I feel kind of awkward with this blog. I feel like I’m jumping into normal conversation as if I’ve had this blog forever.
See what happened is I am actually leaving my old blog, and beginning a new one where it left off. My last blog was all about my pregnancy with Ava. I had family who I don’t see very often due to distance, so it was primarily a means to keep them informed. The title was Baby Hall’s First Blog and it was all about pregnancy, and then after she was born, it became all about Ava/life with a newborn. Though I failed to post very often. It was a little more difficult keeping up with a blog with a newborn. However, a year later, she is on a fantastic schedule, and bedtime is early enough that I can write when she’s in bed.
That put me at a dilemma with the title. I love writing about Ava, and I still want the primary point of this blog to be about motherhood, but Baby’s First Blog was a bit limiting. So, I came to the decision that I would start fresh. I want to cover a variety of topics, and Good Gravy, Miss Avie allows me to do so. The title is actually a phrase we say frequently around our house, ever since Ava was born. It’s a term of excitement when she does something new and exciting, or a term of disbelief when she makes a huge mess or gets macaroni and cheese smeared in her hair. Overall, it’s a term of endearment, and it just seems proper. It sums up motherhood for me.
So welcome to my “new” blog! If you want to head over to my old site to check out my pregnancy journey, feel free!
P.S. You don’t even want to know how long it took me to decide to do this. The name alone took me about a month, and the basic decision of starting fresh took even longer! But here we are. Despite the awkwardness, I feel pretty good about this.
