Liam and Rowan

Photo says it all. Liam is a great big brother. When Rowan cries, Liam comes running from some remote corner of the house with a pacifier in his hand. He puts it up to Rowan's lips and smacks his lips just like Mommy to get Rowan to start sucking. It's just too sweet.

Oh Boy!

I'm breaking an 11-month sabbatical from my personal blog for a very good reason - this morning at at 3:12AM, Rowan Brennan Funke (a.k.a. "Speedy") came into this world, barely two hours after arriving at the hospital.

Frances had a few hours of contractions, we spoke to our pal Krista (also, our Doula), and when they started getting uncomfortable . After cutting it a little close with Liam's birth (Fran was in very intense contractions en route to the hospital), we decided we'd be more conservative this time. Turns out we weren't conservative at all, had we waited any longer I think we would have been in trouble. After two intense hours, Rowan came out strong and screaming (just like his Mommy). He is utterly perfect.

I'm so proud of our new little one, who thus far has shown himself to be a good eater and sleeper...we'll see how that goes in the coming weeks.

I think Liam is gonna be a great big bro...
