On July 21st, we welcomed a new little boy to our family, Anson Wilder Manning.
Anson is a big boy! At 9 pounds, 7 ounces, and 22 inches long, he is 79th percentile for weight and 97th percentile for height. Luckily his head is only in the 42nd percentile! The only sad thing about having such a big boy is that my "little" baby doesn't fit any newborn size clothes.
This beautiful boy has beautiful red hair, and we hope it stays! He has adopted the nickname, "Little Red" at home.
Just our luck, an old BYU game happened to be playing on the tv at the hospital. Anson got to experience his first BYU game with his dad at less than a day old. . . .
We are adjusting well, I feel great (thanks to a natural birth--perhaps a birth story to come), and we are loving our bundle of joy.
