Welcome to the World, Little One!

Monday, June 27, 2016

On June 11th at 5:55am, Jim and I welcomed our adorable and healthy little girl into the world! We'd like to introduce you to Rowen Ocean Ladio, born 6/11/16 at 5:55am at 7lbs 6 oz. and 19.75 inches.



Rowen was born at just 36 1/2 weeks, so she took us by a bit of surprise! We've been in such a beautiful whirlwind of craziness these last two weeks, soaking in as much time together as a new family as possible, learning and loving and snuggling and staring...and NOT sleeping ;). 

She has papa's fingers and toes, mommy's mouth, and the most kissable little neck you've ever seen. She loves eating (constantly), naps on chests and bobbling around in her baby carriage; she hates diaper changes and baths.

I'm in awe of this transition we've gone through, and of the love I already have for this little being! I'm in awe of Jimmy who has been taking care of my every need, has changed almost every diaper, and is already showing to be the best papa ever for baby Rowen. We're also in awe of our community who has so generously wrapped their arms around us, delivering dinners, helping with laundry, and generally showering us with love and support. 

Can't wait to share more in the coming days! Find me on instagram (@minimallie) in the meantime for updates - it's a bit more breastfeeding-friendly than the 'log ;).
