Brand-new baby borealis, yet unnamed

 8 lbs 3 oz :: 22 inches long :: one hour old
Born at home at 2:13 AM on 5.31.13
He is the exact same weight (but an inch longer) than Baby Diego --
We think he looks a lot like Truen as a newborn.
♥ His hair is dark and little tendrils curl upward ♥
He has a good latch and took to nursing like an old pro.

The next morning: 
Meeting the two biggest brudders for the first time.
They were so excited!
We went to bed "as usual" last night and they slept through everything
They went to G&G borealis' for the day today . . . 
the solitude is divine.

 Big brudder Diego got to hold him first --
He ooooh'd and ahhhhh'd over all his little baby parts.

 Big brudder Truen held him second --
He was particularly interested in his little hands and feet.

 Big brudder Jamie held him third --
He tapped his little nose gently and seemed very interested and pleased.

 Surrounded by boy-ohs

First family picture --
I love all the action in this shot.
Jamie was cranky because we took his "papo" out.

Yay!! I checked my email before the blog and I was so sad there wan't an update yet. But he is here!!!!!!! And he looks too sweet for words. Glad you, Dada, and the babe had a day of solitude.

My heart is bursting with love and tenderness for you and your family. O so so much love.

Okay, I am no done. The big brudders look so proud and adorable. And big! Funny how a little baby makes everyone else look so much bigger and older. And look at the size of Jamie's hands!

The babe has such a perfect and tiny head. And delicious cheeks.

And you had a baby! Look at you!!! You look fabulous!

And then there were four little men in your life.
