So, I have been reading blogs for years. Mostly blogs of moms, dads, and families. Many of whom I know personally, and some I do not. I never really had a desire to start my own blog. But that all changed 7 weeks and 2 days ago.
On that day, I gave birth to my first born son, Ryan. He was born on January 7th weighing 7lbs 9 oz and measuring 21 1/2 inches long. He has entered our (my and my husband Matt's) world and enriched it, made it more challenging, more interesting (although, at times more boring), and definitely filled with more love. Since then, I have had a desire to document life. Mainly for him (and my future children), but also for me. I have tried keeping a traditional paper and pen journal, and have not stuck with it. For some reason I am hopeful that I will feel more of a responsibility to actually write something when I know other people can see it.
So, here goes....
P.S. Feel free to post a comment if you've actually read this. That way I will know people are reading and thus feel more pressure, er, I mean desire, to post.
