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.

Our First Vacation: Austin, TX

I won't say that it's not good to be home but our vacation was wonderful! Xavier was a dream and our 5 days in Austin flew by. We moved back to the Chicago area almost two years ago from Austin where I worked as a nanny. The purpose of our trip was to catch up with our dear friends I used to work for, their little ones I love and revisit the city we miss more than we ever thought we would. Oh yeah, and to show off our little one.

I thought I'd take a zillion pictures as I usually do on vacations but I hadn't thought about the fact that I'd be toting around a baby and a diaper bag everywhere we went. So it was pretty much up to David to do the shooting. Between forgetting the camera or leaving it on purpose (so it wouldn't be left in the 100+ heat) we just didn't take as many shots as usual. I had planned to do a day by day, but decided to just show you our photos instead...
