We are so insanely in love.

For those of you who think we named him after footwear, theres a little more to it than that! His middle name is Js dad’s high school nickname. We wanted his middle name to have family ties, so Boots it is:) And besides, now he has an automatic fun nickname!

I’ll be back sometime soon with the details on his beautiful natural birth, but in the mean time… we are getting in all the kisses, coo’s, snuggles, and wide eyed stares we can get.

    MASSIVE congratulations to you, my lovely. I am SO excited for you. And this somehow makes it all the more real for me too… I’m due in a couple of weeks and you know I’ve been stalking your whole pregnancy, right? 😉

    I am absolutely thrilled that it sounds as though it all went well. Well done!

    Big hugs from England,

    Silly me, for some reason I wasn’t expecting this just yet. Maybe because mine were all late and there is that school of thought that first babies are usually late . .so WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE.

    My eyes immediately filled with tears of course, looking at that beautiful photo.
