Back to the Real World…

I have come back for another guest post…

And so the time for this Irishman has come to return to the real world. The last 2 weeks have flown by. I had taken a little bit of time off from work knowing that I would need to be on hand when Jenny went in to the hospital. There were days that were challenging and tiring, and I have learned to appreciate times when I go to sleep. However, each day brought something new and it was truly an amazing couple of weeks. From welcoming the arrival of baby Sean and introducing him to Caitlin,to taking care of Caitlin and spoiling her that extra little bit, and then taking care of Mommy, the last two weeks have been all about family. It is ultimately the best feeling in the world to look at the smiling faces and to hear the familiar voices call out.

Below I have picked out what were some of my favorite pictures over the last while. I feel they show what we are all about. Enjoy!
