Happy Thanksgiving!

Family Photo

We went to Brynna and Jason's house for Thanksgiving this year. There was so much food! Jo, Brynna, and Clare did the cooking, and Jered and I brought some of our family favorites. We also took photos of us as a family since it's not very often we are all together.

Sullivan and Riley

Sully and Riley 007

On Saturday we went up to visit Brynna and Jason and Sullivan. It was neat to get the cousins together. They look very different - but have the same lips. When they are sleeping they look more alike. Max did very well being quiet and got a star wars movie to watch upstairs.
Saturday was also my 34th birthday - which I would have completely forgot if my phone hadn't reminded me at midnight when I was feeding Riley. So I bought myself some cupcakes in celebration - chocolate of course.

Tanning already

We had to stay in the hospital for an extra day because he was a bit jaundice. The lights did their job well and he got a nice tan.

He is here! Born on 11-16-2009 at 3:36 pm - 7 lbs 9 oz - 21 inches tall, all boy! Labor was a short 5 hours and 3 pushes so you couldn't ask for better. I'm glad I listened to Jered when he said we had better get to the hospital. Riley is doing well - Mom and Dad are tired but figuring it out. Max is so happy - he loves his new brother. He can't stop kissing him. So cute. We will see how he feels when he starts taking his toys...

My office had a baby shower for me and they went all out! They made this huge diaper cake and bought me all sorts of cute baby things and more diapers. So it seems like we have everything we need - except for Ryley to pick his birthday...
