Greetings, friends! It occurred to me that I have been absent from my blog for nearly the whole summer. You see, I was in the process of baby-making — and as it turns out, that's pretty taxing work!
While I had a mostly enjoyable pregnancy, I began having difficulties being on my feet in the kitchen for hours of cooking (sad!) and also using my laptop on my lap, which no longer existed starting sometime around mid-June. Thus, very little experimental cooking or blogging.
The end result of my hiatus? A beautiful baby girl named Kaitlyn Grace. She has been a true blessing, and we're so happy she's here! She was born August 4, 2012, just a day after my birthday.
Here she is in the hospital, one day old.
And here she is just a couple weeks old.
Now she's 8 weeks old, and it's hard to believe how quickly time has passed! She's adorable and has brought so much joy to us.
So please pardon my absence, but know that it was for a good cause! It's great to be back in the blogosphere! :)
