He’s Finally Here!!

Family > Parenting and Motherhood > He’s Finally Here!!

I’m so pleased to let you know that our baby made it safely into the world last week! We named him Graham Joel Griffiths. Graham is my grandmother’s maiden name and Joel is my papa. I just know he’ll fit his name well. It actually took us two days after his birth to firm up a name, but now that it’s said and done I’m really happy with it.

Here he is at just a few hours old. I plan on sharing the birth story when I catch up on sleep (so in 5 or 6 years…).

We spend an awful lot of time like this.

If you need me this month I’ll look a lot like this.


I plan on posting about once a week and email response will be slow, but don’t worry, I’m still around. If you need more of a baby fix, he’s on Instagram a lot 🙂 Thank you so much for all your kind works and encouragement. I’m so glad to have him here and to not be pregnant!
