Introducing James McNally Olsen...

“Every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.” -Charles Dickens

Andrew and Caitlin’s baby didn’t arrive on Paige’s birthday like we’d hoped but at 2 am on Friday, September 23rd, James McNally Olsen, weighing 7 pounds 6 ounces, entered the world.

He looks just like Andrew! Seriously, check out that nose! In fact, it’s incredible to me how newborns already resemble their parents. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising, but it is.

Cass and Mairead (the proud maternal grandma and aunt), jumped in their car, driving from Salt Lake to Las Vegas, as soon as Caitlin was admitted to the hospital. They arrived right after the birth but just in time for Caitlin to grab Mairead and insist that labor “really isn’t that bad.” So, apparently Caitlin was pretty stoic through the whole delivery (four pushes and out came James!).

Lisa and Bruce will fly down today to meet their new grandson and I guess we’ll get to meet James when the Olsen crew comes to visit their host of Bay Area relatives (Bo, Kira, Liam, Mairead, Knudsens, etc).

“Make no mistake about why these babies are here - they are here to replace us.” -Jerry Seinfeld
