Cuteness Overdose

30 Sep

Welcome to the World Ashlyn!

23 Sep
On September 19, 2008 at 7:57 p.m. Brian and Sara welcomed their baby girl, Ashlyn, into the world. She weighed in at 6 lbs 15 oz and measured 18 1/2 inches long. She is completely adorable, adorned with dimples courtesy of Grandma. You can’t see them in this picture, but oh boy…Brian is in trouble! Mom, Dad and Baby are doing wonderfully…well…a little tired but otherwise good.
You know…that’s the second live birth I’ve been in on (aside from my own) and it’s just the most amazing thing you’ll ever see. All of the air caught in my throat and a big fat sob came out. It’s just the most beautiful thing watching a person enter the world and take their very first breath of life. It really doesn’t get any more miraculous than that.
We are so excited for this addition to our extended family. Welcome to the world Ashlyn!

Proud Mama

17 Sep

There are certain moments that make me so proud to be Ava’s mommy. A lovely example of a shining moment in our household is when SHE farts. She’ll look at me or Mike, wave her hand in front of her nose and she’ll say one of two things:

  1. “Fart. Pee-woo (instead of pee-eww) Daddy.”
  2. “Fart. Stinky Daddy.”

Who taught her that, you ask? Her proud mama did!

If you are not watching True Blood you need to be. Seriously…within the first 10 minutes I was HOOKED. Hooked to the point where I kind of got irritated that Mike had to pee and pause the show. “Couldn’t he have held it,” I thought. It’s on Sunday’s at 9:00 pm on HBO…you can go to HBO On Demand to get caught up. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!!!! And for all you people out there thinking you wouldn’t be into a vampire show…push it out of your mind…I was cynical and now I’m obsessed.

Nothing Goes to Waste

You know…Ava teaches me quite a bit of interesting things. Recently she taught me that you have to use what you have. Anyone remember the Erma Bombeck email that went around? The email about every day being a special day…not saving your perfume for special occasions? Well, Ava’s kind of like that on a much simpler level. I mean…if you have 3 pacifiers, why only use one?
