Meet Teo!

Baby Teo

Hi friends! Just wanted to pop in briefly from maternity leave to share an update today, because there’s someone very special I’d love for you to meet…

…our sweet Teo!

Our son, Teo (pronounced the Spanish way, “tay-oh”) Elliott Martin, was born on March 16. And for those of you who have been following our story, I’m thankful to report that the epidural that we had been praying might work despite my back issues (I shared a bit about this in my last post) mercifully took hold on the very first try, which meant that both Barclay and I were able to be there together to hear Teo’s first precious cries and welcome him into the world. Goodness…what a moment.⁣⁣ ♡

After so many ups and downs this pregnancy, we’re still in awe that our little boy is finally here. He’s perfect and healthy and super-snuggly and outrageously cute…and we feel like the luckiest parents in the world. Truly can’t believe how much we love him and how sweet and natural life together as a family of three already feels. We spend a record amount of time each day just staring at him and soaking up his sweet newborn cuddles and showering his yummy cheeks with a million kisses. And we are loving this opportunity to finally learn how to be parents — even sleep-deprived, sore-in-all-the-places (hellooo, postpartum), often-hilariously-trial-and-erroring-our-way-through-each-new-day and all. This tiny little human has captured our hearts in the biggest of ways, and we are just so happy that he’s ours.

Anyway, I can’t wait to share more updates with you once I’m back from maternity leave. But in the meantime, feel free as always to follow along on Instagram for more behind the scenes updates from our lil’ newborn bubble over here. And thank you again for all of the love and prayers and encouragement you’ve been sending our way these past few weeks especially. We feel it and are sending you back so much love from Barcelona today.

Here are a few pics from these first few weeks together with Teo as a family of three! ♡

Is there anything cuter than baby yawns?! We’re obsessed.

Teo Meeting The Pups

Meeting the pups for the very first time. We carefully introduced them and they’re getting along great! Although tbh, they mainly just ignore him 99% of the time. ;)

Alright, I’m logging off to get back to gazing into these big blue eyes. :) Thanks for reading, everyone! xoxo

  1. Oh my God!! He’s such a little perfection! Lots of blessings!
    Loved all the photos, thanks for sharing <3 Not only the journey, but the destination.
    I wish you as parents all kind of blessings in your day to day decisions, to lead him into a happy and healthy life.
    Mom, remember you are enough, and to take each day as it comes, one at a time. Celebrate yourself for this miracle of life. Give yourself permission to ask for help and rest along with your little one.
    Dad, read a lot of books, sometimes even with funny voices and noises. Having sense of humor is going to be one skill he will need a lot in life.
    Embrace and enjoy everty single moment, as they grow too fast!
    Love,
