why I have been neglecting the blog...

I am alive and well! Thank you for emails and comments inquiring about my whereabouts. It is nice to be missed! But attention seeking is not why I have been absent. It also wasn't the anonymous comment on the infant canopy post. Though I won't lie, it did upset me when I first read it, but that is not enough to keep me away. I have been working on a new project. The kind of project that practically sucks the life out of you. That's right, Woodward baby #4 is on it's way! The big debut will be sometime mid-January.


While I have been less sick with this pregnancy than my previous ones I have never been so exhausted! Most days I lay on the couch while the kids destroy the house. Once Michael gets home he cleans up and makes dinner. What a lucky guy, right? :)

I have many half finished projects awaiting my attention and I feel like I will be able to tackle them once I hit the second trimester which is about a week or so away. So don't give up on me!!


UPDATE: Thank you for your well wishes! You guys are the best!

Yay! Congratulations!

You know how people always say "It's all the same after 3 kids!" ?

Those people are liars. ;)

Congratulations, Erin! 4 is so fun! Hope you have a great pregnancy and that you feel better soon!

(I also just found and read that comment- I'm sure they stayed anonymous just so they wouldn't get lots of mean comments on their blog. Rotten. Too bad we cant do shin-kicks over the internet.) :)

Congrats! Hopefully as you are entering the 2nd trimester you will get a bit of energy back. of course then you'll hit the third and it comes back. I'm 3 weeks till my due date and hoping he comes a bit early.

I had to go back and read the comment on your car seat canopy post, I'd read your post before it was there - that's just weird.
