We met our baby son, Noah Lawrence Erlbaum two weeks ago on September 2, 2015. He caught us by surprise and arrived two and a half weeks before his due date when we still thought we had plenty of time to get things ready in our apartment, read books about giving birth, and google articles on how to take care of a baby.
As unprepared as we felt (we hadn't even decided on his name when he was delivered!), I can't imagine life without him. We took these photos after coming home from the hospital with my heart feeling so full and complete - I could hardly believe that one day it was just me and Taylor and next we had started a family! It's been amazing to see Taylor be such an loving dad and supportive husband. I feel so lucky and blessed and am trying to soak up every minute I have with my two favorite guys in the entire world.
Finally trying to get around to posting photos from our babymoon in Oregon we took a couple months ago.
Other than the fact that we ended up visiting during a historic heatwave that had been unmatched since the 1970s while I was already overheated all the time from being 6 months pregnant, it was a really great trip. Portland area seems to have a little bit of everything - amazing food, unrealistically friendly and good looking hipsters walking around everywhere just smiling for no reason or looking like they're about to do something really artsy fartsy, nature, nature and more nature, Powell's books, Nike, and best of all - no sales tax!
