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. ;)

Our Sweet Teo

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

  25. What a gorgeous, sweet and loveable little baby boy….and….the name Teo that you chose for him, suits him to a tee. Enjoy your new adventure with your cutie and his great big brown eyes. Congratulations on your new arrival to you both!!!

  26. Big congratulations to you three. There is nothing better in life than what’s happening to you now.
    I am an 80-year old grandmother who is still awed with seeing a newborn. Almost every day since he was born, I have been watching my 6-year old youngest grandson Tomi on Messenger. Unfortunately, I live in Canada and he lives in Hungary and I have not seen him in person for the last 16 months. I miss not being able to kiss his cheeks and “eat” his little neck.
    From now on, your life will never be the same. Every day will be a discovery for you, everyday Téo will do something new to amaze you. Your waiting was all worth it. Plus, he’s a beautiful boy. You both deserve him wholeheartedly. Good luck with your health. Enjoy every moment with Téo who is lucky to have the best parents in the world!

  39. Congratulations! He is so beautiful. He’s a sweetheart. God Bless your lovely family.

  40. He is precious!!! Congratulations! So happy to hear that everything went well. My husband and I could not have children for 11 years. Because of all the years of infertility and medical procedures, when I finally thought I was pregnant, my doctor did not believe me and would not give me a pregnancy test. I went to another doctor and found I was 9 weeks pregnant. My husband and I were overjoyed! We both came from large families and wanted children more than anything. On our 12th anniversary, I went into labor with our first son – who is now 28. His little brother came less than 2 years later. Both my husband and myself were in our late 30’s when our second son was born. Enjoy your little bundle. It is amazing how these little babies and melt your heart and turn you into mush.

  41. Wishing you and yours the most wonderful life. Teo is a beautiful baby. Thanks for sharing.

  42. He is adorable! Congratulations!

  43. God Bless All of You!! Teo is PERFECT!! So happy to hear everything went well. Lots of love! ❤️❤️❤️

  44. Absolutely gorgeous child! I had my son 41 years ago on March 16th. You have so much fun in store. Enjoy!

  45. Congratulations! Teo is beautiful!
