Our Newest Addition - Rowan Peter Parreira

It has been way too long - and I have sooo much to write regarding an update for Ciaran and Shay's development.  Now that I am off work - I am hoping to have more time to dedicate to blogging as it is such a great way to keep track of what is going on in our lives.  Here's to hoping.

In the meantime, I want to introduce Ciaran and Shay's newest brother - Rowan Peter Parreira born on Tuesday March 8, 2011 at 8:33 am weighing 8lbs 6oz.  After a pregnancy filled with a great deal of anxiety around possibly having another preterm baby - I have to say that bringing Rowan into this world could not have gone more perfectly.  It was a magical moment that I will cherish forever.  I am grateful that I was again reminded of the true miracle of life and how truly blessed we are that Ciaran and Shay are doing as well as they are considering their rough entry into the world.  I have so much to write about my pregnancy with Rowan - but that will have to wait for another day - I don't have the emotional energy today to get into it.

Without further a due - here is Rowan...
