Preparing for Stafford and Stepping Back from Blogging

Cranberry Tea Time: Preparing for Stafford and Stepping Back from Blogging
Stafford, 12 week ultrasound

For the past seven and a half months we have been preparing for Stafford’s arrival. I move pretty slowly, so we need the full nine months to prepare for a new baby in the house. It has been hard for me to keep up with blogging in the midst of all the baby preparations, which is why I have been quieter here lately. Much of my energy has been put toward shopping for baby clothes and other needed baby items, going to doctor’s appointments, rearranging bedrooms to make room for a baby, crocheting for Stafford, and trying to get everything on my to-do list finished before March.

I plan to publish a few more blog posts here at Cranberry Tea Time in the coming weeks. However, once Stafford arrives I will need to step back from blogging for a long time. I will try to write one more time after Stafford is born with a quick update and a few pictures, but otherwise things will be very quiet here on the blog. I will miss all of you, and I thank you in advance for understanding my need to step back from blogging for a while.

After Stafford is born I will be mostly stepping away other activities too, like email, crocheting, and scrapbooking. I won’t do much reading other than my daily Bible reading. I’ve told my friends that I won’t be able to have visitors, but that friends to come over to clean and take care of Stafford and me will be welcomed and needed! I won’t be leaving the house unless it is for a necessary medical appointment. As much of my energy as possible will need to go toward taking care of Stafford.

I haven’t said much here about baby preparations, what that looks like for us, or what lies ahead for us as a family of five. It is all so happy and scary and overwhelming that I haven’t known what to say, so I have been quiet. But in the coming days I hope to write two more blog posts about preparing for Stafford’s arrival – one that shares the fun side of things and one that shares the hard side of things. So check back in soon to find out how I’m doing and how I have been preparing for Stafford’s arrival.
