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.


My son is amazing. Seriously. If I didn't know he'd had surgery this morning I'd have no clue. I love that God made our little one's so resilient! The surgery went perfectly and Javi has 4 brand new pearly whites to show off with that infectious smile of his.

Upon getting him checked in they gave him a liquid sedative ("kiddie cocktail") to calm him a bit, and it did the trick. Within minutes he was bit drunk with love and giggles. Off course the hardest part was seeing him off... and waiting.The doctor was out to see us in about an hour with the great news and just a few minutes later we were back with our boy. He had a tough time coming out of the anesthesia and nurse "Snarky" didn't help much. He was pretty confused coming to and they had put the IV in his foot wrapped with a bandage- did I mention he can't stand having things on his feet? Needless to say, it was a bit tough explaining in his haze that it was important he not rip the needle from his foot. Other than that it was smooth sailing. He was happy nurse after having been nonny-free for nearly 7 hours. And for the first time in months it didn't hurt! (Xav's old teeth were pretty sharp and jagged so if he go the least bit lazy with his latch I was in some pain- but no more!)

Within an hour X was waving and flirting with everyone that passed, telling us all about Oliver, tractors and his dear baby. He's a little sleepy and snuggly, just a bit out of sorts but he wants to play and go see the geese as if it were any other day. So I'm off to snuggle and tend to my babe who is reminding me at the moment how much I appreciate those little things.

Thank you Lord!
