Here I Am Again... with Someone New to Introduce!

Could it be... am I actually going to update this little blog of mine?

Yup I am!!!

After a long hiatus and a couple random posts in between, I've decided to try my hand at blogging one more time.  I miss it... lots.

It's not that I haven't had tons that I've wanted to write about, because trust me when I say that there is always something going on, but I've been focused too much on the negative things going on.  This blog was meant to be a place where I celebrate the bright side of things or poke fun at the things that drive me crazy.  Unfortunately, laughing at things was hard for a little while.  Maybe my pregnancy hormones were affected my brain because I was just dwelling on negativity.  So, finding inspiration was hard even when I know it shouldn't have been.

But, I'm starting to think of things a little different.  I'm slowly starting to feel like my old self.  The things that were troubling me are still there and will tug at my heart until they change but I need to focus on the good things.

Good things.... like my girls!  Yup, Lilly was born on November 3 and she is absolutely adorable!



Of course, to me she was instantly just another member of our family and I loved her to pieces.  I wasn't sure how Abby would react towards her.  For months she's been waiting for her to come out of my belly.  For months she's been talking to her and giving my belly kisses.  But all that is way different than seeing a real life baby!  It amazed me and warmed my heart to see how she instantly accepted her as her sister.  She adores her and can't wait to see her every morning.
How proud is she?  She's the best big sister! And she put that awesome outfit together all by herself too!

On the other hand, she has become a bit more clingy and she's been testing us a bit but I'm sure we'll work that through.

So, now that I got my mind retrained to focus on all the goodness in my life, I promise I'm back!  Can't wait to catch up with all of you!!

  2. Congratulations! What great news! We had a time of adjustment, too, when my oldest daughter was all of a sudden a big sister. It gets better!
