While adding a new member to the family always requires an adjustment period, I’m happy to report things are going well with our new family member.
Talia thinks Liam is hers!
We love how much she loves him. She’s not the only one….
This is Addison. Her mom is one of my BFF’s.
Addison’s brother, Ellison….
Their talented mom, Selena. Selena is a newborn photographer and we were so excited to do pictures of Liam.
So far, this is the only one we have back. She’s so busy with sessions, it will be a few weeks before we see them all. This picture is one of my favorite EVER!
Here Selena was editing AND holding Liam while I used her oven.
So why am I using her oven? Well, she had a session requiring a smash cake. Even though we closed the bakery and are moving next May, I still make her smash cakes. The problem? Our oven caught fire last week.
Thankfully no one was hurt, and it didn’t happen while we were evacuated, but there’s nothing like waking up to the smell of something burning INSIDE your house.
When I woke Bill, he insisted someone was burning toast. Um, there’s no reason we should be smelling someone’s burnt toast in our house. Sure enough, he went into the kitchen and the INSIDE of the oven was bright red. The oven locked itself shut as if it was on a clean cycle, and the only thing Bill could do was unplug the unit.
It took the fine people at GE almost a week to call us back. Our model wasn’t recalled, but they wanted to come look at it anyway. By the time they tried to finally come out, the landlord had replaced the unit. Pretty sure I won’t be buying any GE appliances anytime soon!
As if all this wasn’t enough, Bill and I started the next semester of school and Liam went to his first hockey game.
He basically slept through it all, even when daddy (Bill) was recognized as the Hero of the Game for his service in the USMC.
So proud of him!!!
I feel as though I can really get back to writing and querying over the next few weeks. I’m still tired, but not like I was when I was pregnant with Liam. November is National Novel Writing Month and it’s time for me to put out another novel! I’ll be sure to put together a bit about the idea and share with you over the next few days. Hopefully I can get out 50,000 words again this November, even with a toddler, newborn, school, and everything else!
