hi there, its me again, only this time theres an addition

wow, I am such a bad blogger. It literally has almost been a year since Ive posted anything. Which let me tell you, ALOT has happened in that past year. Instead of trying to drag it out in a very long post, I think Ill just go through things quickly in a list:
  • most importantly, Im now a mommy to a beautiful baby boy
  • majority of our house renovations are finished, but separate posts will follow, kitchen and nursery are done, still waiting on that third bedroom ;)
  • hubby got a new truck since his old one was a single cab and had no room for a carseat
  • Im officially back at work and even though I enjoy the "me/adult" time, I hate not being with my baby all day
  • my sis is watching Matthew for me, so she texts alot of pics throughout the day to hold me over
  • we took our first set of family photos this past weekend and they came out absolutely adorable
  • we also just booked our first family vacation in October for Epcot's food & wine festival (I know, not very baby-centered but hes only 4 months, not much he can do anyway lol)
So since this was just a quick recap, I think Ill gradually do recap posts of the past year so I can look back and remember all the details.

If youre still following my blog, thanks for sticking it with me this long!
