« Blah, blah, childbirth, blah | Main | Dear Kaylee, at 32 months »

Context to be provided later, but for now, an introduction

I don't have time to give a detailed account of the arrival of our newest family member -- imagine that! I'm busier now!  Who'd have thought? -- so I'm just going to provide a couple of quick photos before I go check on my new kid to see why he's grunting in the other room.

Internet, meet Robert James McDonnell, born at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13, weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces.


Sorry for the blurry phone picture.  Better ones will be uploaded once I figure out how to accomplish things with two kids to take care of.  Updating the blog is third on the list after: 1. Find time to shower, and 2. Brush my hair.

And one more photo of Kaylee shortly after meeting her brother for the first time.  I will let it speak for itself.  (Also, a note to local moms who are preggo -- the hospital just lifted its visiting restrictions, so now our toddlers can go to the hospital to meet their new siblings.  Yay!)

That last picture is awesome. When Rowan came to visit Keaton she held him for about thirty seconds and pouted because I wouldn't get out of my hospital bed to play hide and seek with her.

Ohmigosh! Look at that poor girl! I bet by now she's realized he's actually a pretty darn good addition to the home. Maybe? I hope.

Thank you for taking the time to share! Good luck getting that shower thing down!

Haaaa haa ha! I love that photo. OK, yeah, poor Kaylee is a thought in my mind, too, but after the guffaw. Good luck! If you need anything, just reach out.
