This blog is going to include a few more personal posts now that I've deleted my Facebook account for those that don't have access to my family blog journal. I decided to get rid of Facebook mostly because it was just one more thing that drew me away from my responsibilities as a mother. I'd find myself drawn too often to the computer to "check" what everyone else was up to. As much as I miss the updates and miss that connection to others (being a stay at home mom can be lonely), I am grateful for the fact that I don't have much to suck me into the computer anymore. It's really nice! I just want to give my family as much attention as they deserve and feel like right now I don't have time for Facebook...too addicting.

Here's my sweet girl at 8 days old. She's already up to 8 pounds 8 ounces. She's eating well and doing great. We are loving her! The adjustment to three children has been okay so far, but who are we kidding, it's only been a little more than a week! I'm sure once the baby wakes up a little, it will become even more challenging, but I'm crossing my fingers for an easy transition. I'm hoping to blog about food and birthy thoughts sometime soon so bear with me as I adjust to this new stage of life!
