What happens when...

What happens when two night owls fall in love and make a little morning person?...

This picture was taken at 6:30am this morning. I think Raymond is thinking "Why Me?"

I got it!

Well, it's been 7 1/2 years (with a two year break in the middle), but I finally achieved my goal: I got Anrold Schwarzenegger's autograph... On my diploma that is! Yeah! I finally received my diploma in the mail today, and it feels so great to have that little piece of paper. I now officially have a BA degree in psychology. Wonder if I'll ever use all that training. I certainly use a lot of what I learned as I parent, so it is coming in handy for something!

We also received our new baby gift in the mail from Nana and Papa today: A new digital camera! It is very cool, and it works great! Ours died this last month--not something you want to be without when you are about to welcome a new baby into the family! Well, now that the camera has arrived we have everything we need for this baby to be born. Thanks Papa and Nana! We really appreciate it! Here are a couple test photos we took today:

Here's a picture of our big boy being silly

And here's one of my diploma autographed by Arnie

Charlie and I are a sorry sight. We both have a cough and a cold. Poor Charlie, has a fever that comes and goes, and to top it off is cutting a molar! Poor me, my big, huge belly is aching so badly with all the coughing I've been doing. Ugh. Now we are just hoping Ray's immune system of steel can fend off this nasty little virus. Pray for us when you think of it. This just wasn't a great week to be sick. We had to cancel a couple appointments for Charlie (just yearly check-up stuff). I was planning on organizing our spare room this week. Our midwives are making a home visit Friday night, and I was hoping to get some things in order for their visit. I am being given a Baby Shower this Sunday--the first time I will be able to make it, as I went in to labor on the day of Charlie's Baby Shower. Anyway, as you can see I would like to be feeling better soon! (And so would Charlie, he has been acting pretty pathetic, poor little man).

35 days and counting

Only 35 days until our official due date of March 15th. I am getting really excited (and even a little impatient) to meet this new little fellow. I am 35 weeks pregnant today, and I am starting to feel tired and big. I am having a hard time keeping up with Charlie!

I've been talking to Charlie a lot about having a baby brother. At this point I think he just thinks belly buttons are called "baby." I don't know that he really understands what is going to happen, but I think he knows something is afoot.

We have a sweet little name for this baby boy that we came up with when Charlie was just a few months old. We were just hanging around with some friends when this name came up, and Ray looked over me and said "what do you think about ________?" I said "I like it!" So there you go! A middle name is yet to be set. I think we will have to meet him before settling on his middle name.

The Ultimate Roadie Part 2

A very tired "roadie." Yes, that is a tamborine in his hand. Don't ask me how a person falls asleep while playing the tamborine, but that's really what happened!
