Here are a few more photos of our newest addition.  The boys absolutely LOVE Ronan.  It is so cute to watch them love on him.  In the hospital, Jacob was a little standoffish, a bit nervous, but you could still tell he was excited to meet his new brother.  Aidan, who I thought would really care less, is totally  excited about Ronan.  Both boys love to give him kisses and hugs.  Below are a few photos of their first meetings and then Ronan, ready to go home  (And no, he doesn't have freakishly long, bent arms - his little onesie that they give him in the hospital was a little big and the arms were super long.).  Enjoy!

Before, during and after

A few hours before we met our son . . . 
(Hard to believe he was inside of me just a few days ago)

Our newest addition . . .

We are so excited to introduce Ronan Isaac Thomas.  He was born early on Friday, January 23 at 7:56pm.  For being 3 weeks early, he was still a big boy!  Ronan weighed 6lbs 15.8oz and was 20 inches long.  He is so awesome and a great baby!  I will post more later . . .

The Mailman . . .

Sooo, apparently the mailmen that my children see wear lamp shades on their heads.  The boys have been cracking me up by walking around the house with a lamp shade on their head.  Jacob informs me that they are playing mailman and hands me my mail while wearing the shade.  I find it very funny.  And perhaps I should start paying more attention to the mailman . . .

Disclaimer Number 2

Finally, all of the Christmas pictures are up!  I know it's alot, but we have so much fun during the Holidays and I wanted to share it with all of you.  I won't be offended, heck I won't even know, if you choose to hit the back button on your browser and skip the gianormous amount of pictures.  But you will be missing out on some pretty fun stuff.  It's up to you!

Christmas Afternoon, Part 4

The final part of our Christmas Day is spent with my mom's side of the family.  Nan, Aunt Lori, Uncle Les, Josh, Luke and Andrea joined all of us in the afternoon for a final round of gifts and hanging out.  As always, it was a blast!

Mid afternoon entertainment - dog flying

Aidan in his normal dilemma, do I want to finish the crackers I'm eating or open another gift . . .

Lazer pointers aren't just for dogs and cats!  Doug was given a lazer pointer to use with Rosco.  However, the boys had more fun chasing it around.  Rosco figured out pretty quick where the light was shining from and sat in front of Doug, watching it.  My boys didn't care and had a blast running around trying to catch it.

Then the shirts came off and it was "man time" and the wrestling began

Aidan thought it would be funny to take it a step further, luckily the other boys, I mean men, didn't follow suit.  Which was surprising . . .
