Look, everybody. Look who's back again.

I know I know, I'm one of those bloggers. You know the ones, who write all the time while they are trying to have a baby and then have one and go MIA.

But let me tell you what - this whole parenting nonsense, it's no joke. 

It's only now, 3.5 months later do I feel like the fog is lifting and SP and I are starting starting to get into a groove. Don't get me wrong, I love it. I love every exhausting minute. But when I say I'm tired, I mean it. And I pretty much mean it all the time. Working full time and taking care of a baby and a house and a spouse - it's just really a lot a lot.

That being said, we're doing great!  Baby Girl (BG) is growing like a bean sprout and has started doing the most amazing things - smiling, shrieking, rolling. 

When she was about 6 wks old we flew down to So-cal so BG could meet my Daddy (Gran-boo) and a lot of our Southern CA friends!

BG and Gran-Boo! BG wasn't a huge fan of meeting Mr. Gnomie... 

BG on the "Nana" Blanket. My mom's friends trade it around when a
grandchild is born! She was the 2nd Nana of the group :)

Baby's first beach trip!
The Fam! Just missing my bro :(
We went to a friend's Baptism which meant we had our first opportunity to get BG all dressed up. And also a chance for us to finally take a semi-nice family picture. Yes she did look cute. No teeny froufy dresses are not convenient on infants.

Other than that we've mostly just been trying to figure out how to work 8hrs a day on little sleep... And how to fit in as many squishy baby moments as possible.

June will be nuts (Birthday parties, friends visiting, flying across the country with a 4 mo old...oh yeah...) but I'll do my best to get back into the blogging groove - because I miss you people. And, believe it or not, there are still a few thoughts rattling around in my crazy head.

P.S. A million points if you can name the movie the title is from :)


  1. My big fat greek wedding. Duh. This is why are friends. Kiss the bean for me.

  2. I missed your posts, glad you're back! BG is super cute and I love the gnome picture…haha.

  3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is like in the top 5 of my all time fav movies!!! BG is SO CUTE!!! That gnome picture is hilarious. Little tip: trade off "sleep in" days with the wifey. Seriously. You sleep on on Saturday and let her sleep in on Sunday. I swear that one day of sleeping in does wonders for your body rejuvenating. The lack of sleep is hands down the worst part of parenting.

    PS-Please do not be one of those bloggers that drops off the face of the earth when baby comes along. Trust me, you will want this community when TTC #2 and it is a great archive of BG's infancy and childhood. No one scrapbooks anymore, blog baby books is where it is at ;)

  4. Yay, an update! I'm so glad that you're getting into the parenting groove. It's funny how that just happens. BG is just adorable and getting so big! Your family picture is a must frame because you all are just beaming with happy. Now go write some more posts with lots of pictures. :)
