It's a Girl!!!!

Our little Butterfly has arrived!
Born on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 2:27pm.
Weighing 6 pounds 8 ounces and just over 19 inches long.

Sucking her finger.

Daddy says she's going into the UFC... make sure those hands are up!

Not Gonna Sell it That Way

I always find it kind of funny when I drive by someone on the side of the road with their hood up (ok, that's not the funny part). But that they have some sort of "for sale" sign on the car.

Okay, you're trying to sale the car but you're pulled over with the hood up which obviously means something is wrong with the car - what's the phone number to call you right up and purchase?

Baby Room

We've begun transforming the guest bedroom into the baby room. Here are a few pictures of the process.

The old guest room - not much in it, but it worked when we had company.

Everything cleaned out and taped up. We're using two colors, purple on top and green on bottom. Of course Mr. M did all the painting since I'm not allowed to assist in my "condition". ;-) He did a wonderful job!

Here's the purple on top.

And the green on the bottom.

Tape removed.

Add the border!

Close-up of the border.

Next - assemble the baby bed! :-)

In Memory

After his battle with cancer, Mr. M's dad has finally passed.

Not sure of funeral information yet. Just know we're having it in Houston where dad lived and will spread his ashes out on Gatamora (sp) Bay where he liked to fish all the time.

One Year

Wow! Today is the one year anniversary of my mom's passing. The time has just flown. I was glad though that I mentioned to her that we were trying to concieve. So even though she's not here she knew.

Love ya mom!

Baby Update

Okay, since my first post in many moons is a Debbie Downer how about another one to make up for it? :-)

Reason for my absence? 2 reasons - after working on a computer all day, the last thing I want to do when I get home is get on a computer! :-) 2. Usually I post during my lunch break at work. Most of this time lately has been spent working on baby stuff. You know, registering for all things related to baby. Looking for baby furniture. All that good stuff.

I'm trying to not be one of those people who is constantly "baby this, baby that". I know that truthfully people don't care (especially if they have no children etc). Now if someone asks me - I'll definitely let them know.

Now the one question that I'm for sure really tired of? "Are you having morning sickness?" Okay, I'm officially in my third trimester (eek, time has flown!) Morning sickness, if you have it, is usually in the first trimester. So no, I'm not - and truthfully I didn't. I got lucky. I did get sick a few times in the evenings, but nothing like I know others went through.

Again I know that some really don't care for all the details so here's a few tidbits that I'll share...
  • We're having a girl! Yes, the name has been chosen, actually we kind of knew we were having a girl before we were told so we only had one name picked out.
  • She's an active little girl. Kicking, rolling around, dancing... I don't know. What a very cool feeling.
  • We've started baby classes - makes me second guess this whole baby thing. At least this whole birthing part of it. ;-)
  • Haven't gotten one thing ready yet. Yep, this is freaking me out! Need to change the guest room (which is currently being utilized) into a baby room. Although the theme and furniture has been picked out, just need to purchase and throw it all together.
  • Baby shower is next Friday so will hopefully help out with the last concern.

So there you go, a quick run down of the baby thing.
