Baby PJ

Thank you to everyone that came to Bismarck to meet our newest little man and to all that commented on the website. It is great to read all the well wishes and have all the family here.
Patrick and I are still doing good. We are checking out of the hospital tomorrow morning and heading home.

My parents have been taking care of Michael and have been bringing him by the hospital as much as possible so he can check out his little brother. Michael is handling it all okay, it is hard to judge his full reaction until we get home. So far he seems a little jealous but nothing so bad that a favorite toy or his blanky won’t distract him. I think once we get home the reality will hit that we have two little boys. As for now, we are enjoying the Grandparents help in the transition into a family of four!

Besides the excitement of having a baby yesterday, we had another surprise… Tim went out to run a few errands yesterday evening and when he got to the parking lot he saw our 2nd surprise. Someone had hit and run the car. Luckily, a cop saw the hit and run and got the license plate number. Long story short, we will be spending part of Tim’s paternity leave at the dealership getting the Corolla fixed.

Thats all for now, I am going back to cuddling and starring at Patrick. Give us a few days and we will update the whole website for now we will just be writing quick blogs to keep everyone up to date.

Happy Grandparents Day!

Labor Day Weekend

We spent the weekend with the Shannon Family in Jamestown and Ben and Carmen’s new home. It was a blast. Michael had a great time being spoiled with attention from his Grandparents and all his Aunts and Uncles. We played a bunch of games, everything from Poker to The DaVincci Code Board Game (the most complicated set of instructions for a board game ever made, if you ever try and play it just watch the instructional DVD and skip the instruction manual) Michael went on a lot of walks with Grandma Ruth to the nearby park. He is really loving his stroller these days!

I will have to be honest though, one of the highlights of the weekend was eating Jamestown Domino’s Pizza. You just can’t beat it. Tim used to work there, so when we went in to order the pizza for the small army that is the Shannon Family, Frank the owner gave us the employee discount and made all the pizza “special just for us.”

We left Sunday evening so we could have a day of rest before being thrown back into reality. On Labor Day, we pretty much just bummed around, nothing to exciting. We did get the rest of our bedroom set delivered so we now finally have a headboard! Other than that, nothing to report.
We haven’t uploaded pictures yet, but as soon as we do, Tim will post them. And Steve if you read this post, send us any of the pictures you took from the weekend and we will post them too.
