I know this is officially a travel blog. I promise I'm not going to turn "Down the Wrabbit Hole" into a parenthood-oriented play-by-play of my child's growth and development. (Not that those blogs aren't great, because trust me, as of late I've been reading a lot of them!) However, I cannot resist the temptation - nay, the DUTY - to introduce my beautiful, big-eyed, intelligent, and breath-taking offspring to my readers. (And yes, she's just that perfect.)
|Meet my beautiful baby Avy!|
So, without further ado, please welcome little Avy to the world! She was born mid-January, and since then, time has flown by! I can't believe it is already February! But I also can't think of a better way to spend that time than with my little newborn girl (well, maybe with my little newborn girl on a Costa Rican beach...)

Avy has completely changed my life already. I am now on maternity leave, and it feels odd to not be working. I've been a workin' girl since I was 14 and have never NOT had a job. Avy is now my job, I understand that, but it still does feel weird to not have to change out of my PJs should I chose to do so. My husband is now our sole breadwinner, and that has put some pressure on him. He's handling it fabulously, I may say. And he's a champion diaper changer as well!
|She is a Flames fan, just like her Daddy. They haven't lost since she was born!|
In the future, we hope to continue our travels around the world, one destination at a time, but right now, our journey in life has taken a whole new spin. And just like every journey I go on, I plan on enjoying this one to the fullest!
|On a new journey - but just around the block for now!|
