Well, well, well… It’s been a long time since I’ve posted.
I’d like to dust this little bloggity blog off and start posting again, but we’ll see. Time is short these days because I now have A BABY TO TAKE CARE OF!!
Yep. Baby K is here. She arrived 9 days early (just like I did, so long ago) and has been completely rocking my world ever since. Without getting too sappy (well, actually, this is my blog and I’ll be as sappy as I damn well please) let me just say, I’ve never felt more complete as a human being than I have in the months since my daughter came into my life. My journey into motherhood has also been one of constant self-discovery. Maybe because the thing I want most in life is to be a good mother — and in order to do that, I have to truly understand myself. What I think. What I believe. What I feel. Because how can I make the best decisions possible for my daughter if I don’t know those things?
I have quite a bit to say — and the topics are all over the place — so my new goal is to get everything down one way or another (and mostly here on the blog). Lots of retroactive stuff, too, because we’ve gone from this:
|The most nervous moment of my life|
which, 17.5 hours later, led to this:
|The craziest, coolest moment of my life|
which, 8 months later, led to this:
|The most recent picture I have, taken last night — checking out The Hungry Caterpillar after bath time and before bed.|
So, there’s a whoooooole lot of stuff that’s been going on and already some of it is starting to slip away. I have a memory book for Kiernan where I plan to handwrite a lot of this, but it’s going to take forever so maybe if I record it here first, I won’t forget as much.
Plus, yanno, recipes and deep thoughts and anecdotes and home improvement and all that stuff.
For now, however, Kiernan’s taking a nap and I need to scarf down some lunch before she wakes up.
