baby michael is here!

You may have noticed some silence on the blog over the past few days (okay, weeks … it’s been a crazy month as I finished up some weddings/classes before the new year!).

But now I have an excellent excuse … the most handsome baby boy in the whole world was born this week. Meet my nephew, Michael Joseph!

He’s amazing and perfect in every way. I’m so thankful that his arrival coincided with our visit home for Christmas. This, of course, is the first of many signs of how completely brilliant and wonderful he is.

You can expect many, many more pictures of him in months to come. What can I say, he’s my first nephew and I’m one proud aunt!

PS – Note: this photo was not taken by me, but my incredibly talented dad (who is an amazing photographer!). He also happens to be Michael’s namesake. =)
