Let me introduce…

My little man, Elliott!!  Born May 21st, 2012.

{Elliott, 1 day old}

As I mentioned in my baby shower post, we opted to not find out if we were having a boy or a girl.  As it turns out, we got a son!  While we honestly did not know the sex, we both had a “feeling” from the beginning it was a boy.  I really wanted that delivery room surprise moment, where Nathan told me “It’s a ___!” but… as it turned out, I actually saw before he did, and immediately said to him “It’s a boy!” LOL!  I told him later, I wasn’t so much telling him, but I was more so confirming with him.  It’s just one of those things that happens in the heat of the moment I guess!


Elliott surprised us in more ways than one, because he came 8 days early!  And I swore up and down from the beginning I thought I’d end up with a June baby, seeing as I was due May 29th.  You know how they say a sign of labor is nesting, where you get this surge of energy to clean?  Yeah, that didn’t happen with me.  But I got a surge of energy to cook & bake!  I made 2 batches of cookie dough, strawberry scones, homemade pizza, and more between Friday when I got off work and Sunday night.  I guess that’s my form of nesting!

I don’t know how frequent my posts will be, as I’m not spending time in the kitchen myself these days.  Taking care of Elliott is taking up most of my time, but I actually have a handful of things I’ve made & photographed stockpiled, so maybe I’ll find time to at least share those with you!  PLUS, I’m participating in a FUN blog event coming up celebrate my friend’s new cookbook (can you say COOKIE DOUGH?!), and I really want to share with you a meal my mom made for us when we got home from the hospital.  It was really delicious and totally my style, so therefore I know the readers of my blog would probably like it too!

Until then, here’s a little bit more Elliott cuteness.  🙂

    Congratulations! I have an Elliott as well (two Ls, two Ts is the way to go!) They grow up so incredibly fast, so don’t worry about spending less time in the kitchen or on the blog. They are only teeny tiny for a little while. 🙂
