Checking In!

Hello to all of my fabulous, loyal, sweet followers!

I appreciate you all so much for hanging in there with me during this blessed (but chaotic!) period in my life, as we are nearing the time for our new baby boy to make his arrival. =) I have not been as present as I usually am in our bloggers' community, & I do miss it! But it's been a challenge just to keep all of our usual plates spinning around here, & keeping things as routine as possible for Pretty Little Bare Feet has been my #1 priority.

I've also been trying to get our house ready for the arrival of our new baby.

(His decor is "Hey Diddle Diddle," which I think coordinates nicely with Pretty Little Bare Feet's Raggedy Ann.)

Since he will start out sleeping in our room, there has been (& still is) some work to do to get our master bedroom ready for sharing. Eventually he'll move upstairs to share a room with Pretty Little Bare Feet.

(Our second&third bedrooms are *huge,* so I feel no guilt in having two small children share one of them, so we can keep our fabulous multi-purpose "spare" room as it is!)

So there have been some changes to Pretty Little Bare Feet's room, as well. & of course the doctors' visits are more frequent now. & of course I am...

worn out...

...I'm pretty much ready for the challenge of newborn+toddler, rather than this current challenge of pregnant mama + toddler. I can function without sleep...but...

...I miss having energy!
& mobility!
& not being so achy by the end of every day!
(Okay, okay, & yes, I miss having a g&t or a glass of wine in the evening, as well. ;))

So although I'll try to blog a bit more often in May (never meant to go on hiatus for this long!)...if I'm "not around," you can check in with me on Twitter or email me (at the address in my Blogger profile).

Again, I appreciate all of you!, & I have been enjoying what little catching up on your blogs I've been able to manage.

I am so inspired by all of the beautiful, colorful spring posts.

Please keep them coming!

(& if you are one of the many of us Southern folks that is or has been dealing with the severe weather today, stay safe!)
