It seems that I'm on track to miss my goal of fifty-two posts once again this year. To date, not counting this entry, I can only boast of seventeen for 2013. I started out posting on a fairly regular schedule but then real life took over (in a big way) and I had to put my hobbies on hold. You see, I had that proverbial life-changing event take place and my world was turned upside down. What was so momentous you may ask? Well, back in mid April, my future gaming buddy was born! After over seventeen hours of refusing to come out (poor Mommy), my little boy Cameron came into this world.

To say that my life has changed would be a huge understatement. My free time has all but vanished and sleep has become a luxury. What little painting and hobby work I have completed has all been accomplished during the rare quiet time when the little guy is sleeping (not often). I'm certainly not complaining though. He is an absolute joy and just seeing him brings a smile to my face. I've always heard that once you see your son/daughter for the first time that you instantly fall head over heels in love. I can now say with absolute certainty, that is definitely the case.
Over three months have gone by since my little family increased by one. Though he still keeps me quite busy (and happily so), the chaos of being a new father has gradually subsided. We are starting to develop a bit of a routine and as his sleep pattern gets longer each night, I now find myself with a little more free time. I've actually started a few new projects and hope to post my progress soon. So please dear readers, don't delete me due to lack of activity. This blog is not dead yet!
Thanks for reading!
