New Cousins

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Colin was born almost three months ago, on March 25th, but had to wait for Matt and Anne to come to Utah to meet our Chicago cousin. He is so cute!

We picked up slurpees and let the kids play at the park while Melissa, Anne and I caught up.

The next day I got to go up to the hospital and meet Logan in the NICU. He was six weeks premature, and only 5.5 lbs. He is tiny, and it was so sad to see him hooked up to IVs, oxygen and a feeding tube. Luckily Cara is a nurse in the newborn unit, and it didn't faze her.

He pretty much slept the whole visit, but sometimes it would seem like he was trying so hard to open his eyes. He looked like I feel every morning around six.

He's home now, but one person or another in our family has been sick over the past couple of weeks, so the kids still haven't met him, and I can't wait to hold him without all the tubes and wires connected. He too is super cute.

Matt and Anne got permission to bless Colin while they were in town, so we got to have an intimate family setting. Unfortunately I forgot my nice camera and had to use my phone.

The kids were excited to have a chance to hold Colin.

Especially Ainsley, who hasn't had the joy of a younger sibling (and won't!).

It was a nice event, we're glad we could be there. As a bonus, Matt and Anne bought our double stroller, one of the last remnants of baby gear around here. :) As soon as we sell our Kelty backpack, we are pretty much free from all baby stuff.

Last, but not least, Harper Sophia was born on June 30th. She was full-term, but still only 5.5 pounds! She is darling.

And Christine looks fabulous the day after her c-section. If she weren't so nice we'd all have to hate her.

I love this picture—eyes open, and a peek at her tiny feet.

We are so grateful for all our cousins, old and new. Hoping for lots of happy memories with them in our future.
