Introducing...

As you might have guessed, for the past three weeks, Moss and Co.'s world has had a new center. And it's mighty sweet....

He is named after Rich's grandfather, Safford (pictured here), but in our house he mostly goes by Baby Saf. I think amidst the chaos of having my girls so close in age I forgot how magical the first weeks of babyhood are. Of course it has had it's own chaotic moments, and the recovery this time around has been slow and tough, but there have been so many more moments of just...awe.  I'm grateful for him, and for his perfect timing. AND for his multiple fat kissable chins...
Of which there are approximately 100. 

He is my first baby to love his room right off the bat, which is awesome for so many reasons, the best at this point being because it has translated into happy sleep for his parents. 

The actual room is tiny--under 8x8--but it's become one of everybody's favorite places to gather, and on any given hour it can be found filled with helpful sisters, a huge dog, and anyone else who happens to be visiting. It's full of meaningful things that have been given to us by our fathers and grandfathers, along with a heavy dose of ikea and diy projects. And a very beautiful blanket (pictured on the chair above), fortuitously won in a giveaway from the lovely Carol of The Design Pages right before Saf's arrival.  Full tour to follow once I finish up a few things....if I can manage to tear myself away from this snuggly fatness...

  8. Oh that little chin(s). It needs a good nibble. Safford is a good name. And he is scrumptious.

    Now, not to take away from the goodness that is Safford here, have you seen this?
