the ten best days. ever.

by Janetha on August 30, 2014

in oh baby

hi! so, i had a baby last week. meet fox!


yep, he decided to come early. one week exactly. i will have to share that story sometime soon! i was in labor for almost 22 hours.. and then he was here! august 21st at 6:21 pm was the best moment in my life thus far. (and, because you know i am a number nerd, of course i was thrilled that he was born at 18:21 on 8/21!) his middle name is owen.

what they say is true.. the moment you meet that baby, your whole world changes. for the better. every time i look at him, smell him, or even think about him.. my heart explodes. and then it goes back together so it can explode again. and again and again.

i don’t feel like rambling.. go figure.. i just want to hang out with him. but i will leave you with a plethora of photos of the best ten days with this little man. all 6 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches of him.

He already looks so old and alert! Big, huge congrats to you and Marshall, my friend. And since you’re a numbers geek, I was born on 8-1-81 and I weighed 8lb 1ounce. Go me!

Congratulations! He is sooooo precious! I’m not sure about wanting kids and I know you said you used to not want them so this gives me hope that I will one day know 100% that I do want at least one…so thank you for that! Enjoy this time because they are just too adorable when they are this young, he is gorgeous, you look great, have fun with your new bigger family!

Congratulations!! My goodness, he is seriously so incredibly adorable! I love his name too, so unique! And omg, 22 hour labor – you deserve some kind of medal or award or something lol, I can’t even imagine what that must have been like. So happy for you though, and I can’t wait to hear more about your family adventures!
