baby Hawk

As many of you have guessed, we got to meet Ace last weekend! Though his due date was November 28th, we were hoping for a December 3rd birthday (for numerous, completely irrational reasons). On Thursday, December 2nd, we took a very brisk 45 minute walk in very cold weather. I could feel something changing as the walk progressed and my speed and ease decreased. Within 10 minutes of returning home and beginning to sip some hot cocoa, my water broke and sent us into a very beautiful, personal, life-changing 13 hour journey.

At the end, we met our son.

Allow me to introduce you to our favorite person, Cormac Xavier, coming in at a whopping 8 lb 11 oz, 22 in.

I will do my best to resume blogging everyday now that Hawk is back to work, but I'm sure you'll understad if I miss a day.

And next Monday, we're hosting another giveaway!!

Thank you for the well wishes and even the blog stalking (love it, neighbor!). We couldn't be happier!
