This post is about eight weeks late, but we’ve been busy settling into our family of four.  

Oliver made his debut on April 6th at 12:00:00 AM exactly.  Healthy, handsome (born with his grandfather’s studly cleft chin and his daddy’s dimples), and hefty at 9 pounds 3 ounces and 21 inches long.  

He is so very sweet.  Rolled over at two days, started socially smiling at just four weeks, giggled today, and has slept through the night since day two!  Paisley loves–LOVES–being a big sister.  She pats his head, rubs his hair, gives him kisses, tickles his toes, tries to take him from us like she’s an adult who just wants to hold him for a few minutes.  When he fusses, she takes his hand and says, “Iss okay, iss okay.”  I was so nervous in the weeks leading up to his arrival that she would not take the change in household dynamic well, but she has blown us away with her kind and gentle way with him.  Not an ounce of jealousy as of yet.  

Here are some of our favorite photos of both of them lately.  You’ll notice they’re a little light with Paisley; she’s a busy kid, and she doesn’t ham it up like she used to.  😉  She is ALWAYS doing stuff.

I have a few posts planned, so check back soon!  I just wanted to get this uploaded for those not on Facebook since traffic has spiked since his due date.
