My family and friends are mostly scattered across the country. My friends that are in the Atlanta area don’t see Brigid that often because of the relatively germ-free bubble her heart condition requires. I’m terrible about sending out as many baby updates to various people as I should. My attempt at a baby book has been a complete FAIL. In general, my family, friends, and the poor kid herself will have absolutely no memory of her childhood if I don’t do something about it.

So, TA-DA!!!

Welcome to my life. Exciting, huh?

I hope to use this blog to track the lightning fast speed at which Brigid is growing. And maybe by documenting it for everyone who loves her, but can’t see her every day, it will also force me to slow down and enjoy the ride. Already, I find myself thinking things like ‘I can’t wait for her to move on to solid foods’ and ‘I wish she could sit up on her own already’, but I know she’s going to blow right through these milestones and move on to the next ones well before I’m fully prepared for it. Before I know it, she’s going to be walking, talking, starting school, meeting boys, and learning to drive. I’ll be the bane of her existence, the woman whose sole purpose is to embarrass her in front of her friends, and if she’s anything like me, we’re going to be in for a bumpy few years. But we’re not there yet…right now, she likes to cuddle and snuggle, and she’s perfectly content to fall asleep in my arms. And that’s good enough for me.

(Oh, and of course I'll talk about myself, a lot, too. And tell funny stories that will probably make my husband look bad. It is my blog, after all...)

  1. Awesome blog! Can't wait to keep reading and see lots of pictures of that cute one (and I don't mean Steve by 'cute one').


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
