it’s early and like an old person I’m up before the sun. why? well we’re sleep training* miss adele and despite my best efforts to convince mr. hutch that it was “his turn” for the third turn in the row, he caught on and i got up. only to of course not be able to fall back asleep. and what have i pondered in my insomnia? thoughts about the blog, and how i should really blog, and it’s been so long since i’ve blogged and did the last six months even count since i didn’t blog about them? so I surrendered to the blog’s pleas to come back (along with my mom’s nagging, love you mom!) and here we are, a random humpday where you will get to wake up to BungalowHutch resurrected. glorious. except i kinda wish i was still sleeping. perhaps mr. hutch can sleep train me when we’re done with adele.
let’s see where have I been? where to start? i think i last blogged about having a baby. yes, that’s correct, i just checked. i really did have a baby and that really is the last thing I blogged about. well after i had a baby, we kept her, and i discovered the world’s best kept secret – maternity leave. oh how i long for maternity leave. i think i’ll have another just so i can go back…
maternity leave for me was like an expensive staycacation with an adorable accessory to show off and buy cute things for. this is where you will hate me and mom’s around the world will scream liar! but alas it’s true. from 0-3 months adele was seriously the. perfect. baby. she never cried, she slept like a rockstar (wait rockstars don’t sleep. she slept like a bear? she slept like something that slept really well, anywhere, and all the time.) she never spit up, she never threw up, we took her EVERYwhere and she didn’t seem to mind, heck the kid really never even pooped! it’s like she wasn’t a real baby, luckily i had blogged about the fact that i had a baby so i knew she was indeed real.
so, for three months, adele and i went out for breakfast and on coffee dates, met friends for lunches and happy hours, got our nails done, went shopping, had visitors come and friends make meals, got showered in gifts, in love, in attention. it was awesome.
then we went broke and i had to go back to work.
anyways – those glory days with the perfect baby and the endless fun, we’re part of the reason the blog died. i was having too much fun to blog, and really, who wants to read about what an easy baby you have and how much fun you’re having. it was hard enough in real life to respond to things like, “oh, you just had a baby!? you must be exhausted…” “yea, those 8.5 hours of sleep were real rough compared to my normal 10, thanks for asking!”
luckily for blogging purposes, adele has since turned into a normal child. she cries and does other baby things and in some ways it feels like it has gone from me toting her around to her toting me around. and now (gasp!) she is almost six months and she is doing crazy stuff like sitting up and rolling like a log and putting EVERYTHING in her mouth, and i feel like man, i should be documenting this shiz!
and so here we are again, the resurrection of the blog and documenting all things bungalowhutch.
in the meantime, here are some (totally random) pics from the glory days:
*i hate the phrase “sleep training.” like she’s a monkey or something. i would much rather think of her as a pony or puppy.
