It's official - we are now a family of four (or five if you include Ger).Baby Olin was born on March 12, a date that we actually predicted he would be born awhile ago. He had a very speedy and uncomplicated birth - the complete opposite of Breccan's birth, which is perfectly fitting since it was a completely opposite pregnancy! He is a champion eater and sleeper, also the opposite of his brother.imageWe are home now and adjusting to new routines. It's amazing how everything needs to be reexamined when you add a second baby to the mix. I fully feel that I embody "Hot Mess Mom" these days!imageSo far Breccan is adjusting well. He loves his baby brother, always coming up and pinching his cheeks and kissing him. He has shared cars with him, and made sure he had a soccer ball to play with outside. He gets upset if anyone makes Olin cry - a very protective big brother, which we give him lots of praise for. The big emotions are starting, especially with Nick, but overall he's being his usual funny self.A more detailed birth story will come in the next few weeks, as well as some updates on life with a newborn.
