By the time baby #3 rolls around, most parents are well versed in getting a baby to sleep, good at figuring out how to keep the older ones entertained, and have developed the ability to function on less sleep than before. This was true for Kathleen and Mike as they welcomed baby T just 8 days before this session. He barely made a peep the whole time I was there and already seemed accustomed to his older siblings’ squirminess as they held him. Big brother B seemed proud to take on a new role while big sister M seemed more curious than anything about this new member of their family.
Congratulations again, Kathleen and Mike, on your new baby boy! Wishing you moments of awe, anticipation of first smiles, and good naps for all.
