I forgot how great it is having a newborn in the house. Besides his sweet little nature, I love what it does to our family. I love the excitement that the other kids have as they welcome their fellow brother into our family. I love the pure joy of Scott as he almost bursts with excitement to hold Ryan. I love the sweet way Abby whispers to him about all his fun toys and his bouncy seat waiting for him at home. I love Erika’s careful way she holds him, not wanting to hurt him. I love Brooke’s concern for when his umbilical cord will fall off, and when they will remove the electric bracelet from around his ankle. I love Austin’s concern for me  after I delivered Ryan. I love Brianna’s complete patience in waiting her turn to hold Ryan. I love the wide eyed attention that Ryan gave to his brothers and sisters as they each held him.
Yes, life is good.
