Too Fast

I was recently reminded of how long it had been since I blogged, so this is a little update of what’s been going on!

Time is going way too fast. I can’t believe my maternity leave is coming to an end. Teegan just turned four months and he has dramatically changed in the past few weeks. He’s grabbing at everything, kicking up a storm in his baths, and even belly laughing! This is the time when things really start to get fun. Don’t get me wrong- he was a cute newborn- but it’s so exciting to start to see his personality and see his different moods!


Unfortunately he hasn’t really mastered the sleeping through the night thing but I’m hoping he will magically figure it out since I’m going back to work, right??

My sister, niece and my mom recently came out for spring break. It has been spring all winter long here in LA, but it was a big change for them. We had lots of adventures including the LA Zoo (one of my favorite places), Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, the Science Museum at Exposition Park and a beach day in Malibu. It was really fun to see Mila interact with her older cousin.

My leg is better. I still get some pain if I do the elliptical (so I’ve put it on hold for now) but otherwise can pretty much walk as much as I want. I haven’t dared to try running again yet. I think that will be a ways off.

My fasting blood sugars are improved but some of my post meal sugars are still a little high if I’m not really careful about carbohydrates. I’m trying to stay hopeful that things may still improve over time.

My lupus is still more active than baseline but seems to be settling down. I think as time goes on this will keep getting better.

I’ve made a few things but haven’t seemed to get my act together to take pictures of them— so that’s my goal before I go back to work!

And here’s my little family of four….

  1. Hi, Erica – Enjoyed your update and seeing the pics of your precious family!
    It will surely be hard to return to work after being off for so long!
    Continue to get better, keep praying and one day you will kiss (or kick)
    that lupus goodbye!
    Looking forward to pics of your latest creations-
    Roby L.

  2. Lovely post! I agree that 4 months + is a fun age but all of the stages have their ups and downs. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on.
