Hello! Before you click out of here because you think you've stumbled on the wrong blog, wait! It's still me (us). For a while, I've been toying with the idea of changing the blog's previous title, And Baby Makes Four. It wasn't the most original name (I was like 8 months pregnant when I started the blog, okay!?), and "four" isn't exactly entirely accurate anyway. Sure, Carl, Lily, Hudson (our beloved Lab) and I make four, but Carl's son and Lily's brother, Ryland, is very much a part of our family even though he doesn't live in San Antonio with us.
In reality, we're five, and hopefully one day in the future, we will be six, and maybe seven, and so on.
As for the "modern-day love story" tagline, well, ours is very much a non-traditional journey. You can read more here, but in a nutshell: Carl and I were engaged in April 2010, and discovered we were expecting in October of that year. Fast forward to today, and we're both doing our very best to manage work, grad/law school, our young family, and planning our future (wedding included).
So, Letters to Lily just seems to fit better. This is, afterall, my modern-day baby book and valentine to our baby girl. With a new name, I decided, should come a new look. And so, here it is. I'll be tweaking over the next few days/weeks and adding more content, plus a belated 9-month update for my sweet little namesake. And one day, I will redirect our URL to make it match our new name. One thing at a time, ya'll :)
For now, I'm just easing into the change. I think I like it. I hope you do, too.
