welcome to our world

hello friends. i just got home from the hospital and am only here for a few moments to put these pictures up here so that all of you can meet our new baby boy:

caedmon charles milinovich.

here is his first picture. right after delivery.

this is him on the scale. you might be able to see that he weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces (exactly a pound less than jack). he was also 20 inches long.

my mom and dad are in town, which is a huge help, and they brought jack in to meet his baby brother. here he is with his pappy holding cade.

there's me. the proud papa. i cried like a baby when he emerged. i'm such a softie. i can't believe how little and light he is. i guess i forgot. he has a little bit of hair, and its red! he's got a much lighter complection than jack did when he was born, and his eyes are blue. i've been calling him my little irishman!

here's cade with his mommy. she did an awesome job all through labor, and i'm proud of her. she looks beautiful and is feeling much better than she did after delivering jack.
so, we are elated. thank you all for your prayers and support. i probably won't be posting for a couple of more days, but check back in on friday or saturday for more info.

Woohoo - pictures! He's beautiful - I loved seeing Jack holding his baby brother. Before you know it they'll be wrestling each other and rough housing - like my two have decided to do lately - hopefully it's not for another year or so, but you never know with boys. Shannon looks great of course! Enjoy these next few chaotic weeks/months - I found they fly by in the blink of an eye...

Congratulations Greg! Another redhead in the family.We are very excited for you. It is amazing how quickly we forget how small and light newborns are. Shannon looks wonderful, as well as Caedmon. Give him a kiss from all of us.

What a beautiful baby! He's really gorgeous! Congratulations! And I'm so glad it went better for Shannon this time around. I can't wait to get all the gory details, but I'll let Shannon do that!! :)What can I say, I'm a birth junkie.
Way to go!
