My Uncle and his family brought the boys up to the hospital on Sunday afternoon after naps (a BIG thanks to my cousin, Hannah, who took all of these pictures. I'm so grateful she captured these moments for us!). Brayden was SO excited. Connor kind of acted like Tyler wasn't there, which apparently is common with kids his age and a new sibling (he did request to hold him right before they left).
so proud in their big brother shirts

the boys had picked out a Build a Bear the week before for Tyler. Brayden was so excited to give it to him, but then was so confused when Tyler didn't grab it :)
Brayden's facial expressions were the best.
melt. my. heart.
Connor likes to say "I hold and pet baby Tyler."
and of course, Tyler had to get some love from the rest of the family too. I love this picture of Tyler with his Great Uncle Paul (and his namesake!).
I'm so appreciative of all of the comments, emails and messages over the past week congratulating us on Tyler. A lot of you have asked how we are holding up... we are doing well, relatively speaking. There are some crazy moments, but all things considered we're doing great. It should be noted that we have an extra set of helping hands this week with my mom, which makes all the difference in the world. I may be singing a different song when her plane takes off next weekend :)
