Marley Olatayo Yusuf arrived on September 14th, 2018 at 12:18pm. The birth story will wait for another day, but this little nugget has changed our world and turned it upside down (in a good way). He was born at 7 pounds, 11 ounces (of pure joy) and he is 20.5 inches long. His middle name comes from his daddy’s tribe in Nigeria and it means happiness and joy, which fits this little man perfectly. Days have been filled with walks, snuggles and ravenous eating. Nights have been filled with the same, but both my husband and I are eager to get some sleep soon once we have a better routine. As I am writing this, Marley is 9 days old and I look back and cannot remember what life was without him! We are so excited for this new adventure and now I am officially a mom (to a human, not just cats) and I am excited to share all that I learn along the way. Cheers to all parents out there. It is not easy to function on little sleep (now I know), but the endless love keeps you going and it is all worth it at the end of the day.
