1: I had a baby! Holy moly, I still can't believe it myself! Her name is Matilda (or Millie as we like to call her) and is just about the cutest little thing I've ever seen. Here she is:
She was born December 28th which means that she is almost a month old. Tomorrow actually marks four weeks since she was born. These past four weeks have been the fastest of my life. In a way, it feels like Millie was just born while at the same time, feels like we've found our rhythm and have been going at this whole "we have a baby" thing for a long time. While I miss having my freedom to run a few errends, stay up until 3am watching Netflix, or sleep in uninterrupted until 11am, I wouldn't change having this sweet little girl in my life for anything. I am sure there will be many more posts about our little one in the future!
2: We bought a house! We moved into our house in the middle of October. The house is older, built in 1950 and in great shape for it's age. It even includes an authentic (and totally creepy) fallout shelter in the basement! Since moving in, we have slowly been hard at work changing things and making them our own. I hope to post pictures and updates on some of the work we've been doing.
3: I made some pretty awesome (if I may say so!) Dr Seuss cake pops in November for our nephew's first birthday party. I'll post about them soon!
4: Speaking of baking, I've made three batches of cookies since Millie's been born. That's almost as much baking as I did the entire time I was pregnant. Pathetic. That being said, I felt like superwoman having the energy to bake while caring for a newborn. Hopefully, more baking will follow soon. I have a lot of recipes I've been wanting to try.
5: I think I need a new blog name as I know this blog will now include ramblings about being a new mom, babies, our house updates, as well as whatever baking I am able to do. So, does anybody have any suggestions?!
