It has been quiet over here for a little while now and I’m overjoyed to share with you why… On Monday, October 8th at 2:03pm we welcomed our beautiful son into this world, Arlo James Collinger. This little 7lb 5oz cutie pie has us wrapped around his little fingers, as well as his big sister. Now I have a “Vi” and “Lo”. We are all doing well and just enjoying getting to know our little man and our new routine as a family of four.
As you will see, Vi is smitten with her little brother. Today, the first thing out of her mouth was, “Where is brother?” She loves to hold him (until he has a stinky diaper), retrieve his pacifier, sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to him and kiss, love, and soothe him. It is the most amazing thing to see them together. I’ve been looking forward to these adorable snuggle sessions ever since I found out I was pregnant. Feeling pretty blessed to be their mom and to be able to watch them grow together.
Today, Arlo is four weeks old and I have no idea how it went by so fast, I’m not surprised, but days seem to only last a few short hours. Most days are spent in our pj’s while drinking cold coffee and eating cold pizza, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My heart is full!
Thank you for all the warm and well wishes over the past 10 months! My family and I appreciate your patience and understanding, as response time may be delayed over the next couple of months. We are busy loving one another, trying to get organized again, and also trying to master the Tetris game that is having a toddler and newborn.
Without further a do, meet my Arlo James. Sorry, I’m not sorry for causing any “baby fever”.
