happy easter!


had to stop in on a sunday to share some photos of these adorable japanese vintage blue velvet bunny slippers my mom found for adam. they couldn’t be more perfect for the occasion!




adam: week 8

this is one of my favorite shots of adam, captured on a rare rainy day in los angeles  (which, of course, meant we took the opportunity to dress him up in his teeny tiny rain slicker). around 7-8 weeks is when he became much more expressive, with lots of social smiling and other silly faces. i just couldn’t get over that little wrinkled nose!

also, if you aren’t already following me on instagram, i post a ton of photos of adam that i don’t share anywhere else. i try to post his outfits once or twice a week. here’s a better look at this outfit, complete with baby old skool vans!



adam: week 7

from a visit with his great-grandparents. now that we live in los angeles, i’m only an hour away from my family for the first time in thirteen years. we’re pretty tight knit, so it has always been hard for me to be away. and it’s a huge part of why i moved back to southern california when i found out i was expecting. i’m so happy that we can just drive out whenever we feel like it and hang around with family for a day or two. and they’re all so excited about adam, it usually feels like a big party when we go over, and everyone takes turns passing him around. he’s one lucky little dude!



adam: week 6

i snapped these photos on valentine’s day, so i’m kinda fudging the numbers just a tad. this would have been the first day of his sixth week, but i just couldn’t resist showing him in his darling little gold angel wing footie that we received as a gift from marie-chantal. i remember that day, i kept trying so hard to get him to pose for me, but he just wasn’t having it. i had to wait until my little cupid was asleep on the job before i could finally get a photo.



adam: week 5

watching adam talk to his giraffe melted my heart into a big old sappy puddle. so glad i wasn’t too bleary-eyed to document this moment.

and if you’re curious, the onesie is by j.crew, the socks are mini boden, and the giraffe is by cloud-b and it makes white noise, which is so helpful when you have a newborn!



adam: week 4

my sleeping babe. for several weeks, i kinda forgot to photograph him while he was awake! it just seemed like when he was sleeping was the only time i wasn’t fretting over him and could take a moment to just admire his squishy little face.



adam: week 3

a couple of photos from adam’s third week of life, wearing silly little pajamas. looking at him now, it’s hard to believe he was ever this small and curled up. he looks like a little glow worm in that hat!



adam: week 2


these photos were snapped on my 31st birthday when adam was ten days old. he’s wearing his little party hat! to celebrate, we had family over and we ate guisados tacos (best ever) and drank mimosas. well, i only had a sip of champagne since i was still loaded on pain medication from the c-section. after everyone left, i realized that i still hadn’t gotten a single photo of us together! i guess there are some shots of me on the operating table with him, but they’re not very glamorous.

i have a million more gems that i snapped during his second week of life, but i still haven’t found the time to edit them! in addition to sharing a few photos on my blog, i’m really hoping i can go through and select a few photos each week so i can actually get them printed. in this digital age, i am so worried that my computer will crash or i’ll somehow lose all of the photos if i don’t take the time to sort through and get some printed. same goes for all of the silly instagram outfit photos i’ve been taking. i need to look into a printing service for both so that adam will be able to look back and see these photos when he gets older!




adam: week 1

i can’t believe it’s been over six weeks since adam was born! i know he’s been absent on the blog, but if you follow me on instagram, then you’ve seen me posting his little baby outfits. i now understand why new parents plaster millions of baby pictures all over social media. i am completely obsessed with this little being, and can’t resist photographing his every move. when he was born and i started snapping pictures, i decided i would try to take a photo of him at least once a week. and looking back, i’m already glad that i did. i can’t believe how much he’s grown in such a short amount of time! in the next week or two, he will have already outgrown his tiniest clothes! i know it’s such a small thing, but it’s kind of heartbreaking to imagine folding up some of those little onesies knowing that he will never be that small again…

anyway, enough of the sappy stuff! i’ve been hoarding all of these photos to myself, and then i realized it would be fun to share them here. i’m six weeks behind, so i’ll be playing catch up for a bit, but hopefully you’ll enjoy getting a little glimpse into my world. these are a few photos from his first week of life, in which he looks an awful lot like a grumpy little gnome!



and baby makes three

couldn’t resist sharing this adorable illustration that bianca made for our new little family. it’s so good i think i’m gonna have to get it printed and use it as my baby announcement! this woman is super talented and it’s gonna be fun to watch all of the places she goes. thank you so much, bianca!!!
