A Very Good Excuse...

I would like to apologize to my readers for the recent drought at this blog. I hope after reading this post you will forgive me.

Now, I would like to do something a little uncharacteristic for this blog and talk about some personal news.

During my absence, I gave birth to my second son, Thomas. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces. He has had a few bumps and had to take a few tests, but has come out of them healthy as can be. I must admit that I am still adjusting to life with a two-year-old son and a newborn. I continue to be surprised that we are now a family of four. My oldest son, Cole, has handled the newest addition well. He enjoys being the big helper, bringing us Baby Thomas' blanket and pacifier. He especially likes to hold his little brother. So far, there are no signs of jealousy, which I am thankful for. Thomas is feeding well and starting to sleep a little longer at night (which means I am getting a little more sleep, too).

I hope to be able to post a little more frequently going forward--maybe not two times a week as I was averaging during the Spring, but a month should not pass again without a post. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
