The future came and went in the mildly discouraging way that futures do.

Hi, friends. Loooooong time, no see. How’s tricks? I miss you guys and this space. I can’t make any promises about how often I’ll be here, but I’ve come to realize that I need to make time for this; it’s sort of essential to me.
Obviously, there’s lots of news since May 2014 when Maggie was only 6 months old. She just turned two and is, if I say so myself, just delightful. I adore her.
And back at the end of June, this happened:
Benjamin Nelson was born at 7:35am on June 30; he was 8 pounds, 3 ounces and 20.5 inches long.
Now, he’s almost 5 months old and I just cannot get enough of his smiley face:
He is basically the easiest baby ever. Or was, until the 4-month wakeful hit and he started waking up 2 or 3 times a night to nurse again. But he’s still the sweetest, smiley-est kid, so I think we’re coming out ahead. I have his birth story ready to go and will post it soon.
There’s just no way to catch up on everything that’s happened since I last posted, so I don’t intend to try. I’m just going to try to be here as much as can going forward. I hope you’re all still out there, and well. See you soon.
