So… the best laid plans, huh? Yeah. About that. I’ve got nothing, I’m sorry.

For those who don’t follow me on Twitter, I had my baby girl Evangeline Marie on November 12th. Why yes, that is my birthday. Let’s just not talk about it, okay? Ain’t nobody got time for a natural birth on their birthday… lemme just tell ya.

Anyway… here’s a picture. I think she’s pretty cute, but I’m a bit biased. She looks so much like her daddy (only without a beard, y’know.)

Unfortunately, as cute as she is… she’s a real little energy sucker… an everything sucker, actually. I’ve only just recently begun to get enough sleep to somewhat “function” and thanks to my husband forcing my laptop into my hands, game. I’m primarily doing Steam Streaming, as the little gremlin (as I like to call her… affectionately) can’t be in our cold den/basement yet. I wear her, but it’s mighty uncomfortable sitting in an upright chair that way. I haven’t tried streaming TS3… though the urge has been hitting me lately.

I’m breastfeeding and trying to prepare myself to return to work in March, though… so I make no promises. I make only one promise–I’m coming back to this. Eventually, I’ll find a groove–we’ll find our groove–and amidst the cute giggles, smiles, and milestones… I’ll get to re-embrace my hobbies.

Until then, thanks for hanging in there!

  • Oh my goodness, she is adorable! What a beautiful name. I had my own little gremlin over three years ago, so I know your struggles. It took me a while to get back to my Simming hobby, and to be honest, I never quite got back to it at the same level. It just means that posts don’t happen as often. But what an amazing and magical time for your family! It will go by in the quickest of blinks. Enjoy it, don’t worry about how often you post, and we will be here to enjoy whatever you are able to give!

  • Such a little cutie you have there!

    Looking forward to your return, whenever that happens!

  • I was waiting for a picture of Evangeline! She’s adorable. Don’t worry, I will never remove your bookmark. I will patiently await your next update and try to keep mine from getting behind in the meantime.
