Brotherly Love

I can't believe it's been over 3 weeks since Zachary Max Raymond arrived! Owen was a bit skeptical at first, not wanting to get too close when he came to visit us at the hospital on the day Zack was born:

We convinced him to get a bit closer but he still was more interested in a piece of candy than his baby brother:
But how quickly things change!

Always the observant type, when Zack and I first came home on Saturday, June 18, Owen would sit next to us on the couch and watch us but was not ready to touch the little guy.

But then, after Owen's nap, Zack gave Owen a special "Thank You For Being My Big Brother" bicycle. And Owen was hooked! On the bike and on his little brother. First, he started saying that he was glad Meatball came out of my belly. Then, he started asking if he could kiss the baby or hold him on his lap. Here are a few of my favorite brother shots:

I love my boys!


  1. So cute! I love it! Glad you guys are doing well and settling happily into being a family of four :)

  2. Andrew and I got a little misty-eyed over this post, Marisa! You are such a sensitive Mommy.
