He's 6 today - days that is

Welcome to Sean's blog - he's been home for two days now, and we're all starting to get the hang of things. Sean is sleeping for a couple of hours at a time, eating well, producing diapers to be changed like there's no tomorrow. Mom and Dad are getting the basics down ok, for first timers.

Amber and Buddy (our golden retrievers) are adjusting well to having Sean in the house. Amber in particular seems to be guarding Sean, often placing herself between him and the door so that nothing gets past her. Buddy also seems to be never too far away either, though guarding is not really his style. He's more there to lend emotional support, in the form of a big smile and a constant wag. Venus, the family kitty, is definitely low creature on the totem pole these days. Poor thing.

Mom continues to do well, healing from the surgery and generally feeling better day by day. Dad is getting used to the lack of sleep and the seemingly endless amount of laundry that Sean generates each day.

We'll be updating this page pretty regularly - also, be sure to check out Sean's photo section at the upper right.

Sean is beautiful! It only gets better! Wow a whopping 6 days old - He's an old man by now ..... glad to read the dogs are adjusting well. Tell them to hang on because once Sean Michael starts to feed himself the real fun will begin - give my love to the kitty
