It's been a good six months. It's been a crazy six months. And it's only about to get crazier when baby bundle to be arrives (ETA late March/early April) . But I hope to return here with much greater frequency, especially after baby enters the world, because I know perfectly well for how fast life has moved recently it's only going to get faster. And it's going to speed up precisely when I will be desperate for it to slow down, for every moment to last just a little bit longer. There's nothing I can really do about that, but I can at least preserve some of those moments here. I can come here with the good, the bad, and the ugly (or more accurately the poop covered). I can, as I always tend to do, turn memories into words and sentences, and in that way make them the closest thing possible to permanent.
