Baby Steps

This is what I've been up to lately: 


Today my sweet Naomi Rose is one year old!

Where did the time go? (That is not a rhetorical question. You can answer in the comments. *wink*)

In other happy news, I finished another draft of my China book and am making eyes at my critique partners to see who has time to read it. I'm a little nervous because I have sweat blood over this project and am hoping it doesn't turn out to be a piece of trash.  

Need to remind myself that just like any journey, it's all about baby steps.

On Thursday I have a very special guest post planned, so please come back and read. The amazing Jen Daiker will be visiting from her blog Unedited.  I always love reading about other writers' journeys and I know you'll enjoy Jen's perspective. She has a lot of good news on her blog lately, so if you don't already follow Jen, pop over there and say hi!

  3. Oh, I remember those moments! I miss them. My kid's ready to walk off to college now.

    And yes, baby steps. I've been taking them for over a year now. I swear, nothing teaches patience quite like writing a novel.

  5. What a cutie! I love it when kids are just learning to walk.

    So time? It packed up and moved into the sunny Yellow House down the street. :D That street would be in California, though.

  6. That's so cute! My son will be two in April. I'm still trying to get use to the idea of being a mom, never mind a mom of a two-year-old!

  9. Awwwww! I love every step along the way of both motherhood and writing. It's fun to share them with you, too. :) (Although, the terrible two's and waiting to hear back from editors could shorten themselves up a bit and I wouldn't complain much, as long as we got the time back in other areas! :)

  10. I'm sure your ms is NOT a piece of trash! ha. But, still it's scary to send it out into the world.

    Oh. My. Gosh. I just realized that's how I feel about my two HS Senior boys!!! I am so worried to send them out into the world!! Did I do a good enough job preparing them?!

    YIKES.

    Maybe I should go back and look at pictures of them when they were one. *sigh*

  11. Oh she is adorable! I love those first steps!
    Amy, I'm sure your book will be brilliant, and I can't wait for it to be published.
    Already following Jen, she rocks.

  12. I'm confident Naomi Rose will love the manuscript, especially the crunchy parts.
    Sincerely,
    Former Baby
