Then Quinn came along and it became too difficult for me to think let alone blog. She's four months old now and doing better about not being held all the (freaking) time, so I'm planning on trying to blog more. I'm going to start that by attempting Project 365. One photo a day for the entire year. I don't think I'll update every day, so there may be five or so photos in one post, but I'll definitely be taking at least one picture a day. I'm also going to try to not have them ALL be baby related. However, the first picture is going to be, of course.
Most baby books recommend having someone stay and help you for the first three months post-partum. I don't think most baby books understand the lives of most people. My mom works full time (mostly to provide insurance for the family) so she wasn't able to take more than a couple days off of work. She also lives about 35 miles away, which isn't as far as some, but it's much too far for us. And travel takes up at least an hour so she doesn't get up here as much as she'd like. Today she came up after church and cleaned our kitchen. Of course she had to take some time to play with her granddaughter. I'm hoping this is a good omen of things to come in 2012. Happy times with my mom and daughter (and husband too!).
