So It's My Due Date

This past week, the craziest thing happened.

You see, I had this large frontal obstruction that was quite cumbersome and in the way of life...


And then, suddenly, I didn't have it anymore. Instead, I had this.



That's right! Last Tuesday, the 11th at 10:35, we welcomed our little girl into the world.


We named her Calliope (Cal-eye-oh-pee) after the greek goddess. Nate and I are both literature nerds, so we loved that Calliope is the goddess of epic poetry. The Iliad, Odyssey? Yeah, those were mused by her.

Everything is going great and we are adjusting to life as new parents. The dogs are hysterical about it and they're completely in love with her. If you follow us over on IG you can see the day to day while we get back in the swing of things. Also, tons and tons of dog/baby pictures :)

Nate and Callie are the best together. Completely heart melting.


And because she is adorable, here she is with a giant bow on her head. (Thank you Kenzie for the beautiful swaddling cloth)


We hope to be back at it soon, though we have no intention of missing any of this. Luckily with my mom visiting for so long, we were able to get quite the backlog of projects.

I hope you all are doing wonderful! I'm off to snuggle my daughter (too weird)- Thank you all who have congratulated us on social media as well!!

  4. Oh, Emma! So so so happy to see this post! So happy for you and Nate and your whole big family of humans and canines. And as a fellow lit nerd (taught high school English for about 20 years), I LOVE her name! (Names I loved for my daughter included Aurora--from the opening of The Odyssey, goddess of the dawn--and Ramona--as in, the Pest--but her dad nixed both those ideas. Boo.) Looking forward to hearing more from you, but yes: Don't miss a moment. I can wait. :-)

  11. Just found your blog after seeing it mentioned on Apartmenttherapy. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl! Your site is like a breath of fresh air in design blogdom. So wonderful not to read how much you "lurrvve" some knick knack from a big box store or constantly have to figure out the joke behind the crossed out words. Bookmarking now.
