hello Tate

Tate Hill Duggin was born on Wednesday night at 11:06. He is a big boy, 9lbs 6oz and 21 inches long, but still seems tiny just like I thought he would. He has big sweet cheeks and we are in love, of course.



We were all set to welcome him on Thursday morning at a scheduled c-section, so imagine our surprise when my water broke Wednesday night while we were getting Marlie ready for bed. I still had a c-section, just with a little more excitement :).



We are snuggling and soaking up every newborn minute. Welcome to the world little Tate!

He is DARLING. Soak it all up, even the middle of the night feedings. It is but a flash of time - next thing you know he'll be stuffing frogs in his pockets! :) Take care... and congrats. Leslie Fox
