Baby Brother arrives...and finally has a name!

We welcomed little Nolan David Glabe to the world on Sunday, November 28th at 12:06 AM, nearly 3 weeks before his due date. He weighed 6 lbs 9 oz and measured 19.5 inches long. We feel so blessed to have been entrusted with this sweet little spirit. So far he has been a very calm baby. He eats, sleeps, and poops just like he's supposed to and even gained nearly 2 ounces by his first doctor's appointment. Aly is thrilled to have a baby to help take care of, even if it has been a bit of an adjustment for her. She likes to help change diapers, swaddle, and rock him and I even caught her trying to feed him some cereal today. She is a great big sister.

And now for the first week's worth of photos...

Aly's mad face - she isn't sure that this is what she ordered.

Pals already. It didn't take long for her to warm up to Nolan.
Aly tells Nolan all her secrets.
And Nolan tells Aly all of his.

Duckie jammies!

Our little guy.
Grandma Renae came to aid in the transition. She was a huge help, and it was great to see Aly warm up to her.

Stay tuned... more photos to come!
