The Elusive Scully claims the stroller.
She had this look on her face that said,"Am I doing something wrong?"

20 Things

Twenty things that change when you have a baby
By Rebecca Woolf

1. You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.
2. You finally stop to smell the roses, because your baby is in your arms.
3. Where you once believed you were fearless, you now find yourself afraid.
4. You're less self-involved and more self-motivated.
5. The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.
6. You respect your body ... finally. (Hooray for baby-making!)
7. You have stronger opinions and are stronger willed.
8. You respect your parents and love them in a new way. (Hooray for grandparents!)
9. You find that your baby's pain feels much worse than your own.
10. You believe once again in the things you believed in as a child. (Hooray for the tooth fairy!)
11. You lose touch with the people in your life that you should have banished years ago.
12. Your heart breaks much more easily.
13. You think of your baby 234,836,178,976 times a day. In fact, you're so busy with this that you forget everything else.
14. Every day is a surprise.
15. Bodily functions are no longer repulsive. In fact, they please you. (Hooray for poop!)
16. You think before you speak.
17. You become a morning person. (Hooray for watching the sun rise!)
18. If you have a son, you no longer curse men. (Hooray for all men!)
19. If you have a daughter, you hope she won't endure your same heartaches.
20. Your love becomes limitless, a superhuman power

I'm adding #21: You get cornier and weepier.

Thanks Aunt Margaret

for the sweet Giraffe. I'm enjoying playing with all of Ian's toys.

The Sleep Sheep

plays ocean sounds, mother's heartbeat, and whale babble....puts Kyle right into dreamland.


We went to Target today to pick up a few things and spent a few hours taking tags off of baby clothes. Couldn't find the hamper that we wanted (check out that pile of baby things, lucky baby!). The more we "organize" lately, the messier the room looks. But the curtains are up. Woohoo!

Second Cousins Twice Removed, I Think!

Anyway, Ian will be seeing them at family functions, that's for sure!

Sage is going to teach our kid how to be a super-hero.

So all the showers have passed

and with a month left of work and just 7 weeks until the due date, I feel sad! Sad because Ian has been with me, all mine, for so long and then, in a few hours (wishful thinking) he'll be out in the world and exposed to so many different things.
At the same time, I can't wait to see his little face for the first time. And I know his dad can't, either.

The Profile - 8th Month

They don't call it "feeling pregnant" for nothin'.
I am going to miss those cords, though.

Jackson (7) and Luke (4)...and Jerrod, not pictured (14)...all boys!

Who's your daddy?

Beckett loves his Daddy
