TAKING CARE OF A BRAND NEW BABY, that's what.
This, folks, is baby B. Back in late August my incredible wife had a very short but intense labor, totally rocked it, and little B is the result.
In December my wife went back to work, and I've been doing the stay-at-home-dad thing while also trying to write full time. It has been an interesting process (one worthy of another blog post entirely), but I'm happy to say that things are going wonderfully on both fronts (baby and writing). And it looks like blogging may finally be working its way back into my regimen as well :-).
I've included a picture montage of the past six months for you. Enjoy (because, seriously, my child is freaking adorable).
|Things started out a bit slow.|
|Sleep was the general order of the day.|
|But soon B's curiosity took over.|
|She's become a wide-eyed observer of the universe |
(and totes has FOMO--if she knows Raych and I are doing
something and she isn't part of it, she definitely lets us know).
|Her personality has begun to emerge, and let me tell you--she's an absolute card.|
|We've explored the outside world together (and sometimes she wasn't that impressed tbh).|
|She experienced her first Christmas. (Also pictured: her amazing, gorgeous mother.)|
|Alaskan blood runs strong in her veins.|
|She owns a pair of mighty fine kicks (probably a few dozen pairs, actually).|
|And when she isn't wearing her mighty fine kicks, one of her recent hobbies includes chomping on her own toes.|
|She got her first haircut just last week and had a ball.|
|We're pals, she and I.|
|And she's pretty much had me wrapped around her finger from day one.|
So yeah. That's why I haven't blogged for the past six months. Pretty great excuse, if you ask me.
