Welcome Baby Christian!

 

At 4:41 pm on April 14, 2014, we welcomed baby Christian Joseph Ross into our family!  He was 8 lbs. 8oz. and 20 inches long.  His older brothers Roman, Adrian, and Jonathan came to see him when he was just a few hours old and were so happy to have a new member of the family!

Of course, I literally have hundreds of pictures of him already.  I decided to narrow it down to just a few that showed some of his new knitwear.  Now I’m working on some coordinating sweaters for my entire crew of boys!
