When I tell you this little guy is adored, I mean it.
He is so very adored.
He’s his daddy’s first baby. It’s so amazing to see first-time newborn parents – all that excitement and wonder! Mike is no exception – he protects, he is amazed, and he loves wholeheartedly.
This little guy was longed for by his mama. I’ve written before about how Mary’s sense of humor cracks me up, and how her smile lights up her whole face when she’s super happy; but this was my first time seeing her with her newborn baby. And oh man, that sweetness. That way she knows just how to hold him and let him snuggle in. The way she both gets things done and goes with the flow in this adventure – how she lives in the moment and breathes him in.
He’s ALSO loved and adored by his big brother and big sister!
It feels like you can see into the future here – see big brother showing him the ropes and watching out for him and guiding him in the way that only brothers who are that much older can. As the oldest of seven kids, I can attest to this unique relationship, and I’m so excited for both of them to experience it!
And then there’s big sis. She’s seriously into this baby. Mary said big sis “wouldn’t let her lift a finger” in baby’s first weeks, because she wanted to help in every way she could. This little guy is super lucky to have these older siblings.
And it’s like he already knows it – that he hit the jackpot of awesome families! So very adored by everyone.
Little man, enjoy this family of yours. You are truly adored by some of the best.
