oh yeah...the winner :)

*Finally* remembered to check and see who the best guesstimator was in the baby pool. Wouldn't you know it was Miss Mel who inspired me to do the whole thing? We had 3 people guess the 16th (Sue and Kristina had the right date too!) but Mel was off by less than 2 hours.

And, can't post without sharing a couple of photos, right?

Enjoy your weekend! We certainly are :)


terribly smitten...

we are so in love with this little girl...sigh.

Thank you so much for all the emails and well-wishes!

Izzy and I are doing well (by far my best, best labor and delivery - I'm tired, of course, but I feel terrific!) We came home on Thursday but I haven't been taking a lot of photos and she's been back to the hospital for bloodwork every day. Today was the last day though and we're looking forward to settling in and establishing a little normalcy. Daddy and big brothers are in love as am I. Thank you for all the well wishes!!


39 + 2 weeks

I call this series..."Blue Moon"

Taken at 7 am this morning :)

(and yes, those are my most favorite maternity pants EVER)


remember being 9 months pregnant...

and having to bow out your legs and stand on your tip toes to pick stuff up off the floor? Yeah, I've been there for awhile but it was just the other today that I realized how ridiculous I must look. I'm walking like a drunk duck...39 weeks and 1 day today. I should try to squeeze in one more photo as I'm assuming it won't be too much longer (11 days at the most, right?)

Obviously, there's still time to enter the baby pool for a chance to win a bunch of goodies! We hit the first guess Saturday and our second today and knowing my babies, even if my water broke this instant, there's no way she'd show up at any point before midnight (sorry, Lisa and Jennifer!) I did have strong regular contractions for a full 24 hours last Saturday. I went to the hospital, they monitored me, sent me home with the promise that I'd be back at some point later that day to have this baby. Now, NINE DAYS later, not a sign of her. Carlos claims she's showing us who is boss already, I'm confident that that's true. For him :)

Not much else to update at this point. A few finished knit projects to share (this is the blanket, dress and pants I talked about before.) You can see them in my flickr account that I just use for knitting stuff.

Oh, and just a couple of links (because what kind of post would it be without them?
  • this crib set is *absolutely* perfect. Exactly what I want. But $60 for a SHEET? I don't think so :p I'll keep looking :)
  • this site is very cool. Great "practice" if you want to bone up on your journaling skills!
  • I can't wait until someone else has a baby so I can do my own version of this. What a cool and fun idea!
OK, back to work. Have a great week!
