I'd Like To Introduce...

the newest addition to our family,
Carlo Anthony was born on June 26th.
He made his way into the world a tad early {in my 36th week}
He weighed in at 5 lb. 12 ounces and was 18.5 inches long.

To my surprise, labor and delivery was just fine.
While I was in labor for approximately 11 hours,
the delivery lasted no more then 15 minutes.
To be honest, I expected a rough delivery due to my
really really rough pregnancy.
This little guy wanted out.
Capital O-U-T.
His personality is very much that way.

Rob and I are so in love.
My emotions are through the roof, as I expected them to be.
I look at my son and feel a sense of overwhelming joy
that I can't quite explain.
It's the greatest kind of love that exists.

Needless to say, Rob and I have been preoccupied.
He's quite the handful.  But worth it of course.

This upcoming Wednesday, the hubs and I will celebrate our third year of marriage.

Honey, I love you more each day.
You are the epitome of a perfect husband.
You are even a better daddy.
Thank you for walking along side me during this pregnancy.
I know it wasn't an easy chapter.
We have some challenges along the way,
but there isn't anyone else I'd rather tackle those with.

For my design folks...I'm having decorating withdrawal!
What's postpartum?  I have something much different.
Being stuck in a house and missing blog land. 
That's the problem.

Our kitchen is one step from completion.
The honed carrara came in but I wasn't particularly fond of the color.
I'm currently waiting for a new piece to come in.
Then the kitchen reveal.

See you around, friends!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!! He is beautiful!! I know how in love you must be. Those first 6 weeks are exhausting and exhilarating! Go easy on yourself and take lots of pictures-it's amazing how much you forget when you are sleep-deprived! :)

  2. Ash, your little boy is adorable. I'm so glad that you are all happy and doing well!! Congratulations and good luck with everything. Love and miss you. <3
