I wanted to thank you all for sticking with me as I adjust to motherhood. It certainly hasn’t been easy. Let’s just say that I did not deliver an easy-going baby. More like a stubborn, personality-filled baby who thinks afternoon naps are for the weak and fussing is a must.

We still love him, though. (And those wrinkles!)

Part Four of the birth story is almost done and I can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime, stick with me a little longer. Mr. O and I are spending the week with some of his most favorite ladies — my mom, sister, two aunts and cousin — all in a lovely beach house for a week of chick time. He is one spoiled little boy.

Every house should be on the ocean with a rooftop deck, don’t you think?

Then, we are attempting our first family trip this weekend to Baltimore, where I am a bridesmaid in my beautiful college roommate’s wedding. Remind me to tell you how fun it is to guess at a dress size when you’re four months pregnant. If I had guessed just one size off, my giant mama boobies wouldn’t have fit!

I hope to begin blogging more regularly starting next week, as Owen will be six weeks old and I think we’re in a good swing of things around here. Until then, happy August, all! I miss you!
