1 month old!

look at me - two posts within a week! no worries, I'm sure this will all end when I start working again.

here's a shot of finley at 1 month. if you are on facebook, you've probably already seen it.
and here are my 3 favorite human beings ever. :)
and this shot I grabbed of jack - peeking at me through the back of the stroller. he's such a doll. :)
maybe one of these days I will learn how to make my blogs look cool, but for now, this is what you get. :)
if anyone is even reading this...

i'm back...again

i'm so bad at this - my pregnancy ticker says I'm 34 weeks & 3 days pregnant - ouch!
not much time now, but for those of you who actually check this, and haven't seen on facebook, we had finley on april 9. she was 8 lb 9 oz & 21 inches long. and I did it drug free - yay me!
here is a photo from her newborn shoot, at 5 days old, although she just turned 1 month yesterday. :)

I'm back!!

oh my! I'm such a bad blogger, I couldn't even get into my account because I didn't have the correct email address with the correct password! it took me 10 minutes at least!
anyway, guess I need to get a new lilypie ticker going. :)
no pics to post - we got a new camera that we haven't figured out how to upload our photos yet.

I can't wait for life to slow down... or at least for some days off!!

orlando visit

a few photos from our trip to orlando a week ago to see our new nephew donovan.
he's SUCH a cutie!! and a really good baby.
donovan & jack in their car seats. jack doesn't use an infant car seat anymore at home, we just took that one since it's easier to travel with.

blogging from seattle

woo hoo! go me! blogging from seattle. although, I have no photos to post, so that will have to wait.
but we are having a good time, jack is doing really well - except that he's on a pooping spree & we purchased a generic brand of diapers when we got here so we have had a few leaks. no worries - I got some huggies yesterday. phew!
heading to do a little shopping today - our last day here.
we did some sightseeing stuff monday, yesterday we took the ferry to bainbridge island, so today is shopping! and I'm not usually much of a shopper, but there are some nice stores around here (and they're all close) that I don't normally get to go to - i.e. lululemon!! wonder if I should mosey into gucci... ;)
I'm a little bummed - we were going to head to a town called woodinville to tour the red hook brewery & two wineries. we found out last night that the cab ride would be atrocious & if we rented a town car, it would cost $55-60 ONE WAY. so we decided to nix that trip. :( guess we'll save the brewery & winery tours for a different trip.
that's all for now - will post pics later!

morning poop

sooo, yeah. I finally have time to blog. and I get to report what I woke up to this morning. as most of my blogging friends are already moms, you've probably been through this before, but it was a first for ben & I.
poop! poop everywhere!
I thought I was being spoiled when it was 7:30 and jack still wasn't up yet. then we hear him so both ben & I go in - poop everywhere. poop coming out of his diapers & jammie pants. poop smushed into the sheets. poop wiped on the crib padding. poop wiped all over the rail. I picked him up and noticed it was all over his hands. for some stupid reason I kissed his cheek & realized I had just kissed poop. it was all over one cheek, one ear & in his hair.
so needless to say, we went straight to the bathtub this morning. and NOW I can say everyone & everything is cleaned up and poop free. but that sure was fun.
I'm just thankful ben didn't encounter that yesterday morning when I was already at work. I'm also thankful he can be a little late to work to stay and help me.
I'm really not that grossed out- I deal with poopy animals all the time. it's just that they're not pooping on pottery barn kids crib sheets/padding!!
I know, I know, welcome to parenthood. :)
