Rhys Ronald

Yes, we are about a week late. However, we are pleased to announce the birth of our third son, Rhys Ronald. He was named after his Grandpa, who went to be with Jesus in 2009. He was born May 10, 2011 at 4:48pm. Rhys was 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and 20 inches long. He is by far the smallest baby we've had! His brothers are in love with him, as are we.
Rhys is adjusting well to life at home. He really is a great baby. He rarely fusses or cries unless he's hungry. As you can see from this photo, he looks nearly exactly like his brothers. I find it amazing that all three of my sons newborn photos look so similar.
Jayce and Grayson are constantly asking to hold Rhys. They often fight over whose "turn" it is or how much time the other boy has left to hold him. They are very curious about everything concerning their new brother, from diaper changes to feeding.
Of course, the big boys are always ready to entertain when Rhys is awake. They were very excited to see this "chair" that Rhys gets to use. Grayson is constantly trying to take Rhys his baby toys, and Jayce is always hugging and kissing on him, or just trying to be close by.
Of course, we are in love with our newest addition.

Oh Melissa! He is adorable! It's funny how you forget how tiny they are at first! I'm glad things are going well so far. Looks like the boys are in LOVE. Have I told you how much I love his name??? Because I do! (I almost named Sydney Reese...but it sounded too similar to Bryce). Maybe one day you are feeling brave, we can meet at the Gardens for a little splashing around. ;)
