Long Time No Blog

It's certainly hard to believe that the last time I posted on this blog was sometime in mid- February, snow was covering the ground and I was just about done with my pregnancy. Since then, so much has taken place, the Spring has returned, the flowers are blooming and we have all been adjusting to life with a new baby.

My little guy absolutely adores his baby sister, but there has still been a bit of a rocky adjustment period we have had to survive and which we are still working on from time to time. It's hard to go from being the one and only to the older more seemingly responsible sibling. He's also always looking for a playmate and sometime has a hard time understanding that the little one is not quite ready to join him in his games. Things are getting better though and we have all been settling into our new routine nicely.
We are enjoying the spring like weather immensely and can't get enough of the outdoors. I love to walk around in the yard and see what new flower or plant has decided to poke it's head out for all to see. Lately I have been enjoying the Lilacs, my favorites. It's hard to decide what I like best about them; their beautiful color and delicate blooms or that amazing aroma they give off.

Hubby had a birthday recently, and we had a quiet and relaxed celebration at home. My little guy and I baked him a cake and we ordered take out sushi and opened presents. Because I knew that with the arrival of our little one I would not have any time for crafting, I actually made a birthday card for my hubby a few weeks before baby's arrival. He was a bit impressed that I put so much thought into his birthday weeks before time. What can I say, I'm that kind of a girl.

Another exciting project that has been stirring some buzz around the house is our new outdoor play set. We thought it was the right time to upgrade our play area with the arrival of our second child, of course big brother was all for it.

It took my hubby and my Dad three days to put this set together, a real beast of a project but well worth it!

Our little one is now two months old, but things are still far from getting back to normal around here. I'm trying to enjoy it the best as I can, because everyday with the baby is a precious gift, or at least I try to remind myself of that at 3am feedings.

I'm hoping that soon I'll be able to get my craft on again, but for now I'm enjoying browsing through all the other beautiful card creations out there and reading all of my favorite blogs.

Until the next time,
