Baby Luca

 When I sat down to write this I didn't realize it had been so long since I had posted anything. It was a very long and busy Fall and holiday for me. This pregnancy, my 4th was a surprise and not the easiest on my body. I am however happy to say it was worth every ache, pain and sickness, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat just to get my little Luca. 
 
 While my other babies arrived a bit early, around 38 weeks, days passed and then weeks. I was beginning to think he would never get here and I felt like I would be pregnant forever! As you can imagine the holidays were pretty uncomfortable for me! LOL I guess this little man just wanted to be punctual and he arrived exactly on his due date, January 18th. Luca Nicolas was 7lb 16oz and 21in. long with a full head of reddish brown hair.  

 It was a quick delivery, just a few hours once we arrived at the hospital, and all natural (drug free). I am a big believer in natural childbirth and the strength women have to endure pain when faced with it. It has been a fairly quick recovery and little Luca was so alert from the moment he arrived. 
 
Believe it or not he can roll over to his back when placed on his tummy and manages quite well when holding his head up. :) He is quite the active little guy for just under a month old.

 He is a very happy baby and has fit right in to our family. His big brother and sisters just adore him and while I do have my hands full right now it is such a joyful time for us. 

 Here is one more picture of him from Valentine's Day. I can't believe how much he is changing already. Such a little love! 

* A note to all of our customers*
Thank you for your patience these past months. After giving it serious thought, we have decided to take a bit more time off in order to enjoy this little addition to the family and revamp the business a bit. We are aiming to be open again by late Spring/early Summer. 
We want to be able to provide you with the best service and products so we feel in order to do that we need to temporarily close down Noelle Garrett Designs.  Thank you so much for your understanding and we are anxious to return with new products and designs after taking some much needed rest. We will keep you updated with our blog and newsletter as to our grand reopening! 

~Warm regards,
Carrie
