Ethan Hunter Scott Batty

Ethan was born May 11th at 6:58 in the morning.  He weighed in at a whopping 7lbs 4oz and 19 inches long.  He came out just perfect and healthy.  I am sorry that the next pictures are in kind of a random order, but they were having a hard time downloading anyway.
This is Zach's grandma, so Ethan's Great-Grandma, Nana.  She is so great with kids and it is great having her close enough that she could come see him in the hospital.
My Mom and Grandma came to visit one evening.  This is a generational picture with Great-Grandma, Grandma, Mom and Grandson.  I am so glad that Ethan has so much family on both sides of the family.  
He is the most awake newborn that I have known.  He has long stretches of time that he likes to just look around.  Luckily these times are usually not at night when he is suppose to be a sleep.  He seems like a very curious baby.  
Connor cannot get enough kissing in.  He know that he can kiss the top of Ethan's head, but very softly.  He also likes to rub his hair.  I am afraid that Ethan is going to have a bald spot on the top of his head instead of on the back like most baby's get.  He is such a great big brother and likes to help out in any way possible.  He is adjusting to change well and is the best big brother any baby could have.  

Zach and Connor would come to the hospital to have dinner with Ethan and I.  Connor enjoyed the picnic that it was because there wasn't anything to sit on.  
He got new sunglasses that day and wouldn't take them off for anything.  He now is usually seen walking around the house with them on, no matter what time of day it is.  
This is just was we were leaving the hospital to start on the grand adventure of a family of 4.  It is has been a great experience that I wouldn't trade for anything.  So far we have had no health problems.  We are excited to see where this adventure takes us.
