Our Little Will

by



William Pratt Sandifer arrived nearly two weeks early, at 1:52p on Saturday, January 8th. He weighed in at 8 lbs 2oz, and 20 3/4″ long. We’re totally in love!

William is after my cool uncle and late grandfather, and Pratt is my stepfather Steve's middle name and his mother’s maiden name. I’ve loved being named after my great grandmother Emilie and couldn’t think of two people more deserving of having a namesake as they don’t have any biological children of their own but mean the world to me. And besides, doesn’t Will Sandifer sound like the name of someone you’d want to be friends with? We think so!

The labor and delivery was quick (just 8 hours all together) and definitely the most difficult thing I've ever done (too quick for any pain meds! Woah!), but clearly worth the effort. I can't stop staring at our little luv bug! I'll post more pictures soon, but wanted to share our news now that we're back home and settling into life as a little family.

In the meantime, the hospital photographer and friend Sarah Moore captured some sweet moments of us on our first day.

Check out the amazing mohawk on our little Elvis (rightly so, being born on the King's birthday and all).

Clients, if you need anything at all, studio manager Nicole continues to work her regular hours at the office, Monday- Thursday 9a-5p. And if you want to come over for some baby snuggles, we can arrange that as well. We'd love to see you!

  12. Emilie, you are both so beautiful! Motherhood looks good on you. :) I love his dark, fluffy hair and squishable cheeks! I'm thinking about you all the time, and hoping you're enjoying these early days as much as I am. Lots of hugs to all of you.

  13. Congratulations, Emilie! I'm so happy for you! Sending you best wishes for easy new beginnings as you and J get to know your sweet babe, a good night's sleep, and a loving dog chin on your knee as you rock that boy in your arms. Look at all that HAIR! (And dude-are you wearing eye shadow?!) Gorgeous.
