So it appears that I have taken a four month vacation from all my usual activities (blogging, creating things, etc!) in favor of spending my days focusing on getting to know Luna. It was pretty easy to take that break because she has proven herself to be more of a high needs baby! I've heard of some babies that would just "hang out" on a blanket or in their swings, take lots of long naps, etc. Not this baby!!! For the first month and a half at least, she rarely had any happy or calm awake time. She was sleeping, eating, or crying. That was exhausting, paired with c-section recovery, I was a total zombie. I didn't know how long it would take for me to get to even do normal things like make myself lunch, let alone do something like write a blog post!
Not until she turned around three months did she become a happier baby and would sit in her swing for 15 minutes so I could make a sandwich and eat it. Still no time to run a business in those days. But the thing is, I feel okay about reprioritizing. I know some people work from home and take care of their babies and I'm not really sure how they divide their time and how they prioritize, but I like to put 100% into what I do. Only being able to spend small chunks of time working on a business (20 min here, and hour there) would NOT sit well with me. I know I would be making more mistakes with all the distractions. So I'm not officially "getting back to work" at all. I DO have a collaboration in progress (which is really cool!) but the product will be sold through the shop of my collaboration partner. I still get to do some creative work but the pressure is off to have a fully stocked shop and constant emailing and post office runs.
I have more energy now than I did, now that Luna is a happier baby. Which means the urge to have creative outlets is finally returning! So here I am. Back to my cozy space on the internet. Maybe I'll talk about projects I'm working on, about Luna's development, about motherhood, about things I've learned so far. What do you want to read about? I'm open to inspiration and I'm happy to be back to doing things that make me feel like myself!
