Simon's Favorite Babies: Babe & Bo

About the third thing Simon said when we told him we were having a new baby was a worry about his doll, Babe. "But I'm sad," he said, "it will maybe chew Babe. Maybe take Babe away from me." Uh-oh, Simon. Looks like Bo is already halfway there. Better make sure Babe and Bo don't dress alike too often!

Happy Birthday, John!

The day before Bo was born, we got to celebrate John's 6th birthday! Jay and his brother have birthdays one day apart, so John is pretty excited about being birthday buddies with baby Bo. Here, you will literally see the last photos taken as a family of five.
This last picture doesn't have John in it, but it is Kira playing with some trading cards that came with his new Magic Treehouse books. It's a hilarious picture, though, and needed to close out this pre-Bo era. Look at Violet tucked up in the corner. Pretty cute.

Happy birthday, John! We got you a little brother!

Bo's First Day

A smattering of photos from Bo's first day of life...

This morning, at 2:57 A.M., Benjamin O'Connor Wamsted was born. 8 lbs., 0.6 ounces; 20 7/8 inches. We're calling him Bo.
Ya-Ya & Pop-Pop brought the big kids down to meet Bo later in the morning. We'll have more photos to follow, but here's the first time our four kids got into a chair together. Probably won't be the last!

Spring Break Storm Day

Here on Spring Break/Baby Watch 2017, we had a super stormy day smack in the middle of the week.  It marooned us all in the house for the day so we filled our day with lots of reading, fort building, and a crazy hard puzzle.  It turned out to be a perfect stormy day!

Three Kids Still...

The day we got those pictures of Simon running I also grabbed a few of some tree climbers. I thought I would post them here in these waning days of our five-person family. Getting pretty close here--Millie is 38 1/2 weeks!
