Some exciting news...

Well, he's finally here. Yes, you heard right! IT'S A BOY!
Hayden Patrick Rice entered this world at 6:16 am, on one of the most special days, Mother's Day. He weighed 6lbs 12oz and measured 19 inches long.
It was such a beautiful birth and my mom was a CHAMP. She pushed for 10 short minutes, and then he was here. And we were all in love.



We love you so very much Hayden, you make our family complete.
Love, Kenzie
