Yup. It's been ages.

Two kids has been.... hard. Nora will be one next month which is just crazy. I have felt like I'm starting to get some energy again and am more interested in getting out of the house. I also have some crafty juices flowing, just in time for the holidays.

This kid is just crazy. An easy going baby has turned into a wild child. I adore his questions about the world and they just get harder and harder to answer. Parent strategizing meetings happen daily these days.

...and this one. She's awesome. They both are really but she's just at a great age - exploring, moving, happy just to watch the hustle and bustle that is life with her brother.

and us. We're awesome.  I am the luckiest woman to have a husband that's so invested in being an engaged dad and partner.

Hello Again

I'm back! going to try to start posting here more. That will surely mean lowering my standards for posting but they weren't that high to begin with I guess :)

Our sweet new babe arrived this past December. Nora Anne

I hope to start posting here to help process these big changes happening in our family as we all get used to a new member of our family. Qais has changed so much with his new role as big brother and the fact that he'll be turning 3 next week! Yikes. Some days I'm so happy and grateful for everything I have (awesome husband and 2 kids, roof over my head and yummy food in my belly) and some days I want to crawl in a hole because I'm so overwhelmed. Every day gets easier though.
