On rather short notice, this past Thursday I headed to Portland and Eugene, Oregon for a very quick work trip.  When I landed in Portland I had the afternoon free, so I headed over to visit my friend Kelly Rae and her family, and meet her very sweet brand new baby boy, True.

(I tell you what, there's nothing quite like being near a newborn.  It's like a tonic.)

Welcome to the world, beautiful True. 

And happy, happy birthday.
