Hi there!
I hope everyone is doing well. I am doing very well, especially because this is my first blog. I hope all of you enjoy my blog and please feel free to interact with me and comment below. I look forward to any suggestions, questions, or comments.
Let me first introduce myself, my name is Ashley. I guess I would be labeled as a “stay at home mom” but I also have a photography business on the side, I write this blog for MomSpace.com, and I teach a mommy and me yoga class.
My husband Matt and I have been married for 4 years this October. We have one son, Brody, who is 15 months. We also have a 3 year old shih tzu, Cooper. We live in the suburbs of Philadelphia, in Newtown, Bucks County.
I enjoy blogging for many reasons. I find it to be extremely therapeutic, it helps me with self discovery, self improvement, and through blogging and writing I can share great deals and little tidbits of information that I have learned since having Brody.
I think the first time you either become pregnant or have a child, you may not realize you are entering an entire new world. You start to obtain an entirely new vocabulary (diaper genie, swaddle), you think and obsess about things you never even knew existed (what if I turn the swing on the fastest speed, will my baby fly out? Should I use bumpers or not?), and you analyze and research the type of nipples you should use for your baby’s first bottle the way you used to cram in college.
It is fascinating to see my friends in all different stages, some single, some dating, some married, and some no where near getting married. A bunch of my friends do have children and those are the people I have leaned on a lot since having Brody. We all reference each other with questions about our children. Sometimes you can’t get your doctor on the phone or the answers have changed since your mom was a new parent, so it is easy to rely on your friends. It is from those conversations that my blog has developed, from questions I have asked and answered.
A baby changes your life. I am sure if you are reading this blog you probably already know that. A baby flips your world upside down, what matters to you after having a child is completely different then what mattered before. But I think you would all agree that having a child adds this amazing aspect to your life that you never experienced before.
I look forward to writing and I hope you look forward to reading. I love feedback, so please leave your comments, good and bad.

I read your blog and it's wonderful that the delco times is adding one to the paper I suppose. Seriously, though, why were you chosen of all the moms out there? You intro seems candid and pleasant, but your as generic as they come. I can find 50 of you standing at the kindergarden door on any given day of the week blabbing on and on about your kid. The next blog needs to have something about you that makes you stand out from the crowd, not about how you identify with all the other PC bores out there. Jill
