Maternity Leave

What kind of stay at home mom takes maternity leave? Apparently I do.  Sorry to have left you all in the dark for so long, but, hey, raising two kids in no joke.  While the baby is relatively low maintenance (insofar as little babies can be "low maintenance"), I seriously needed the past few months to adjust to this new way of life.  But now that I can once again find time to get dressed before lunchtime, I can carve out time for ye olde blog.  Oh?  What's that?  You don't care about me?  You just want the details on the baby?  Oh alright...

Sweet baby Elle was born on July 2nd, 4 days late (much to my chagrin).  She weighed 8 lbs 9 oz, and is the spitting image of her daddy.  I won't bore you with a birth story, except to say that it was med free, painful, triumphant, and one of the happiest days of my life.  She is sweetness personified, the very image of happiness, and she lights up our hearts with joy every minute of every day.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you The World's Sweetest Baby:

Life is good.  We are happy, and I'm happy to be back :)
