Before I became a parent, I was a judger. I remember one instance in particular, in an airport, when I saw a mom holding her son by a leash, A LEASH.

What’s In a Name?

IMG_7040Welles, Wellesley (her actual full name), Wellie, Welsie, we have run the gamut of nicknames already for this baby. I think we all have a favorite: I call her Welles, Levy calls her Wellie, Jack likes the full formal name Wellesley, and Talley just calls her “Baby”. Finn and Sean are partial to Wellsie.
