A Lil’ Update

Well, y’all I’m going to be out for a couple of days- hanging out with my lovely mom for her birthday! Should be fun!
Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, I’ve just been preoccupied hanging with family and friends. On a good note, Drew is still doing very well with the potty training- we’ve only had a few accidents in the past few weeks, and he almost wont wear pull-ups anymore. (I think getting the Star Wars undies really helped *wink*) So that is a great and good thing, but at the same time, makes me just a little bit sad to realize my baby is growing up. Zoe is also doing very well with her momma, and I think they are all settling in quite nicely. Zoe is flip-flopped and sleeping during the day and awake at night- but as we all know, this shall soon pass.

That’s all for now…catch you on Wednesday!



I apologize to any of you who came to check up on me and discovered an ugly skull picture with a “You’ve been hacked” message… technical difficulties… but we’re back up now! (I think…) I’m still getting the skull picture when I get here, but it goes away when a reload my page…who knows? Well, arggg seems like a fitting thing to say here…

Happy Birthday Zoe!

Look out World, I'm  Awake

Please welcome to the world Miss Zoe Elise, she was born quite quickly this morning at 4:36, weighing in at 7 pounds 1.1 ounce. Ariel was a champ, she handled her labor beautifully. I was able to be there to witness it all. (Thank you, Lord, for my whale.) I’m so so happy as are the rest of us. Thank you all for your prayers.

Hi Folks…

Just For Fun

Sometimes these things are dead wrong, and sometimes they are frighteningly accurate as in the case of this one….
What kind of personality are you?

You Are An ISFJ

The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excell at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person, who you do special things for.

You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

Weekend-y Things

Well, my mom is back at her house, I am just hanging out with Drew, Beau is taking a nap, and Kevin is out running sound for a wedding. I’m not quite an aunt yet, well, at least I still haven’t seen my nieces angelic little face (and neither has anyone else…) So we’re just waiting… I feel for my sister right now, all the memories of waiting for the baby to come those last few days (hopefully not weeks in her case) are coming back. It’s hard not to get antsy and bored and a little depressed. But it will happen. The baby will come out. I was encouraged yesterday when my chiropractor said to me as I was leaving, “Hey, next time I see, you’ll be an aunt!” That’s right, I will!!!

In other news, and I hesitate to even say anything for fear I’ll jinx it (because I sure did last time!) Drew has been doing very well with the potty training. He has now gone three days without an accident wearing “big boy” underwear (in a Star Wars theme, of course!) and has had two dry nights in a row! Yay!!! Really, I was beginning to worry about how I was going to explain to his kindergarten teacher why he was still wearing Pull-ups… (Okay, I know that’s not for a couple more years, but I was really getting discouraged there.)

Also, we are getting a new water heater (boiler) for our home. This may not sound like something to report, but believe me, I’m really looking forward to not having $300 + gas bills this winter! Hallelujah!!

So for now, I’m thinking that it would probably be a good idea to get the groceries taken care of for the next two weeks, (on a Saturday…yes, I must be insane! Somebody stop meeeee!) as well as get the house in order. There is a good possibility I may have to leave in the middle of the night or something like that to go see my new niece be born.
Hope y’all are having a fantastic weekend!
