Welcome Home Greyson!

Introducing William Greyson Petkoff!

Greyson arrived on Friday, July 30, 2010 at 7:53 a.m. weighing 8 lbs. 3 oz. and measuring 20 3/4 inches long.

It started out as a very early day for Jared and I! I think they were just preparing us for the lack of sleep to come! We had to be at the hospital for the c section at 5:30 a.m. to get ready for the 7:30 a.m. surgery. I was a little nervous about the surgery, but it went really well, and Greyson and I are doing great! I am also very proud of Jared! He's a little squimish when it comes to blood, but he handled it like a champ, and he is turning into such a great Daddy!

Greyson had so many great friends and family members at the hospital to welcome him to the world, as well as gifts from friends who couldn't be there. We can't wait for him to meet everyone!

We are already learning so much about our little man! He is such an active baby! From day 1 he was already picking his head up off of my chest and a few days later he was attempting to roll over in the hospital crib! So, of course, Jared and I have decided he must be extremely intelligent, agile, and advanced for his age! haha His very favorite thing in the world is to free his hands from his swaddle. It's like a game, and when he gets them free he raises both hands above his head like an Olympic medal winner!

So far, knock on wood, he is a great baby! He sleeps in between feedings at night, so I feel pretty lucky that Jared and I are actually getting to sleep a little bit. We have also been very fortunate to have both of Greyson's Grandmothers here to help us out along the way with our random questions, laundry, and meals. It is going to be hard to adjust to doing all of this by myself in the next few days, but Greyson and I will figure it out! :)

Here are some random pictures from the hospital and his arrival home, along with Jared's 31st Birthday with his favorite present!
