Well... I should probably announce that I had my baby, before any more time passes!! haha.


Alder Grant Williamson was born a week before his due date on August 10, 2011 at 8:12am. He weighed 8lbs, 1 ounce and was 20 inches long. Here's the birth announcement we sent out to friends and family:




Life with baby is definitely an adjustment, but the last month has been so incredible! Time is going by WAY too fast. I'm sure you all can relate!


I'm married to a photographer, so we've been taking LOTS of photos of him!! Here's one from a photoshoot that the hubby did when he was only a few days old :)




And here's a more recent pic of him, with his beautiful eyes open! He's getting so BIG!




(One more, just because I love it so much... he was only a few days old in this photo)




Anyway, that's about it! I'd share my birth story with you all, but I haven't even written it down yet. lol. But it went really well, and I feel so peaceful about the whole experience. It was definitely life-changing and empowering.


I also want to say how much I've appreciated being part of this forum throughout my pregnancy. I don't always chime in very often, but I've received so much encouragement and advice over the last 9 months from this community! Thank you, ladies!!


And congrats to you all on your little bundles of joy! They're amazing, aren't they? :)
