Blogtoberfest!?!

Against my better judgement, I've signed up for Blogtoberfest. This means that I'll be attempting to post daily for the month of October.
The new addition, not yet a week old

You might be wondering why I would do such a thing given our current life circumstances, and part of me is too! However, I'm working on the assumption that it will be a good thing to try to extract my head momentarily each day from the craziness that's involved in adding a new person to the family, even if it's just to take a picture, or to make a (very) short post.

Given that the main focus of this blog is making and not parenting (even though it makes a necessary appearance here occasionally), I'm hoping that you don't get inundated with gratuitous baby shots because I'm besotted (it's true) and can't think of anything else! I'm hoping to snatch a moment here and there to do a row of knitting, or admire the carrots that were planted a couple of weeks ago, or even pull out a dandelion or two! We'll see.

Thanks, Cathy, for hosting Blogtoberfest again this year. I know that through Blogtoberfest last year I connected with a few bloggers who have become firm friends, and hopefully this year there might be a few more!

Ah, you're brave, I wish you luck with getting through the festive month of blogtober! I don't blame you for being besotted *cluck*, I'm sure nobody will mind a squishy bubba shot or eleventy...! ;)

PS, best verification word ever: 'retro'....!

Oh who doesnt love gorgeous baby photos! It will be good too for you to have a little journal of the first few crazy weeks after you bring a new baby home!

Leonie said...

One word or picture counts! Just in case :-) Welcome aboard and as the others have said...baby photos definitely ok!

Selene said...

I understand where you're coming from... but be sure to be kind to yourself and take care.

So it's obvious the Supermum hormones have kicked in??? Just take a nap first!

Awww, my first sighting. She's a peach. Can't wait to meet her! And go blogtober-crazy I say - this is exactly the time you need to feel a wee sense of achievement beyond showering yourself and feeding a bub :)
