If You’re Reading This, I’ve had a Baby!


I’m writing this post, 38 weeks pregnant, and so ready to meet this little girl.  I can’t wait to smell the top of her head and kiss her cheeks and stare at her for hours on end trying to determine where she derived each little physical trait.  Since announcing this endlessly exciting news here six months ago, I’ve been asked more times than I can remember, “So what do you think will happen with the blog?”  Even though, I’ve spent countless hours pondering the same question, the best answer I can come up with is “I will just have to wait and see!”  I don’t know what life with my baby will be like yet.  Will she be a good sleeper?  Will she have a predictable schedule? Will I be sleeping at all?   Who knows!  Some new things have already been shot and you will see those going up here in the next couple of weeks, However, I’m sure there will be some noticeable changes and lulls in communication as I settle into this new phase of motherhood.  I considered hiring someone to take over for a bit or scheduling a slew of guest contributors, but I didn’t like the idea of feeling so removed from the content or what was being posted every day.  This week will most likely be full of radio silence, but if you can bare with me through these next few weeks, I promise we will eventually be back to business as usual over here!  I can almost guarantee, though, that there will be ample photos of baby girl posted here and plenty of time spent nursing to pin things here.  And if you feel like leaving a lovely comment on any given day on any given post, it will probably make my day– especially on the bumpy ones!  I promise to post photos and birth details here when I can!

Thanks for making this journey through pregnancy exponentially more exciting by being a part of it here!  Now on to the next phase… !
