Home and settling in

Everything seems to be going well so far. Cainan came home with Mat and Aunt Betty on Wed. evening the 22nd. They were all tired, but everyone was happy at the airport. We got Cainan home and he let me hold him and feed him before we settled him into bed for the night. He went down without a hitch and slept all night. I had to wake him at 8am to try and get him adjusted to the time change. He woke up happy and ready to play. He is a little fire ball! He played with Aunt Betty and I all morning just checking out all of his new toys and seeing all the fun things to do. Nap time was no problem - a quick pat on the back and he was out. He slept for 3 hours and I woke him again! By this time his sisters were home from school, and they were ready to play with him. Well, atleast Arlington (the 4 1/2 year old) was. Finley wasn't sure about the person that was going to be sharing her toys. She didn't take too kindly to him and pinched him in the first few minutes of seeing him. But that was to be expected! Given the fact that they are only 30 days apart - there is going to be some rivalry!
Friday -I had all three kids here with us today. It went well, thanks to the fact that Aunt Betty is staying with us a few more days. Finley was cranky because she has been sick, but by this afternoon, she was better adjusted to Cainan. They actually played together quietly for a little while. Cainan remains happy and a great sleeper and an unbelievable eater! He just takes everything in stride, and hardly ever cries. We got really lucky with such a good boy.
He is sleeping in his own room, in his own bed - no adjustment issues at all with sleep. He goes right down. We are right across the hall if he would need us, but he hasn't woken at night yet!
So that is our story so far. He is very sweet, and cute, and we feel so very lucky that he is part of our family. Here are a few pictures of our new little guy. Oh, and by the way - we gave the hippie a haircut. Just a small one.

Thank you SO much for the update, of course I've been wondering how things are going. Three little ones will keep you very busy, but it is a true labor of love. Hugs and kisses to all. Nanny
