Welcome home, Michael

4 and half years ago, Shelby became a big sister to our son Vin. And she has been a great dog with him. Here's a picture from back in the day.

Who's this dog?

Sunday, we came home from the hospital, with a new little addition to the family. Michael. Now that she knows how much fuss babies are, I was curious if she would have the same eager tail wagging reaction to another baby in the house.

Here she is, on the approach...

Her face stayed calm, but her tail looked like it was going to wag right off her butt. Steven had to hold her still for a photo.

And she goes in for the sniff and lick!

Right on the nose! Welcome to the family Michael.

(Is it just me, or do Vin and Michael really look similar?)

WOW!!!!! What a fantastic surprise! Congratulations to you guys. No wonder you were late with the Thanksgiving photos.
Maybe it's the different photo angles, but I think your boys look really different.
Shelby looks happy to have Michael to raise. Hope Vin is just as excited.

Congratulations! That is such awesome news. So glad (but not surprised) that Shelby loves her new brother. How does Vin feel about it?

Winnie--you sure can keep a secret! Belated congratulations to you and your husband and families! I think your new son has his own very handsome look and time will tell if he looks like Vin or not. Right now I don't see that much similarity, but two sons are such good luck!! You deserve some time off to savor the hard work and care it took to bring Michael into the world. Best Wishes!!
