“Want a sandwich?”

It’s definitely cave mode over here.


I walked outside this morning to let Bell do her thing, and the fresh air felt so nice. It kind of reminds me of when I’d be home sick from school and then on the day I went back, the sun would seem so bright. Maybe we’ll take a walk today 😉

Even though we’ve spent lots of time in the house over the past few days, I couldn’t be happier to spend it with my two favorite people.

baby and dad

We’ve become nocturnal, and I’ve been posting more fitness content lately instead of the usual “here’s what we’re up to” mix since we’re still getting the hang of things. All of the pictures I’ve taken have been of this beautiful tiny thing-

her fingers and toes


and my most intense workout involves shaking a rattle and making silly faces.

 the girls

She was not impressed.

Meals have been super simple- at least once during the day, one of us will say “want a sandwich?” and make a giant sandwich for each of us,

eggs and things

eggs and oats

and meals brought over from the fam, like this salad from Zinburger


(chicken, greens,

and their truffle fries…


Someone just woke up and wants to eat/snuggle, so I’m off but I’ll be back with a Family post later tonight <3



For fun:

  2. Jenn on January 12, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Your baby is so cute. And so tiny in her daddy’s arms. Love it.

  3. kari on January 12, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    OMG those are the most adorable pictures! she is beautiful baby girl and the pilot is handsome!

  4. mary on January 12, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Cute! You’re probably not going to feel like blogging (or doing much of anything besides baby care) for a while, and when you do feel like blogging it’ll probably be mostly about the baby that you want to talk about. Which is fine with me!

    Aww she’s so beautiful! This post is making my ovaries start to fire up. I need to tell them to calm down and hibernate for a bit longer… I’m only 22! 😛

  6. Wendy on January 12, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Gina…I totally gasped when I saw the pic of Pilot and Olivia. She is absolutely gorgeous (and he looks so proud)!!! Thank you for sharing her with us.

  7. Shan on January 12, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    You are amazing to be blogging so diligently with a baby under a week old! Those days are such a blur to me, but also the best days of my life!!!

  8. ashley on January 12, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    It looks like Bella is enjoying her new sister! 🙂

  9. Jenny@HealthyMOChick on January 12, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Seriously enjoy every ounce of those snuggles you can get…the older they get the less of them you get 🙂

  10. Faith on January 12, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Girl, keep taking it easy! Spend at least two weeks doing as little as possible besides eating, resting, and feeding/loving the little one: You deserve it!

  11. Kath on January 12, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    I’m so thrilled for you, she’s a beauty. And the video is great haha.

  12. Casey @ OatsAndNanners on January 12, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    You can already tell she’s going to be daddy’s little girl! I’m so glad you’re enjoying these magical moments and sharing them with us!

  13. Lisa O on January 12, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    She is such a pretty newborn! It was worth her not coming early, they often look like little old men but your girl is just gorgeous. Hope you’re enjoying the first few days and getting a few hours sleep!

  14. Rachel on January 12, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Olivia has your eyes 100%, so adorable.

  15. Sarah on January 13, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Oh my gosh, she’s got the sweetest face! Enjoy spending time with your little bundle of joy.

  16. Jrm on January 13, 2012 at 12:34 am

    Zinburger truffle fries, salad with ranch … Yum, up there for splurge meals. Their zucchini fries are the bomb too.

  17. Lauren @ Sassy Molassy on January 13, 2012 at 1:15 am

    She is so tiny! Enjoy. Would love to hear about what your biggest surprises have been and how different mommyhood is so far than what you expected (if anything).

  18. Carrie R. on January 13, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Snuggle your munchkin! Oh she is so cute!!!!! 😀

  19. Carrie R. on January 13, 2012 at 1:30 am

    Snuggle your Munchkin!!!! Oh she is so CUTE!!!

    Note Bell’s face in the rattle picture…”Over to you guys…what should we try next?” I knew Bella would be an active puppy parent lol… 😉

  20. Shaina on January 13, 2012 at 1:30 am

    Your belly went down so fast!! Not that I’m surprised but impressive!

    And in that pic w/ Bella, she’s looking at the camera like “ummmm that should be me! hello!” haha

    And the video…Oh my gosh that video ISSOTRUE! “I eat really well, like REALLY well!” hehehe 😉

  24. Christina on January 13, 2012 at 9:49 am

  25. theorist on January 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

  26. Anna @ The Guiltless Life on January 13, 2012 at 11:29 am

    I’m amazed you’re even blogging at all so don’t worry about it! You’re doing so well if you’re still managing to eat well and play with her – a walk sounds like heaven! Such nice family time!

  27. Sarah on January 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    I adore those baby pj’s. She could not be any cuter 🙂

  28. Haley on January 13, 2012 at 12:58 pm

  29. CATHY on January 13, 2012 at 2:42 pm

  30. Nadine on January 13, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Congrats on your beautiful bundle of joy. I just decided to pop over here…saying to myself “I wonder if she had her baby…” looks like I’ve got some catching up to do on your blog. She is so adorable! You and your hubby must be on cloud nine…***off to go read previous entries***

  33. Nawshine on January 14, 2012 at 8:56 am


    Congratulationss!! I an ardent reader but didnt really keep in touch lately. I was following your pregnancy and was super duper happy to see that you have already given birth to a sweet baby girl! Congratulation to you and the pilot. Wish you tons of goodies for the years ahead! xoxo

  34. Pam on January 14, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Such a cute little baby! I love the Pilot and Olivia picture, so adorable to see a grown man hold a tiny baby.
    I can see how you would get teary-eyed when you see him with her. I imagine my husband doing the same someday, cannot wait 🙂

  35. knotsbyashley on January 15, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    She is absolutely precious – very happy for you and your new addition to the family 🙂
