It's a boy!

It is with the greatest joy of our lives that we introduce you to Ivar Nicholas Groves. This little guy came into the world on Monday afternoon, November 1st at 1:57 and has multiplied our capacity for love in exponential ways. Our hearts are full and so content. And he is complete peace and joy and awe and wonder all wrapped up in 8 pounds and 5 ounces of beautiful baby.

Oh, how I was hoping you had baby on the November 1. As an All Saint's baby myself, I know it's a great birthday. So happy birthday Ivar! Welcome to the world, may you find it strange and odd and completely wonderful.
