Waaaah!

Yes, our baby has arrived! You probably assumed so with my absence from posting. We had a beautiful birth experience, and have another healthy girl in our family.

I will continue to post, but please understand if my posts are irregular in the coming weeks. It will take a couple of months for things to 'normalize' in our home again. Also, wee babe is a bit of a screamer right now (still a cutie though!), so that makes for even busier days. So, I will return with some food posts soon, and until then, please send us some calm, good-sleeping baby vibes, okay?! :)

...oh, and bake up some cookies on my behalf... I'm missing doing so myself right now!

Congrats, and I had a feisty girl my first time around. My best friend was the ergo baby carrie since it was the only way I could get anything done. Also, white noise. The vacuum worked like a charm, but now we prefer the air purifier. In my experience though, these little girls turn into amazing toddlers and now I have a super awesome 5 year old. Good luck!

Congrats Dreena and family! our wee girl was a bit of a screamer too....she levelled off eventually and now is showing signs of having a sunnier (though determined!) disposition. i'll be thinking of you as you and the girls adjust to new daily rhythms :) take care
