baby mine, don't you cry. baby mine, dry your eyes. rest your head close to my heart, never to part, baby of mine.

Hello Friends! I was about to type "Good Morning" but just realized that it is most definitely AFTER noon. Please forgive my lack of awareness of the time of day. You see, we have managed to keep a tiny human alive and well for a whole week now! Said tiny human is now happily snoozing on my chest, and I'm telling you, my heart is bursting with joy with every little snore.

Marshall William Meehan arrived at 8:57 am on Wednesday, January 11th, and we couldn't be more in love.

First family photo!
He is named for both of his grandfathers, and two of his great grandfathers. Little man has quite the legacy to live up to!

With his namesakes on his birthday.
In the past week, we have been amazed by our new found capacity to love. I feel like the grinch in that I know my heart has grown by at least 3 sizes. We're learning on the job, and I hope you forgive us one day for all the things you're having to put up with while we figure it out. You are very resilient and seem not to mind our inadequacy once it finally dawns on us whatever it is you needed in the first place.

Thank you for choosing us to be your parents. We love you so so much, and are so grateful that we get to experience each new day with you.


Mama and Daddy :)
