Hayes Ray

Welcome our fourth beautiful boy.
Hayes Ray Kraus. 

Born May 12th, at 1:28 pm
7lbs 11oz
20' long 

Smothered with song and kisses since the day we brought him home. Wide eyed, alert, and sweet as can be these past two weeks. His careful blue eyes waking to the new rythems of this house, growing familiar with his endlessly admiring brothers and the day to day soundtrack that defines a full and moving household.

So far, we have spent most of our days tucked away in my room. He and I. Watching the trees sway when the wind picks up. Reading, napping, nursing, fawning.

He is prefect, in every way.
And we are so in love.

Thank you so much for all your love and support along the way.

    And gosh, 4 boys ;) Almost a mamas dream. I would have loved having a boy. But that's for another lifetime.

    Lots of love to you both. And enjoy that bedroom for a little longer.
    Real life can wait just a little.
