A Couple of Photos...

Hmmm...hard to believe that I got a photo of Little Miss C sleeping since she's been spending loads of time awake during the day. Good for getting rest at night, not so good for letting me play with my camera. Oh well, I'm blessed right now that she is sleeping at night, I'll take what I can get :-)

This one just cracks me up.

I have loads of photos to share once I upload them. Which I guess I could be doing now instead of blogging. Too bad time is up and my family found where I am hiding.

Don't they know I have awesome pumpkin patch photos to edit and post?

I've Been Wanting to Do This....


I started reading Emily's blog ages ago and while the concept of taking more photos with your children isn't new...maybe I just needed a cute button to get me motivated. (I'm sure the 12 weeks off of work won't hurt either) So I can't promise that this is something that I will stick with once I go back to work but at least my kids will have a few extra photos of us together right?


Not to mention that maybe I will improve my ability to take mirror and/or self timer shots. But even though the focus is soft on this photo, it makes me happy to look at it.
And I'm pretty sure that's the most important point.

Wordless Wednesday...

Yes, I know it's Thursday...well kind of. Maternity leave makes all of the days start to run together :-)

My Mother is CRAZY...

Colin was a STAR today at school and needed a special snack. My Mom got up at 6AM to finish cupcake pops. Jeez!

Well at least I got to Hershey this weekend.

Thankfully she didn't ask me to do anything.

Hope you had a relaxing day :-)

A Photo From Last Weekend...


Just to prove that she was there :-)

First Day At Home....

Miss Charlotte is already one week old but has been going non stop since she came home. What can I say? That's how we roll! Or as Colin would say it, "welcome to the family!"

She was born early Thursday morning and we left the hospital Friday afternoon. We then went home and packed to head to Penn State. Only seemed right since her brother spent his first night in State College. We have to be fair right?

We hung out in Matt's parents condo while everyone else went to the game. We did venture to a tailgate at the end of the game to visit with a few friends and spent some time walking downtown. The weather was perfect and she was perfectly content walking around in her sling.

We stayed till Sunday and then came home and have been busy running errands, shopping and having photos taken. Matt went back to work today and this is the first day that I have been home alone with Charlotte. I'll be honest. I'm kind of loving it. We have a few hours till we pick her brother up from school and I'm looking forward to getting a little baking done and possibly some sewing.

Life is good right now, a little crazy with two kids but very, very good.

Thank you for all of the well wishes, our expanding family appreciates them very much!

Wordless Wednesday

Charlotte Rose arrived 10/7/10 at 2:16AM.
Her brother thinks she is so cute he can't even look at the camera. :-)

At 39 Weeks....

Wishing I was in Disney so I could pick up a pack of these...
It's a sickness...I know.

Realizing that maybe it was a little unrealistic to think that I could go into labor on my own...I mean I can't get pregnant without help why would I think labor would be any different???

WALKED my insane son to school this morning. Mostly because I am a sucker and I did say if he got up early enough we could walk. Did I mention that it was raining? Oh and that I had to walk home to get my CAR so I could go to work. Colin was happy as a duck in our development, (yes we have loads of ducks, and goats and sometimes a horse but that's a whole other post) hoping and skipping to school this AM. Yep, I'm a sucker.

Oh and it was about a mile or so and I'm still not in labor. On Sunday I RAN hoping that would get things going, oh and did the elliptical and played football when I got home.

*sigh* I really could be pregnant for awhile longer, I just want to avoid the induction and the IV's and the laying in bed and the whole medical intervention to begin with.

Sad that I will miss Homecoming Weekend at PSU this year. If I had her by today we were still going to go up but I'm thinking that we missed the boat and it's probably a bit irresponsible to go so close to my due date if I haven't had her.

As of today Charlotte's crib sheet is done and her bumper is 98% finished. I just have to add the ties and work on the crib skirt. I think I will finish that tonight. I just need to pick up some additional fabric that we ordered and I will start her Minnie Mouse quilt.

Having another ultrasound today and a non stress test. Hopefully it will be my last one, I've only had like 15 this pregnancy. Seems a bit excessive but at least I know she is doing well in there.

Well, wish me luck and hopefully little miss Charlotte will decide to make her grand entrance sooner rather than later. :-)
