Alright… It’s time! Everyone is asking to see baby Kirra, and I can’t hold back any longer! We are so beyond in love with her!! I never imagined I could love someone with all that I have, but my love for her grows each and every day. And since everyone has been so patient, I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you all:)

We are so incredibly lucky! Kirra is the happiest, most beautiful baby with a constant smile and lots of goo-ing and gaa-ing! She loves giving Corey and I the biggest smiles, but I can’t wait until she giggles for the first time — right now she gives lots of expressions but no noise. She sleeps 6-7 hours a night (only waking up once or twice) and is pretty laid back (unless of course she’s hungry, has to burp, needs a diaper change, or gets restless!).

I absolutely love being a mom — Kirra is my number one priority.  If I’m being completely honest, the first month of no sleep, C-Section recovery, unpacking, and getting back into the swing of things was pretty grueling. But, at the end of the day, all I had to do was take one look at Kirra and none of that mattered anymore.  Plus, we had tons of help from our amazing friends and family! My new in-laws came out from Australia to stay with us for a bit, so we’ve had a few extra hands around the house.

Kirra is 8-weeks old now, and our lives are starting to settle down to normal. I’m no longer experiencing pregnancy brain, a roller coaster of emotions, or a lack of energy — In fact, I am officially back on my Pilates grind! But let me tell you, my core does NOT work out the way it used to… but I will get there! Once I have my routine in place, I’ll do a post on post-baby workout tips:)

I know these pictures were a long time coming, so I want to thank you all for your patience. I guess this new parenting thing has made us a little overprotective of our baby, but now that we have had time to soak it all in and adjust to our newest addition, I can’t wait to begin this journey as a new mother and share everything I learn along the way!

Keep checking back here for more updates, XOXO
