Why I’m Not Blogging Lately

Lil' Genius

I’ve occasionally had blogging slowdowns here but never for as good a reason as the current one. Last month our daughter Lila was born. For the time being, what blogging does occur will be sporadically timed and probably disjointed and written as if composed by an exhausted and loopy individual.

We had a tremendous outpouring of support and congratulations before and after her birth. Our friends and family were generous to the point of embarrassment at the baby showers and in life in general. We are grateful to tears and deeply appreciate everything.

The last few weeks have thrummed to a rhythm not our making. We’re trying to get used to it and figure out how to get life accomplished while dealing with her needs. As time goes on we’ll meet in the middle.

We discussed our internet policy as regards our daughter, and in this instance it is actually a score for the walled gardens. We decided for the time being we don’t want pictures with her face posted to the open internet. We have posted those to Facebook where we can limit the scope to only friends. This is a work in progress, but for now that’s where we stand. If you see in the photo to the right, that is the “lil’ genius” onesie sent by Garrick Van Buren. He made it by snipping out the bomb from the EGC logo, which I find fantastic.

More blogging in the future, when we are able to be both parents and human at the same time. I know it is coming, I just don’t know when.
