Today we are so happy to finally share our news with you!
Although, I have kept the baby bump photos and pregnancy posts to a minimum, I can truly say that the path to Motherhood for me has been mostly smooth.
I have really enjoyed pregnancy and the support of family, friends, and neighbors has been astonishing to me. It seems everywhere I go, I meet other parents and we share a common bond that I hadn’t felt before.
From the laid back baby shower which was hosted by good friends…
Catered by local restaurants Joan’s on Third with yummy tarts from Amandine, a French bakery on the westside…
To the beautiful view from the delivery room the day that I gave birth.
It is even more appropriate that I introduce you to Neel Sky Vaid. Neel means blue in Hindi…Could the view of the sky from the window have been any more perfect?
Neel was born on May 7 and every day since that day the world seems brighter and more joyful to me.
Here are a few photos of him at 1 week old.
I find myself humming these Stevie Wonder lyrics to him as he wakes up:
“You are the sunshine of my life, that’s why I’ll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye, forever you’ll stay in my heart…”
I find him changing day by day and I was inspired by the words found in Joanna’s tips on Motherhood to savor these moments.
“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”
~poem by Mary Jean Irion.
These small moments are making each day special.
I have found these writers resonate even more now that I too have a little one. If you are a Mom like me, you may also enjoy:
Jen’s creative projects and admire how she’s making it all happen with 2 kiddos.

I hope you have enjoyed the long, sweet, weekend! We took the opportunity to get outside and soak in the nice weather.
Tomorrow, I am looking forward to showing you how I updated a Master Closet on a simple budget.
