The Newest Member of the Simple Seasonal Team – While you’ve been preparing for the holidays, we’ve been busy on-boarding a new taste-tester-in-training at the offices of Simple Seasonal!
While much of the food blogging world has been busily cooking up tasty holiday posts for their readers, over at Simple Seasonal we’ve been busily babymooning. That is, with the exception of a recipe for Monkey Bread and Copycat Cinnabon Frosting… After all, a sleep-deprived mama has got to have some Christmas sugar and spice! This holiday season we’ve been enjoying the gift of an adorable baby boy. And, perhaps, boys are all snips and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails, but if that be the case I’ll take my snuggly and anything but snippy little puppy with a side of monkey bread any day!
So onto the stats…
James Arthur Hanawalt arrived a couple of weeks ahead of schedule on November 1st because of a nasty thing called preeclampsia. Fortunately, crisis was averted and he was born perfectly healthy and no harm came to Mommy. He was born at 1:45 PM, weighed 7 lb. 8 oz. and measured 19 inches long.
Since his arrival, as a family we’ve focused our time on being inside and as cozy as possible as we get to know this little person. Of course Mom and Dad are smitten, but our five year old, David, has become one of James’ biggest fans as well. We hope that you will join in our joy with this new addition!
For our regular readers who have been wondering where we’ve been the past few weeks, that’s just that. Everyone has to eventually come back from a babymoon, however, and Dan and I are excited as ever to continue growing and expanding Simple Seasonal. Although our post frequency may be decreased a bit over the next few months, we’re not going anywhere. We love bringing you delicious recipes. Thank you for your continued readership!
