It seems like my going rate is updating my blog every month.

I have a two month old. Are you serious? The really cool thing is, Dan and I haven't even messed her up to much yet.

Life is great. Truly. Julia is huge and short. 10 lbs 8 oz and 21 3/4 inches long. I still adore her though. She's pretty content - ALWAYS and the cutest thing is, she's just learned to pout.

I've been super busy. I picked up a nanny job watching a little girl (Zoe) who is just three days older than Julia (people always say, "that's a lot like having twins...) It is and I enjoy it but, I've decided one kid at a time is probably the most sane way for me to have children (how do you manage, Ana?)

I feel like I have adjusted well with managing my time (besides neglecting my blog) to the whole parenting thing... I'm excited to get back into the swing of school too. I did manage to pull and "A" out of my one class I took last semester but, I am still pleased. So far -- so good.

Oh one thing that kind of stinks is living in Charlotte. I've realized more so now how much nicer it would be to live close to family or friends that we knew well. We WILL move back.... I love Raleigh.

why don't you ever tell us when you come into town. we would have invited you but we never know when you are here, i would have come to see julia again. are you just trying to keep that cute baby all to yourself!?
