Hi and welcome SITSa’s!!!
I’m so happy to have you here! A big shout out and thank you to Tiffany and Heather – the two masterminds behind the beauty that is SITS (The Secret is in the Sauce for those of you not in the know). It is a great place to meet many, many great and wonderful bloggers. Thanks to SITS I have made many friends in the past 14 months (back when I joined there were only about 180 members and now look at it!!).
If this is your first time stopping by, well then please sit back and relax, because that’s the way we try to be are here.I’ve been trying to bake cookies and should have a batch coming out of the oven in a few minutes!
Please don’t mind Noah – he’s my 16 month old ball of terror energy and he keeps me on my toes all day long. I actually started blogging thanks to him. I wanted to find a way to keep my family updated and quite frankly I also needed something to keep me awake during those many middle of the night nursing sessions. From there it has evolved and now here we are… the blog is no longer solely about Noah, but he still plays a major role in it!
(He just had to feed himself his oatmeal – I think he got more on his face than in his mouth! Oh and yes… I am totally reusing this picture from my last post… oh well.)
We will be welcoming our second child April 2nd (though I’m guessing it will be more like late March – am really not hoping for an April Fools baby!!). I’m sure she will have us wrapped around her little fingers as quickly as her brother did!! I’m a little nervous about having 2 kids 20 months apart, but I’m sure we will find a way to survive!!
I’m a SAHM and if trying to keep the house clean (I’m failing miserably!), and taking care of Noah and his soon to be little sister won’t be keeping me busy enough, I’ve started going back to school again this fall in hopes of completing a degree in Early Childhood Education by the time the two little rug rats go to school. This was my first semester back to school in 9 years and my first semester back to school in the US in 13 years (I got my Industrial Business degree in Germany)!! Needless to say I was more than a little nervous, which my husband thought was both funny and cute.
Ahhh, my husband… without him I would not be doing all of this. He has stood beside me, pushed me to go beyond my boundaries, and has helped me to open my eyes to new things. He busts his butt daily so that I can stay at home with Noah. He is the love of my life and I thank the internet for helping me find him!!
I’ve picked out a few posts from the past…
I had a date… – my first lunch date with my husband post-baby
Playing God – the hardest decision any pet owner ever has to make
My Speech – my first speech this past semester
Thanks for stopping by… feel free to look around and check things out. I have a giveaway over there on the side for a great educational kids toy that ends tomorrow, so that might be worth looking at too!!
I can’t wait to get to know all of you and check out your blogs too!!
