Let the summing up begin:
In March, roughly 3.5 weeks before my due date, I developed a bit of a blood pressure problem. Like 200/125 problem. The doctors gently recommended that I C-section it up so as to avoid things like stroke, still birth and death.
I felt this was wise as well. At some point during the day Evangeline was born I also developed HELLP.
As crazy as it got, we both lived to tell the tale. Though to be fair I typically tell the story since my speech patterns are better. Plus shes not much of a typer yet.
After a week of recovering at the hospital, we took our 4 pound 10 ounce baby home. Everyone was excited.
We celebrated everyone's birthday's. We are now older, tireder, and no wiser then when we started.
We didn't leave our country out. We celebrated her birthday too. Like the rest of America we celebrated our freedom by eating fried food and blowing stuff up. Ah, good times.
We adopted a monkey. Hey, wait, what?
Homemade corndogs were consumed.
The truth is a lot more has happened, but it's too much to recap. I don't see myself keeping up with this blog anytime soon. I just don't have the time with the baby and homeschooling and other menial tasks like laundry and cooking/cleaning that inconsiderately take up so much of my time. I did want to stop in, say "Hi" and let you know that I started a blog with Mallory at http://homeschoolingstarters.wordpress.com/
So if you miss me like I miss you, stop by and say hi. I promise I'll update it more then once a year.
