my dad helped snap these first family photos of me and nicolaus with our new little addition, baby niels. he is six days old here and we are smitten with this chunka love. he's the sweetest little blessing and we couldn't be happier with how well he's doing after a bit of a rough start. also, my parents and my in-laws deserve a shoutout for all their help with mine and nick's transition to parenthood. i don't know what we would have done without them, and baby niels loves having them nearby to snuggle with and to coo over his cuteness :)
