Oh hello ...

... sweet baby boy.

Chubby-cheeked Conor Daniel decided to be more concerned about his parents' viewing of European sport than American which makes the proper Irish spelling of his name quite appropriate. Chris got to watch Manchester United win in stunning fashion yesterday morning, but Conor made his debut smack dab in the middle of the Notre Dame - Air Force football game. That combined with the fact that he was a bit sunny side up means we might have a rebel on our hands ;) although he was born with a view of the Golden Dome and Basilica in the distance so that must count for something. 

We are so over the moon, Chris doesn't even have to lasso it.

In his twenty hours of life, he is a sleeper, a sleeper and a sleeper.  

I can't believe we have two sons! We have childREN

Off to go have a snuggle - life doesn't get any better.

    Your two boys are going to be the best playmates. It looks like Ryan has already taken on the role of big brother beautifully, too.

  25. Oh Congratulations Katrina! He's so beautiful! And you of course, look fabulous. Which is a bit on the side of ridiculous. Do you notice there are no picture of me after giving birth on the internet? Its because I usually look like death warmed over but with more bags under my eyes! Hope you're getting some rest and enjoying that sweet, fast newborn stage!
