After 45 hours of labor Braddock Bear (that's what Daddy's calling him!)

Mommy is doing well and brother Josiah is still pretty unaware
but has noticed a little bundle in Mommy's arms and pointed to him and said "baby!"Here are his precious feet! They are pretty long!
The Waage boy cousins!
Ready to head home!

Bye for now,
A proud Daddy of two boys

My Brother!

I just wanted to let you all know that my brother is coming soon,
and I have NO IDEA what's coming my way!
I kind of am interested in my Mama's tummy but
I don't understand there's a baby in there.
I still think that I'M a baby and I kiss "the baby" anytime I see a mirror!
I'm just as adorable as can be these days... I pretty much repeat anything
anyone says and do my best to carry on a conversation.
My favorite word is, "uh-oh!" and
I'm absolutely fascinated with "trutts" (trucks)!

In case you are wondering about the "B"

up there that my Mommy is holding,
it stands for "baby", "brother", and for BRADDOCK!
My little brother's name is Braddock Paul Musilli.

I like to say it, "Brah-ick".

I'm not sure if you've ever heard of the boxer that the movie Cinderella Man was made after, but his name was James J. Braddock. Mommy heard that name when we were trying to pick a name for this little peanut and remembered what an incredible man was portrayed in the film. She did a little research and read up on him and it was all true- a man of amazing strength and honor that supported and kept his family together during the Great Depression by boxing. He even paid back the welfare money that he "borrowed" -amazing!
We've all decided it's a good, strong, manly name!
Oh, and his middle name is the same as mine, Paul :)
Isn't that cool? We are BOTH named after Daddy!

Just wanted to share that with you and ask you to pray for my family as we are going to expand soon. Momma would like a faster labor, Daddy would like God to provide for all FOUR of us financially as he continues to work very hard owning Fitness Together, and I'd like prayer for a little understanding and help with the transition of sharing my parents with a baby brother! Love to you all!
(AKA- BIG Brother!)
