Well, It's Been Awhile.

You know when it's been a long time since you've {gone to the gym/gotten a haircut/updated your blog/spoken to your grandparents} and the build up and thought of just finally biting the bullet and accomplishing said task makes you want to crawl under the covers for the third day in a row? That's where I got myself. 

Somewhere along the line I feel like I lost my voice. If you scan through the archives, there's a lot more genuine Chelsea in there. I'm not sure why or when I started feeling some sort of pressure to write a certain way or even to keep up this little old piece of the internet {which clearly it hasn't been} {Kept up, that is} but it was there in my head, making me feel like I needed to have something fantastic to say or a project to show off. 

Last year I started working for a fantastic company and I saw a lot of my time eaten up by a 33 minute commute {39 with moderate traffic} and therefore some things just had to go. Like a social life. The working-girl coupled with pregnancy exhaustion was, well, that was that. No excuse, just explanation. Now I have the best and hardest job of all. Keeping Elliot alive and happy.

I feel terrible that my efforts have been less than stellar when it comes to documenting the sweet little life of the most beautiful girl. We waited so, so long for her and I've been enjoying almost every minute with her. Almost. The middle of the night marathon feedings have gotten old. {I need to take back my night!}

So, what I'll be doing for the next little while is trying not to be flustered and probably fudging facts and details here and there so I can have a bit more to show of the last 8 months than a life devoid of pictures of the chubbiest-cheeked, happy-go-lucky girl we call Elliot.

If I end up posting more than once a month, well...that's an improvement. When you're starting from scratch again, you can only get better. 

To end this proper, here's a picture from Christmas that I DIDN'T plaster all over Facebook already.

 Did your heart just stop a bit from the cuteness of that nose-crinkling giggle? Mine did. 
And the camera adds 3lbs.

You're welks.

I totally did the nose crinkle with you. I think I started doing it b/c of you. What a cute picture!
