Introducing our son, Ronan Luka Stone, born August 10th, TEN (!!) lbs. 6 oz, 21 in long. I truly can’t believe how much time has passed since my last post, but the photo above should explain it all! This little big guy entered our lives 5 weeks ago, and life has been a bit of a roller coaster ever since. Truthfully, the last month of pregnancy and the delivery did not go at all as I’d hoped, but that all seems far away and forgotten now.
We’re getting used to life as a family of four. Sean and I have been reintroduced to that dead dog tired, parent of a newborn feeling. Our nights have been pretty sleepless, and days have been spent well staring at this boy’s sweet face (through bleary eyes). I’ve become a very regular customer at our neighborhood coffee shop, and a netflix binge user during many a long breastfeeding session. Eva is handling big sisterhoof beautifully so far. She loves our baby with a deep, smothering kind of love and wants to help at every opportunity.
A very special thanks goes out to my friends at Rodales. They sent me the nicest care package of mama and baby products (including this baggu weekender) in preparation for our little dude. I had intended to write an entire post about all the loveliness, but then somebody decided to make his debut 2.5 weeks early! When we realized it was time to head to the hospital, I packed up my new bag in a hurry. It was nice to know I could count on their high quality products for myself and baby without a second thought. You can check out their latest for fall right here.
