Welcome Home Adriana

501 comments

I’m bursting with joy to tell you that our baby girl, Adriana, arrived Sunday September 21st at 1:34pm, weighing 7 pounds and 20 inches in length. She decided to arrive 1 day before her due date – fooling her mama entirely because by that point I was convinced she was coming a week late. Not long after I published my 39 week post on Saturday, I started going into early labour (I just didn’t know that’s what it was at the time!).

I never knew life could be so crazy happy (or crazy challenging, for that matter). It’s like we’ve known her all our lives. I’m not normally a person who relaxes a great deal, but she’s shown me how to live in the moment and enjoy the right now. I feel like my life has a new sense of meaning and purpose and I’m really excited to get to know her a bit more every day. One thing is for sure, she has a great dad and looks so much like him. I can’t get over the hilarious facial expressions she makes. We have laughed so much in the 4 short days we’ve known her.

Ok, Adriana says it’s feeding time once again! Back to it.

ps – I’m thinking about sharing our birth story on here, so let me know if that is something you’d be interested in.

Thank you for all your love and support!!

I am incredibly overcome with happiness for you both and your new little one. She looks so healthy and absolutely glows. Seeing these two photos… so sweet. Thank you for sharing your pregnancy journey with us. I, for one, would love to hear her birth story :) Congratulations again, and many blessings to your family.

P.S. please let us know how Sketchie reacts to Adriana

Thank you Sonia!
Sketchie was pretty terrified of her at first. Heh. He kept his distance and was on edge when she’d cry. But he seems to be warming up to her the past couple days as he’s now always in the same room as us and sleeps in the room again. But not sure after last night as we only slept 3 hours and he’s drained today, hah. I’m sure it’ll take time!

I just love Sonia’s comment and your response! I’ve been a long-time reader and it really brightened my day to see that photo of you and Adriana in your instagram feed. It’s amazing how much love can be conveyed through a photograph. There’s no way Sketchie will be able to resist falling in love with Adriana for long!

Hi! In my experience, (I have 6 animals at home, all adopted at different times) animal adjustment is faster when you help the animal along with a bit of psychology lol. I try to make my animals feel really rewarded each time they make a small step towards accepting the new change or addition to the family. They don’t know what the small human or other animal is – to them it’s just a threat, so if you’re there as the mommy to exaggerate with the “it’s okay!” and “gooddddd kitty” in my experience the adjustment period shortens, as the animal feels more comfortable and like his needs will still be met even though there’s a new attention-seeking creature in the house. He’s used to getting all the love for himself :)

Dear Glowing Family, congratulations on your newest heaven-sent member! Adriana looks uncannily like her father. So happy for you all. Such a kick to read that hours after you posted your 39 weeks story that pre-labour began–it is hard to know what it is the first time. If you are nursing I hope you find some nursing tops asap, and that the first-timer process goes smoothly for you. La Leche League’s forum got me through some rough first months of nursing, and the LLLadies there are tops! KellyMom is also an indispensable source of reassurance (Got Milk? and other top posts). Hope when things settle down you share what you want to share. :) Congratulations again.

Hi Angela, I’ve been following your blog for about a year and never commented before, but I just felt compelled to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS on having your beautiful baby girl!

Congratulations and welcome, beautiful little Adriana! I LOVE the name!!!
I have been following your blog and especially your baby posts from Austria – and love(d) every bit of it.
Please do share your birth story – but first, take some rest and settle into your new life. As a mom of two I know this may take some time. Just in case it’s not all going as smoothly as you wished or imagined: You are not alone :) Becoming a mum is a huge change in a woman’s life. So many new things to learn, so many new responsibilities and tasks, those intense hormonal changes…it can be overwhelming. My only advice: Be kind with yourself and don’t let anything or anyone mess with your instincts – you are Adriana’s mom and YOU are the one who knows best :)

Lots and lots of love and all best wishes!!

Dear Angela,
Congratulation on the birth of your precious little bundle! I wish you and your family all the happiness in the world.

We have recently (2 month) started using your cookbook as a base for our home cooking. My husband who until now firmly believed he could not go a day without meat, recently declared: “Who would have thought that a book could bring so much joy to our life.”

Thank you for the delicious recipes and for helping me stir my husband towards healthier eating habits. Looking forward to your posts:)

Congratulations Angela and Eric! She is so beautiful. You have handled your pregnancy and birth with such grace and are a true inspiration in this world of instant updates and connectedness. I’m so glad you two were able to take time away and just be with your baby.

I’d love to hear your birth story. I don’t have children but there’s a huge baby boom amongst my friends and I love hearing these stories, especially since every single one ends with the words: every thing I went through in the last 10 months (or longer!), I would go through a million times again just to have my baby.

Warmest congratulations! She is beautiful. Your birth story is yours to share however you would like, to whatever extent you wish. I am not big into publishing these things online, as it involves a small human who doesn’t yet have a choice what the world reads about her, but you may have a different sense of the online community. In any event, writing out the story while it is still fresh, is a wonderful way to process things, and also to recall and rejoice as time passes.

Congratulations, and I’d love to hear your birth story.

I agree wholeheartedly, Angela! Being in the presence of our first little newborn brings us wildly into the present moment like none other. Congratulations – she’s gorgeous. I love her little outfit on day 1!!!!!

I also really want to say thank you so much for sharing your life, pregnancy journey, family and now, beautiful daughter! And thank you so much for being an example of what an honest, humorous, capable, loving human being is! I truly love reading your stories, thoughts and recipe creations. Your work is so valuable to me.

With the exception of 3 recipes remaining – YAY!!! happy dance – you gave me the good fortune and pleasure to recreate every recipe from your cookbook, for me, my family and my neighbours (and many 5 x’s over – they’re sooo delicious!!!!!!). I had a fun idea to complete the book by the time you gave birth, hehe and you just beat me to it. Lol! Thank you so much Angela for helping to improve my well-being, my satisfaction to eat healthy and my love for the art and preparation of food. I’m forever grateful.

My very best to you and Eric as you enter this new dimension of life. The transformation into motherhood (and fatherhood, I’m sure) is, and always will be the biggest challenge and discovery. Our son was born Jan 2013 and was definitely a long awaited dream come true in my life.

I’m interested to hear about yours and Eric’s birth story, whenever you feel up to it. ;)

Congratulations! Adriana is a very cute baby :) I hope you and Eric are able to take the time to enjoy being a family while she’s soooo little and get used to being parents before returning to work/the blogging world. It must be an overwhelming, but special year for you, with first the cookbook (that I enjoy immensely, btw) and now becoming a mother.

On the sharing of the birthing story, I think that you should only do so if you are really comfortable with it being online. It’s probably much more personal than the pregancy updates. But this is really something that only you can decide.

Wishing all of you all the best!!

Congratulations Angela! Your family looks perfect, and Adriana is a very lucky child, to have you as her parents. I wish you many happy days and calm nights <3
I would love to hear more about the birth and how she is growing every day (and making funny faces!). You and your words are a big inspiration for me, and I really hope, that soon I will be able to compare my pregnancy to your!
Lots of love to your family!

Congratulations and welcome to this world, little Adriana!
I am so happy for you – she is such a pretty baby – and what a gorgeous name!
Have fun, this will be THE most exciting journey of your lives. Oh, and don’t forget to also pay attention to her “brother” Sketchie. We do not want him to get jealous, now, do we? LOL

Congratulations on your baby girl!! And welcome to the world, Adriana! <3

Since I am 4 weeks away from my due date (and the little lady might make her appearance even earlier, due to a smaller uterus on my side) I would love to hear your birth story!! On the one hand I know that every birth story is different (so nothing can prepare me for my own), on the other hand reading every (different) birth story weirdly calms me down more instead of scaring me. I think every birth story simply is just such a wonderful story of life!

Congratulations on the beautiful new addition to your family! Everyone looks healthy and happy and that’s really lovely to see. I am 12 weeks pregnant, so I have to admit that my opinion is a little bias, but for what it’s worth I would absolutely LOVE to read your birth story!

What a beautiful baby girl! Congratulations to you and Eric on your new bundle of joy. As I am currently 33 weeks pregnant with my first (also a girl), I’ve really enjoyed following you along your pregnancy as you embark on this new motherhood journey. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you’ll share not only your birth story, but also continue the “baby blog” with other miscellaneous tips, special moments, as well as any “what not to do”.

Thanks again for sharing such a personal part of your life with us – and enjoy the precious moments…I know I can’t wait for my baby girl to arrive as well.

Hi Angela,
I used to have a blog years ago corn free cass and I just wanted to say congratulations on everything you have achieved over the last 4 years. I recently had decided to visit your page and saw you were pregnant and have been following your week by week ventures. I am currently 34 weeks pregnant, and have loved reading about your journey to mama hood. Your daughter is beyond beautiful and you look amazing! I am so happy for you guys and would love to hear about your birth story, so hopefully you decide to post about it. My husband and I are doing a home-birth, I am so anxious with the final experience of the pregnancy into having our little guy in our arms. Congratulations on your beautiful little girl and your family! xxx cant wait for what comes next

I am so so happy for you both!! What a beautiful baby girl. (I love her name!) and Mama–you look ridiculously gorgeous for having just given birth. I’m envious, haha. I would love to hear the birth story; I think Moms are generally interested in sharing that stuff. Get a bunch of new moms together, and they could talk for hours! ;) Enjoy this new role as a parent. I remind myself every day to enjoy the moment–to stop and look at my son, to smell him and breathe him in. Babies grow so so fast! And when you’re exhausted and frazzled just remember: the days (and nights!) are long, but the years are short. Congratulations again!!!

Angela – Congratulations – what a beautiful baby girl! She already looks so alert! I have never posted a comment before but have been following you for some time now and have the feeling you are like a friend. I recently bought your cookbook as well and love it! My 3rd is soy and dairy intolerant (he’s 5 months) and since I’m still nursing, I have found many delicious recipes I can enjoy on your site and cookbook! I can’t wait until you come up with baby food recipes ;)
Take good care, rest when you can, enjoy Adriana :)

So glad everything went well! She is a doll and you look so happy! Enjoy the ride.. for it is sometimes a bit challenging and lonely, specially in the middle of the night :) but it is sooo worth every moment!

Small tip for feeding sessions in the middle of the night: I used to keep my kindle by the chair and read a good book, this way I knew I would not fall asleep so easily. :)

Congrats on your sweet baby girl!!! I think we would all love to hear your birth story if you are willing to share.

On a food related note, I want to tell you that I absolutely adore your cookbook!!! I have been a vegetarian for 5 years now and LOVE to cook, so needless to say, I have a lot of cookbooks. Your cookbook is not only the first one I have sat down and read cover to cover, but it also my hands-down favorite. I have had it for 5 months now and nearly every dish I have cooked since receiving it has been one of your recipes. I love your food, your story, and your passion! I told my husband that I felt such a connection with you, since I too used to have an unhealthy relationship with food and quite often get hangry. (Your glo bars are a staple in my kitchen now.)

My passion for your cookbook has spread into my personal and professional life too! Several of my friends and co-workers have bought your cookbook and we are constantly talking about which recipes we have made and always end up raving about how wonderful they were!

Anyway, sorry for the rambling! I just wanted you to know!

Congrats again!!! She is gorgeous!

<3 Melanie

P.S.- A post about a vegan diet while pregnant would be so appreciated! My family is very concerned about my diet when I "one day" get pregnant and they insist I will have to start eating animal protein, which will never happen!

I’d love to hear your birth story! Your journey has been wonderful to follow as someone who anticipates starting a family in the next few years. My sister had her first baby a year and a half ago, but she never was able to share with me as much as I wanted to learn from her. I’ve had some trepidation about the whole process, so being able to read about your journey has made it easier to wrap my mind around pregnancy. Thank you SO much for sharing! It has meant a lot to me. Hope your recovery goes smoothly! Enjoy falling more in love with her every day!

AHHH! I can’t believe how excited I am for you… I feel like I know you personally as I refer to your website and cookbook religiously. I remember back in March when you posted that you were having a baby, I started to squeal with excitement, and my partner looked at me with a confused look on his face and I excitedly shouted “ANGELA LIDDON IS PREGNANT! YAYYYY!!” I may have even had tears in my eyes, ’cause I’m emotional to begin with plus I just love little babies. He responded by saying “who is that?” With utter disbelief (he should know due to the sole fact that we use your cookbook every day) “OH SHE GLOWS!!!!!! Get with the program man!” He laughed at me because he said that my reaction surprised him considering I have never actually met you in real life…

Regardless of if we have met in person or not (I’d go all fan girl if we did FYI), I am so sincerely happy for you. You have a beautiful baby and it truly seems like she will have some wonderful parents raising her. This post almost made me cry a little, and I feel so grateful to have stumbled on your website, as you have changed my life in more ways than you could ever comprehend. I tell everyone that will listen about your amazing recipes and I have even convinced several people I know to buy your cookbook.

CONGRATS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!! She’s gorgeous just like you. I’d love to hear the birth story as well!

Thanks Angela

Congratulations! She’s so adorable. I am happy for you and your husband. Yes, please share the story of her birth. A lot of your blog is educational in a way, showing people how to do things. I think sharing Adriane’s story would be great.

Reply

242 Kristen September 26, 2014

Adriana is absolutely perfect! She looks so alert and healthy! I know all the nutrition you passed to her definitely helped with that. I, for one, would love to hear your birth story. My daughter was breech so I missed out on the miracle of childbirth; although witnessing a woman in labor before my Cesarean was enough to convince me I could live without the experience ; )
Welcome to motherhood! Nothing has been more life-affirming, for me, than raising my daughter. She inspires me to be the most compassionate, humble, awe-inspired, fulfilled human I can be. I am sure Adriana will bring the same light to your soul.

243 Willow @ Will Cook For Friends September 26, 2014

Ahh, congratulations! She is gorgeous! I would love hearing about your birth story, if you feel so inclined to share it. It sounds like you’re both holding up really well, though (I hear a lot of parents who are just a mess in the first couple weeks after childbirth, so to be happy and laughing four days in? You two are like superparents already!)

Am I ever glad I decided to “visit” you today! Congratulations, everyone looks so happy! Welcome to the world Adriana! I’d love to read your birth story. I also need to catch up on your pregnancy journey! I’ve been a wee tad busy with my 18 month old twins and trying to feed them 3 vegan meals a day when I’m used to only feeding myself and sometimes my husband 2 meals a day. I think I need to spend more time planning and using the recipes on your blog and in your cookbook! Welcome to parenthood!

I’m also wondering if in the next few months you might share the naming process. I’d love to hear at what moment you chose the (beautiful) name, if it was always the top contender, where you found it, how you matched it to a middle name. The whole naming process really fascinates me, especially since you chose such unique name.

This post showed up in my newsfeed and I’m beside myself with how gorgeous she is! Most newborns are squinty-eyed and usually crying but she’s so alert and has perfect skin. You and Eric must be so proud, she’s an absolute doll! I’d love to hear your birth story, thank you for sharing this journey with us.

I have an 11-month old and I’ll never forget that first week; completely shell-shocked (and we were well prepared), hormonal and dead-tired. I couldn’t believe how often he needed to be fed and changed! You and Eric look like old-pros, and you’re glowing as per usual. :)

What a beautiful little girl ~ congratulations on this wondrous addition to your family. Take care and enjoy these precious first days! :)

If you’re up for something different, you might want to try Korean seaweed soup…great for after having a baby. My husband (who’s Korean) made me tons after I had my daughter, and initially I was a little worried (seaweed soup didn’t sound particularly appetizing!), but it was surprisingly delicious!! He made a vegan version, but since I don’t have his recipe handy, here’s one if you are interested: http://kimchimari.com/2011/03/15/miyeo-gook/

I am over the moon with delight about Adriana’s arrival and send heartfelt congratulations to all of you. She is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing all of the excitement leading up to the Big Day (would love to hear your birth story, too) – it’s been wonderful sharing the journey with you and remembering my own. Your family portrait is darling! May every day be magical! Keep being great to yourselves and cherish every moment. It’s true that the moments do go by too fast (even the sleepless ones Ha!) and I truly hope you enjoy being Mom as much as I do. I know you’re already an awesome Mom and have been since the day you learned the news of your pregnancy. It’s the best job ever. :-)

Although I’ve been a long time loyal reader of your blog and a HUGE fan of your cookbook, this is my first comment because I couldn’t contain my joy. :-)

Wishing you all the very best!

Congratulations Angela! What a beautiful family of three you are! I love birth stories and would love to hear yours…if you decide to share it. I think sharing birth stories is so important and in this day and age where women don’t live in family groups (so often), we often don’t hear much about birth, know what to expect, etc. I’ve had three wonderful births, all at home (close to a hospital) under the care and wisdom of three very experienced midwives. Not for everyone of course, but I think we deserve a choice in where we feel comfortable to birth. I couldn’t have birthed in a strange place, my friends and family couldn’t have birthed at home. :) Anyway, your baby is absolutely gorgeous (no wonder!!). Enjoy!

409 Kristen September 30, 2014

I have been following your amazing site for about 2 years now. When my son was 4 weeks old we discovered he was allergic to dairy and soy. Since I was nursing, I had to eliminate dairy and soy from my diet as well. After living on cereal with coconut milk and turkey/avocado sandwiches for weeks, I totally lost my love of food. My lack of protein caused me to get sick, often (I had strep throat 3 times in 4 months.)
I was so happy to find you and your recipes to help me learn to love food again and cooking while on a limited diet. Your almond ‘cream sauce’ pasta recipe was literally a life saver. It taught me an entire new way of eating and how my diet can improve my health.
My son outgrew his allergies, thankfully, but I still incorporate your recipes in our meals often.
Congratulations and best wishes to your beautiful new family! And thank you for making the first year of my family’s life a little easier.

Heavily pregnant with my first baby my cousin said to me ‘and just when you think you really can’t do it for a moment longer and you panic madly? that is the moment when you must just hang on because it is your body telling you that you are almost done’

Those words… totally saved me when push came to… well PUSH!

You never know what little bit of YOUR story will hold someone’s hand and walk next to them when the road becomes a little too steep and the doubt creeps in.

Warning, unsolicited advice: Let Dad and baby form their own routines that might be a little different from yours. I made the mistake of just taking care of everything for my husband and a year went by and he still didn’t feel comfortable changing diapers or bathing our baby. It’s tempting to just figure everything out yourself, but let Dad do some work too :)

My little guy just turned 20 months and it feels like he’s been with us for so much longer. We’ve really tried to live in the moment and enjoy him at every stage (even through the rough patches), which I think has helped the time to not speed by. So yeah–enjoy this time…and everything to come. :)

Angela, I am so very very happy for you. I used to read your blog faithfully, but have been off for awhile since I started back to work after my three kids! I am so thrilled to see that you have a beautiful new addition and hope to hear lots about her.

My sister has raised her kids vegan and I am so interested to see your new adaptations for
kid fun and food vegan style!

Just got myself a copy of your book and am loving it to bits!

Take care, and hope you get enough sleep.

Julie

Congratulations! She is so cute and precious. I forget what it’s like to have a little baby around…mine are 10, 9, and 5 now. Time goes by way too fast. Enjoy every little moment even though you’re tired and can’t keep your eyes open. Children are true gifts. I would love to hear your birth story :)

Congratulations! She is gorgeous! Would love to hear your birth story.

I don’t know if you are breastfeeding or not, but I’m wondering if you have thoughts and recipes to increase your calorie needs while breastfeeding. I am due with my second in December, and with my first, I just could not keep up with my calorie needs without snacking on high sugar foods, like chocolate. I’d like some ideas that have a little more nutritional value, and quick and easy!! Thanks

Congrats on your baby girl! Yes! Please share your birth story!! My last baby was a home water birth and my first was at the hospital with midwives. Your daughter is beautiful and she’s so lucky that she has one healthy mama! I use your cook book all the time! Tonight I made the enchiladas (my husband requested them!). Best wishes. Take it easy. Do you also know about thekindlife or integrative mom or My whole food life blogs? Other ones that are just great! :)

So happy for you! You and your husband look overjoyed! Enjoy the time getting to know each other!
I am always up for a good, honest birth story. I think the more stories there are out there, the more women can realize how many choices they have and how everything is individual. It’s not all pretty–it’s real and a bit animalisitc. I also completely respect your right to privacy and would never pressure someone to share if they didn’t want to for whatever reason.
