You guys don't give me TOO much shit about up and disapearing like that, and I won't bore you ad nauseum with the minutia of our breastfeeding issues and the crazy schedule they induced. Deal? Deal.
It's kooky how things go, though. I never expected the term 'maternity leave' to extend to this here blog, or to the world of friends I've made here, but when the crazy-making ensued, this blog and the related social circle were the first thing that suffered. In a sense it was good, b/c I needed the mental energy and whatnot, but it really taught me a lot about community and how much we need it as human beings. What I'm saying is that I've missed y'all. Heaps. Bunches, even. I didn't even know Cara was pregnant for pity's sake, and we're practically neighbors. THAT'S how out of touch I am.
In honor of National Ms ODJ Is A New Mom Drop Out day, everyone should pop into the comments and share any big news you feel like spouting. You get to toot your own horn all over again, and it will ALL be new to me, so you can count on some renewed excitement (from me) just by saying hi.
What? Yes, I did go to Rhinebeck, but only made it into about 4 barns the whole weekend and only bought 3 things. I know, it's like the twilight zone. Turns out that having a babe with me was a bit on the distracting side. That and I can never seem to get away from Dave. I swear, I think there's a time warp in that man's booth.
Now I'll move on to pictures of the babe (you can't fool me, I know what you're REALLY after), and then later we can finish catching up on the promised pictures of the pre-birth-nesting-baby-craft-extravaganza. I'll probably stretch that out a bit because, honestly? There's been no time for that sort shenanigans recently, and mama has a blog to feed.
So. Baby pictures. LOTS of them. If you're here for knitting, I'm really, really sorry, it'll be back soon. Promise.
