Blogging is Hard

I really don't want this to become a Mommy Blog. No one really wants to hear about my lack of sleep, how many times I've narrowly missed being peed on or how long it's been since I've bothered with make up (four - which really isn't bad). I do still want to gush and share the occasional photo - especially when I get a good one of the smiles he's been dishing out lately - but I'd like to keep it to a minumum.

That said, there's not much time for anything else which means nothing to post. I've been thinking about blogging a lot recently, though, and what this blog is going to become in the future but I haven't really come to any conclusions. All I know is that I miss it, I miss everyone I interact with here and I can't wait to get back to it in some form. 

Today I did get to crochet a little creature from a book Matt got me for Christmas so hopefully I'll have sometihng to share here in the next few days.

In the meantime, a little gratuitous Emmett....


After all, I am a mommy - and a proud one at that!

A Quick Update

IMG_1961 As I'm sure you've guessed, my days and nights revolve around around this little guy. He'll be six weeks old tomorrow and I can't imagine where those six weeks went! We're all doing great. He had a pre-six week check up today where he was measured and weighed and he now weighs a healthy nine pounds, ten ounces. We struggled with his weight a little in those first few weeks and had to supplement breast feeding with a bottle - all seems to be on track now.

Emmett in His Bath Towel
I'm ridiculously behind on keeping in touch. Pretty much anything I do now is done one handed on the iTouch which is great for reading blogs but not for commenting or replying to emails. I do want to take a few minutes between here and Christmas to pick up some yarn again. I can't let Emmett have his first Chrsitmas without something handmade! I think some kind of crocheted toy can be made while Matt gives him his nightly bottle.

I can't believe Christmas is just a little over two weeks away! 

Would like to post more but a hungry Emmett who just had his nappy changed is now in need of his mommy....
