It's been a long time and SO much has happened

First, four months!?! I'm getting really quite bad at this. I'll try to do better, but we all know that it probably won't last long. At least I have a good excuse now. I'm a Mom! Finally!

Selene Marie was born on May 31st at 1:18pm via emergency C-section. I'll write out her whole birth story in a later blog. Just want to get the info out just now. I have to admit that it's hard to believe that in less than a week she will be two months old already. Then again, there are days when I'm surprised it hasn't been longer. I was told at my baby shower back in April that once Selene (then still Squishie) was born, I wouldn't be able to imagine life without her. Well, when she was first born, that wasn't true, but it sure is now!

Because one of my ultimate goals in life is to be a stay at home mom, Joseph and I have been looking into moving out of our house and most likely into an apartment until we find the perfect home for the perfect amount of money that Joseph will be able to afford on just his salary. Might take us some time, but we're going to make it work and I can hardly wait.

Since we'll hopefully be selling and moving in the next few months, I've been slowly going through all of our belongings and packing up those that we're definitely keeping and piling up those that we're going to sell or give away. It's been a process, let me tell you. I knew we had alot of stuff, but the sheer amount of it gives me a headache some days. At the same time, it is SO hard for me to get rid of some things. Things that I don't use anymore, I just can't bear to see them go just yet. Suppose I'll be packing them up for now and maybe I'll be able to get rid of them when we finally find our next house. *shrug* We'll see.

Anyway, that's all I've got for now. I need to get back to packing up my maternity clothes and going through all my clothes that I packed away throughout my pregnancy so I can find some clothes that fit. No use spending money on clothes if I don't absolutely need to. Talk to ya'll again soon!
