welcome, cousin.

Ian is here! His brave, wonderful mama is doing well and he is just heavenly. He was born a couple of weeks early (January 30th) by cesarean (he was breech) and he weighed 9 lbs 10 oz! Big boy! We adore him already. I was so blessed to be able to be there and witness those first moments when Katie fell in love and the sweet smiles of a thrilled grandma.

Mom was pacing the halls in a ball of nerves before the surgery.

The kids think he's a cutie and they all want to hold him. The kids watched as they gave him a shot... well Ossi hid his head under a pillow. Finn's face was so pained for Ian when he got poked. Evy gave Ian a few concerned glances regarding the reigning title of "baby," but generally speaking, she was pretty enamored. We just can't wait to get to know him in the days, weeks, months and years to come! Welcome to the family, cousin.
