Oh, how we love our little Cub!  We planned to have another baby AFTER we made the big move, but God had other plans.  I was extremely nervous about having a baby, selling a house, moving and unpacking all within a few weeks last summer... but as He always does, God worked it out.  And after the fact, I had to admit to Adrian that the sweetness of Orion actually made the whole transition more pleasant for me ~ and less of a burden.  God knows what he's doing.  

We are so glad to have our baby boy. He has been our easiest baby in many ways.  When we tell people that, they think it because we know how to handle a baby the 5th time around.  We know better!  :)  This little boy has been the mildest, quietest, non-complaining baby ever.  He was born with a pleasant little smirk on his face.  He began smiling the night we brought him home, and has smiled every day since then.  I have pictures to prove it!  He has been the best eater and sleeper.  He is our 1st child that didn't resist the car seat.  He never went through stranger anxiety, wanting only mom.  He goes around making happy noises and laughing.  When he needs something, he just kind of pouts ~ what a Cub!
