Our newest addition has arrived! Connor Patrick was welcomed into the world at 6:43am on Monday, September 5th, weighing 8 lbs 3.5 ounces and measuring 21 1/4 inches. He just had to come on Labor Day!
While both of my pregnancies were practically identical, the labors were completely different. Connor's birth was everything I wished Aidan's had been. (I now realize that I never shared Aidan's birth story with you all. That's something I'll have to do sometime in the near future.)
He is breastfeeding like a champ and looks so much like his older brother! Connor is a sweet, sweet boy and Jason and I were immediately taken with our second little man.
Mama and baby are doing great! Tomorrow morning we go home and in the evening we'll be picking up Aidan from our friends who have been watching him this week. I'm excited to have my entire family together.
Connor is a night owl and I can't help but hold him after his nighttime feedings. I know I should get some sleep, but I love staring into his beautiful eyes and stroking his chubby little cheeks.
Big brother Aidan came to visit yesterday. When asked if he wanted to touch or kiss Connor, his response was "No!".... He did eventually touch and kiss his baby brother, but didn't seem too interested in him. Hopefully his adjustment period goes well and he learns to love his baby brother.
I'm bursting with love for all of my boys tonight. I never thought I could be happier than I all ready am. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such a loving father for my children. And I am so grateful to have two healthy, beautiful little men. :)
Good night, all!
