Okay, so I’m officially going to stop apologizing for my lack of recent posts…
The weeks leading up to my due date have been some of the most hectic I’ve ever known.
We’ve been tackling some all-consuming projects around here;
Each of which has been against the enormous “due date clock” that’s been ticking constantly inside my head.
(That was me at 38 weeks – smiling through the stress)
I’ve been vigorously trying to get client projects squared away before taking some time off,
Working toward completing the nursery when I could find a spare moment or two,
And taking on a last-minute rehab of our lower level to make room for a new employee.
So I hope you can understand why stopping to blog about all of it hasn’t been at the top of my “to-do” list.
Nonetheless, I really love getting the chance to write about things we’ve been working on,
Highlighting the creative victories…
And relishing in beautiful design.
Today’s post has me bragging about one project I’ve been working on for almost a year.
It’s the proudest I’ve been of ANYTHING I’ve ever been part of creating;
And I’m totally and completely in love with the results.
Meet our newest addition to the Kipling Household.
Emmeline (Emme) Simmons
Born Sunday, January 15th at 2:29pm.
7lbs 11oz and 20.5 inches long.
She’s wonderful, and amazing, and pretty darn content most of the time…
(Even when I’m fumbling to get her dressed for what feels like a full 45 minutes).
We are thrilled she’s finally here, the anticipation was eating away at us.
And there was never a greater surprise in my life than hearing my husband announce “It’s a girl” in the delivery room…
(After months of being told how sure people were I was carrying a boy).
And then there was all that speculation surrounding the BLUE crib…
What’s best is all the hard work we put in before Emme’s arrival makes me feel like I can finally relax,
And enjoy this thing called “Life” that’s happening to our little family.
My heart is filled with love.
My nights are filled with quiet moments with my girl.
And I’ve never felt more blessed.
While I’ve got quite a demanding new client on my hands now,
She takes several naps a day.
And I’m hopeful that means I can sneak off occasionally, and post more often.
There’s so much we need to catch up on!
So Till Tomorrow, Happy
