He's HERE!

We welcomed our gorgeous son into the world on at 2:11am on June 2nd. If you recall, I mentioned that EC told us the date would be "two", and sure enough, he was right!

Our new babe's name is Alec Nicholas, he weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 19.5 inches long. He has dark brown hair (and lots of it!) and his eyes are a dark blue with some brown mixed in.

We've all been home since Thursday afternoon, and dare I say...adjusting to two kids hasn't been as stressful as I thought it was going to be. I'm positive that'll change in time but for now I'm thankful!

Alec is a big time sleeper, waking every 3 hours on the dot to gobble up some milk and then right back to dreamland. He snoozes through all the noise EC makes, which is something I was concerned about. He sleeps in 3 hour stretches through the night as well, so I get some sleep! HOORAY!

Now for some pictures of this gorgeous guy:

EC is the best big brother ever. He always wants to hold Alec, he gives lots of kisses and tells us where all of his body parts are. We haven't sensed any jealousy yet and have been trying to keep him busy, he's adjusted well.

I'm excited to pull out EC's newborn pictures to compare and in my opinion, they both have their own unique looks.
