Our newest member of the family joined us on Wednesday, March 25th.

We arrived at the hospital at 6:00 am, with induction starting just before 7:30.

Gino Was born at 12:27 pm after a very quick, intense labor. 

He weighed in at 7lb 10oz and was not only my biggest, but also my longest baby--at 21.5" long. 

We're back home (hello, 24 hour discharge! Wham bam, get out of here, ma'am!) and everyone is adjusting. Sal has been a fantastic big brother thus far- sneaking kisses on Gino's forehead and telling him not to be sad when he cries. 

Carla--well, at fourteen months--feels dethroned. Baby brother is ok so long as I'm not holding him or feeding him. So yeah--it's gonna take some time for everyone to find their groove, but it will happen sooner or later.

Right now we are just enjoying visitors and snuggling the newest little one. 


  1. Grama sandy and granpa bob were blessed to spend time playing with and loving these bambinos today.
    Sigh! So nice to have them back home

  2. Beautiful. Like, all your kids. Honestly. I adore that picture of Sal kissing Gino, but also totally love that picture of Carla staring at him because she looks downright adorable (baldie girl + cute dress).

    Congrats, Z fam!
