Breaking News!

On Tuesday morning at 2:06 AM, our family welcomed a baby BOY! We have decided to name him Aidan Allan. He was 8 lbs 6 ozs when he was born (exactly the same as Iain’s birth weight!) and 20” long. Not that labour is ever easy; Aidan made it a bit more of a challenge by being born face up. He is beautiful and a joy. Now, if we can just get him on Nova Scotia time versus European time (he is up from 11:00 PM to 4:00 AM usually) we will be all set!

Aidan and I returned home on Thursday evening. We seem to be adjusting well to the new addition. Having DH at home and Grandma here as well has been a Godsend.

Iain is quite taken with Aidan and calls him by his name or by ‘baby brother’. He often stops to look at his brother adoringly during the day, which just makes my heart melt!

By the way, April, you were the ONLY one to guess ‘boy’! Send me your snail mail address via email and I will get some cool pressies off to you.

Baby - Hooray!!!!!!

You grew a sweetie - He is absolutely beautiful Patty! Aidan is already looking like Iain - I think it's that sweet mouth that always seems to have a hint of smile. Congratulations to all of you and enjoy this precious time when you finally get to know and cuddle each other. Watching your first child become a big sibling is such an amazing thing and all of a sudden it makes you realize how exponential love is in a family. Sending you all some good sleepy vibes and very best wishes for the exciting new chapter ahead.
