Those of you who have followed this blog faithfully from the beginning, let me say thank you. This next bit of news might come as a surprise to you. Reading those early blog entries, the barely coherent, clearly sleep deprived ones, you might have thought it was a sure bet that Kimberly and Michael would not dare to venture down that newborn path again. But that is just where we find ourselves. Sprout 2.0 is due in mid August.
I am not looking forward to having another newborn in the house. They are precious, but also demanding and defy all logic. But I am looking forward to having a baby and not being as unbelievably stupid as I was the first time around. Please God, let me not be so stupid. There will be the challenge of having both a three year old and a newborn in the house, and all I can say to that is if life has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that sanity is often overrated.
There are other changes afoot in our little corner of the blogosphere. I will continue to blog here about Sprout, parenting, pregnancy, and our lives in general, but I have created another blog as well, one where I’ll talk about other things that tickle my fancy: books, politics, writing, current events, whatever. More news on that will be forthcoming. I invite yall to drop in there from time to time. I hope to do some product reviews, book reviews, and have some guest bloggers for your enjoyment. I’m very excited by the new blog, if for no other reason than it’s something new and shiny, and I do love new and shiny. I’ll surely be posting some parenting entries there, and I’ll likely cross post those here as well, but it will in no way be just a duplicate blog. The new space will be more me, less baby. As there will soon be two of the latter, I feel I need something to hold onto for myself, lest I get lost in the piles of toys and diapers.
So there are big changes for all of us these days. It has been an honor and a joy to me that so many readers have followed us on our journey this far. I hope you’ll continue to follow and offer encouragement and advice as we travel down this new path.
