We thought we were lucky that Tory was such a good baby. So before Tegan arrived, I was nervous that the scales would level, and we’d have a little terror on our hands. HA! This little girl is the happiest, easiest baby – if all babies were this easy there would be a lot more people in the world.
This doesn’t mean we’re having a third, by the way. We’re quitting while we’re ahead.
Welcome to the world Tory Cedar Hoffman. Tory was born on January 8, 2007 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. He was 6lbs 13oz., and overall very healthy.
He decided he’d rather come out feet first, which may be a good indicator of his intelligence, for who really likes coming out and landing on their head? Unfortunately doctors and midwives don’t let them land on their feet much these days, so he came out the hard way, via c-section. He put up a pretty good fight, however, coming out butt first, and screaming bloody heck to be put back.
Here are a few images of his first day of life. Click on the image to view gallery.
