Welcome baby Cian!
Cian Kevin Holohan just couldn't wait any longer to meet his family and arrived 4 weeks early weighing just 4lb 8oz on Monday the 9th June. He's small but perfectly healthy and we can't wait to meet him in person. Leah loves her baby "brother"???? huh? and Cathal was a bit put out about not being the only Grandson anymore but when he saw the pics he decided it was o.k.!! He has huge brown eyes and already looking all around him taking it all in. Daddy informs us they are both (Mommy and Cian) being allowed home tomorrow. So we are so excited to see the new Hoolie. Apparantly he looks like Jerry, as if life wasn't tough enough....!!!!
There'll be a hoo-haa in Athlone soon when things settle. Obviously the doitin is small and needs to build up his strength but if there's someone to do it, it's a Hoolie! He comes from good stock.
I feel a bit left out whenever Jerry gets a new niece or nephew because although I feel they are my nieces and nephew I still feel a bit "outside the circle". I don't know if it's because me and Jerry aren't married yet (and then they would HAVE to call me Auntie Neasa) or if it's because it's not one of my siblings' child? I see my sis's and bro having fun and spoiling my kids and I feel a little miffed sometimes. I want to be the fun Auntie, the Cool Auntie, the Auntie That Takes Me For Spins, and then gets to hand them back. I think I'd be a much nicer/funner/cooler Auntie than I am a Mom. Come on Team O'Donnell, lets get it together and make Neasa an Auntie. I promise I won't get their ears pierced.....
