Welcome, Kainoa James!

Two of our closest college friends, Jamie and Eric, welcomed a baby boy last night at 9:14pm! Kainoa James was born 8 pounds, 7 ounces and 19 3/4 inches long. Kainoa is Hawaiian, meaning "The Name," capturing the Polynesian influence in Eric's family heritage; James honors Jamie's side of the family. We were so excited to receive pictures of the little guy yesterday (but we already knew Kainoa would be adorable -- his mom and dad are one good-looking couple). Eric sent a text message from the hospital saying that Kainoa has "dark hair and eyes like daddy!" 

Jamie was induced yesterday morning, a week past her December 31 due date. It was so fun talking to her the night before, knowing that the next time we spoke, she would be a mother! They will be wonderful parents.

We love you, Jamie and Eric! Congratulations!
