We have had so much fun with our new little boy these past 2 weeks. I'm always amazed about how much love we can have for another one, especially the kids. Elena is so cute, before I had Ryan, she said she didn't want to come to the hospital if it was a boy....funny girl. But, she is so in love with him, it's hillarious. She always wants to hold him as soon as she gets home from school. I can't imagine her loving any baby more!
Brooklyn on the other hand, has had a little more adjusting to do. She still loves him, and always says, "Baby hold me." But I'm not sure how she feels about not being the baby anymore. I think she throws about 6 tantrums a day. Fun times, let me tell you. We also had an eventful night last Friday...Elena was helping Brooklyn out from behind the giant Love Sac that we have and she was so strong that she pulled Brooke's arm out of the socket. So, off to the Urgent Care we went, I asked them if they give out Frequent Flyer miles...they laughed. Anyways, they just popped her elbow back into place and took some x-rays. Yesterday our pediatrician showed me how to put it back into place, because he says it will probably happen again. Anyways, eveyone is doing well here, I'm amazed on how little sleep I can survive on. Ryan is getting bigger every day, he now weighs 10 lbs. 2 oz.

Here's some pictures of Ryan, he's now 5 days old and getting better every day. At first he seemed to be crying if he was awake, but now he's actually awake and happy just sitting there or being held by one of the many willing participants. He is never by himself, I guess that's what happens when you have 4 older siblings. Brooklyn always jumps over by us and says, "Baby hold me!" She loves holding her little brother. She is so funny, every morning, she wakes up and kind of looks around the house and when she sees the baby she gives him this look like, "what are you still doing here???" It's pretty amusing.

So, it's finally here. Our sweet big boy. He weighed 9 lbs. 10 oz, 21 inches long....yes I know, BIG, especially his shoulders. My doctor called and said she was worried the baby was getting big, so she suggested I come in and let her break my water. So, 4 1/2 hours after that, out he came. Everything is going great, he's a very sweet and beautiful baby with 10 toes and 10 fingers!!!
