Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.


Tonight I have officially been branded Xavier's mama. We spent our afternoon running errands and by time we got home and finished dinner our little man was a bit over tired. In the middle of a laugh-fest, meltdown ensued and as we were headed up the stairs to catch some zzz's plain as day, mid cry was "Maaamaaa!". (David heard it to, so I know I'm not projecting) Was it intentional? Couldn't tell ya. Will he say it again? Don't care. He called me mama and that moment is forever mine!

    That's the BEST! I hope he says it again so you know for sure! Gray still isn't there yet- still stuck on the d's... so of course "dada" comes out often! : ( top

    Just found your blog too! My baby (just a couple days older than yours) says mama sometimes when she cries too! It doesn't matter if it is intentional or not, right? It's just magic! top
