Whew!

Hello, my friends. I've been out of the loop for awhile. My pregnancy was quite high maintenance and stressful but thankfully our little peanut came out perfect as a peach. She did arrive a little early and spent a few extra days in the hospital learning how to breathe but she's now doing fantastic! But--ohmygoodness--I forgot how hard and tiring a newborn was. Every night is like the night of the living dead cuz I'm a zombie (yes, I look like one too). She's worth it, of course, and it helps that she's so dang cute! Hopefully, I'll find time to do some artwork but in the meantime I'm going to follow what my fabulous artist friends are doing and store up my inspiration like squirrels during the winter!

Oh-My-Gosh!!!!! How sweet! She is beautiful. You'll have time to do art a little later, but right now she is your masterpiece. She is beautiful. I guess you are trying to get in those few moments to blog and stuff. It's not easy and please don't ever feel bad about not being able to do so. These moment are precious and require lots of your attention. So are you enjoying being a mom? It takes some getting use too. For months I walked around like a zombie. Parenting certainly isn't for punks LOL! Wishing you all the very best with your new blessing. Hugs.

Ohmygoshgoodness, Michaele!!!! She's a BEAUTY! What an angel. I am so pleased to see such a little cherub..congratulations on the birth of your new baby girl. Being a mom of 2 girls, I just know you will have so much love flying around your home that you'll smile for decades.
