Remember THIS POST (click here)…well do I have exciting news! With about 36 hours of notice that they were becoming first time parents – Robert and Rachel welcomed Griffin into their arms, hearts and families. He is one of the cutest baby boys and has the greatest head of hair. His parents are completely smitten and are some of the most at ease, natural first time parents I have ever met. They had a really good thing going as a couple and it is SO MUCH fun to see the great thing they have going now as a family. This tiny guy has one incredible story of love both from his amazing birth parents to his mom and dad – it is just beautiful! Rachel told me a month or so ago that our kids could be in the same grade – she was right, they are about 4 weeks apart.
I have gotten several phone calls, emails and in person questions asking when Griffin would be making his blog debut…here you go:
These next 3 are my favorites. The night before she had him, Griffin’s birth mom packed this basket full of essential items for Robert and Rachel. She knew they didn’t have much time to prepare…how incredibly strong, beautiful, and selfless is that! I so hope to meet her one day…
I love baby yawns!
He likes me. He really likes me.
Yeah, it didn’t take long for him to realize how cool his Aunt Ashley is (Rach says I need a new name b/c that is hard for a kid to say).
