• Hello.

    Thanks for checking in!

    Read along as I highlight my personal life and the families I am so lucky to meet though Sherry Lane Photography! I am not a "writer" so please do not judge my misspelled words and grammatical errors :)

The Boy. Month One

I am not sure how this has happened – but our little guy Dominic is one month old already!  Just a fair warning now, this post is photo heavy! 🙂  I obviously have not had a chance to even introduce him here yet!  If you follow me on instagram (@sherry_lane) you already know Dominic quite well!!

Dominic made his entrance a memorable one, for sure.  He was born a few weeks early at 38 weeks and 2 days on May 31st.  Also known as the day tornado’s went through our neighborhood!  I went to the hospital after having lots of contractions that morning.   Was happy to be admitted and not sent home.  I progressed a bit slow through the whole day and Dominic was delivered at 8:12pm.  Pretty much the same time severe weather was hitting the area.  Everyone in the hospital was moved to the hallways away from the windows.  They tried to get us to move – but um yeah.  I was delivering!!  We were not able to go home for the first week we brought Dominic home, but once our house was cleared as livable we all got settled in.  HUGE thanks to my parents for letting the five of us literally take over their home for a week!!!  We are so thankful we did not have any major damage.  We will have to deal with some repairs over the next few weeks – but nothing compared to what some streets just a few blocks over had.

I am so incredibly thankful to my friend Anne Menitrup – with Anne Meintrup Photography.  She photographed my birth(and also maternity and newborn <3 ) and I will be forever thankful to her 🙂   To see a few of the sneak peeks click here!




The faces this kid has – well – are hilarious.  I just love every.single.one of them.  haha.




One month stats:

11lbs 11oz  (that is correct!!  He gained FOUR.POUNDS!!)

23.5 in

0-3 month clothes

size 1 diapers

eating every 2-3 hours during the day

eating every 2-4 hours over night

pee on mom and dad:  lost count!!


Having Dominic home with us is kinda hard to describe.  We were so shocked that we were having a boy after having two girls, we just assumed it was another!  Everyone knows how nervous I was to have a boy.  But I am just smitten with him 🙂  I feel like he has been a part of our family forever.   I am so excited to see what kind of crazy little boy he grows up to be.   I am just soaking up this baby stage every single day.  I know how fast it goes 🙂   I am super thankful for yet another healthy, beautiful baby.   We love you so much already Dominic!!
