Welcome Baby Jack

I want to introduce my reason for the lack of blog posts in recent months.

This little man has just made us a family of four and we couldn't be happier.

We also couldn't be more tired.

As our house adjusts to the needs of a newborn, we are all falling in love. He is amazing.

Our waking and sleeping hours have been adjusted to accommodate the schedule of this tiny little person who seems to have a fondness for midnight walks around the house.

I have been spending most of my time smelling his soft, fresh newborn scent and snuzzling his tiny body against mine. I rub my cheek on the fuzz that we loosely call 'hair' on the top of his little head constantly.

C and I are amazed at how well our daughter has adapted. She is gentle, protective and loving already.  Just yesterday she marveled that "Baby Jack's nose holes are a bit too small for me to pick his nose for him."
... Now that is some serious sibling love right there. She's already got your back (and your boogers), little man.

Having a baby here in Qatar wasn't exactly part of the plan, but J came into the world happy and healthy.

His journey begins here in this country. Can't wait to see where else life takes him.

Life just got a whole lot sleepier sweeter.
