Welcome to the world, Tucker Flaim!

I am thrilled beyond belief to announce the birth of our son on August 20! Seven pounds, 14 ounces, 21 inches long, with pouty lips and lots of hair. His name is Thomas but we’re calling him Tucker.


We’re home from the hospital and getting to know each other at home. He is an escape artist and hates to have his arms swaddled, so we’re working on keeping him asleep! I’ll try to get back here in the relatively near future but I have a feeling I won’t be cooking much for a few weeks…


Thanks for all the well-wishes this weekend and throughout the pregnancy, all.

  3. He’s so darling, congratulations. I just wanted to pass along our lifesaver, http://www.miracleblanket.com/index.htm. It’s seriously a straightjacket and seems so mean, but it did the trick and our Georgia loved it until she was six months. Good luck, he really is so sweet. -Kate Getzschman
