Fabulous Friday

I thought I would reemerge to celebrate Fabulous Friday! This radio silence was not planned, but, as my friend said to me yesterday when I had to keep changing the time we were set to meet for breakfast, babies are the universe's way of reminding you that you ultimately have no control over your own life! So, sometimes the best laid plans fall by the wayside. I thought I'd give you a little peek at what's been happening in my life lately (while Neve sleeps in her carrier...on me...the only way she will ever sleep.)

A little over seven weeks ago, I was putting the finishing touches on this room:




And I was imagining a little person wearing things like this:


And then suddenly I had that little girl in my arms, and she was so tiny (relatively speaking).

But she started to grow so quickly!  (You might also notice that she no longer has jaundice! At first I just thought she was really tan!)


Now she is almost two months old, and we know our lives are forever changed for the better. (Excuse the bib that doesn't match, but she goes through outfits like nobody's business, so I was trying to eek a little more time out of this one!)


And she is one hearty little babe! In these weeks I have also learned that spit up doesn't stain, so no need to change that shirt, sometimes you might eat and only later realize that you have poop on your hands, that nothing makes your heart ache like hearing your baby cry, and nothing makes it worthwhile like seeing her first smile, and yes, you can run out of room for photos on your iphone. I can't believe I've only know this little person for seven weeks and two days, and at the same time, I almost cannot remember what life was like without her. Ultimately, life with a newborn is tough and beautiful every day.

That being said, I have truly missed filling my blog with things I love and interacting with all of you. While I am now truly aware that I have no control over my life and time, I hope that the cosmos allow me to check in with you all a little more frequently! It's been too long! So, the most fabulous part of this Friday? I actually had time to write this post! Woo hoo!!
