i took a little blogging hiatus this past week. my heart just wasn’t in it this week. i was exhausted from yet another night spent in the hospital thanks to my gallbladder. travis’ parents took me and sylvie in for the week. i got a lot of help with sylvie and some much needed rest. travis got some time to focus on his school work. sylvie got a lot of snuggle time with her grammy and poppy. win-win-win. the three of us are back together and back home again.

sylvie turned 10 weeks old yesterday. here is a peek at week 9 in pictures.

on another note: i wasn’t sure if i was even going to bring this up, but here it goes. top baby blogs reset its vote count back to zero a few days ago. let’s be real, TBB is essentially one big popularity contest. really. on the other hand, i have met some amazing women (and their adorable babies) through this community of mommy bloggers. these girls provide me with support and advice as i raise my sweet girl far away from family and friends. i would be remiss if i pretended like their friendship, which would not be possible without top baby blogs, meant nothing to me. that said, if you could please click the following banner to vote for me i would so appreciate it. i have amazing readers. all of your comments mean so much to me. thank you so much!

  1. Hey, welcome back 🙂 No worries- really. I just figured you were busy being a new momma- add to that the gallbladder issues and I would’ve disappeared, too. I hope you’re feeling better now! Have they thought about just removing your gallbladder?
    Looks like Sylvie had a good week. Can’t believe she’s already TEN WEEKS old. Holy moly. Seems like just yesterday I found your blog when you were still pregnant and hardly even showing!
    I agree- TBB (is) just a popularity contest. But, there are some things to be gained from it- friends, advice, and (in my case) raising awareness for my son’s condition. Sooo… I don’t ever plan on being super high on the list, but I do like being part of it. I voted for you!

    • Thanks, Jess. How is little Elliot doing? Will he be able to stay put a little longer? You both are in my thoughts.

      They have thought about removing my gallbladder, but I don’t have health insurance at the moment. It was one of the consequences of becoming a stay at home mom and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Luckily Sylvie has insurance and my pregnancy was covered. Those are the most important things!

  2. You seriously have the cutest little bobkin with the cutest little outfits ever.

    Don’t worry about no blogging for a week. Your little girl and your health is much more important. Glad to hear you have such lovely in-laws.

    • Thanks! She is pretty darn cute.

      Seriously, my in-laws are the greatest. I had such a fun, relaxing time at their place this week.

  3. SO cute! Looks like fun! Saw the cute little hoodie Memaw sent. Where did the Wubbanub disappear to? 🙂 So, I know you say she looks like Travis, but I do see you in her too!

    • We did away with the Wubbanubb for now. She couldn’t keep it in her mouth for more than two seconds and I just about went crazy! She holds onto the regular pacis (she loves MAMs) much better! She likes them better, too!

  4. I’m gonna see you (and sylvie and travis) so soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I’ve mised you! Welcome back. I love the “I’m about to cry” picture (2nd one)…I think babies make the cutest faces when they are crying.

    she is just adorable! Thanks for posting all these pictures

    • Thanks, Dana. I LOVED the pics of Aydan in the pumpkin patch. So sweet. We’re heading to one this week, too!

      I feel bad snapping a picture when she cries, but those faces are so cute. I want to remember the sad faces, too!

  6. It’s so nice that you have family close by to offer their support. Good to hear that you’re all feeling rested 🙂

  7. awww, Sara, she’s so incredibly cute! can’t believe we have been mommies for this long now!
    by the way, I’m so thrilled to see Sylvie in the cutest pjs ever – blue and orange dino from target!!! Oh that thing is amazing, I got one for my sis-in-laws baby!

  8. You have such a cute child! While your blogging absence was noted, I think I speak for us all when I say we’re happy to have you back!

  9. She is incredibly sweet & cute. Those first two pictures had me “aww”-ing. What is it about a sad little lower baby lip that makes me make the same face? She’s adorable.

  10. Hey Sara,
    Can they do your removal laproscopically (spelling?) Mine billed my insurance about 12,000 before adjustments, for the day surgery….several trips to the hospital could easily equal that I would think…might be cheaper in the long run to get it taken out?

  11. Oh wow, so precious! And the pics of your pup are darling 🙂 ❤

    • Thank you! Your pup looks like such a sweetie. My husband and I can’t wait to get a second dog in another year or two.
