Hi James, We Love You!

We welcomed James Arthur into the family on April 12th at 4:22am! He was 23 inches long (half an inch longer than Molly, and she was super long!) and 8lbs 8oz. Of course (because what can you expect after a pregnancy like that one?), nothing went as planned. At all.

You Know What Makes Me Happy? Molly and my Mom

Many people know that my mom has been coming to help with Molly. Many people may not realize that she has actually been religiously coming on every day where Molly is home from daycare (3 times a week). She also arrives as early as she can, is driving from Toronto every day (at least a 45 minute trip each way, usually longer), tidies our house, does dishes and laundry, makes lunch for all of us, wrangles Finnegan and her dog Tucker, often brings meals or snacks, takes Molly out to the library or grocery store AND seems to have bottomless energy and patience for entertaining Molly with crafts, elaborate games, sledding, you name it!
