one month old and ready for a brawl


this amazing piece of work was made by my adorable husband, mikey. scout is so very lucky to have such a creative dad. i hope his design abilities and flair for the arts rub off on scout, they are wonderful attributes to have. fight on little dude!


our baby boy is one month old as of yesterday, the 24th. i can’t believe it, this past month just flew by. scout is such a phenomenal little man and we’re so happy to have him in our lives. he and i spent the big day with his oma (my mum) his GG bandy (my mum’s mum) and his great aunt sue (my mum’s older sister) while mikey was at work. the ladies drove in from ontario to spoil the little man rotten, and that’s exactly what happened. it was our first full day out of the house, and it went very well, i was only peed on twice! their visit proved that scout has so many wonderful people in his life that love him dearly, they couldn’t take their eyes off him (i don’t blame them in the slightest, he’s a looker).

i’m four weeks old today (and obviously ecstatic about it)

i'm four weeks old today (and obviously ecstatic about it)

this is really an inaccurate portrayal of the little man, he’s such a calm baby. the only time he’s fussy is the typical i’m hungry / i’m dirty. he is going through a growth spurt at the moment, so he’s constantly eating and sleeping. please say a prayer for my nipples.



mikey is the best dad scout could ever have. he’s the luckiest little man in the whole world. i snapped this cute little photo with my phone the other morning after scout had some breakfast. he was a little fussy after feeding but calmed down and fell asleep immediately after mikey laid him down and soothed him with his voice. mikey eventually fell asleep as well, resulting in this absolutely adorable picture. my boys are perfect.

the first week

4 days old

scout at 4 days old


things are going amazing around these parts. don’t get me wrong, it’s been somewhat overwhelming, not out of control, but normal “holy shit we have a newborn” overwhelming, but that’s to be had. we’re slowly, but surely, getting into a routine, which is helpful for my schedule oriented brain.

scout is an amazing baby. he has a laid back attitude and spends his days making us smile. he was weighed yesterday (at one week old) and is only 2oz away from his birthweight (which usually takes about two weeks to get back to). it’s true what they say, milk does a body good.

to everyone who’s participated thus far with the meal train, thank you. you don’t understand how unbelievably helpful it has been for us. if it wasn’t for you guys, mikey and i would totally forget to eat. cooking is the last thing on our minds these days, our priorities lie elsewhere. if you want to help out and bring us a meal / have a meal delivered (we’ll repay you in love and baby snuggles), you can sign up here:

we’re happy, healthy and even more in love with this little man than we thought possible. thanks to everyone for their well wishes and support. your love is making this whole new chapter even more unbelievable.

8 days old

8 days old

we have such an attentive, calm and loving little baby, we honestly couldn’t ask for a more perfect little one. once i get a few free minutes to myself, i’ll sit down and write out my birth story. for now, here’s a photo of scout i snapped today after a sponge bath. he’s 8 days old and full of life. we’re so in love and couldn’t be happier.

hi, i'm carly. i gave birth to an amazing little dude named scout on 9/24/13. i have an amazing husband named mikey and two bad ass cats named dave and toots. i love roller derby, tattoos and sleeping. warning: i swear a lot and hate capital letters.

when i get free time (HA!) i like to use this space of the web to share updates and photos of scout with my friends, family and anyone else who may have stumbled upon this blog.
