before and after


Yes, our little Augie's not so little anymore. Born 6 lbs 8 oz, now 9 lbs 8 oz. That's 50% of his body weight in one month! Needless to say, breastfeeding is going very well.

everything is new



Hah. These look like Augie's first feature interview photo shoot. Just hanging out on his nursing pillow, pontificating.

August is already one month old! The last month has been a surreal and happy blur of learning and serious sleep deprivation. It's been so cool to see him discover the world and change every day. We knew the first weeks would be trying and true enough, there have been some really hard days as we figured things out on a few hours sleep but most days have been the most epic, heart-bursting awesomeness of our lives.

Stuff Augie's into:
Chuckling in his sleep
Furrowing his brow
Making billy goat noises
Sighing sweetly
Smiling (first one at 10 days old)
Being naked
Looking out at the trees
Bath time
Eating! (duh)

Yep, it's true. Augie's gonna love his dad's former hometown.

Grandma and Grandpa Hall just arrived from New Hampshire and we're all very happy to see them!

poetics

Augie's talented young friend Ivy wrote him a sweet little poem:

For thousands of years,
people have loved
the world whether
they were pushed or shoved.
Some say it's smooth,
and some say it's mean,
but to tell you the truth,
it's wonderful, I've seen.

Welcome to the earth, August!

We love it and the clever girl who wrote it.
