Last month, we met the strongest woman we will ever know, our birth mother. And on Saturday at 12:39pm, our lives changed forever.
Today, I’m so proud to introduce you to our son, Arlo Mitchell Mindell. Arlo, inspired by the sweet little dinosaur from The Good Dinosaur. As you know, Pixar has been a big part of our relationship and we love that Arlo the dinosaur also went on an incredible journey to find his family. And Mitchell after Jeff’s late grandfather who meant the world to him.
We got to be there to see his very first moments of life and on Monday we got to take him home. I hope to share more about our journey to find our baby boy later but right now, we’re spending our days snuggling and loving on Arlo, and completely in awe of the most selfless act of love and strength we just witnessed. We honestly can’t believe how truly lucky we are. It feels like a dream.
We spent the last month preparing lots of amazing content for you guys so not much will change around these parts while I take my version of maternity leave! We’ll resume Work It outfit posts once I’m back in the office regularly.
Thank you again for all of your encouragement as we’ve walked this journey to parenthood. It has meant the world to us.
