i took a little blogging hiatus this past week. my heart just wasn't in it this week. i was exhausted from yet another night spent in the hospital thanks to my gallbladder. travis' parents took me and sylvie in for the week. i got a lot of help with sylvie and some much needed rest. travis got some time to focus on his school work. sylvie got a lot of snuggle time with her grammy and poppy. win-win-win. the three of us are back together and back home again. sylvie turned 10 weeks old yesterday. here is a peek at week 9 in pictures. on another note: i wasn't sure if i was even going to bring this up, but here it goes. top baby blogs reset its vote count back to zero a few days ago. let's be real, TBB is essentially one big popularity contest. really. on the other hand, i have met some amazing women (and their adorable babies) through this community of mommy bloggers. these girls provide me with support and advice as i raise my sweet girl far away from family and friends. i would be remiss if i pretended like their friendship, which would not be possible without top baby blogs, meant nothing to me. that said, if you could please click the following banner to vote for me i would so appreciate it. i have amazing readers. all of your comments mean so much to me. thank you so much!
