filling the house...

Well, long time no see huh?  It may come as no surprise to some of you what we've been up to, being that it seems that any female blogger of a certain age who disappears for a period of time is either selling their house, getting divorced, or happier in our case, having a baby.

Drawn by yours truly, the whole menagerie is represented....



Well, as you can see from our announcement postcards, our Toren was supposed to arrive today.  Much to our dismay he just couldn't wait, and arrived on the 18th.  He and I spent a week in the hospital, but are home now and much improved.  This is the first Halloween there hasn't been extensive decorating and pumpkin carving happening, and I certainly hope it's the last.  

There are countless posts waiting to be written, and I'm far too private a person for this to become yet another mommy blog, so bear with me just a few more weeks.

Happy Halloween!

  1. Awwww, congratulations, Mayfair Mistress! It would have been cool if Toren had been able to wait until Hallowe'en! I missed out too ... October 21st and two November 1sts. Soooooo close. LOL

    1. And they say third times the charm... Oh well, like you, we would have been thrilled, but it would have been nice if he could have at least waited the 3 hours to be born on his great grandfather's birthday!

      Not much of an artist anymore though, I won't admit how long that little sketch took...

  5. This is wonderful!!! No need to worry about becoming a Mommy Blog ... but a few tidbits of life with baby and old house would be perfectly fine with me. It's life, after all.

  7. Congrats!

    My wife and I are expecting soon too. I wouldn't mind some posts about babies and old house restoration to help my wife realize both can coexist :-)

    1. Congratulations Seth! Hopefully they can coexist, else there'll be a baby looking for a new home soon! Really though, I'm hoping a good baby monitor and pack and plays for the yard and every floor of the house do the trick...

    1. Less a march than a meander I think, but certainly exciting...
