Nicholas David Irwin was born on October 9 at 5:43 pm, weighing in at 7 lbs, 10 oz of pure cuteness!

I’ll post more about the whole experience and how parenthood is going later (spoiler: I’ve been pleasantly surprised), but right now the dairy farm (me) is working overtime trying to get this little guy to bulk up! It’s all boobs, bottles and babies over here…

The baby’s room

Well, eight days before my due date, we finally have the baby’s room ready! I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. It’s cozy and colorful and full of adorable animals (including Gatsby).

Check it out!

And speaking of babies (which I’ve been doing a lot of lately), my sister had hers! Little Weston was born a little over a week ago, and was kind of enough to let me practice my newborn holding skills on him.

So I guess it’s my turn next… (eek)
