We’ve been a bit silent over here for the past few months. There are many reasons for the silence, but the biggest one is that I have been growing a baby in my belly (!) and the final months placed me on a couch and gave Ray a new title of Mr. Mom. Oh, and during the early months of my pregnancy, I had a broken foot. So…it’s been a bit of a crazy year for us, and thankfully, almost all of it happened in our off-season.

However, we still haven’t been as responsive as we’d prefer to be, so — to our couples — both past and future, thank you. For your patience with us and your understanding. That we are only human. And that sometimes, life throws a few curveballs. All at the same time. :)

We are truly grateful.

Our latest excuse for not posting anything is the best one we’ve had in awhile. His name is Rio Jude and he was welcomed into our arms on the first day of Spring, March 20th. One of my favorite photos Ray has ever taken of me follows (taken seconds after Rio was born) along with just one of our sweet boy.

We’re elated. What a joy it is to care for this tiny babe!
