My last trip to Colorado marked the first time I've been there without setting foot in the mountains, but I promise I had good reason: Theo! My sweet nephew made a dramatic entrance into the world in March, and I was lucky enough to take his newborn portraits and design his birth announcement. And snuggle the heck out of him.
Also a first: we had a string of nine girls on my side of the family and then...Theo! Now we're trying to figure out what to do with a tiny boy in our midst. He's proven to be a pretty awesome addition to the family so far.
It feels funny to post these photos more than four months later since he's now smiling, rolling over and learning new tricks. But at least I can report after recently spending a week with him, and since inquiring minds keep wanting to know, that his hair now appears to be my sister's gorgeous shade of auburn.
