Back in the blogging saddle

If you look at the date of this post and the date of my last blog post, you’ll notice I've been absent for a while (or maybe that’s an understatement). Why? Well, mainly because of this guy…

As a newborn, he redefined sleep (or the lack thereof) and put new meaning into “cry baby.” But as much as he needed my attention, I wanted him to have it even more.  I kind of lost…and found myself in the life and love of my infant son.

Then, after months of adjustment, a return to work, and an end to the world’s longest, coldest, snowiest winter in Minnesota, “little” Connor turned into this adorable chunk of a bald baby who, at six months old finally slept through the night and pretty much became the happiest baby on earth!

And then, his baby traits began to disappear right before my eyes and I found myself watching a little boy crawl, stand, toddle, then walk. His funny and attention-grabbing personality bloomed for all to see. Today, he is a toddler in every sense of the word.

So yes, I’ve been away from this blog for a long time…long enough to have a 17 month old! But I wanted to come back, and I’m not even sure of the exact reason why, because believe me my life is still as hectic as ever! You can bet I’ve missed sharing a TON of blogable moments occurring within the span of those few photos. And while I promise my posts won’t all be baby photos and bragging about my kid, it’s possible that they will be a little different. Why? Because I’ve learned a lot from Connor’s little life, and I know there are plenty of lessons ahead. So, I’ll share a few of them here…in between my thoughts on tv shows, faith, and the weird people you see at state fairs, of course.

And Heather's back too, because doing this blog together has always been the best part for us. So stay tuned for new tales from both of us.  If there is anything you’d like to hear us blog about, comment and let us know!

There. I did it. I finally blogged! It’s good to be back.
