long time no post!

surprise, surprise — it’s a bit harder than it used to be to find time to blog!  nate sleeps less during the day than he used to, but he is not yet old enough to entertain himself for very long.  right now he’s in his little vibrating chair, and it looks like he’s on the verge of getting tired of it.

on workdays, i get home around 8pm and i’m exhausted.  on non-workdays, i only have time if d isn’t working.  and even then, there is plenty of other stuff to do!

i put up some new flickr pics — for those who got my snapfish link though, they’re the same.  but to give everyone an idea of why blogging just doesn’t hold my attention the way it used to, here’s heaven in my home:

d and i decided on dates for my fmla time.  i’m so bitter about the whole thing – the time is unpaid, i will be billed for my benefits, i can’t even take the time until i’ve been at my job a year – but i am mostly excited.  i am taking 8 of the 12 weeks i’m entitled to, but we’re going to make the most of it.  all of july and august!


  1. That is the cutest picture!

  2. Good for you taking the fmla time. Really. It is worth it.

  3. I love this picture – how incredibly precious!

    Oh, and good for you for taking the time off from work. The fmla situation really isn’t fair, but the memories you create will be well worth the immediate aggravation…

  4. awesome, kira. you will be with nate full-time (!!!) during another amazing time in his (and your) life. taking the time is definitely worth it – which i know you know – even though the pay and benefits situation is completely terrible. good for you. :)

  5. and i LOVE that photo!

  6. That is the cutest baby/dog picture I’ve ever seen!
