seven twenty-seven twenty-ten.

The anticipation of labor was a lot worse than the actual experience. I had wonderful nurses and Kev to support me through the early stages of labor to the very end. It will take me a little while to articulate my thoughts on the day, but for now I'd like to introduce you to Aspen, our daughter.



Aspen arrived just before 5pm, weighing 7 lbs and measuring 18 inches long. She has a head of beautiful, dark and luscious hair and Kev thinks she looks like my Grandpa Vito.

She inhaled a lot of fluids and was whisked to NICU for some extra care and attention. It was so hard to see her go after holding her for just a couple of minutes. She's still not back yet and I'm so anxious to have her in my arms so Kev and I can get to know her.

We're truly blessed to have this little Pilates buddy in our lives today and I thank you for all your prayers, love and support.
