hello, henry!



We’re so pleased to welcome the newest addition to our family, Henry Alexander, born January 14th. We’re all doing well and adjusting to life as a family of five!


Hazel and Max have been great, and so far seem pleased with their new little brother (though they’re both already so concerned about him playing with their toys that they’ve moved all their favorites to their bedroom!)


And an attempt at a group shot…phew! that was challenging. I have a feeling we won’t be getting a monthly sibling photo this time around!

    Many congratulations – you have beautiful children. Henry born on my mum’s 85th birthday! I loved having three, but you may not get much done for a while…. Love your quilts so I’m happy to wait for the next; enjoy your little one first.

    He is gorgeous! I’m so glad you sent pictures so quickly. The “big kids” look so cute next to him. I will miss the monthly update pics of everyone. I found when mine were little that the first one was life-altering, the second one added a little more stress, but by the time the third one came along, he just made a little ripple. I hope your experience is the same. Give that little doll a kiss for me!
