The arrival

Sloane is two weeks old today and is doing great!  I have quite a bit of catch up to do, but for today, here are the pictures from Sloane's arrival!

Here she is at just a few minutes old with mommy and daddy.

Some snuggle time with daddy. I know I'm biased, but I think she is the most beautiful baby ever… the most handsome being her brother.

Egan's first meeting of Sloane.  He didn't know quite what to think about her at first.  He whispered a lot and kept saying "Awwwww…"  It was sweet.  I think his favorite part was the lantern Sloane got for him.

His second favorite part of the visit was my automated bed.  He repeatedly pushed the up and down buttons.  It was a fun and wild ride!IMG 3480Sloane slept through the whole thing.  I'm guessing that will become a trend in this house since she lives with a wild big brother.

Eventually, Egan let the buttons on the bed go and gave little sister some kisses.

The following day Egan knew more what to expect and came bounding into the room ready to hold "HIS BABY!" Can you see the difference in his face?

Our second night in the hospital, we were treated with a steak and lobster dinner!  It was a mini-date night for us and so fun!

We were ready to get home by the time our stay was over.   We got Sloane all dressed up in her cute clothes and headed home!  Here we are waiting for Blake to pull the car up.

And once we finally got home.

Egan was thrilled we were all home… especially "his baby".

He wanted to hold her first thing. For anyone that knows Egan, it is odd for him to sit this still and be this gentle.  I was quite surprised he did so well!

So, we are doing great and everyone is adjusting well… even Bo and Maggie have taken to the new addition in stride.  She's sleeping fantastically! (Unfortunately, her brother didn't do that so well for a long time after he was born, so we are loving it.)  We've been getting out of the house a lot, and even all went to my cousin's wedding last weekend.  Our hearts are full and we are in love!
