Welcome to the World, Baby Boy

Just 51 days after we lost my dad, we welcomed a new member to our family.

He was born in Luxembourg on March 17, 2013 at 8:50PM, after a quick and easy labor and delivery.



(We promise we’ll decide on a name for him soon.)

Weighing in at 9 pounds, 4 ounces and measuring 20 3/4 inches long, he’s a full pound heavier and an inch longer than his big sister was at birth.
(What can I say?  We make big babies up in here.)

(Oh, and that’s 4 kilos, 210 grams and 53 centimeters for all my metric system speaking friends.)

He’s perfect and beautiful and we are so in love with this little fella.

I can’t believe I get to be a girl and a boy mom. 

He’s the joy after our sorrow, the completion to our little family.

(And worth every minute of first trimester nausea.)


  1. So very many congratulations to you, sweet lady. Yes, the joy after sorrow, what a precious gift he is! Rest well and enjoy these first days as a mama of a wee boy! x

  2. I found you through Kelly's korner a year or so ago, & have enjoyed all your fun, foreign experiences & travel. Congratulations on your baby boy! I'm a mom to a girl then a boy too & love it so much! I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad, I'm sure he's smiling down on his new grandson. Many blessings to you & your family!
