the kind of joy he would bring into our lives.

we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect gift.

filled with  joyful times making memories

with your loved ones!

2 Dec

there’s always so much to be thankful for,

but i’m going to keep this simple.

…..family…..

those that are blood

and those that are not,

those who are near or far,

that we see everyday or once a year.

for the one that we have started

 that has given me the gift of becoming a mother.

….family…..

i hope that you all enjoyed a day of thanks

with the ones you love

and with whom you call family.

1st halloween…..

6 Nov

pumpkin baby

this post is better late than never.

halloween creeped up on me faster than i was ready for it.

i  have sort of lost track of the days since baby matteo got here.

he couldn’t have come at a more perfect time though

because we do get to celebrate all the best “first” holidays!

^^^^^

i kind of slacked when it came to the costume part,

and painting pumpkins with a newborn

didn’t happen quite how i planned.

regardless, we had an awesome time

with family and friends and

it seems that we may have started a tradition over here,

pumpkin decorating at our house!

this was our second year hosting.

yay!!! i love new traditions.

^^^^^

so even though we didn’t have costumes and

our pumpkins didn’t get finished,

i’d say our first halloween with matteo was still a success!

hope you all had a safe and spook-tacular halloween!

(i know, that was really corny, lol!)

family of pumpkins

^^^ a pumpkin for each of us^^^

did you know? matteo edition…..

19 Oct

matteo

our little man is 7 weeks old now!

it’s amazing how something so little

can change your life so drastically. (for the better!)

the husby and i are still figuring  out

this baby, like who does what and when and how,

but either way,

he has got us wrapped around his finger.

he smiles and doesn’t even know how or why yet

and it just melts us.

^^^^^

the no sleep thing is  for real,

like six hours sounds good to me now

and some days my hair is in a knot on the top of my head

and i realize that i haven’t changed out of my pj’s,

but does it matter?

not when that baby boy looks at me like

i’m the only thing in the world that matters.

^^^^^

he’s got me dancing around the house,

making crazy faces,

and singing lullaby’s, or any song for that matter,

just to keep him entertained!

i’ll look like a fool for him, and

i wouldn’t change it for the world.

you sure have stollen our hearts baby matteo!

^^^^^

did you know……?

  1. he loves a warm bath and  gets mad when they end
  2. he favors his left hand
  3. there’s a possibility of blue eyes
  4. he has hair on his ears like a little wolf
  5. he has mamma’s hands and papa’s toes
  6. he’s happiest when there is music playing
  7. car rides make him sleepy
  8. he has made our lives complete

play time

here and there…..

and we’ve learned and grown

as we continue to find out new things about each other.

i can’t imagine my life without him

and i feel so lucky to call him my husband.

30 Sep

i can’t believe that baby matteo is one month old today.

on one hand this has been the most amazing month of my life,

and on the other hand i’m sad that time is just flying by.

matteo is growing and changing every day

and we are just so in love.

life before him just doesn’t seem like it even existed.

^^^^^^^

as i’m sure you all can imagine

this blog is about to become a whole lot more about baby,

but we just can’t help ourselves.

^^^^^^^

can’t get enough of this cuteness!!!!
