hey friends! i’m popping in today to share someone very special with you. (if you follow me over on instagram, you met him last week!) our sweet baby boy was born last tuesday, september 3rd weighing 6lbs 11oz and measuring 18.5″ tall. his name is bear james forkner. bear because we love it and james after his great grandfather.
though i’m sure i’ll share his birth story soon, in short we’re both doing great. i’m healing quickly and feel nearly back to normal. bear is absolutely wonderful. he’s so sweet tempered! he hasn’t even cried for more than a few seconds (yet). he’s feeding beautifully and had an excellent first check up. he’s full of personality, silly expressions and cute stretches.
we’re completely in love and smitten by him. i didn’t know i was capable of loving someone so much, so quickly. we feel so blessed!
