Insert Clever Title Here

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 moved.
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.

I hope.

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...

Lucy is precious!!

i have missed your bloggy goodness but i am thankful that i get to keep up with your on Facebook.

just bask in the sweetness of your babies...your blog will still be here and i for one (of many i am sure) will keep my eyes peeled for your posts...when you find a little time.

ps...who came up with keeping one's eyes peeled?



weird and kinda gross, but i digress.


and i am going to need your new address...ya never know when i am sending out good mail, i need to be prepared.

Myya said...

Yes Baby toes are irresistable! She its so beautiful! I have been thinking of you often. I am so glad I've been able to get updates on facebook. You have A Lot on your plate, just take your time, post when you can we will all be here when you get back into a routine :) ohhh & I also need your new address!

iamwoman said...

She is So So So darling. And really, when I have a baby again (I hope), I am afraid I will disappear from blogland for a very long time. Don't beat yourself up about it;) We're just glad to hear how fine, or not so fine, you are.

cbusch said...

Lucy is beauiful!!! I have been stalking your blog waiting to hear when she arrived and to make sure you were alright. I am so excited to see you back around again through all of your extreme craziness.

Wow you are quite a strong women to make it through all of this changes in a very short amount of time. I would love your new address so I could get your gift on its way - I am so glad I had the opportunity to get to know you during the 12 Days of Christmas. Congrats!!!

Jodi said...

Glad to know you survived, somewhat! Lucy is adorable and I love her name too! Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Nancy said...

Wow! She is beautiful! Congrats! When I was reading your post I kept thinking, if you are waiting for all of that, you will never blog again. Life is rough with a new baby. But they sure are fun! I'm just not sure how people have more than one! I'm still just on my first and I'm a crazy woman!

Good luck with the adjustment period. My little monkey never took a pacifier. It's nice now since I don't have to wean her off it but it sure was annoying sometimes!

Snuggling with a newborn baby is the best! Enjoy every minute!

aubrey said...

She is so beautiful... take your time, enjoy your baby while she's still teeny. Hopefully things start to, or continue to, calm down a little for you guys.

JPK said...

Glad you are surviving, even if just barely. She is precious! Congrats!

Lisa said...

YAY!!! Someone else with the same 'waiting for it...' syndrome! So happy you found a minute to post. And Lucy is Absolutely. Completely. Beautiful. Like seriously. Ain't many cuter (maybe my Sara when she was born... ;-)
Good luck this week!!! If I can get my butt in gear we will try and come visit. :)

Wendi said...

How very sweet she is!! Good luck getting your feet under you. Mine are just starting too and my baby is almost six months.

MiMi said...

She. Is. Beautiful!!!!

Wonder Woman said...

I'm not quite sure where you are, but I don't think I'm close enough to be much of a help. I'd love to have your older ones over for an afternoon/evening and give you a bit of a break.

Lucy is gorgeous. Good luck this week.

p.s. i seriously wish i could help.

Lind Family said...

So happy for you! I'm glad everyone is well! I hope you'll share the pic of her and Joe's matching hairline! :-P

cindyrella said...

congratulations!! she is adorably pretty!!
and yes, Kristina is a Shaytard groupie - since her best friend Carly is his sister -
good luck!!!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Whew! You need a vacation! What a whirlwind. I hope you're feeling ok after all that chaos. Do remember to take care of yourself!

Impulsive Addict said...

Oh how I love her already!! She is so precious! I have thought of you several times in the last few weeks. I'm glad that you are settled. I wish I could give you like a Spa Day or something because you totally deserve it!

We have missed you!

Ryann said...

Oh wow, you have had a lot going on! And not to mention, you had a baby with all of that too? Seriously, you rock. You take the cake in my book. You are the "it" girl (woman).

She is so precious and I love her hair and her name. Love her all. Enjoy!

Patty Ann said...

Oh my!! You have been so busy! don't worry too much about blogging, we will all be here when you have time to breath again. congratulations!!! Just enjoy this time with her as it can never be recaptured.

Heather said...

Congratulations!! On surviving a very crazy couple of months and on a beautiful baby. You were in my prayers!

Sami said...

I just love her so much! Have all of your babies had that much hair when they were born???
My girls hardly had any hair until they turned 3. Sad, really...

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I know I'm late but, congrats!! She is gorgeous!!

And don't worry. I've lost most of my bloggy magic since I had to give up the hours I spent reading and commenting on other people's blogs. Now my comments have been cut in half!

Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do!
