My first few months back at work

– Hi everyone! Somehow the summer has come and is almost gone! I cannot believe that it went so fast. You may have noticed I haven't provided an update in a while, and I have a pretty good excuse for that: Chris and I welcomed our second son in December. He is awesome!

– Well, I heard plenty of people say it, but I can officially confirm that time seems to go faster when you have a kid! I can’t believe it has already been nearly a year since my last blog post, when I had just returned to work from maternity leave.
