Hello again! Wow, it’s been so long! I’m sorry I just dropped off the face of the earth for a couple of weeks there – and without any warning! I have been pretty busy as I slowly start to work again. Man, whoever said balancing work with kids was hard was not kidding around! And I only have one! Definitely a learning curve… one that I am sure I will never fully master.
So, I originally took some time off from blogging because I just got too busy to keep up. But then I was really enjoying spending loads of time with Wren and Dustin without the pressure to be online all the time – or at all. I want blogging to be a fun and creative outlet for me (and it has been!) but I was feeling a bit guilty (when I wasn’t posting regularly, and then when I was, and wasn’t spending as much time with those two people up there). So a bit of a bloggy break was in order!
I thought I would include a couple of pictures so you would believe that I am still alive – as well as to see first hand how I was lured away from my computer so easily. I mean, look at those cheeks! I didn’t even stand a chance.
On that note, I have been a mother for almost 4 wonderful months now! And every day gets better and better. I continue to learn new things about this beautiful creature who is my daughter. Like how she is strong and independent. She has a mind of her own already (and she isn’t afraid to speak it!)… Can a 4 month old have a temper?! Cause I think this one does :). She is curious and likes to learn and discover new things all the time (a little too fast for this mama). She has been holding her head up unassisted from the moment she was born and is now rolling over. It’s hard to believe sitting up and crawling are right around the corner. I’m sure this won’t be the first time I want time to slow down, but as much as I want her to stay this way forever, I am so eager to discover the person she is and becomes as she grows.
I am feeling ready to start blogging again starting Monday, although I may take a day off here and there and you may see a few more personal posts in the future. My life is so changed and consumed with motherhood and all that entails, that this blog will inevitably change as well. Different, but hopefully better and more honest. Thanks to all who still read and follow me after my absence.
