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.  🙂
