goodbye...for now.

some may have noticed it's been a couple weeks since i last made a post. the reason would new baby girl.

she's 4 weeks old today.

she's a total doll, and i love her more than words can even express. she has changed our lives in so many ways, already.

but the truth is, her needs are too great at this time. i can do little more than meet her needs. basically, my days are devoted almost completely to her and are spent as follows: browsing the internet with one hand, watching tv, and reading whilst poppy sleeps on my chest. i can do little else.

poppy is a super cuddly babe, a total sweetheart, but she's one of those babies who cannot, and will not be put down. not for long, anyway.

while i savor these tender moments with my little flower, i must admit that i envy the mommies (and daddies) who can put their babies down for a split second to attend to their own needs, that have babies who can soothe themselves and sleep some by themselves. we do not have one of these babies. it's just the way it is. it is life. it's her way.

pete and i know that this closeness is just what our special baby needs...and so, we're making do, giving her what she desires right now. it's what has to be done, so we're doing it. even if it's challenging for us.

many, if not all of my interests, hobbies, and activities have had to take a backseat. for the time being.

and honestly:

i can count the number of times i've left my house in the past month on two hands.

sleep isn't what it used to be, to say the least.

i barely get dressed everyday, and i don't bother with the makeup anymore. nothing really fits quite right for now, anyway, and on top of that, it has to be nursing friendly. not much is, sadly! what is style? heh. i'm in fashion purgatory at the momento.

also, i sometimes forget when i last went to the loo.

how glamourous, right?! :)


all that to say:

many, if not all of my interests, hobbies, and activities have had to take a backseat. for the time being.

fashion and creative endeavors (i.e., making stuff) are things i love, but they are of the lowest priority for me at the moment.

and blogging...sad to say, is low on said priority list right now. i wish i could say otherwise! there's so much i want to talk about and discuss with you, so much i aching to write, but i don't have the time or the energy to do anything of the sort right now.

and i don't really know when i will have the time or energy for such things again. i can't make any promises to myself, much less to others. i'm just not sure what the future holds. i just have to take it day by day and spend time with my girl.

so, for now, until further notice, this blog is officially on a hiatus.

i will probably be back, but as to exactly when, i cannot say.

it's all for the love and needs of my little girl.
