I had a baby

and other life updates.

A lot has happened since my last REAL blog post, over a year ago.  Work, and life outside of work got really busy but here I am with a baby that is finally asleep and a minute of free time.

Whaaat?? I know.

Six months ago, I had a sweet baby girl.  Her name is Claire and she’s pretty amazing.

We took these seemingly serene and put together pictures a week and a half after she was born when our life was ANYTHING BUT those things.  Next time I’m taking my newborn pics in bed with under eye bags in old yoga pants and the same nursing tank I’ve been wearing for three days.  That would be more accurate.

I had a lovely (and exhausting) 16 weeks of maternity leave and have been back to work since the beginning of November.  It’s been an adjustment, the whole working plus baby thing.  There are a lot more things to cross off the list and so many more FEELINGS on any given day.

BUT I hope to get back to blogging with some sort of regularity and plan on throwing some new, first time mom stuff in with my usual mix of food, workouts and travel.

For now, I’m going to try to mess with our water heater (WHYYY do these things happen when my husband is out of town) so that I can take a hot shower, TALK SOON!
