Cuatro is Here…and His Real Name Is…

Introducing Cuatro.

Whose real name is Austin.

He was born yesterday afternoon. All the big brothers came by to meet him last night…it was like a little testosterone filled electron bomb went off in our room. (Really, it was wild.)

We are all enamored with him and it’s so wonderful to have our fourth boy here with us, and to be enjoying these first precious moments with him!

For the next few weeks, I’ll be on “maternity leave” (if that’s possible for a blogger to do!) and am so grateful for the amazing help of my assistant Jenn, our contributors, as well as some fantastic bloggers. You likely won’t notice my absence as the blog will continue on like normal, as I spend this time off spend with Austin and the rest of my guys!

(And if you’re curious what we’re up to, I’ll be randomly sharing pictures here and there on Instagram and Twitter!)

Now back to my little bundle of joy…

    CONGRATS to you & the family on Quatro’s arrival! I pray for a wonderful, safe, smooth & healthy recovery for you and a great transition for your boys! I have 4 girls and 1 boy…if your next one’s a girl we are all set for prom dates! lol

    many blessings to your family!

  2. Kathleen says

    Congratulations! We also have four boys–17, 12, 8 and 16 months. Testosterone will definitely fill your house, but he’ll add even more joy to your lives. Enjoy getting to know your new son!

    Congrats! My you are a brave lady! Having all that testosterone in on house! But I know you wouldn’t have it any other way!

  4. Robin Jones says

    Congratulations! I have trouble keeping up with one boy and his little sister! Have a blast and enjoy this special bonding time.

    That’s great! He is handsome! Do you believe in arranged marriages (just kidding!) My great-niece, Emma Jean, was born at 2:05 am on the 15th at a hospital to remain unnamed in Houston. She is a beautiful baby just like your Austin!
