Hello! Greetings from Newborn Land!   I am typing this with my little one snuggled in my Sleepy Wrap (LOVE this product!) trying to multi-task through minor sleep deprivation.   Please excuse me if this post is short, but I wanted to share some pictures of our new little bundle of joy!

Morgan was born on July 2nd, 2009 at 8:47am, weighing in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and 20 inches long.   She is healthy and all went great.  I have been recovering from the c-section and each day gets a little better.

It has been a period of tremendous joy, excitement and exhaustion! We are slowly adjusting to the endless hours of nursing, rocking and trying to remember to eat.  I remember before Emma was born moms would tell me how it was hard to find time to fit in a shower in the early days.  I always thought people were being dramatic, as I couldn’t fathom how it could be that hard to find the time to shower.   Then I had a newborn and I totally GOT IT! 

So, here I am writing this at 2pm in my pajamas, NOT showered and I have not had lunch!  The nice thing is that I know that someday I will shower and eat again, so I am trying to enjoy this period of time when they are so little and can snuggle up against you and sleep curled up like a little love bug.  

More to come from our Adventures in Newborn Land, in the meantime, I hope everyone is having a great summer!   

If you have any fun activities or events or summer ideas to share with me, please drop me an email to

    I am so happy to hear that things went so well! I also have to tell you that it is totally NOT FAIR that you look so good in what are obviously the moments after you’ve given birth.There’s no way I’d share my photos of those moments! hehe

    Congrats on your beautiful family Jen!!

    Hi there, I just started following your blog. Congratulations to you and your family. Morgan is beautiful! You added a plug for the sleep wrap. I’m currently looking for a baby wrap since the sling didn’t work out for me and my little one. She’s 7 months now and I’m wondering if the sleep wrap will still be a good wrap to use now. Also it’s so hot now that I’m concerned if it’ll be too hot for the both of us. I like to get your take on the product. Please email me when you get a chance. Thank you!

    First off, thanks to everyone for your nice comments!

    Eve, to respond to your Sleepy Wrap question – I really love it! However, I have a newborn, and love it for a newborn. I don’t have experiece using it with a 7 mo. old.

    I don’t know where you live – but I might take your daughter into Milkalicious ( in Aliso Viejo (where I bought mine.) They will let you test it out with her before you buy it. I think that is the way to go.

    It is hard to find a good sling/wrap! With my first daughter, I never found one I liked. I am happy I found this one early. Hopefully it will grow with us!!!

    Thanks again for your comment!
