Henri was born at 10:08am, they are 7lbs 7oz, and they are the fucking greatest

Spending some time with my baby next to flowers from mastofriends

not for nothing but this baby has giant fucking hands

My eyes hurt so damn much from crying I feel like the meme seal

I am simply sitting by the window with a beautiful view of the fall colors in Cambridge, with my infant child swaddled on my chest, listening to Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison, and all I need is for someone to walk in and quietly deliver an Large Ice Cofee into my palm

I have gone out to retrieve my colded broom, and the cashier at the cafe is the single most-hungover person I have ever interacted with. Happy day after Halloween
