Today Maverick hits his gestational age, his due date. Which also happens to be my husbands birthday. We were so excited to find out last summer that there was a chance they would share the same birthday. Never did we think for a second he would come 5 weeks early due to complications. And now as I sit here and think how different his birth story would be if we had made it to term, I am accepting that Maverick entered the world exactly when he was supposed to. God gave us this beautiful boy, all 4 pounds, at the most perfect time. This is by far our greatest achievement. My sweet boy, how I love you so. -Mom. #momlife #35weeks #babylife #babyboy #premie #duedate #ivf #ivfsuccess #ivfjourney #mavericksmith #wemadeit #myboy #miracle #aheadofthecurve #thebump #birthstory #nicu #nicubaby // 📷. @imagerybymarianne

Can I just have an honest moment. I’m tired, no erase that I’m exhausted. Mentally, physically and emotionally. I’ve been told over the past 3 weeks how lucky we are to have such a “good baby.” And yes, we are blessed that the NICU helped put him on a great schedule before coming home, but newborns and PP isn’t just about what kind of schedule the babies on. My boobs are sore, my abdomen feels like every muscle and tendon is pulled, lingering headaches paired with onset of allergies, disrupted sleep, forgetting to eat, doing laundry, washing dishes and the list goes on. I’m not complaining because this is the life I created together with my husband. This was our hearts purest desire. During this mornings feeding I was looking through pictures on my phone and came across our wedding. It was immediately after we were married that we started to try to conceive, on our own. This was the start of Mavericks birth story. He was woven into our worlds even back then. We had no idea what was in store for us, even in the darkest of moments we were united in our purpose. I know these days of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted will shift and evolve. And we will look in awe at this miracle that we’ve been entrusted to raise and protect in complete gratitude. To all the Mom’s and Dad’s feeling it today, I’m right there with you. This day to shall pass. #motherhood #imtired #newborn #baby #nicubaby #nicu #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #myboy #maverick #marriage #risingtidesociety #pregnancy #aheadofthecurve #thebump #birthstory #35weeks #postpartum #honesty #babylife #momlife //📷 @jessalovelight

Spring time in New Jersey can only mean one thing; the beginning of wedding season! And I’m having such a love-hate relationship with it right now. As someone who is normally a mover and shaker, my son is teaching me to slow down. This is the time of year when I love opening all those email inquiries. But now... how “busy” do I really want to be? I didn’t officially carve out time for maternity leave, I figured I would just initiate balance. However, the scales seem to be tipping way over onto Mavericks side and I’m ok with that, for now. 😊 #njwedding #newjerseywedding #njbride #bride #destinationwedding #weddingseason #springwedding #luxurywedding #brides #risingtidesociety #welcomegifts #custom #gifts #thankyougift #thatsdarling #styled #weddinginspiration // 📷 @torikelner

On March 14th, after a 60 hour induction which ended in an emergency C-Section, Maverick Michael Smith joined the world. At only 35 weeks we were so worried that he still needed more time. Thankfully, Maverick had minimal issues upon birth and only needed a 10 day stay in the NICU! #overachiever - I definitely would love to share more on Mave’s birth story but for now I’m just gonna gaze in awe of him all day long. #maverick #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #premie #babyboy #myson #birthstory #35weeks #nicubaby #familyofthree #miracles #thatsdarling #aheadofthecurve #laboranddelivery #ididit #myjourney #thebump #homesweethome #myworld #journeytobaby #ivf #1in8 #imamom #thankyougod

When the kindness of a high school friend you haven’t seen in 20+ years sends you a gift that makes your heart skip a beat. And it’s the exact sign you needed to be reassured that your guardian angel is walking right beside you. You take a deep breath, and whisper to the baby, Every little thing... 💙. #giftsthatmatter #journeytobaby #thatsdarling #kindness #guardianangel #ivf #ivfjourney #33weeks #bobmarley #everylittlething #keepgrowing #threelittlebirds #signsfromabove #igotthis #bedrestlife #worthit #miracle

Client meetings that make you forget about the current frigid temperatures and have you dreaming about Paris in the Spring.
