Welcome to the World Patrick

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.


My husband Mark and I were welcomed with an early Christmas present.  Patrick was born healthy and strong at 6 lbs 9 oz.  He is seriously the best baby.  He is so calm, makes the funniest faces, and is nursing like a champ.  I just melt every single time I look at him, even for those 2 am feedings. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me during my radio silence.  Finally had a second to come up for air.  I can’t wait to share my birth story of how this little man came into the world.  For now, I am on the mend and taking in every second of these newborn snuggles.


“Labor is the only blind date where you know you will meet the love of your life”.




It makes me cry every time and is the most accurate statement.  I am in love with my new baby boy.  I can’t wait to share this next journey with you!
