For those who haven’t heard, we have a new member of the family! Baby Wyatt was born in February and we adopted him a few days later. My wife flew out to Arizona to pick him up while big bro and I kept the household running here in New Hampshire.

This was a very unexpected and happy surprise, by the way – we had really only begun the adoption paperwork in December, and he was home with us less than two weeks after placement. Even he can’t believe the story:

Wyatt is suspicious

Our collective bewilderment aside, we are all doing fine. Baby is healthy and settling in well. Big bro is great at his new role and the grown-ups are even sleeping every so often.

Owen and Wyatt are happy brothers. All four Carlsons smiley baby Wyatt
