"A beautiful brother..."

Wes Isaac Brown | May 11, 2012 | 3:21 am | 7lb 2oz | 21 inches

In the early hours of the morning of May 11th, Courtney and I welcomed our second beautiful son into this world. As emotional as my first delivery was, I never expected this one to be even moreso. 

Maybe it is because I am a Mama already and know how much I am going to love this little being or maybe it was because it progressed so much more quickly this time around. All I know is that I sobbed when he was born and I could only hear his cries and hadn’t even laid eyes on him yet. And when I finally saw my first glances of our new son, I immediately saw so much of Will in him. Of course, as the days have gone by and I stare at him for hours on end, I can see all of the differences as well but I think that, as he grows, there will be no mistaken the fact that they are brothers. 

He is so incredibly gorgeous and I can’t even begin to explain how in love we are and how wonderful our house feels with our two boys. We are definitely a family now and we look forward to everything the future has in store. Wes has definitely been spoiling us with lots of sleep but it still doesn’t mean that I am not getting a thing done because I am so busy just sitting and watching him all day long. I know how quickly this time passes and I am trying to breathe in every moment of his newness.
