After working for a major Seattle newspaper for the last 5 years, I recently left the private sector and became a full time mommy to my darling 6 month old baby boy Oliver.

Back when Ollie and I (and my husband, can't leave him out!) were not getting much sleep, I used to say time felt like it had stopped. On Ollie's 8 week birthday I remember a friend of mine saying "I can't believe he's two months old, he's growing SO FAST!" - WHAT??? To me the last two months felt like TWO YEARS! But, as it was pointed out to me, I hadn't really slept much up to that point so when you're averaging 20 hours of awake time per day time slows way down. Now that Ollie's doing his nights, time has sped back up and is now racing by faster than I can keep up with.

My goal for this blog is to chronicle my adventure into the world of stay-at-home moms, and to help me track Ollie's milestones in case I ever have another one of these bugaboos (can't even imagine - I applaud all you 2+ kid parents!). As someone who's spent a lot of time working in a cubicle, I know how welcome a time sucking blog is, so I will do my best to post often and with plenty of pics!!

Thanks for reading!
