Meet Milo!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Hello hello! Just wanted to pop in with a cute little life update. ♡

I’m delighted to share that our sweet son, Milo Alexander Martin, came to join our family this Valentine’s and we could not be more in love. After another long road to reach this point, we feel deeply aware of how fortunate we are — how many tiny miracles had to come together — to have him here with us. Currently soaking up all the snuggles and showering him with a million kisses each day because, as we’ve learned, this all just goes too fast.

I can’t wait to show you the world, beautiful boy.

  22. I’m s very excited for you and your husband to share this gorgeous baby boy! My children are both in their 40’s which is crazy unfathomable! It goes so fast. Don’t blink Mommy and Daddy! A lesson I learned too late, is that dusting and dishes will wait but babies grow up while I was doing those things. Both of my daughters grew up without emotional scars cuz I did dishes while they played, and they’re both strong successful women. God bless you and your beautiful family!
