He has Arrived!!!!

So I am back to the blog world, after finally having my baby boy. Which I will say up front, has thus far helped to restore a certain amount of brain function to me. Sleepless-ness is still something of a factor, but the level of physical fatigue has mostly abated. For which I am entirely grateful.
Heard of the pregnancy fog? Well I had it bad for the whole last three months.
I lamented more than once to my husband and friends that I was worried they would no longer find me a good companion since I was barely able to make intelligible comments in response to their conversation. More than once I would have to stop mid sentence because I had completely forgot what I was going to say. Embarrassing?
So what did I do in the last few months instead of blogging?
I watched British classical period romances like Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Daniel Deronda, Wives and Daughters....just to name a few. Some I watched multiple times.
I know.
Something in those British feeds me though, their wit, their romance, their dry humor, their silly way of saying a lot without saying what they are really trying to say.
To feed my thirst for period romances, I even went so far as to sign up for a free trial of Netflix for my last month of pregnancy.....with absolutely no intention of keeping my membership. Gasp. I'm sure Netflix knows that people like me exist, and are secretly hoping I forget to cancel my membership in time so they can at least reap one months worth of dues out of me. Alas, that hope failed with me. Knowing my own disposition to forget such details, I wrote down the day to cancel in my day planner and thus got away without paying a dime.

That is not what I got on here to write about. My mind may have partially returned so I can form complete thoughts, but it still is a rambling sort of business for me to tell a story.
My boy has arrived.
Keith Wesley arrived June 27th at 4:20am, and he is beautiful. For all those people out there who aren't on facebook, but would be on my blog....
Hahahaha, I'm not sure there are people that fit that description who actually exist, but anyhow.
Here he is, the same photo I used on my birth announcement project for him.... from You will see my previous post with a link to my birth announcement project. I got 10 of those announcements practically for free with a promo from Pampers.
Wow, a lot of name dropping from me today. Netflix, Shutterfly, and Pampers all in one post.
Without further ado though, here is:
My boy.
