Congratulation - he is adorable! He will continue to be the most amazing thing to ever have happened to you (with the possible exception of a few teen years). How bizarre that I felt such a thrill when I opened your blog this morning since I don't know you! Hugo - you go, great name. All the best to your new family!

Awesome name, awesome baby, awesome new parents! Congratulations!

Two things: when I saw the post on Instagram I excitedly announced out loud, "Oh, yay! She had her baby!" and then had to rather embarrassingly explain that, um, yeah, she's a writer whose blog I follow...

And based on your previous post I'm adding "half-googling" and "penis bannister" to my lexicon.
