Hi, I'm Kristina. And I want to party. Join me, won't you?
[Go here to join up and learn about this insane blog party. Meet other bloggers and even maybe win a prize.]
So, anyway, I'm Kristina, like I said. I'm a mama first and foremost, to the cutest little chub-cheeks ever. Her name is Adelaide. She's almost 3.5 months old (already???) and is the sweetest little piece of person ever! Our lives changed completely once I got pregnant, and I started this blog to document my growing belly. If you go back to the beginning, you can read all the letters I wrote to my child-in-utero, and see pictures of my ever-changing body. Adelaide is wonderful and my days are filled with her drool, smiles, and squeals.
[Adelaide not even two weeks old! I already can't remember her being that small.]
Our Little Lentil is pretty much about her, but sometimes I throw in a little about my husband, Kevin. He's a big guy who looks tough but is really sweet, with a soft spot for the little ladies in his life. That would be me, a foot shorter than him, and Adelaide, a whopping four feet shorter. He builds drums and makes music and tells silly jokes (all the time) and farts a lot. He's also really awesome at making me smile and cooking eggs.
And occasionally I'll talk about me. I'm an elementary art teacher, out on maternity leave until August (oh, I dread August!) so I get to be with Adelaide completely for her first 8 months of life! I love to create, and do so any time I get a chance, in between washing cloth diapers and bouncing a fussy baby. I love the outdoors (so does the little one, and the big one). I have 4 cats. I am vegetarian (the whole family is). I love art and photography and pretty things, including pink skies and polka dots and symmetry.
So that's us, in a nutshell. I can't wait to check out more blogs participating in the Ultimate Blog Party 2011, and hope to make lots of new friends!
