Henry Thomas Hughes

August 28, 2009

We are so happy to welcome our son, Henry Thomas Hughes, into the world. He was born August 21 at 3:40pm, weighing 9 lbs. 4 oz., measuring 21 inches.

Rama and I are over the moon, reveling in the quiet- & laughter-filled moments spent with our son, marveling at the miracle & preciousness of life, and really, just falling head over heels in love with this little boy wonder.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
