    Final Addition to the Family!

    Kaiden is here, was born Friday at 4:51pm. We made it to exactly 32 weeks gestation like his big bro Ronan. He weighted in at 4 pounds even and 17.5 inches long. He has a tough few weeks ahead of him in the NICU but we are just so happy he is here and getting the care he needs.

    Please be good for Ms. O'Connor and finish up the year strong. I will come in to see you as soon as I can move safely …
