Sitting down to type.

I've been avoiding blogging as of late, mostly because I don't really know what to blog about. The ideas just aren't flowing but I decided to sit down to type and see what happens.

People aren't kidding when they say how difficult it can be to find time when you have a newborn. Some days I am super productive and work on new design projects, get emails sent out, dishes washed, the bathroom cleaned out while she naps, and still have time to load her in the stroller and head out to the park.

AND there's also the days when she refuses to sleep more than 30 minutes at a time and I spend almost all of it holding her and bouncing her and watching so many episodes of Parenthood I don't know how to think anymore, and my biggest accomplishments are keeping her fed and getting a load of laundry done.

There's a learning curve I suppose.

We're figuring it out. Me and the little sweetie.

I'm spending much of my time trying to figure out how to clean the lint or something that builds up in her neck creases. It smells funny and I don't like my baby to smell like cheese. And let me tell you, it's difficult to convince an infant to allow you to clean their neck creases. They don't like people getting all up in their neck crease business.

In other news, it's box elder bug season. They like to cover the front of our house (since it's facing the sun all day) and look disgusting. And since most of the screens on our windows have holes in them we are unable to open any of the windows on the front side of our house for fear that they will invade.


I mean, we should probably find time to fix the holes in our screens sometime so I can enjoy the fall breeze again. But as I mentioned earlier, time can be hard to find.

In MORE other news, my wedding rings fit on my finger again! It's a very very snug fit and I doubt I can get them back off, but it's nice to be wearing them again. Hopefully my digits still have yet to shrink down to their previous comfortable-ring-wearing size.

You can do it digits! I believe in you.

Over and out.


  1. Aw ♥ so sweet...congratulations! And happy fall!!!

  2. Such a sweetie! I'm going to have to keep an eye out for neck cheese. :)

  3. ah here I am in my house trying to do dishes and laundry while my baby is sleeping! How crazy is that...well its not too crazy but I understand oh too well! I just keep thinking as mundane and interesting as it is to stay home and take care of these little cuties, this time is so precious and we will never get it back! Ellie is 5 months old today, 5 months! when I chat with friends on the phone they always want to know what I am up too, and all i really have to talk about is interesting poop stories, cute baby noises, baby dance parties that all too often involve baby barf - and well that seems to sum it all up! Its is a season in life we will never get back, oh and you just cant top cute baby noises and the smiles!
