Hi Everyone! I’m thrilled to share that our baby boy, Ayan Ellison Shah, was born on Tuesday, August 1st at 5:45am. He weighed in at 6lbs 11oz, is 20.5 inches long, and has a head full of black hair, just like his sister when she was born! 🙂 Ayan’s birth was dramatically different from Layla’s […]

One Week in Chile (Santiago, Colchagua, Valparaíso)
It’s no secret that the husband is a huge fan of Star Wars. When Layla was born, the husband was so excited to share his love of Star Wars with her that he talked to her about it all the time. And now, I can honestly say that Layla has become a Star Wars fan in […]
