Meet William Theodore

On December 9, 2019 at 10:20AM: We welcomed our son, William Theodore McParlan. Our lives and hearts are forever changed!

Meeting him was easily the most beautiful, amazing moment of my life. Being a first-time mom going into labor and delivery, I had little (rather, zero experience) to base any expectations on — but I truly had a positive, calm delivery. And for that, I’m incredibly grateful. We’re now recovering well at home, settling into our new routine and embracing all the newborn snuggles.

I would go through just about anything to have this little one here with us. It’s true: There’s no way to prepare for how much you’ll love your baby. The feeling was instant and totally all-encompassing. Being a mom and seeing Kevin as a Dad makes me weepy. (I can’t help it!)

Soon I’ll share more about William’s birth story, along with my personal experience with hypnobirthing (which I’m convinced benefited my pregnancy and delivery immensely) plus my favorite maternity wear throughout pregnancy and our newborn must-haves.

Welcome, William Theodore!

  • Happy 1 Month to our William! You arrived a week ahead of schedule, ready to meet the world on December 9. Since then, we’ve celebrated Christmas and New Year’s together — plus your first road trip. You love your activity play gym, contrast board books, bath time, big stretches, and lots of cuddles. We can’t wait to watch you grow! 💙

  • Cheers to 2020! My first post of the new year is published to my blog, sharing reflections on 2019 and hopes for the year ahead 🕊
  • A toast to 2019 🥂 The last year offered a lot to celebrate, personally: Our first year of marriage, a European honeymoon, a new home, and our firstborn baby. There were ups, downs, and everything in between — but I’m leaving 2019 feeling incredibly blessed, honestly a bit tired (haha) and total happiness for the new year. May your 2020 bring you love, joy, and whatever you may be wishing for 🕊
