Hey everyone! Check out this super cute little baby I had three months ago! His name is Dean Robert Edgemont. He came late, 41 weeks and 2 days to be exact, in a furry (got to the hospital at 9cms) and then a wait (then stuck there for the next eight hours) followed by what felt like a million pushes. He is the best addition to our family, so much so, I don’t remember what I did with all my free time before he was here. I guess we went to a lot of movies and watching the entirety of Game of Thrones. Now it takes us two hours to get through an episode of New Girl because I need to pause it to stare at his cute face every two seconds. No, seriously, I just don’t want to miss any of Schmidt’s jokes while trying to calm down Dean’s fussiness.
My sweet friends, Divine Light Photography, captured these moments when Dean was ten days old. He seems huge now compared to what he was. Like a giant snuggly giant with an appetite for milk to match.
I started working again when he was five weeks old. I had the most amazing wedding to produce at The Wythe hotel for the most amazing couple. I was itching to get back in the studio by then anyways. Stay-at-home mom is not in my DNA. Those few hours I got to steal making floral arrangements and finalizing details left me feeling like a normal person again. The newborn haze, while figuring each other out, how to change diapers without getting peed on (silly boys), and manufacturing enough milk to feed a growing baby, sure is delightful. Although, sitting at my desk and banging out a few emails brought a new appreciation and passion for this business. Now, as a mama, my business direction and purpose are much more focused. The hustle has gotten stronger with this tiny babe to provide for.
Hot dad alert. Random: have you seen the instagram @dilfs_of_disneyland? It’s basically all photos of super hot dads taking care of their tired kids in the most stressful, yet fun filled, vacation location on the planet.
THIS. Nourishing my little baby Dean. He is always called Baby Dean. Not just Dean. Always BABY DEAN. He will be my little guy forever. Especially when he’s 15 and I’ll still kissing him on the lips outside of football practice in front of all his friends.
