Guess Who's Here?

Nope, it's not Ryker....




It's not Britt...




It's Brolan Lee!




Pretty sure the name is now official because I caught his mommy signing the birth certificate forms:




(Yes, this means the infamous tattooed grandma will still need to buck up and endure the pain of changing her 'R' tattoo to a 'B')

Brolan showed up at 2:30 pm on December 1st, he scored in at 6 lbs 15 oz and finished at 20 inches long.




I think he was a little worried when he saw the crazy family he was born into.




That is until I came along and he realized he has the coolest aunt ever.




A much cooler aunt then this one.




You can see how he felt about her here:




This is the second grandchild on my side of the family and we are all WAY too excited about him. Poor Logan may feel like the second wheel for a while.




Speaking of which, Logan kept pointing and naming all of Brolan's body parts saying:

"Baby nose....Baby hair...Baby eye" At which point he poked Brolan's eye out.

Well, almost. Luckily we grabbed his hand before his chubby little finger careened into what would have been Brolan's empty eye socket.




The birth went great. Mommy and baby are both healthy and doing fine.

My brother on the other hand almost had a heart attack waiting for Brolan to arrive. He was having major anxiety with hands shaking and face white (which doesn't happen very often with this red-head's perma-crimson skin color) but once Brolan showed up, he was such a proud Papa!




The best two things about Brolan is first, his awesome crazy, curly, blondish, reddish, brownish, goldish hair.




And second, he came with dimples! Dimples like the ones on his mommy here:




But no matter how many times I would tickle his neck, pinch his chin, squeeze his cheek, kiss his nose or scream in his ear, he would not show his dimples to the camera.

(No, I didn't really scream in his ear, I'm the good aunt remember?)

This is the best shot I could get of those adorable dimples.




And like every family occasion, my dad and I were constantly snapping pictures which is when we accidentally shot each other at the same time.



Woops.
