Nash was born last Thursday night, all 8 pounds and 4 ounces of him. He is the best thing ever. So far he reminds me of the koala bears we saw last month at the Phoenix zoo... he sleeps for about 20 hours a day and is the best cuddler imaginable. Between the three of us he is constantly hugged, kissed, and loved on. We are so happy to have him!

What have we been up to? Drew has been getting pedis and I am somehow trying to prepare for a new baby this week.

Everyone asks if Drew understands about the new baby and if she is excited. Well she has been counting down the days till her baby brother comes for the last couple weeks with squeals of joy like it will be Christmas. And she is obsessed with her baby cousin Otto so I know she loves the idea of a baby. Unlike Otto, I try to remind her that this baby is going to live in our house and be with us ALL the time. It is possible that he might take some attention away from her. Or get in the way of her managing day to day affairs around here.

She will be a great big sister though. The other day she shared her most prized treasure, her white old blanket, with her 6-week old cousin. I had a sweet vision of what a loving sister she will be. She then impatiently demanded of the infant that he say thank you to her. "Otto, say thank you." So... she has a lot to learn still about babies. But at least she will be teaching her brother and cousin to be polite.

Me? I am thrilled to meet the little guy.
