revving the engines

A lot has changed since the last time I posted here.  Let's name them in chronological order:

  1. Jenn got a job (which explains the unforgivable lull in Blodoq and Sammy)
  2. Jenn got married (congratulations Mike, this chick is now yours for life)
  3. Jenn got pregnant (congratulations World, you are now host to a mini-Jenn)
  4. Jenn had a beautiful baby girl

Cayla is now 4 months old, and I've finally started to establish a rhythm of sorts; a routine, which should and will include Blodoq and Sammy.  I have 2 months of maternity leave left... I am hoping that's enough to finish at least one more book.

As a new mother to a child who seems a little too young to appreciate books, I want to try and create a book that's simpler and vibrant enough that it might catch her attention.  I've been testing out all kinds of books on Cayla, and she seems to respond best to books with high contrast, large, and bold pictures.  I love reading to her, and can't wait until she loves being read to :)

Let's get these creative juices flowing and see what I can come up with <knuckles cracking here>.
