You guys, thank you so so so much for all your wonderful comments over the last few days. I’ve been wanting to update but we’ve been stuck in the hospital forever — seriously, they would not let us go until late this afternoon, despite everyone’s robust and gaseous good health, we started thinking we were going to have to jailbreak our way out a window or something — and now of course we have some major not-sleeping to do, as well as overcompensating with Riley for this horrifying new arrangement (“Hey Riley, let’s go buy you a MOTORCYCLE! Unless you’d rather have your very own HOOKER?”).

More actual blog content to come soon. Until then, some squishy newborn photos:

Oh, Linda, wow! I adore that last photo of Smalltopus. He looks perfect. I teared up at the photos, even with my heart of cold, black stone. I didn’t get a chance to comment the other day when you were asking for them, but please know that your writing touches me (and obviously many others!) so deeply that we’ve come to care about you and your family like you were our own. You are very inspiring and brave to share so much of your world with us. So…thanks! (Wow, that’s inadequate.)Enjoy your little peanut. Boys are awesome!

What a beautiful baby! I love, love, love the photos of you and JB holding him — so sweet. Now we’ll all look forward to photos of Riley loving his little brother. ;)

Oh my goodness, he is absolutely gorgeous! And in those photos he seems to be such a calm, serene, old soul.

Dylan is very very cute…and justsoyouknow, if Riley decides to “send him back,” he can come here and live with us! (It’s always good to have a Plan B. LOL.) Oh, so cute.

Wow, that whole entire little person was in your belly! He already looks like he has a sweet little baby personality. Congrats to all of you–I’m sure Riley will be a great big brother… even if he needs some time to adjust.

He is so alert! And cute! I can’t wait to meet my second boy now! (due in June)
I can’t wait to read about what Riley thinks of this whole little brother business.

Right now, his knees look just like mine. And nobody says mine are cute. Can you hear your Mom’s heart thumping all the way across the Sound?

Christina

Ahh! I have tears in my eyes Linda, he is just perfect. He has superpowers, how else could he make me want another one already when I have a 4 month old? Yikes!
Serisouly, I can almost smell the sweetness from here. Congrats again!

So adorable. Your pics may have just convinced me to go ahead and have a third baby. Must keep reminding myself that I do not need another.

AWWWWWWWW!!!! SO cute. Can’t wait to hear how Riley adjusts–if I could ever convince my husband to have a second child, that would be my big concern.

Enjoy!! :-)

There’s a photo of my dad holding me as a newborn that reminds me so much of the one of JB and Dylan. The love and fascination just radiates out of the image and now I’m going to make myself cry! Congratulations, good luck (with the not sleeping), and can’t wait to hear more!!

Too freakin’ cute! Take care of yourself. I remember those first few days after a c-section, those memories make it hard for me to want to do it all again. :)

He’s gorgeous! That’s the best thing about having a c-section, the babies are look so much nicer than those who had been squeezed out. I hope your recovery is easy.

Linda, he is beautiful. He looks like you I think. Except, of course, in the areas where he doesn’t and JB can obviously take credit for that.

Congratulations and, Riley will come around, I promise.
