Welcome to the world, L!
The new love of my life (aka Lovebug, Little Peanut, Sweetness, Little Pea, Fart Monster, Baby Boy) was born just one week ago (happy one week birthday, Baby Boy!) at exactly 1:01 am. He arrived a full 8 pounds, 9 ounces of pure deliciousness and measured at 20 inches.
We are pretty over the moon and in love over here. I’m just now getting out of the haze of childbirth and pretty much want to spend every free moment snuggling with this sweet baby, so excuse me while I’m more sporadic on social media and responding to blog comments. Luckily I planned ahead and scheduled plenty of posts and some guest posts over the next few months so I can just enjoy every moment with L!
Tell, me, how much baby stuff do you want to see on the blog? Should I post L’s birth story? Tour of the nursery? I have quite a few things I’d love to share but realize that this is a dessert blog so please let me know what you think. In the mean time, follow me on Instagram for baby overload.
Note in the photo above – this boy can get out of a professional swaddle!
All of the baby things!!! Ahem. I mean…I have an equal love for babies AND dessert, so I will happily read whatever you want to share. :)
Haha thanks, Tara! :-)
Holy time flies! Welcome to the world little fart monster! haha, these photos are so precious. Thanks for sharing your happy day with us friend! xx
Haha thanks, Katrina!
Share EVERYTHING. Please. I want to hear it all!!
He is the sweetest. Can’t wait to meet him. I’m going to text you today to make plans!
EEEE HE IS SO CUTE!!!! I’m so soooo happy for you-and yeah I wanna hear EVERYTHINNNGGG!
Welcome to the world L! :)
Congratulations, he’s gorgeous!
I’m all for the baby stuff, but I know not everyone is. Are you familiar with how Deb, of Smitten Kitchen, incorporates links to photos of their son, Jacob, into her posts? Whatever you decide, I’ll still be following and reading.
Thank you so much, Patty! And I do like Deb’s way of doing it. I’ll try to figure out a good balance for all the readers:-)
We are so in love with L! You are a wonderful Mommy!
He’s so precious. Our Liam was also a swaddle squirming master! We finally used the Summer Infant velcro swaddles and those seem to do the trick…most of the time. :D Enjoy that sweet boy!
Yes, we just started using velcro swaddles and same thing… they “mostly” work:-
He is so precious!! Congratulations! And I love reading about babies and dessert ;)
Thank you, Stephanie!
yes to all baby overload! i want to hear it all! L is so precious. So happy for you :)
also…penelope used to break out of her swaddle too! she fought until her arms were free. she still hates anything that covers her arms (like a towel after the bath, being under a blanket, etc…)
Thanks, Rachel! So funny about the babies with their swaddles!
YES…everything…birth story, etc. please!!! xoxo…And huge MAZEL TOV!! He is delicious.
