Uncle Dan!

Uncle Dan is here! My brother arrived safely in Chicago and made his way over to meet his new nephew.


First time he's ever held an infant--looks like he's a natural!





Ben also had his first real bath. He didn't hate it too much. Unfortunately I was unable to get a "during" picture (all hands were on deck, naturally) so the best I could do was an "after" picture.

Ben then proceeded to take a 3 hour nap...I think we will be bathing him frequently!

After a quick visit from Joey and Dad (on their way to a Bulls game) and Gram (Carole) and Gramps (Phos), we relaxed until it was time to venture out to Leah's for New Years.

Home by 9:30 and in bed by 10:30, I can't think of a better way to ring in the new year...with some Zs!

Here's to 2009, certain to be a very exciting year.

OK, that's just weird. Because, in my mind, your brother is permanently about 10 years old. :-)

Glad the bath went well! We have done one every night before bed since they were about 8-10 weeks old, and I swear it helped them go to sleep more easily.

He continues to look like the sweetest darn baby that ever was!
