Welcome, Justin

First – thank you to everyone who sent good wishes via their comments, emails and text messages yesterday. I heart you all! It was a great day all around, even though by the end of it, Grammie Fink and Grandpa Thriller were reminded of the reason why people usually have toddlers in their 20s and 30s. Nevertheless, we had a ball spending the day with Jake (aka, The Little Engine That Did, Does, and Always Will).

So without further ado: Justin Nicolas, 8 lbs., 3 oz. (Photos are clicky.)

It was interesting to watch Jake with Justin. Initially, he wasn’t too thrilled; he didn’t want much to do with him. Later, however, he warmed up and was actually curious about him. Big day for big brother as well…

So it was a fabulous day, and I appreciate the luv you’ve shown me and my fam. (RD, it was great to run into you at the hospital! Thanks for going to see the kids.)

Avast — it’s Finkday already. I might have to party. Can I get an amen, there, Lars?? :-)

Have a most excellent day, fiends. You’re the beast.

      That’s exactly what my family talked about — in almost every photo, he appears to be scanning us like we’re peculiar aliens. If only we could know what they’re thinking…

    YOU look beautiful in these pictures, Gramma. He does have thoughtful eyes. I’m happy for all of you.

    Love you, you know.

      And I love you, Bar Jai sweety. Thanks for the compliment. I heard your baby played well in spite of the heartbreaker final score. He’s a keeper!
