The most stressful part of having Hugo was that most of my family was out of town: my mom was in Hawaii for two weeks, my dad was in Las Vegas and then flew to Oregon, Larry's mom and step-dad were in California, my Aunt who was supposed to be our backup plan was in Saint George running a marathon. Luckily, Marissa was able to watch my kids for a morning and our sweet friends the Heywoods watched them for the rest of the weekend. And our lucky streak continued because my sister Candice ended up being in town for a video shoot when Hugo was about a week old and she had just enough time to squeeze in a photo shoot for Hugo and she let me cry on her shoulder a bit too because I am an emotional mess for two weeks after having a baby. I mean, who wouldn't get emotional looking at this sweet little guy?
The night before the photo shoot, I realized I didn't have any cute things to dress Hugo in that actually fit him so I cut up a maternity shirt and made him this little hat and leggings that I painted constellations on.
