Visits, meals, and support: the perfect recipe for a new baby

In addition to the joy of William and a visit from an old friend, we have had a lot of good things pouring in over the last seven weeks. It has been amazing to have so much support from our friends, family, co-workers, golf buddies, neighbors… the list goes on.

We’ve had newborn diapers delivered to our doorstep; loads of laundry done in a matter of hours; blueberry pancakes made from scratch; generous gifts sent our way; messages of support from our east coasters; and so much more.

Everyone told us to accept help when we had a baby. We did it. And we’re loving it.

My friend Leila will send texts and videos to William often (it’s the best). This is one of my favorites – she started to cry when I sent her a photo of W taking a bath for the first time. So sweet!


W got to meet some of his future playmates…



William loved being held during his first week.


I went into labor at John and Janaki’s BBQ, so it was extra fun to catch up with them. And Janaki is due with a baby boy (William #2!) in just a few weeks.
