new addition.

Long time no see my friends! Wow, has it really been this long since I posted something on my blog? Yikes! Well, I do have some amazingly exciting news to share. Our new baby girl, Carolina, was born on August 20, 2011 at 9:52am! She was 9lbs 2oz and 22in long!!! She’s huge and adorable and brings me so much joy. So far Carolina has been the extreme opposite of her sister, Aurora. Aurora has been a wonderful big sister though. She wants to hold her all the time and has only had a few really big temper tantrums over the new addition. I’m really proud of her. It’s really been an adjustment period and I think we’re far from getting things back to “normal” but I’m enjoying it. There’s nothing like cuddling with your new born to make everything okay.

I’m excited for things to start calming down and I’m already feeling like I have more energy, even if I’m only getting four hours of sleep. I’m still focusing on school work but I hope to get back to blogging as well. It’s an important release and gives me a sense of accomplishment outside of the home, and I think that’s really important for stay at home moms to have. I miss the community too. There are so many supportive bloggers out there and I can’t wait to get involved again.

Lots of love! <3
