Introducing Hudson


Aron and I are so happy and proud to introduce Hudson Paxtyn, born late Sunday night.
Our beautiful little boy has us wrapped around his teeny, tiny little fingers and toes–ten each!–already, and we just can’t believe they really let us leave the hospital with such a precious package. We’re in love.

We’ll be taking some time to get to know this incredible little boy, so we have some wonderful friends and fellow bloggers lined up to guest post (here and on baby mine) while we do. We’ll also no doubt pop in from time-to-time, in both spots, with updates. 

It's a ...
