*taptap* Is this thing on?

Knock, knock?
Who's there?
Apparently not me for the last 3 months.

My defense is, LIFE. Life has been really rich and full lately and it's just been hard to take the time to update the blog (even though I've really, really wanted to!)

I'm going to try to get caught up but here is a quick synopsis of the last few months...

Sold/bought/moved into new house
Levi turned 3

A whole lotta waiting and false alarms
FINALLY baby girl born Oct. 19th
influx of amazing friends and family, visiting and fawning over BABY GIRL
Shadoan's visit from South Carolina
The Cubs also consume our lives.

Continuing being obsessed with BABY GIRL
Celebrate Zach and I's 29th birthdays
Get phone stolen- lose all newborn pictures and video- suppress that down, down, down as if it wasn't devastating.
Zach's puts his children's book in the Festival of Trees and two local stores picked it up. (If you're lost already by that sentence, do not feel bad. A whole post explanation to come. But yes, Zach wrote a book to his own surprise.)
Thanks to obligation and process of elimination I head up the social media side of the book stuff.

Reagan's music concert
Sofie's play
Take Shep to the Nutcracker
Miss Shep's music concert, lie to him that it was cancelled due to weather, run into his friends that afternoon who ask him where he was the morning. Feel A+ about the whole situation.
Zach does a book signing and reading at the Gingerbread House toy store.
Leave for Florida for 2 weeks.

Return from an awesome trip to Florida, try to get life back on track.
Attend a make up performance of Shep's music concert that I might have asked his teachers to hold.
Basketball starts for Reagan.
Get Levi's speech tested.

My friend Whitney took all of these pictures for us 2 weeks after Josephine was born. I'm so thankful for them!

The whole gang...

I'm impressed. At 2 weeks post partum I still look approximately 32432432 weeks pregnant.
