RIP Magsafe

The definitive Apple feature is now gone.

Jesse Davis Flanders

Jesse Davis Flanders

After only 8 hours of labor, Meghan gave birth to our first child on July 26th at noon. He measured 21" tall, weighed 8lbs 5oz and instantly melted our hearts. It's difficult to explain how incredible the experience was, Meghan was amazing throughout and impressed everyone.

Uncle Colin

The last 9 months have flown by and now he's here. When we were building the nursery this all seemed so far away. The days leading up to his birth, it was so hard to imagine what it would be like. It's weird to say that we have a son now.

We welcome Jesse into our young family as both of our parents' first grandchild and the first great grandchild in Meghan's extended family. We chose a pair of family names, Jesse from the Flanders - from both my great uncle and great grandfather - and Davis from Meghan's family - most recently as her brother Con's middle name.

The first week flew by with less sleep than we need, more worrying than we should, and so much help and love from everyone. The grandparents are all glowing and already bragging on him, and my brother, Uncle Colin, is possibly the most excited of us all!

Now that he's here, we get to work, learn, make mistakes and have fun raising our little boy.

Getting our first christmas tree

Meghan, Mac and I went with the family on our traditional Christmas Tree hunt. This year it was pretty cold out and I'm not sure Mac got to ride in the coat for his benefit or to keep Meghan warm.

Either way, we got a beautiful tree for our first real Christmas as a married, home owning family.

From my archive, Mac Flanders (3 months old), hanging on the porch. I need to get some newer photos of this little guy now that he's grown up so much already.

After months of discussion, Meghan and I brought home a litte dude to share the house with tonight. Apparently we can't call him "Toby", so watch this space for his official name 😄
