And now there are four

We arrived in Cincy in time (Wednesday, September 23) to give a very expectant momma and daddy a little relief before baby #2 arrived, help where needed, and go to the park with a soon to be big sister!

Before baby arrived, we got in a few trips to the park and some wagon rides, dinner at Skyline, a (double) stroller put together and a toddler bedroom set up.

Then in the wee hours of the morning on September 25th Cara and Tim left their home for the last time as a family of 3, and parents of one.

Before Sydney, Papa and Nana had even had our breakfast.... 
Harrison Joseph Cappel 
arrived on the scene at 7:50 am
on Friday, September 25, 2015.
Exactly 17 months to the day that Sydney was born.

He weighed in at a whopping 10 pounds and 13.2 ounces, with a length of 21 inches!
(We grow 'em big in our family!)

Nicknamed "Moose" by one of the special care nursery nurses, our big/little guy spent a couple nights in the special care nursery while he worked on getting his blood sugars up.

 We visited the hospital twice a day -- before and after naps :)

 I think it was good for everybody!

  Sydney loved visiting momma and daddy

Nana and Papa got to visit and get to know Harrison

Sydney got to 
brush up on her stethoscope skills

and hitch a few rides through the corridors

This Papa and Nana are beyond grateful that these Cincy kids don't mind us hanging around when
babies arrive --- and always welcome our visits.
The time we are spend with them is so precious to us.


  1. So many good memories -- thanks for posting!

    Beautiful post, Nana! Love you, and congratulations again on the new addition to the family!

  3. He's adorable! So glad to see you blogging again. Congratulations grandpa and grandma!

  4. Those grand babies are just precious, so glad you get to see them often, but I'm sure not often enough. Sydney suddenly seems so big, she's such a sweetie, and Harrison is just perfect. Brice had him beat by .8 ounces and one inch. :)

  5. Love those sweet kids! I'm so glad you and Kirk were able to be there just in time :) I know your time there was invaluable to them!
