He is here!

My precious, beautiful, healthy and strong baby boy arrived on his due date, January 9th at 40 weeks exactly.

I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to announce his birth! I will sound too cliche but yes, it has been a bit busy around here these past few weeks. And as far as silence in November and December, I will refrain from complaining too much and all I will say is that I was just trying to get through the sleepless nights (big belly was getting in the way!) and manage to make it to work on time. Everything else became less of a priority.

Anyway, whatever happened pre-baby is a bit meaningless now, all that matters right now is life after Franco. 🙂

Baby Franco cozily snuggled in just few hours after being born

And let me tell you, life after Franco has been pretty blissful thus far. I have time off work until mid April (!) and I have been loving staying at home with my little babe. All I am doing right now is attending to his every need. That and trying out new recipes 😉 God bless short term disability and the newly established NY State paid family leave. All together I have been blessed with 12 weeks off. This will be the absolute longest that I will not be going to work. T. is working more from home this month and is truly a hands on dad. Life has been busy, but wonderful. After Franco was born T. and I feel like we are going through the honeymoon stage right now. This little boy just brought so much love into our lives.

A few pix below. He is just so beautiful, it is hard not to share. xx
