I never really considered blogging until after Ralph was born. Then, it grew out of necessity. For many weeks after he was born, I wouldn't (couldn't?) deal with talking to anyone. James was my gatekeeper. He spent countless hours on the phone keeping people updated and keeping me protected.

I set up a demo website as an experiment a little later on. When that expired, I moved all the content over to As I started reading and admiring other blogs I realized that I wanted to do more, so I set up Ralph and the Crew.

It has been awhile now and I never moved over my original posts from the early days. Some of you readers/lurkers don't really know what we've gone through at all. So, over the next few days or weeks, depending on how life hits me, I'm going to go back to the beginning. I'm not sure about the best way to do this, but I want to have our story all in one place. So check back soon!
