don't worry...

... we're still alive over here.

Motherhood is more stressful and tiring, and at the same time, brings me more joy than I even imagined.  All I can think about lately is my baby, when my next nap time is, and what's for dinner. I wish I had more of a desire to blog, but it's been kind of nice to take it easy for a bit. I'm hoping that soon my creative side will re-emerge- it seems to have gone into hiding for now.

Silas is growing fast! Almost too fast, me thinks. He's smiling a ton and starting to coo a bit. We love watching him learn new things about his world every day. I still can't believe I grew this tiny person inside my body.




I'm slowly adjusting to this new life and body. Honestly, I really miss my baby belly. I've never felt as beautiful as when I was pregnant and it's a bit of a shock to go from that to a jello-belly that still makes me appear 4 months pregnant. Getting dressed in the morning is a bit depressing, despite knowing without a doubt that this kiddo is totally worth it. I was thinking perhaps I'd do some postpartum style posts, but seriously, I'm just clueless in that area lately.

So, that's what's going on over here. Lots of sleepless nights, one adorable child, and tons of adjustments for all of us. Instagram is where I'm hanging out most days, so follow me over there if you need some cute baby fixes.

Now let's see if I can sneak some lunch in while Si snoozes...

  1. Having kids (well, having a second kid) killed my blog. Just keep in mind that every minute you spend taking care of that little one is an important one, and that when you are ready your blog will still be there. Babies grow too fast -soak in every minute!

  3. The creative juices will come back, but maybe not for a while. It took me a few months to get back into blogging and doing my normal things.

    Like you, I also miss my baby belly. And I'm 5 MONTHS postpartum! Haha:) I still haven't gotten used to the way my belly feels. The longer you breastfeed, the more weight will come off! I haven't been working out much, so it's taken a while for me to start fitting into pre-pregnancy clothes, but I'm hoping that'll change soon.

    No matter what, being a momma is the best! Long nights and days are tough, but they're oh-so worth it! =)

  8. I felt most beautiful while pregnant too! The after part was a little shocking the first time, but you'll be back to normal soon. Silas is so sweet! Go easy on yourself, you're in the stage of many adjustments.

  10. It sounds like you are getting into a groove. I think all I thought about was napping and food while my daughter was a newborn too. Enjoy those moments and take lots of naps. It totally is what made me feel sane. Silas is so precious. Glad you are doing well and I look forward to your future posts. When you are up to it. Take all the time you need. ;)

  14. Invest in a pair of spanks if you dont have them already. I got some like this http://www.spanx.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2990097&cp=12635685.12689129&parentPage=family after baby #2 and they were worth every penny to not feel frumpy during that weight losing time.

    Enjoy your baby snuggle time. This is such a precious season in life.
