Today was way too beautiful to stay inside! And now that Robert is 6 weeks old, I am starting to feel way more comfortable taking him out. I must say, we had a nice little day today. We met Viviana for a late breakfast at The Smith, followed by a little stroll through Central Park. It was such a treat! On another note, I am very excited to announce that I am not wearing maternity jeans today! This is the first time I have been able to fit into my old jeans. Granted, I do consider this pair to be my "fat jeans," but it's a move in the right direction. So I'll take it! We've been having a blast strolling around in our Orbit Baby G3 Stroller. It's perfect for the city! There will be way more on this gem at a later date. 

Here is a closer look of Robert's outfit that I took before we left.

I cannot believe our little man is one month old already! Seriously, where has the time gone? I will be honest and say that this month has not been the easiest. Some people make motherhood seem completely effortless and glamorous through their blogs, Instagrams, etc. Well, I hate to break it to you, but it's not always rainbows and butterflies. This month has been filled with some major challenges, a shit ton of emotions & an overwhelming amount of love! A lot of people celebrate their little one's monthly milestones with age blocks, age stickers, chalk boards and the like. But not this little guy. I decided to celebrate his first month a little bit differently... I invited all of his elephant friends over and threw him (and myself) a raging one month birthday party! We both really needed a good party after the month we had. Robert passed out cold from all of the fun. 

I am thinking this little party is going to be a monthly occurrence. What do you think?

I am still working on his nursery and hope to share photos of it at a later date. I have a feeling you can totally get the gist of the theme from this photo. It's basically straight out of the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue. We are in major need of some wall art. If you have any suggestions or know of any great online stores please do pass them along!

Meet our new addition, Robert Daniel Hutter! 
Born August 2, 2014 
1:10am  |  7.39oz  |  19.25in

Robert enjoys long rocks in his Mamroo, spa diaper treatments & top-shelf bottle service.

Jared and I are so over the moon in love with the little munchkin man! 

Love at first site doesn't even come close to describing the feeling of holding your baby in your arms for the first time. In that one single moment, your entire world changes! The fact that you can instantly love something so unconditionally is amazing, yet completely overwhelming emotionally. Please bear with me as we continue to get acclimated to our new life. I can't wait to keep you all up to date with what's going on with us and feature some adorable baby/mom fashion in the process. 

These photos were taken by Bella Baby Photography at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC the day of his birth. 

P.S. We did a really fun newborn photo shoot with Becca Kaye Photos this past week. I am hoping to have them up on the blog this coming week. Stay tuned!

P. P. S. In the meantime, keep up with us via Instagram with the hashtag #RDHutts.
