It's been...well...a while.
Sorry 'bout that.
Last thing I knew, it was January 1, 2014.
Then I blinked.
And now it's January 3, 2015.
So I guess...Happy New Year!
I really don't even know where to begin with the catch-up session that needs to happen, so I'm just going to accept the fact that there's no way I can do the year 2014 justice and give you the major highlight of the entire year:
Huck was born.
On February 22, 2014 at exactly 3:00 p.m., JLR and I became parents to a very active, very squishy bundle of baby. We're certain nothing will ever be the same now, but I think that's normal, b/c really, with or without kids, nothing ever really is the same, is it?
In the past 10 months, we've been challenged, amused, supported, exhausted, and completely convinced that Huck is the best thing we've ever done.
We learn as we go. Parenting is not always intuitive, but it is always educational and it is almost always really, really fun.
Huck crawls around the house now like he owns the place, and I don't expect it to be too terribly long before he's walking and then running, but I'm not wishing away one moment of this time.
I know already that Huck has JLR's sense of humor. He can't talk yet, but I can tell. Just you wait. He'll prove me right.
Stay tuned for more regular posts, but for now, I'm going to let myself ease back into this process.
