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.

    Oh you have some goodies here (and I think I am a comment hog on your blog, a comment hog blog I am- as I am always first to say something!) ANYWAY-- dogs love diapers- must be in their nature. Why DO men have nipples? And P.S. I was obsessed with Angela on My So Called Life and had the red hair and all (and why am I admitting this??) top
