{ Evangeline Odete......the reason I've been missing from the blog }

Hello friends!

I am currently in San Diego, California, and have been for the past two weeks.

I had mentioned it in passing, a few weeks ago, but wanted to come in and show you the reason why there have been no Happy Homemaker Monday posts, or any posts in general.

It's been a whirlwind around here, from our arrival, to my niece's labor and the arrival of little Miss Eva, my great niece who is absolutely gorgeous.

I've taken numerous photos already and still plan on taking a few more before we leave on Friday, but just wanted to come in and say a quick hi to let you know that I haven't completely disappeared from the blog, just haven't been able to get on and do anything.

Honestly, I thought that I would have been able to blog daily from San Diego, but the baby has kept us extremely busy and between me, my niece, her mom and dad and brother, and baby's daddy, we've taken turns taking care of the little one.

My last baby was 15 years ago, and it's easy to forget just how busy you are the first few days with a newborn.

Anyway, I really wanted to show you beautiful Eva, so here she is.  She was born on July 2nd, at 5:03pm, weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces, and was 21.2 inches long.
