Well hello there!

Hello friends, it has been a long while, hasn't it?  I thought I would take a moment to say hello and let you all know that I am still here and that although blogging has come to a bit of a stand still at the moment, it is still very near and dear to my heart.  I miss blogging but have to admit this little hiatus I have been on has actually been a bit freeing.  One less thing to worry about in an already chaotic day.  Blogging is a double edge sword at times, you want to be able to document all of those thoughts, ideas, and precious moments in your life, however, blogging takes away a lot of time from all of those things.  One of the primary reasons blogging has come to a stand still is my love of sleep.  Being the SAHM of a toddler and 6 month old, sleep is at an all time premium for me and when I do have the time to enjoy a few hours of uninterrupted sleep, I take it!!!  Nicholas has been a bit of night owl these past few months and goes to bed until around 11pm.  However, he will sleep in until sometimes 10am in the morning with one feeding around 5-7am.  I honestly can not complain, he has been a rock star sleeper with a few blips here and there.  I do wish I could tweak his sleeping and shift him from a 9pm-8am shift like his sister.  Then all would be right with the world and we would return to a more normal blogging routine.  Until then, after I put that sweet boy down for the night, I run into the bathroom to wash my face, brush my teeth, take out my contacts, pump and hit the hay.  It's 11:20pm and I am just about to turn into a pumpkin as it is but wanted to say hello and leave you with a sweet picture of my beautiful six month old baby boy.  He is an angel and such a blessing in our lives.

For now, I am more of a mini-blogger where you can find daily updates of our life on Facebook, Instagram and sometimes Twitter

Will be back soon, once I turn my sweet little man's schedule around.  Until then, if I am not in bed by at least midnight, I will end up looking like this in the morning.

See you soon!

  1. So sweet!! Enjoy your time with your littles... and your precious sleep time too! That's a good stretch of sleep for a little guy. Hopefully he'll adjust his hours soon for you though- I totally understand what you mean by getting them on the same schedule! My little guy just turned 4 months on Saturday. He's a good sleeper too. Yay!! Take care! I love following you on IG and FB :)

    Wow, I'm impressed that your son sleeps that much!!! At that age, our daughter was getting, in a 24 hour day, approx. 7 hours sleep, total! She had acid reflux, and our lives were basically put on hold for the first year. Unfortunately, not a fun time. The good news is, she got better, but she's still a night owl. She will be 5 in a week, and now, we just go to bed, and if she's still awake in her bed, oh well, not our problem!

    And, by the way, he's so cute!!!

  3. how is he 6 months old??? and how have I not seen him yet?

  4. Such adorable pictures! I cannot believe he's already 6 mos. old. Crazy!

  5. When my almost all now-grown children were kids, they learned I became a pumpkin at 9:00. I'm impressed you can delay your "pumpkining" to the more traditional midnight hour!

    Sleep when you can, and enjoy the childhood years. Finding the life/blog balance can be tricky. I struggle with it sometimes, too, and I'm nearly an empty-nester!

  6. he is such a cutie! I hear ya, sometimes we need to just take that time. love keeping up with you on instagram!

  7. Karen! I was going to tweet this to you, but I know how fun it is to get a comment when you actually took the time to blog, so I'm leaving it here instead! How on earth is N 6 months already?! Gosh, time flies! He is such a handsome little man!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
