Isla Addison

Where has the time gone?  It has been nearly 3 months since my last blog post, and over 5 weeks since I gave birth to my baby girl, Isla Addison {pronounced eye-la}.

As overwhelming + difficult as this newborn phase can be at times, I am absolutely relishing in my role as a mother.  From the moment that the doctors held Isla up for me to see, I felt this immense rush of emotions; pure love, joy, and the feeling that I had somehow known her my entire life.  I had always wondered if there was truth to what everyone said; that your natural nurturing instincts kick in after you have a baby, and it's true that they really do.

Thank you all for the sweet comments & support on instagram.  It really makes me feel so grateful that I've been able to connect with so many amazing women through my blog and social media.  I do plan on eventually returning to blogging more regularly on this space, and may even post a couple recipes in the coming weeks/months, but for now I am still taking so much pleasure in devoting every single ounce of myself to my sweet baby girl.  I can't imagine our quiet days spent any other way.

For now I will leave you with these photos that were taken when she was around 10 days old.  Our photographer, Katie Lopez, did an amazing job of capturing this newborn stage so beautifully.










  

Stay well, friends. xx
