Update! My Amazing Life!

It has been much much much too long since I have made an entry on my blog! I have so missed the stitching blog community and I can only hope my absence won't have removed me from this wonderful circle.

I have been away so long because my life has been so abundant with blessings the past several months. We purchased a home and have spent a lot of time and energy getting it just right for our family. We have been building new friendships. And most of all we have been readying ourselves for the arrival of a new baby.

Our sweet baby girl decided to make her appearance early on the morning of February 10th - several days past her due date but right on time none-the-less. We are absolutely overjoyed to have welcomed her into our lives! Cuddle Bug is fascinated with his new baby sister, DH is smitten, and I am a much more confident mom this time around!

We are still getting settled in with our little Lady Bug. We are adapting, forming new routines, and finding a new "normal."

I'm a protective mommy and don't really like posting head-on pics or names of the kiddos in a public forum such as this. But I will make an exception for this one post and introduce our most recent blessing :)

I've seen your comments on my blog lately and wondered where you'd been! I even clicked over to your blog to see if I'd been missing posts.

New house and new baby are very valid reasons for taking a break from blogging. And what a sweet little one you have there...congrats! *Love* the nicknames for your kiddos, too!

Welcome sweet baby Sarah!!!

Just was looking through my blog list the other day and wondered about you. I had thought there was to be a baby sometime around now.

So good to have a post from you. Glad to hear that things are going well in your world.

We miss you. I have kept you in my Google reader, in hopes that you would have time to leave a blog for us.

Love hearing from you.
