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 New Year

What a year! We are still recuperating from the holiday's and excited to see what the new year brings. Stolen from Steph at Adventures in Babywearing and Mama C-ta, here's my...

Year in Review
(compiled by taking the first sentence, of the first post, of each month)

January - Happy New Year! We stayed up late with our newborn son- sure he’s in the hospital, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share a sparkling cider with the nurses.

February - Little X was just weighed in; he’s 6 pounds and 8 ounces.

March - So I have officially been a mom for 93 days now and they have been the most purposeful, satisfying, joyous days of my life.

April - Somebody woke up this weekend and decided to be a big boy, the changes 24 hours can bring sometimes are amazing.

May - I'm going through a strange season in my life.

June - Oh it has been a long time!

July - We've had a busy week- Xavier's
baptism and picnic celebration, my brother came to visit... and got engaged to the most wonderful girl!

August - Last night Xavier and I got out of the house with our best buddies Steph and Grayson to go to our monthly CHOICES meeting.

September - I read somewhere that adults laugh less than 20 times a day. Children- more than 300.

October - You know how when you start taking a new vitamin your, uh-hem, pee can look a little fluorescent?

November -
November is National Prematurity Awareness month, and it only feels natural to devote the bulk of this month's blogging to that cause.

December -
This baby of mine is growing up way too fast.

I wish you all a Happy New Year!

    I enjoyed going back and reading a lot of your old stuff. I had to laugh at your first experience nursing X. Hunter was a champ too. I think because he already knew my milk through the feeding tube, he smelled it and dove right in!! top
