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.

Happy Birthday Xavier

I can't believe it's here. Officially at 11:51pm my sweet Xavier will be one. While the days have crept, the year has flown by. I had planned to write a long post, and maybe I still will, but right now there is a little boy playing by my toes- telling me stories and giggling away. And so I'm off to the floor to embrace this second before it too flies by.

I am the proudest mama. Grateful this precious soul has been loaned to us, entrusted to my care. Blessed to see how far we've come. Hopeful for the days ahead. Blissfully happy in every moment. Happy Birthday Chunk le Funk.
