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.

    I love this photo. Amazing what they are able to do now to save such tiny babies.

    Hunter spent 8 days in the NICU on a respirator and I will not even try to understand what you went thru, but I saw those 2 and 3 pound babies. It broke my heart.

    But look at Xavier now! top
