mangia mondays 68: 9 month cupcake

hello there!
welcome to
a blog hop i co-host each week
with the super incredible
lisa from shine your light.

sooo... technically speaking
i don't have a food post to share this week.
i do have something a whole lot better:
my 9 month cupcake!

my sweet charlotte olivia -
or cupcake, as i lovingly nicknamed her
when she was super tiny & lived in my tummy!

 i baked my little cupcake for 9 months!
38 weeks & 5 days, to be exact. :)
hubs & i put lots of love into this little girl
& we're so excited she's finally here.

we love being able to hold her
& listen to the silliest things...
{who knew gas could be so cute?!}
watching her sleep,
even though we know that's when we should be sleeping.
everything has changed,
but we're elated.

 i love her more than anything
& can't wait to watch her grow
{or bake ;) }
some more.
what a wonderful gift we've been given!

now it's your turn!
link up those recipes & food posts!

until next time,
dowlings, out!
