To Our Precious, Little Baby Girl...

The hope for this blog is that we get to share with our daughter-to-be, family, and friends what is going on in our lives as we start getting prepared for her BIG DAY and arrival outside of the belly! It'll be a no-holds-barred attempt at our new experiences, challenges, and day-to-day life while our little "bun in the oven" continues to bake. At some point, we hope this will be a loving story for you, little girl, to look back on and hopefully will also be entertaining and educational to read! We love you, little monkey, and are so blessed to have you growing stronger and stronger every day! Love, Mom and Dad

"Don’t Ask What The World Needs. Ask What Makes You Come Alive, And Go Do It. Because What The World Needs Is People Who Have Come Alive."

~Howard Thurman

I am so lucky to be a nanny! I love what I do, and therefor it does not seem like work! Today was a nice day at work (inside, out of the 101 degree weather) with both boys. J and I made "guilt free" brownies from a mix his mom found at Trader Joes where you mix in fat free vanilla yogurt to the mix. J had so much fun helping. J had an awesome day with wonderful manners, no whining, and very good eating. Poor M had a gassy day, and because of such, was not the happiest guy, but he was so cuddly cute! Both boys had overlapping naps-VICTORY! That means another day in the books of being able to do the household tasks quickly without having to carry M along for the ride. K also told me that she will lend us their cradle for when Monkey is born-we're so lucky to have such amazing bosses and friends!!!

Dinner was reheated leftovers. Sorry, nothing impressive. Not a huge day, announcement-wise, but still a great day! Tomorrow is another HOT day (supposedly 100 degrees) and so the plan is to take the boys to take the boys to the park to play with the mom's group before it gets too hot. Wish us luck with that. Also, I need to call our home builder's help line tomorrow to see what kind of coverage/warranty we have on our kitchen wiring/lighting as we have been unable to fix problems in that area.

Short blog, I know. Off to lay in bed with the heating pad on my back and take some medicine to help. I think I'm just getting used to lifting all that my new job entails and hope that this back pain fades quickly enough.

Love bug, Peyton...sleep tight! Mom would also appreciate it if you found another place to push your feet OTHER THAN in her ribs, but she'll take it if that's all you can offer her at the moment. Hugs, big girl!
