I saw this earlier today and just cried and cried. I can see why you chose her as his Godmother.

Can't wait to hear more when you guys get home. I know you can't wait.

So touching. Boho baby, Cedar is lucky with a Godmother as Jen. She seems a beautiful and tender lady to me.

I agree with Kenzie what she writes about K.

Thanks for your time to share these beautiful things with us, I can imagine that you would like to spent all your time with boho baby & boho boy.

Infinite thank you's for sharing this with us all. The love that your family (boho and extended) is like yeast... it rises and it spreads where ever it finds heat... So I can thank you from the other side of the country for giving my heart a feast of bread from the love that you share.

Blessings and prayers from the 'Holy City'.
