I'm Still Here!

I think about blogging just about every day, really I do!  But between feedings and catching naps when I can, I can barely find my way to the shower, let alone the computer!  But I miss chatting with all of you, and wanted to check in to let you know I am still alive!

I forgot how all-encompassing having a newborn is.  But today I got out of the house for a few hours all by myself, and went shopping for a few things for Henry's room.  Girls, I stood in the middle of the store and felt completely lost!  What has happened to my decorating mojo?  

So in a few days I hope to be able to post a few photos of Henry's nursery to get some help from all of you...maybe you can help me get my mojo back!  In the meantime, here's one photo to show you what we've been doing the past few weeks.  Isn't my husband the cutest dad in the world?

More to come soon...really!

Awww, yes, he's the cutest dad! And little Henry's so tiny and precious! And don't worry, your mojo's not gone, it's just hibernating. ;) I'm so glad you're getting to enjoy that sweet little boy!

I remember those first weeks...so, so tired. Hang in there...it only lasts a little while and then he'll be running the house.

How extremely precious your boyS are!!! Please take time to be the mama of a newborn. This season will pass before you know it. Shower definately comes before blogging! Take care of yourself and enjoy...

OH MY #6 said...

Glad to hear you are well. Take your time and enjoy that baby. Personally, I can't wait till you get your "mojo" back! But that is pretty selfish!

I'm glad to see you're resting and enjoying that sweet boy. But, we've also gotta get your mojo back...I'm sure that won't be a problem. Sleep tight!

;-)

Joanna said...

Awww...What a sweet picture!

Your mojo will be back...Maybe it's due to being so busy...I have not a clue. But once a great decorator always one!

Shannon said...

So good to hear from you! Can't wait to see Henry's room. Your house is so beautiful....just look around your home and you will get it back! :)

jennykate77 said...

I was super excited to see a post from you this morning!! Litte Henry is precious...what a great pic of him and your hubby! Love that! Don't worry about the decorating or your mojo! It'll be there when you get to it and the mojo will come back!

Can't wait to see more pics!

Happy Tuesday!

Who cares about blogging when you have a sweet little baby boy to dote on!! Oh how I miss snuggling a newborn--enjoy these moments to the max!

Jamie said...

That is the cutest picture!

Jodi said...

Two years ago when I had my baby girl, I didn't know what blogging was or even if it existed. I seriously cannot imagine having the time or energy to blog, but it's great if you can. It's a nice tool to help you put the memories down in black and white! :)

Tammy said...

Enjoy your little guy. I'm sure your mojo isn't gone. It's just resting and enjoying your little guy too!

Great picture! I love "Daddy & his baby" pictures!

melissa said...

What a darling picture~I love it. Girl, you've got to give yourself TIME. Your divine decor sense will come back in full force~with more sleep and when he settles into more of a schedule. You know when things have been coming to me? When I'm sitting in a room feeding the baby and have time to look around and think. Just give it time and enjoy his sweetness and tininess while it lasts...easier said than done, I know. :)

theArthurClan said...

You'll have time to find your creative mojo later...right now focus on important things like Naps! :) Your baby sure is a cutie!

Tasha said...

He is just such a darling baby! Keep hanging in there. I am finding I have hit the fatigue stage. I am just plain tired all the time. We can do this though!!

Inspired Kara said...

Oh my word this picture is PRECIOUS!

Mimi Sue said...

Precious picture. You'll especially love it when he's about 17 and bigger than his dad and eating you out of house and home. Don't worry about us. We'll still be here but that baby will get big too soon. Mimi

Lisa & Gerald said...

Sweet Photo Enjoy the time with your little family!

Momma to Bug said...

I think it's just a case of NEW MOMMY SYNDROME because you are a wonderful decorator and you still are!!! Henry's nursery will be perfect :-)

Tara said...

SoBella Creations said...

Henry is beautiful! Hang in there. Being a new Mom can be tiring. But, oh so enjoyable.

Carolyn (Harbor Hon) said...

A little guy and his Dad. They're probably already telling each other secrets that only men share ... football, baseball, etc. You really got some handsome guys there. Cherish them. xxoo

julie & joe said...

I was just thinking about you! I love baby & daddy photos. I love to catch my guys taking a nap together.

What a perfect picture of daddy and son's joy!

This is probably the only time in our lives we don't care if we've showered or slept. Especially when your holding your precious baby. The world couldn't smell any sweeter or be any brighter.

Sweet Wishes,

Eloise said...

Henry is such a precious baby!

You are spending your energy exactly where you should be right now. The blog world will be here waiting for you. The newborn stage is fleeting.

Hugs to you. Get some rest!

Stephanie said...

I am missing your posts so much! You were the first place I went after I turned on my computer! I know that the first couple of months with a new baby are a daze so I understand! I had my first trip to Denver this month...I loved it! I have a cousin that lives in Thornton and she and her husband met us for dinner at Maggianos downtown...yummy!! Have a wonderful weekend!
Love,
Stephanie

Hormones kill decorating mojo, and render you useless in making decisions......just give yourself a little time!
