Can you believe...

that my tiny baby has grown into this beautiful, intelligent, strong-willed, very active almost toddler?!

Karleigh-10 months 1 week

Yes we're still very alive although very much different than the family you read about last year.  A lot of changes have gone on in the past few months and blogging got lost in the shuffle.  The time since Karleigh was born has been hectic, fast-paced, exhausting, and the most amazing times of our lives!  Kevin is a fantastic daddy and I pray every day that I am a good enough mommy for this precious little thing!

As of the end of last school year I made the jump from workaholic high school business/technology teacher to stay at home mom!  Well as much as a stay at home mom as I'll ever be...I'm actually working as a book keeper for our family business.  I'm in the office 1 day a week and do a little work from home during nap time the rest of the week.

I have been keeping up with my blog reading though.  I am proud to say that after 10 1/2 months, I'm still nursing Karleigh and while she nurses I'm able to read blogs on my iPhone!  Most days it is the only time I'm on blogger, facebook, or twitter.  Nursing was really rough during that last half of the school year but you'll have to wait to hear about that.  It deserves a blog post all its own!

Truthfully, while I long to be an awesome blogger like Anna, Kim, Andrea, Becky, Bonnie, Carla, and many of the other blogs I read...it just isn't in the cards for me.  I wish I had posts that go up everyday that have cute crafts and tasty recipes or just in general interesting topics.  I struggle in finding time to write and in deciding what to say.  Maybe someday...I'm going to try to start back slowly...maybe join a few memes that are going on around the blogworld.

We will see...as of right now I need to get busy...I'm feeding Lil Priss lunch, dinner is in the crockpot, I've got papers to gather for our accountant & loan officer, boxes to pack, and I need to get ready for our open house this weekend because as of next week we've bought a new house and are moving across town!
