ada's debut!


ada maeve bellemare
born may 21, 8:14am
6.6 lbs & 19.5"

day one

day two

home with the peanut

she's a good sleeper

we are over the moon!

all went really well! it took me longer than i thought it would to get these quick iphone pics up for you to see, but between nursing, sleeping and lack of sleeping, it's hard to get much done! here we are on day 12 of her life and things are really going well, we pretty much just spend our days staring at her in awe. at this point, we have finally managed to get settled into a little routine here at home and are feeling really good. we just can't imagine our lives without her... she's a keeper.

thanks so much for all of your well wishes and messages!

more soon

  20. how beautiful is this little love that angels kissed all the way here......

    hold her close and breathe her in.....i wish i had done it more than i did and i did it constantly....

  21. she is in a word beautiful, and ever so sweet. I so remember when my girls were such tiny wonders, held so close....she will surprise you every day, the awe never goes away, it just changes from time to time.

  22. your best work yet! :) She is lovely! My first was a May baby and that summer is etched in my mind as one of the best ever.

  23. so glad to meet her - she is beautiful! I especially love the last picture - so darling!
    Congrats and welcome to the world sweet baby girl!

  24. She is sooo beautiful! And born on my anniversary...a special day indeed. Only about 4 more weeks until our twins arrive! We are VERY excited to meet them!!!

  25. I just happened to stumble in here while looking at your profile for a squam retreat I wish I could attend and this sweet little girl was the first thing I saw! Just adorable :). As I new mom myself I know how precious this time is and I'm hoping you are enjoying every moment. It goes so quickly. My little Angel Face is almost 6 months old now and it has passed so quickly!

    By the way, I love her name. My daughter's middle name is also Maeve! I thought it was such a unique choice (chosen to honor my grandmother) and now I've seen it used by 3 bloggers I follow :). Great minds think alike. It's truly a beautiful name with a lovely meaning.

    I hope you enjoy your new baby. Can't wait to browse around here a bit more!

  26. Oh Sarah, congratulations on your beautiful daughter! I am so late to the party but I wanted to add this comment anyway! She is just beautiful. :)

  27. Out of curiosity, I googled the name "Ada Maeve" and this page came up. We named our daughter Ada Maeve as well. She was born on Martha's Vineyard on July 25, 2010. Congratulations to you and...GREAT NAME CHOICE!

    1. wow... i just came across this message! what a coincidence! thanks for sharing and yes, a GREAT name! :)
