Hey, I'm back!

Ah, blogging. That doesn't happen nearly often enough these days, especially to keep my far-off-in-the-Midwest family updated. To be honest, I've noticed that I'm not the only one to fall off the blogging bandwagon. Many of my favorite blogs are rarely updated anymore. I wonder if in part that is due to changing lives, or perhaps even more to the convenience of faster social media. Why blog when it takes 30 seconds to Tweet? Instagram? Facebook? But there is a depth that can't be found in those other outlets, and while they are fun, I miss that slower pace of life sometimes.

Life is anything but slow these days. Or at least, William is anything but slow. At 8.5 months, he's learned to crawl like a maniac and pull up on everything in sight. He's curious, adventurous and fearless. He's intense: intensely happy, intensely sad, intensely attached to me, intensely independent...he doesn't do anything half way. I absolutely love spending every day with him and feel so privileged to do so!
