Welcome, Zachary!

in misc.


The lapse in posts on my blog hasn’t been due to my usual laziness, but to our gorgeous new son – Zachary David.  Zachary was born on April 2nd at 9:39 p.m. weighing in at 8 lbs. 1 oz and 20.5″ long – although, at his first pediatrician’s appointment they measured him at 21.5″, which I think is more accurate because this little boy is LONG!

We are totally in love with him and can’t believe how cute he is.  In this pic, I only caught the tail end of his smile, but I can assure you his smile will make anyone and everyone smile. :)

Sure, we’re still learning as new parents and have had some, “oh my god, we don’t know what we’re doing!” moments, but for the most part, we’ve been adjusting to this new little person in our life well.

I do have a few recipes I didn’t have a chance to post before Zachary’s arrival, so hopefully I’ll have a minute to post those at some point, but please bear with me as the new posts probably won’t be as frequent for a while.

Congrats! He’s gorgeous. I am new to your blog, and since I read new-to-me blogs from the very beginning, I didn’t know you were pregnant. I’m sure everyone’s told you this, but here it is again from a total stranger: savor every single moment. My “baby” (also named Zachary) will be 9 next month. (His last single-digit birthday! How did that happen???!!) I just got a call from the school: please bring him some more pants; he ripped out the knee (practically down to the ankle). That’ll be you before you know it!
