddle.


Full size
We also didn't put Walter into a lot of outfits the first week or so, due to his collarbone, but
here is a rare outfit photo.


Full size
The death stare from Walter while snuggling with Daddy.


Full size
You can see the safety pins being used to relieve any strain on Walter's collarbone.
