Luca is here! Our sweet baby boy arrived on April 17th after 3 quick hours of labor. He is an absolute dream and my heart has expanded in ways I didn't think possible over the last few days. I will share more about his labor, Amalia's first time meeting him, and our first weeks at home when we all get settled and a few hours of sleep, but in the meantime, here is the story of his name!

I never thought I'd want a baby sprinkle (apparently, what they call a shower for a second kid) for baby number two but when my friends and sister offered to throw me one I was all about it. We haven't had many in-person celebrations lately and we all figured April would be warm enough to sit outside.
Hello and goodbye, my friends! I am officially starting my blog maternity leave a little early today after realizing that it's time for me to slow down and spend my days focusing on Amalia and preparing for baby boy in the coming two weeks.
I have a bunch of prewritten blog posts and incredible guest-written posts lined up so it won't be total radio silence over here, but I'll be taking a step back on the live stuff.
After months of drinking seltzer mixed with ginger ale and lots of Olipop, I've been really wanting a good cocktail. I'm only a few weeks out from a dirty martini, but in the meantime, I've been experimenting with mocktail recipes at home that I can easily add liquor to for Anel to enjoy as a regular cocktail too.
