party of four

Ok, so this post is long overdue.  Like, almost 3 months overdue…  So, yeah, Baby W finally arrived!  (Back in November.)  Wooooooooooohooooooooooo!  Our little family of three has expanded to a family of four.  Six, if you count our first two (much hairier and barkier) baby boys (H and C) that came to us back in 2006.  So, yeah, just me and a house full of wild boys.  And loving it.

Party of Four Sleepy Boys

These past few months have been crazy.  Fun-crazy, but still crazy.  I mean, I remember maternity leave with J, and while those first few weeks were insanely tiring, it leveled out and I was able to get a few things done around here while he slept some days — and nights.

But with W, it has been different.  I have gotten nothing done.  Well, nothing that wasn’t key to keeping our little foursome rolling along.  Partly because I knew how fast the time would fly and I didn’t want to spend it doing anything but holding him tight.  Partly because having a toddler and a newborn was a bit overwhelming, and it took every ounce of my attention to keep the bigger, energetic one from accidentally injuring the smaller, can’t-defend-himself-yet one.  And partly because I found Downton Abbey and proceeded to binge-watch every episode I could get while holding said precious newborn tight.

Party of Four My Boys

And honestly, once my project/posting schedule started to slip, it got easier and easier to put it off.  But now, 3 whole months since my last post, I declare it time to get back on the horse, er, keyboard.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to knock out a small project this weekend and report back on it next week.  Otherwise, I may just drone on about how awesome my boys are.  Or how I’m pretty sure I was born to be a boy-mom.  So, yeah, we’ll see.

Well, that’s what I’ve been up to lately.  Not a lot of home improving around here.  Lots of idea hatching, couch sitting, diaper changing, and TV binge-watching.  O, and who are we kidding?!  Some bon-bon eating, too :)

What have you been up to lately?  I’ve missed you.

This weekend, I went to Haven, a conference for home and DIY bloggers, and it was amazing.  I was so excited to get to go this year.  Last year, when they had the conference, I didn’t have a blog yet but read all … Continue reading
