Been awhile....

Well, it certainly has been a while since I have blogged. Though I have kept in touch with all 5 of my readers through email so they know what has been happening in my life. If by chance there are other readers, I can give a reader's digest version of what has been going on here:

-Baby girl was born 2 days before Christmas in a whirlwind delivery complete with me trying to drive myself through holiday traffic to the hospital. I promise to post that whole story another time.

-Missed Christmas with my son, husband, brother-in-law, mother-in-law and BIL's girlfriend due to an extended hospital stay due to whirlwind delivery.

-Celebrated New Year's at home with my family and actually saw midnight this year due to a hungry baby.

-Nursed my baby girl back to her birth weight and then some in 2 1/2 weeks time.

-Suffered major complications from delivery and ended up in Yale New Haven Hospital for 13 days. Another blog for another day.

-Finally am home with my family, thankful to be alive, and am starting to enter the land of the living.

-Discovered the power of prayer, frinedship, family and love in a whole new way.


Now it is mid-February, my family is all back together again and I am starting to feel human again. Baby girl is getting better at sleeping at night and Big brother is wonderful to his little sister and a big help during mom's recovery.

Oh and here are my wonderful children:

As I said LOTS to be thankful for!
