My New Nephew - Sawyer Farr

I was lucky enough to be able to go back to the good old US and A for Christmas this year. However, the main reason I really wanted to go back was because my sister and her husband, Emily and Jeremy, were having their first baby really close to Christmas. I have to admit that having my older sister pregnant is pretty wild and crazy. She stayed pretty healthy and even kept working until the last couple days before the birth. I don't think I would be so diligent and would probably end up laying in bed the last month, eating full bags of Doritos in one sitting. By going home around two weeks before Christmas, I was able to be there before Sawyer was born. It was pretty cool to be there for that. Here are a couple pictures we took a few days before Sawyer was born:

Sawyer was born on Saturday, December 20, 2008. He weighed 9 pound and 15 ounces, which apparently is really huge. Because he was such a big baby and had a big head, he had to be born by c-section. He was born with curly, blond hair and I think Emily and Jeremy received about a million compliments on what a cute and large baby they have. He is definitely a little man, that's for sure.

We were able to visit Emily, Jeremy, and Sawyer a lot at the hospital. Of course, everyone was taking a lot of pictures. Sawyer's dodgy uncle Wes was even able to hold him for a little bit.

I was able to stay in Utah for about one week after Sawyer was born. We visited the new baby a lot during that time. I'm sure that I'm not the first one to observe that newborn babies are basically sleeping, eating, and pooping machines. Emily and Jeremy are pretty lucky to have such a good looking baby.

This was the first time that I was able to be around a new born baby. My other two nephews I wasn't able to see until they were already a bit older. It was great to be home for this and I wish Emily, Jeremy, and Sawyer the best.
