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.

David, Will You Marry Me? (again?!)

I know it of course, but sometimes my dear groom makes sure I'm aware that he is the best husband ever. We've had a tough go of it lately with all that Xavier is going through- we are the best of friends, buddies, partners- the whole bit, but we're tired, exhausted, on edge and occasionally at each other throats.

Today he ambles up the stairs after work with pride in his eyes- "Did you see it? Did you see it?!" And hands me not one, not two but three copies of me and Steph's article. "You guys are GORGEOUS!", he says. (Woo- I'll take that any day!)

And if that wasn't enough, he adds - "Hey, why is the house clean?"

I love that man.
