Hello, Zain

Jun 15, 2017


Say hello to our brand new best friend.


birth announcement


Zain decided to break into the world a bit early after giving us quite the panic. So, I thought it would be fitting to share his birth announcement today! I’ll share more on our birth story soon, but for now we’re just getting adjusted to this new life and I am trying to soak up every second with him!

I had quite the list of things left to do during those last weeks before his due date but that all seems a bit insignificant now. Ever since he’s entered our lives we can’t stop staring at his sweet face, that cute head of hair and every tiny inch of him!

I tend to be a rather anxious person, so those first days home were spent trying to adjust to his schedule (or lack thereof), our ‘new normal’ and everything that comes with bringing a newborn home. After he came back up to his birth weight and I stopped worrying so much about whether he was getting enough food, I have simultaneously been excited for every one of his next milestones and not wanting him to change a bit. 

In the panic of us rushing to the hospital, I’m so glad I remembered to grab my camera before we headed out. Trevor & I were able to snap a few photos (the hospital ones were horrendous sadly) to remember this time and share with you guys! 

I also had several people message me about updating this post now that we have delivered and I will be doing that in the next week or so, so check back for that and thanks for all your tips and advice!
