Welcome Peter John Bertels!!

Obviously I am about 18 months late getting this up, but wanted to get Pete's life documented a bit before baby #2 arrives!!

Peter John Bertels was born at home at 8:09 a.m. on Friday, March 12th. He weighed 7 lbs and was a very happy, healthy baby boy. He was breastfeeding easily within minutes, thanks to help from our midwife, Teresa. Peter came VERY quickly and we were beginning to think Paul and my mom would be delivering the baby but Teresa made it with seconds to spare!!

Not sure how Pete felt about all the cameras in his face a minute or two after his birth!!

He sure was a little cutie that day - hard to believe he was so tiny!

The first picture of the new family - mom, dad and baby Peter!!

Here's the whole gang - both grandmothers!!

Proud mom, although not exactly sure what to do with this new little bundle!!

Teresa helps out with breastfeeding baby Peter - yum yum!!

Peter getting some sleep - not usually at night in the early days after his birth though!!

Tired dad and Pete catch a few ZZZZZZZZs . . .

Here is Peter a couple days after he was born!!
