A Baby Iz Here

...yes, you read that right!

Hi, it's DD, and I'm here because Cat has bestowed upon me the great honor of announcing to her faithful readers that she and Joe welcomed Maggie's baby brother, William Joseph into this world at 12:14 this afternoon. He was a tiny baby... just 8 flippin' pounds and 14 ounces! and a respectful 20.5 inches long.

I am assuming that William arrived with all the acutraments that little boys have, including 10 beautiful fingers and 10 wiggley toes. She said she would try to call later, so if the news is any different and I have to somehow edit this message to note that he has more or less than the 21 appendages, I will try to do so tactfully.

Congrats, Cat! Long distance kisses and hugs from us to you!

No news

No news

Went to the Dr. last night, she said she would induce me on Monday.  YAY right???
Wrong. She called me this morning to tell me that there are already 3 inductions scheduled for the 24th.  She put my name in the computer for Thursday the 27th.  

I will be going out on “Maternity Leave” Monday the 24th.  

The lovely and talented DD has graciously agreed to “Ghost-Post” for me when I have any news to report.

Morning Music??

Have you ever woke up in the morning with a song running through your head????

Yesterday I awoke to Carly Simon’s “Haven’t Got Time for the Pain” I was humming it all day.  I wasn’t in any kind of pain either…..I don’t even particularly like that song.  Who the hell has TIME for pain??  

Today was the melodious tones of Elton John lamenting about Little Jeannie.  I wouldn’t change the radio station if that song came on but WTF????

I don’t sleep with the radio on; I don’t have the alarm set to music….

Weird huh??

You gotta pick your battles

I generally like Maggie to wear clothes to daycare. Something that matches.
Some days that just doesn't happen. Some mornings she just. wins.

At least she has pink sneakers to match.

Beach Girls No More

I have been asked (read: begged, cajoled and bullied) by family and friends to NOT go to the beach anymore until after the baby is born. I guess I can see their point that I don't want to be 100 miles away and go into labor. I wouldn't want to give birth in the backseat of a Hyundai Accent on I-95. So this weekend was the last time that Maggie & I will go to the beach as "just us girls". Here are a few shots to commemorate our trip.

I can be a little creative when I have to be...... She however, would NOT stop moving and kept cracking the "bodice" of her Mermaid tail ....

After digging herself out of the mermaid tail......

This is so you can see how un-crowded "our" beach is. We go to what the locals call "Whale Beach" (I fit RIGHT in, yeah, that was too easy)..... This is the free beach in Strathmere..right outside of Sea Isle City, NJ. On any given Sunday, that's how crowded it is there, Saturdays are not much worse. The only drawback is that there are no lifegaurds (Maggie only goes in shin-deep anyway), and people can surf-fish right there on the beach or off the rocks in the background.

It's US!!!!

Do you like my hat???


This is what you get when you let a kid run around in the hot sun, splashing in the waves, eating sand for 3 or so hours...... Yes, I took this picture WHILE DRIVING, using the little see-your-child-in -the-backseat-mirror-thingy to line up the shot in the preview pane of the camera. Good thing traffic was light at that time.
