I’ve been an absent blogger for far too long…but I had a great excuse ūüėÄ

So very delighted to introduce the newest addition to our family! Meet Babykins, the beautiful little girl, who has already nuzzled her way into our hearts and has 3 adoring siblings to prove it!

Turns out finding time to blog (let alone bathe, sleep or eat) becomes increasingly difficult with each pregnancy and additional newborn! But I am¬†finally now feeling like I’m¬†returning to “normalcy” (which in my world is really just embracing the chaos!) and am carving out some time to get back to writing and sharing here!

Big Announcement from an Absent Blogger!



As I slowly drag myself to the 13 week mark, I am happy to announce we will be welcoming a new family member in May 2015! I also want to apologize for my lack of blogging, this pregnancy has KICKED. MY. BUTT., and so I have been stuck in survival mode, just trying to make it through the day, which has meant the other activities I enjoy….like blogging and bathing, have taken a back seat. I will try to do better as I hopefully begin to regain some energy in the upcoming second trimester!

And as much as I’ve been feeling like poop, I am over the moon excited to be adding to our family. I have always dreamed of having a large family, (although Hubby and I have different visions about what number constitutes large!) and love watching as we grow, shift and evolve as a unit through the years! I love my clan like crazy!!¬†‚ô•


Oh, and I will try to minimize the pregnancy spam (read:whining!)….but newborn baby spam, come Spring, holds no such promises ūüėČ
