Hello Kane!

I cannot wait to write out Kane's birth story!!!  But I want to take my time and also wait for the photos from his birth.  Thankfully I got a little sneak peek though!  He was born at home in the water during a little summer storm.  Both big brothers were there to offer their support & to greet him!  We are settling in nicely as a family of five & enjoying these slow lazy days together.  I'm having a wonderfully quick recovery, but still trying to take it easy.  So far, Kane has been a completely chill baby.  He's loves being held and in all the action even though he sleeps through it all.  Looking forward to more awake time from him, so I can keep staring into those eyes...  which I believe will stay blue!  He closely resembles both brothers and is definitely a Keenan boy, but I think he leans a little more towards Liam's body type and looks.  We'll see!  I've already taken a ridiculous amount of photos, so here's a little glimpse at the last three days..



 
Kane latched right on shortly after birth, and breastfeeding has been going smoothly for us.  I'm mostly spending my days snuggled up in bed with him and just nursing.  Some of the best times!  Both big brothers are completely smitten!  It's kisses and pats and pets all day long.  I have fallen even more completely in love with them both, just watching them transition into their new roles.  Especially Liam was has an even greater understanding of it all now that he is five.  I can truly see how much he loves Kane.  And Finn is obsessed as well, with plenty of kisses for baby.  He's also my crazy wild two year old right now.  So while he's still a handful, as far as Kane is concerned, he's wonderful!  Seeing siblings together makes me think that I could have 10 more kids!  And so far (only a few days in), transitioning to three has been easy.  We really only feel outnumbered at bedtime; yet, somehow we are all adjusting to a new normal.  But as soon as Conor goes back to work, I know the true reality of having three will really set in!




These first few days are so incredibly special but also fleeting.  I want time to just stop for a bit.  I want this newborn stage to last forever.  But I also cannot wait to watch our family grow.  And for now I stop, because my post partum hormones just cannot handle all these emotions!
