One whole week with this wrinkly little fella 💙
My absolute favorite times are the middle of the night feedings...when it’s just the two of us. Sean & London are asleep, my phone is silent, the world is quiet, and it’s just me & him. I look forward to his little grunts that wake me up and tell me it’s time to nurse him and stare at him in the quiet peace of the night when no one is bothering us. ✨
I never looked forward to those feedings with London and I always felt so lonely and sad in the middle of the night, but I’ve changed my mindset this time around and am savoring these peaceful moments with just him.
And don’t worry, the postpartum beauty is still very real. 😉 My boobs are spewing everywhere, my crotch stitches are sore, my hemorrhoids are throbbing, I have a constant migraine from the blood loss I endured after delivery, and London is driving me bonkers. #realmomlife#keepingitreal
But I know this stage only lasts a short time, so I’m reminding myself to embrace it and cherish it all. ❤️
And pregnant friends: I highly suggest investing in a pair of the @blanqigirls maternity leggings! They are the best and give lots of belly and back support - and are totally opaque! I plan on wearing them for a while postpartum too! (And I’m not affiliated with them- just sharing because they are legit awesome!)
Day 11 and rocking this squishy mombod ❤️
I still have a baby bump
I’m still wearing maternity clothes
It will be like that for a while
And no, I’m not upset about it at all
Babies prefer soft, squishy surfaces to cuddle on after all 😍 So I’m not about to make him snuggle a six-pack (not that I ever had one to begin with 😂) This squish is for you, baby boy! You’re welcome! 💙😉
So mamas, don’t stress about your bodies. No one cares what you look like right now. Your baby wants you to be soft and cuddly. Enjoy this precious time and embrace the squish.
You have the rest of your life to have a tight mombod. 😉 And when you’re ready for that stage of life, I’ll be there to show you the way. ❤️ So love every roll and patch of cellulite you have. Your weight and squish don’t define you. ✨ They are a badge of honor.

💕Another one of my favorites from her first moments session. 😍
💕Nora had her first doctor's appointment today at the pediatrician and let's just say we've learned to start getting ready early to get out the door. 😂
💕Also, I surely didn't realize how many outfits we would be going through daily between peeing and spitting up! This girl is messy. LOL.
💕Despite our exhaustion we are adjusting and learning new things every day and figuring out parenting one thing at a time!

A much earlier blessing than we expected (funny how God does things on his watch, when the time is right), we welcomed our sweet little BOYS 💙 into the world. .
After my water breaking on Monday evening, an ambulance ride to a nearby (1.5 hr away) children’s hospital with one of the highest rated NICUs in the country, and the threat of an emergency delivery due to a condition called Vasa Previa...we calmly and with with the most competent surgeons and NICUs teams we could have asked for, moved forward with delivering our 29 week old babies. .

Babies are doing amazing, breathing nearly completely unassisted and mom is resting, pumping colostrum and wondering how it is that the baby bump is gone and I am now a #boymom !?!
Dad @pg_rocca is beyond excited and proud. The biggest supporter and lover to this family. We are all so lucky to have him. .
A big shoutout to big sister @kapturedbykiana for these pics and for her over abundance of love and support. ❤️
