Ta-da! Our sweet boy is here!


After traveling to 20 states in utero, our little Henry Jones Cotner-Bradford decided to see the light of day on February 28, 2011. He weighs 9 pounds, 4 ounces and is 23" long. We feel ecstatic and exhausted and exhilarated all at once. I will update you on all the details of my 45 hours of labor as soon as we're back on our feet…

Sending smooches and other love to you!
