One week ago today, we celebrated the arrival of our newest family member, Kellan Alexander Hamilton. Our cameras have been firing off shots left and right but it will be a little slow going to get photos posted. Kellan is changing, growing and looking like Oliver more and more every day. He has a very sweet disposition and (so far) has been very easy going. Oliver has a special way with him that calms him down and Oliver seems to know exactly what he needs. Kellan is the first person that Oliver looks for when he gets up in the morning or enters a room. I hope the two of these boys continue this special bond for many years to come.
Kellan's first poopy diaper change. Thanks Dad!
The one eye peek to make sure we are still there, or wondering how many pictures we will take.
Grandma meets Kellan for the first time!
My Mom (Grandma) is here for two weeks to help out. It has been a huge help to have her here and I'm already sad that she will be leaving soon.
Only six hour later, Oliver meets his little brother. This was his first expression, pure joy and excitement.
Oliver is such a gentle child, especially with his sister Madalyn (as he has referred to her this week) and his little brother Kellan.
Kellan's first kiss from his big brother. Oliver LOVES to kiss and hug on his little brother.

How can you resist these puppy dog eyes?
Oliver was jealous of the matching bracelets that Mommy, Daddy and Kellan had. The nurse was awesome and gave him a matching bracelet with a sheriff's star to match his cowboy shirt. I'm thinking the nurse understood the importance of this since she has four kids under the age of six herself.
It took a good 20 minutes for Oliver to warm up to me when he came in the room. After seeing these pictures, I know why. Mommy looked a little scary. YIKES! Plus, it was probably a shock to see me in the hospital bed with a baby. Hmm... what was going on while Oliver was at school?
He eventually warmed up enough to have a dinner picnic on my bed and share my fries.
Oliver, Kellan and Mommy together for the first time.
We have a ton more photos to share and a ton from Grandma. I'll be posting as I get a chance.
We can't wait to share our newest addition with everyone as well as the usual star of the blog, Oliver!
