Hi, friends.

I figured it was time I stopped by to give y’all a bit of an update as to what has been going on in my life and why I haven’t been able to blog as much as promised (which I desperately miss and crave like chocolate).

Sometimes my personal life blocks my creative life and to say things have been challenging is putting it lightly.

Owen has been going through a few changes as of late. As most of you know, he was born 6 weeks early, and I’m almost 1000% certain he is hitting growth spurts, sleep regressions, and developmental milestones twice: once for his real age and once for his adjusted age.

He has gained over 4+ lbs in a two month span and, after he started sleeping through the night around 12 weeks, he all of a sudden hit a sleep regression and has been waking anywhere between 3 and 16+ times a night because he’s hungry, having growing pains, is teething, or has bad gas.

Yeah, you read that right…16+ times a night!!!

Oy, vey.

Last night was no different. He woke me up every half an hour or so, and I’m thinking it was because he had some sort of teething pain or a stomachache. Either way, I am a zombie today and have been for the past two months hence the reason why I haven’t been able to blog.

Cooking + sleep deprivation do not mix.

Anywho, that’s what has been going on with me, and I really can’t complain about this time too much because I get to spend my days with this little nugget which is an absolute blessing…even if he makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes.

Love and miss y’all, and I’ll be back as soon as I can!

Love y'all!
