Some of you may have guessed from my extended recent absence that Baby H has made his debut!
He was born the morning of January 8, 2015, weighing a sturdy 8 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 21.5 inches long. We have been home from the hospital a little over a week and it’s been quite a whirlwind! He’s an amazing baby; really sweet and snuggly, and also alert and really strong! We are quite taken with him.
I experienced some extensive blood loss following delivery and was severely anemic for a few days afterward, so I’m taking an iron supplement and have been trying to get lots of rest (the ultimate catch 22 with a newborn!) and eat as healthfully as possible.
Impossibly large bowls of oatmeal (also good for lactation!) and green smoothies have been lifesavers.
Plus a big batch of Becky’s Spinach Artichoke Dip with Garlic Cashew Cream is great for one-handed dipping 🙂
Blogging is definitely still something I intend to do, albeit with somewhat less frequency as I adjust to my new life as a mother. My goal is going to be once a week but please don’t hold it against me if it turns out to be a bit less here and there. I do have some fun posts pre-scheduled in the next few weeks so do look out for those!
Oh and I hope to be back to reading and commenting on all of your blogs soon too! Don’t be surprised if the majority of the comments are timestamped in the wee hours of the morning…

Aaaah congratulations!!! I’m sorry to hear that you had complications. I was also laid up when we first brought Darrol Henry home, and it was rough. You will get through it, though, and there is so much fun waiting for you on the other side! And I’m delighted that my spinach dip is keeping you nourished!
Thanks girl! You know that dip is my absolute favorite!!
Congratulations!! He’s gorgeous! I’m so happy for you and look forward to updates as they come! 🙂
Thanks Cadry! 🙂
Congratulations — what a beautiful boy! He looks very wise. 🙂 I’m also a fan of Becky’s artichoke dip — especially the baked version.
Thank you!! I have a feeling he’ll be outsmarting me in no time haha 🙂
Congratulations new mommy! He is precious. I’m glad you are doing better and all is well with Baby H. You sound like me after I had little tummy. Take the time you need for you and the baby. The blogging world will be here whenever you’re ready.
Thank you so much 🙂
