Continued blogging hiatus...

Yes, it's been a while. And it's going to be a while longer. And there's a perfectly reasonable (and aggravating!) explanation for our blogging hiatus, mostly involving the loss of our computer. The more I read of other people's blogs, the less I feel motivated to contribute to my own. It's funny how some people are hesitant to blog because they aren't married and/or don't have children. Some of my most favorite blogs are Christie's, Bryce's, Mish's, and Sara's, and Amy's and Scott's. While the latter two do have children, their posts are not excessively child-centered and are always full of intelligent, meaningful, and more universal observations and reflections -- you know, things interesting to more than just their children's grandparents. Anyway, I'm not trying to demean child-centered blogs-- mine has always been such a blog. Still, my friends and their families seem to have enough cute stuff going on with their blogs that I just haven't felt I have much to contribute to the blog-viewing world. However, I am ultimately keeping this blog around for my posterity, not just for you, my feeble yet loyal blogging audience, so I will get around to posting about our Disneyland trip last September (and work my way toward the present from there), and perhaps by the time I deliver in June, I will have informed all of you, via blog, that I am pregnant.

Tiff!! Congrats! Finally, I will have a child similar in age to one of yours. However, I completely understand the blogging hiatus. I just don't have much to post sometimes...or more appropriately, the things that happen really aren't blogable. Anyway, I look forward to future posts and hope you are all doing well.

(I just let out a literal gasp at the end of your post!!)

CONGRATULATIONS you guys!!!! YAY!!!

Rhonda said...

Congrats! Very exciting!

AHHHHHH!!!! Hoooray for more babies! I'm so excited for you and I've missed you updating. Can't you just lock the kids in a room for a while and update your blog more often? Or is that bad parenting? It's just so hard to decide sometimes.

What!? Congrats Tiff! I can't believe you knew all this time that we were having babies around the same time and never told me. I'm so excited for you guys. You are super awesome parents. I love reading about your kids (and, the other interesting things you post). That is all my blog/life is about -- kids. People who don't like that will have to go somewhere else, I guess. ;-)

I am so excited for you! Can't wait to see you and the family.

What, you're prego!? Why didn't anyone tell me? Haha, j/k, Ellie spilled the beans to me weeks ago :-)

Tiff, I hear ya about writing a blog for posterity if no one else. I appreciate that you like and read my blog, but I have to admit that I often feel that it is just a tad too self-indulgent or uninteresting to the casual non-Bryce reader, yet I justify its perpetuation for the sake of having a personal history. Still, I really like your guys' blog too - especially when it features your cute kids! (Tiff rolls her eyes and groans, "Bryce, get over it, there's more to life than my cute kids"). Also, any time Kyle speaks or writes, there's a very high probability of it being really funny, and that right there is reason enough to keep blogging.

Also, sorry to hear about your computer :-( Mega sad!

Thanks for all the well wishes, folks. That was definitely the most down-played pregnancy announcement I've ever made, but not because we're not excited about it. Anyway, you are great friends and family. Thanks for that.
