It's nice to be back. Here's a quick look at my 2013; hopefully it would explain my absence:
1) October last year, I gave birth to a baby boy we called Elijah.
I got married in September 2011, got pregnant in January 2013. Elijah is 5 months and 2 days today. Where did all the time go?
2) I acquired a pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel syndrome so I refrained from too much typing. I've tried 3 types of braces for wrist support.
Later on I wasn't so sure if the condition was induced by pregnancy swelling or by playing too much Candy Crush and video games while I was pregnant. Maybe both.
3) My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2013.
I am helping her feel better by regularly FaceTiming with her so she could see Elijah, her first grandchild... "An Elijah a day keeps the doctor away".
4) Last year, we moved to Germany after living in Italy for 2 years. It happened in such a short notice.
I delivered at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center 5 days after we got here. Elijah was 37 weeks and 2 days when he was born.
I would like to thank everyone who faithfully followed my blog despite the lack of updates. Thanks to those who messaged me to let me know that I am remembered. To those who asked me how I was doing. All of you made me come back again the soonest I possibly can. It feels good to know that your blog counts. That what you have to say matters.
