Did you miss me?

Whats a few months among friends, eh?

Hi, hi, hi, hi, hi! Let's just get this out of the way. Here are my excuses for not posting since September:
1. Three children.
2. I am a little bit lazy.
3. I was trying to elevate procrastination to an art form.

But I really want to get better!  So, here are a few quick updates, and a blogger goal.

1. We're great! David's job is going well, I've adjusted to life with 3 munchkins, and Henry is cuter than ever.
2. Henry is 11 months old now (holy crap) and can crawl, pull up, cruise, climb, and he comes with a built-in radar that focuses on the most dangerous, disgusting, or messy possibility in a room and crawls over to it with the speed of a baby cheetah. It's alternately terrifying and hilarious. Just to give you a general idea of what I'm speaking of, in the past week alone he's pooped on the floor, given himself a bloody nose, thrown his toys in the toilet, and made Sweet Potato's life a living hell of pets, pats, and tugs. He seriously loves that dog.
3. I have a new project! And it involves you guys! Last weekend we had some friends over for the weekend, and my friend Amanda told me that last year she made it a goal to read 52 books in a year. Guys, my nerdy little heart just went pitter-pat, pitter-pat. So, obviously, I want to do it too. I'm a few weeks behind, but I think I can catch up.

SO, this leads me to my blogger goal. It's a two-parter. One: each week, I'm going to post the last book I finished, with a few fun tidbits from it. Second: I got a new camera for Christmas from my parents. It's a verrrrrrrrry nice one and I'm trying to learn how to use it well enough to do it justice. Its a fun new hobby, and I'm really enjoying it, SO I'm also going to post the best picture I took that past week. Now, don't make fun of me. I'm no professional. But, it will be fun, and hopefully it will get me back into the habit of blogging, which I do miss.

Now, here's a little snapshot of Henry to encourage you to come back for more next week...
I know, right?!?! Okay, okay, you don't have to beg, I'll give you one more.
 Look, he's a Newsie!!
 A baby mouse-angel!
 A truck driver!
He's even cute with his mouth full!!

Was that too much? Nahhh.


  1. YAY! I'm so glad you're back :) I was just thinking to myself this morning that I was wondering what you were up to! and oh, that baby! He is seriously adorable!

  2. LOVE that he is wearing a Ramones t in those last two. Would expect nothing less!
    TO.DIE.FOR!!! He is beyond cute. Can he please marry my daughter?

  3. I love reading your blog! So glad you are back! I too love to read and can't wait to hear about the books you are reading. Henry is adorable and I can't believe he is already 11 months. You've inspired me to get back to my blog as well. My next post is actually about a book I read over the summer, so look for it soon!

  4. Henry is HUGE and so cute! how did we end up with little blondies... you never would have guessed...
    So glad you are back and inspired by your commitment to read. Here are some good/interesting ones that I've read recently and recommend:
    Not for Sale by David Batstone
    The Help by Kathryn Stockett
    Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
    In the Presence of my Enemies by Gracia Burnham

    I would love to hear your thoughts on those! :)
