Hi, friends! I took a couple days off from blogging and have been soaking up every moment with this cutie pie.

Gaw, I love being a mom. Seriously, it's just the best. Baby Caroline is such a joy and I can't wait to get up every morning and see what awaits us. Stephen and I are learning so much, albeit not always gracefully ; )

Our days consist of a lot of nursing, napping (her), laundry (me), the occasional appointment, tummy time on our activity mat and a sprinkling of bad daytime TV. We are also frequent patrons of the Starbucks drive-thru, (teaching this girl the joys of coffee early.) Mostly, we just hang out and get to know each other. It's going to be so hard to go back to work in January!

As far as my C-section recovery, it's been fairly uneventful, which is terrific. I'm still a bit sore following days when I've overdone it, but for the most part, I feel really good. I didn't have to take the pain meds for longer than a week after the surgery, and the incision is healing wonderfully.

I've got a few more "baby's first" posts and also some non-bambina themed posts coming up, including my very first outfit pics since Caroline's birth - three cheers for non-maternity clothes! I hope to get back to a more regular blogging schedule, but it's tough with a newborn, so we'll see if that happens or not : )

Talk to you dolls tomorrow!


  1. She is beautiful, SOAK IN EVERY MOMENT!!!! :)


  2. Don't even think of January right now - it will steal some of your joy! Just focus on every precious second you have right now, as they fly by all too fast!:)

  3. She is so perfect. So happy for you!

  4. Another great thing about Canada we get a one year paid maternity leave. I can't even imagine leaving a newborn so early :(

  5. Leslie, Caroline is GORGEOUS! I love the pics of your happy time!!
