Henry's Birth Story

I went back and forth on whether or not I should share this, but I just kept coming back to the fact that I wanted to write it down before it all started to disappeared with the rest of my brain. That, and I loved reading other people’s birth stories leading up to our big day. I especially loved reading the positive ones - so I could go into the whole ordeal with a strong mindset. Which is something I find really important. Those stories helped keep me focused on what a miracle it all really is instead of how scary it could be. I will preface this by saying - EVERY birth story is amazing. If literally everything went “wrong” in your eyes, but you got to hold your little one at the end - that is beautiful. It’s all so incredibly beautiful. Which is why I wanted to share.

Henry's Classic Birth Announcement by Papermoss

Ok, first let me just say that I know letterpress can read as a bit much for a birth announcement. But ya’ll, I waited a long time for this moment, and I wanted to shout it from the rooftops in true Abby Capalbo style. Which totally calls for letterpress. Plus I love that it’s a keepsake, something we can display or frame, or something I can hold in my hand and cry over when he goes to college. All very important. I knew I wanted to work with my good friend Emily at Papermoss (she also did our wedding invites which were stunning!) - so the minute we announced we were expecting, Emily started working away.

Newborn - 4 Month Old: Baby Gear You Actually Use

Now that Henry is past the 4 month mark (and I am somewhat out of the newborn fog) I find myself looking back at the first time parents we were just months ago and wanting to give them a hug. And a high five. And maybe a bottle of champagne. Those first few months are no joke. It’s a crazy, wonderful, emotional time. When I do take a moment to think about those tender first months, I’m so proud of us. All of us. Andrew, Myself, Henry, Otto & Clementine. We all hit the ground running, celebrated small victories, and snuggled a lot. We survived, and sometimes we made a meal. We laughed a lot and cried a lot. But mostly we just thanked God for this beautiful little boy.

Introducing Henry Arthur + Nursery Tour

On October 24th, during a full moon, Henry Arthur Capalbo decided to join our world. At that moment our lives were forever changed. No one could ever prepare me for the rush of emotions that would follow his arrival. It’s impossible to explain, and I won’t even try. I will say love took on a whole new meaning - not only for this new person, but also for my little family. Andrew and I have always felt lucky to do this life thing together, but that night took everything to another level. I remember looking at Andrew and just being so grateful for him my heart could explode. Look at this little life we created.

Decking the Halls of My Nantucket Dream Home

You know how Oprah always tells you to put things out into the universe so they are attracted back to you? Well universe, I want this house on Nantucket. That doesn't seem to be asking too much, now does it? As I've mentioned before, I love real estate. And dreamy real estate over looking the Atlantic Ocean in my favorite little town of 'Sconset on the sweetest island (that just so happens to be outfitted by all things Nantucket Looms) might be as good as it gets if you ask me. Well, I got to decorate it for Christmas during a shoot for the fabulous ladies at Nantucket Looms (they are my fav) and call it my job, and I thought I would share it with you. Welcome to my (dream) home.
