Hello hello! I’m doing my best to unplug and savor these slow days at home with our newest little one, but I miss you guys and this space and just wanted to say hi!

Tucker is three weeks old today and I feel so much better than I did a couple short weeks ago.

(This post on new motherhood and postpartum recovery still rings true three years later!). He is an absolute love and I am soaking up every second of this short-lived newborn phase with him (I know not everyone loves this age but it is one of my favorites!). I know there will come a time where I’m antsy to get into more of a routine, but this is my first postpartum period where I haven’t put pressure on myself to get back to daily blog posts the following week and I have to say it’s been really nice to focus exclusively on our little family unit for a while.

It’s been a big month for Teddy between welcoming a new baby brother, going back to school, starting soccer and tennis (!), and turning three next week (!!!).

Peter is in gymnastics classes a few mornings a week and generally too obsessed with books and trucks (ideally books with trucks!) to take much notice of his new sibling. 🙂

This time with each of them has been such a gift.

And even though the days can feel long and our nights are the opposite of restful, I feel so lucky to be living this chapter right now and I’m sincerely grateful to have a community that’s understanding of me taking me this break and still checking in on our little crew from time to time. I have so many more posts I want to write so I’m hoping to be back to more frequent posting next week — thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here and talk more soon! 

P.S. Here’s an index of all my past posts on pregnancy, motherhood, babies, and toddlers!
