I haven't posted in a while, which seems to be the norm of late. I haven't been junking much and so I really haven't had much to share. My New Year's intention is to post at least twice a week and, now that life is slowing down after the holidays, I think I'll really get to it. But on the other hand, life might just be getting a whole lot busier!
Since everything posted on the internet lives forever, I've always been hesitant to share very much personal stuff here, trying to reserve the blog for fun things I find and repurposing projects. But I feel like those of you who read and comment all the time and whose blogs I read all the time are friends -- I feel like I know you, even though we've never met (and probably never will). AND sometimes, you just have to share good news with our friends!
On Tuesday afternoon, little Gracie came into our family! The little one who started life in our family of jokers as 'Whozit' (because we didn't know if the baby was a boy or girl) is now a part of our family history. How cool is that! As a mother, you try to imagine what it will feel like for your baby to have a baby, but nothing prepares you for the reality!
What a wonderful blessing birth is! It's hard to imagine that a year ago, she didn't even exist (except in what my family has always called 'God's pocket'). Seeing those tiny hands and feet, fingernails and eyelashes reminds me just how fragile, precious and miraculous life is! (It sounds so cliche, but it's so true...)
Mother, baby (and daddy) are all doing fine and are now back at home settling into a new routine. I'm sure that MY routine will be changing, too, and I can hardly wait! I promised not to make her an internet baby, but I can't help but share one picture...
