Nolan Elliott

Born March 12th, 2008 at 1:24 am

8 pounds, 8 ounces

20 inches (though we think he's longer)

Simply beautiful.

We are all home and healthy and very happy.

Thank you to all the friends and family who sent us good wishes and lit candles and laughed to hear my water broke the night before our scheduled c-section:-) Never a dull birth in this family! Love how Nolan let us know we picked the right day.

We arrived home today to this sight:


I can't thank our good friends enough for caring for our big boys while we welcomed Nolan to the world. Aidan and Sean had a wonderful time while Brian and I were able to eat, sleep (well, maybe not sleep) and breathe Nolan 24/7 for the first few days in the hospital.


(am I allowed to keep saying how beautiful this boy is?)

Today he got to meet his big brothers.


Even in all his excitement, Sean still remembered to wash his hands before giving his brother some lovin'. Then he wanted to know who took Nolan's teeth:-) Lots of requests for stories of when he was a baby, when he slept in a crib, etc. And I overheard him sweetly tell Brian, "Daddy I missed you."


Love how Nolan seems to be winking and waving in Aidan's lap. Pretty good for 2-days-old, huh?

We came home just minutes before Aidan's school bus. Aidan was out of his mind excited--could barely speak and then sang Nolan a lullaby. Seriously---this boy, who rarely sings anything other than superhero theme songs, spontaneously knelt next to his brother and made up his own song.

My cup runneth over.
