It has been a busy while since I last posted. Our son Rowan was born on August 4th and Ian and I have been adjusting to parenthood and its many joys and challenges. I have been trying to figure out how to get anything done other than soothing a baby. Finally today with a sling I borrowed from my sister in law and the guidance of my friend Jenny I have myself a hands free baby device. It is amazing- I can type, clean, read, knit, or do anything I like. Well, at least while he is asleep. We'll see what happens when he wakes up. I better go ahead and post a few pictures now before he starts a stirring.
