I’ve been MIA from the internet lately, as Nick and I welcomed our little girl to the world a few days ago! She came in at 6lb 9oz and 19 inches long, and her name is Nora Wang Nelson. But we’re going to call her “Nori” for as long as she allows us to ; )

Everyone tells me this sweet newborn phase flies by too quickly. As brand new parents we’re trying to take in every cuddly, beautiful, poop-filled, sleep-deprived moment, but it still doesn’t quite feel real that she’s here and she’s all ours. With each day we’re discovering new things about her, as she grows both physically and in her little personality. She’s part Chinese, Filipino, and mixed European – and we can’t wait for her to learn more about her heritage as she grows up.

I got several questions about Nori’s birth story and can’t wait to share that in a bit along with hospital bag tips (now that I can actually speak to some things I found useful)! And no matter how you give birth, the postpartum period is no joke physically, mentally and emotionally, so I might share my experience with that too if there’s any interest.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much for your kind messages and comments and for being with us on our journey to her. We’re so excited to see where she takes us next.

    From the photos, I can see that Nori is strong and poised and she know what she likes. She will do well, especially with parents like you. Yes, those early months are much harder than most dare to mention. Share away!

    Congrats you guys, Nori is beautiful! You must be proud as punch. Can’t wait to see her dressed up in more outfits, she can’t go wrong with 2 such stylish parents!
    By the way I HAD to immediately purchase the Copper Pearl peach blanket for our newborn girl as soon as I saw your pic – it has just arrived and is even more gorgeous in real life! Thanks for the inspo Jean, and thank god they have an Aussie site too! All the best getting to know your little one, your birth story made me teary, remembering the arrival of our daughter. I hope you are recovering well and Nick is looking after his 2 best girls! X
