I don’t remember exactly when Baron started referring to our little bun in the oven as sister baby but it stuck and now that she is finally here I get a huge grin every time the boys see her and say, “hi sister baby”. They then proceed to give her a hug and a kiss – meanwhile I am a puddle of mush from the cuteness overload.

But let’s get back to the real point. She’s here!


Many of you have already read about me gushing over my baby girl or have seen several pictures of her in various sleeping poses. If you haven’t then you probably aren’t following me on Twitter. Please do, but be warned there may – neh – there will be many more adorable photos to come.


Can you believe that hair?! Gabe and Baron went shopping the day after she was born to buy sister baby some hair clips.

I am so thrilled to make this introduction.

Lovely readers and friends of Not Without Salt it is with great pleasure and joy that I introduce you to Ivy Jane Rodriguez.



Sister baby Ivy, this is my dear blogging family. They have followed you through the womb, have supported and encouraged your mom over the past four years. We laugh together, cry together but most importantly we eat together.

Again, it is with much gratitude that I come here today to thank you for your continued support, kind words, encouragement and love – even when the blog sits silent for a few weeks. You are so good to me and my entire family.


I will be back. I always come back. I can’t stay away for long.
