We've been settling in the past week. May I just say that I AM SO MUCH HAPPIER NOW?!
No pictures lately, I just found my camera the other day, but I'll take pictures this weekend of the little squirt. Violet had her 'official' 4 month checkup yesterday, even though it was a few weeks late. She is 17lbs 1oz, 26 3/4" long. The nurse who did her immunizations was a pro -- she did 3 shots in about 5 seconds flat.
Afterwards, we headed over to this absolutely gigantic furniture store in Kansas City. Violet got a cute white crib (her old one was 1-not ours, 2-too big, 3-kinda crappy) and I got myself a computer chair. I drooled over a THIRTY INCH flat screen computer monitor while we were there. So pretty. So very, very expensive.
I realized the other day that I have not been writing about homemaking lately, and that has primarily been due to getting use to dealing with a newborn the past few months, and also, moving TWICE in the last few months. I apologize for a lack of quality content. I am working hard to set aside time every morning to respond to emails, respond to comments, and to work on new posts.
That reminds me, I am going to make a much bigger effort to respond to comments. I always read them, I always check out the website of who comments, but I rarely make time to comment in return. While I cannot promise that I will be 100% successful in doing this, I'm going to try much harder!
Before I head off to make some dinner, I just wanted to take a second to thank all my readers, you beautiful people you, for visiting this website. I am trying hard to balance computer time with all of the diaper changing, bottle washing, formula making time. I appreciate all the comments and emails I receive. Thanks for hanging in there while I have been getting adjusted to being a mom! Please keep coming back, please keep commenting, please keep emailing. I love to get to know everyone, to visit your sites, to feel a connection to my readers. Much love!*
