Back, Maybe?

Hey everyone. Sorry I fell off the face of the internet for four months. To quote Inigo Montoya, let me splain. No, there is no time. Let me sum up.

I have a two-month-old baby, so my wardrobe, time, and energy are a bit limited. That's the quick summary.

The longer version: as my pregnancy progressed, I started to hate my wardrobe. You would too, if you'd been wearing the same 10 pieces for nine months. So getting dressed in the morning wasn't very inspiring. Then at the beginning of July, I started having contractions and had to spend a week on bed rest to keep from going into labor, so I wore pajamas a lot. I got to go back to work, but only half days until my maternity leave started. Not very encouraging in terms of creative dressing.

And then my daughter was born on August 3! She is practically perfect in every way, and such a petite little peanut - 6 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches at birth, and about 10 lbs now, at 10 weeks old. Her birth was pretty easy for me - I had a scheduled c-section because she was breech, so I got a full night's sleep the night before and never had to be in labor. My recovery was quick, and I am enjoying my time at home with her so much. I'm on maternity leave until January, so I have lots of time to spend with her (although it still doesn't feel like enough!).

Here we are on her birthday.
About eight weeks old, showing off our love for shoes.
Unfortunately, a lot of my prepregnancy clothes still don't fit right. I'm only about 10 lbs away from my prepregnancy weight, but my shape is different now, so I wear the same clothes a lot. I want to try to keep up with at least some outfit posts, but I'll probably be pretty infrequent until the Peanut is a little bigger and I'm a little smaller! But in the meantime, I wanted to let whoever's still out there know that we're happy and well. And show off pictures of the Peanut. I mean, look at her. Who wouldn't?
