Meet our Son

Oh, hello world, hello June! And hello, I have a one week old baby today! In case you missed the news on Instagram, our little man made his debut into the world 19 days before his due date, on 5/26/16 at 6:45 PM. World, meet our son.


His arrival was nothing like I'd ever hoped or planned for and to be honest, Jared and I are still trying to process everything that has happened in the past week. After five looong days in the hospital, we are just so thrilled to be home with this little sweetie and we're so thankful for his health and for mine as well.

Thank you EVERYONE for all the well wishes and prayers- they have meant everything to us! Please continue to pray for a speedy recovery for me (I don't care what anyone says- having a csection is rough) I'll be back at some point with more details and updates, I'm sure ;) Right now I'm enjoying every second with my new family of three!
