He's here!

Introducing Conor!

Conor Wells Olson made his grand debut on 3/28/10 at 6:13 AM. He weighed in at a whopping 7 pounds, 9 ounces and measured 20 1/2 inches long. He surprised everyone with a rather speedy arrival (the doctors and nurses had to step up their prep time a bit because Conor was going to wait for no one!). He sports a very full head of dark hair, which is the topic of many conversations and comments.

We came home from the hospital on the 29th, which was Eric's birthday (talk about a birthday to remember) and, while grateful for the amazing care we received at the hospital, were very glad to come home and learn what our new "normal" entails.

Conor has already proven himself to be a very sweet baby; he loves to curl up with whoever is holding him. Big sister Annika is quite impressed with her little brother and wants to help Mommy and Daddy do things like feed and burp the baby, as well as soothe him when he cries.
We are working out a few kinks in terms of Annika's willingness to share Mommy and Daddy, but fully expected this time of adjustment for all of us.

Fortunately, Conor has proven himself to be a good sleeper thus far (knock on wood), so we're all at least somewhat rested and ready for what each day has for us.
