I miss blogging. I miss my blogging buddies.
I want, nay, NEED to blog.
I keep waiting for this magical moment when both of my arms are free,
when no one is crying,
when my house is clean...ish and I can sit down with my laptop without feeling guilty,
when no one needs me for soothing, playing, opening, feeding, driving, changing, monitoring, wiping, scolding, SOMEthing,
when I am not thoroughly exhausted to the core,
when my clever function returns,
when I have time to read up on all my bloggy buddies' lives first,
when life just calms down for fifteen bloody minutes.
Ain't gonna happen.
So. Here it is in a very hasty and gnarled up nutshell:
We got sick.
We got more sick.
We packed up the house.
We unpacked the house.
We settled a bit.
We sent Joe off today to Tucson for a week long business trip.
We are still trying to shake all of the sick.
We are adjusting to our new life as Utahans.
We...make that ME...are struggling to get back into the swing of things many days.
We are very humbled and grateful for all that has taken place in the last month.
And did I mention that in the midst of all that...
We had a baby?
Meet Lucy Ellen P. (here on out to be referred to as "Cee" in Blog-land)
Sorry Sami, but Joe exercised his husbandly and fatherly rights and vetoed "Agnes". :(
After 20 freakishly long hours of labor,
Born Thursday, January 20, 2011.
8.4 lbs and 20.5 inches
Lots of black hair.
Refuses to suck on a pacifier.
Smiled from the beginning.
Resides semi-permanently curled up on Mommy's chest.
Loved in abundance.
Birth story to follow.
Oh all right. If you insist. Here's a few more pictures of baby.
Joe + Evelyn = beautiful baby (Biased much??)
There's just something completely irresistable about baby toes...
