And The Winner Is. . .


aka Heidi, my good friend ever since our little league softball days. She is also expecting her second girl and is due only 2 weeks before me!

Congratulations Heidi!

You get to pick your prize. You can choose between a beaded binky holder, a set of three matching burp cloths, a baby bracelet (all made by me), or 'count down to baby' blocks made by my very talented sister, Amber.

We'll discuss your choice next time we talk.

Thanks for playing everyone! We are very excited for Paige to have a little sister. Paige is too. She talks to my tummy every day and frequently asks if we can just open up my belly button and take her out now :)

Gender Contest

I have my 20 week ultrasound tomorrow. You know what that means. . . . we get to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl! (as well as whether or not he or she is healthy).

So, here's the deal. In honor of this occasion I would like to hold a little contest on my blog. Just write in a comment your prediction for whether it's a boy or a girl. Once we find out I will pool all of the correct predictions together and hold a drawing. Whomever wins the drawing will win a baby related prize like a beaded binkie holder or a bracelet or some cute burb cloths, etc (I'm in the middle of moving, so that detail will have to be worked out later).

Happy Guessing!

Our Sweet Girl

Last night at dinner Paige was being silly. She was playing with a pat of butter, singing, and giggling to herself. Ben and I were both admiring her when Ben said, "Paige, I love you."

She stopped, looked up at him with serious eyes and replied, "Daddy, I'm so glad to have you back."

From the look on his face after that, I think his heart must have melted a little.

When Paige called for us from her crib this morning, Ben went to get her.

He walked in to find her standing with her pink piggy footie pjs unzipped, unpeeled from her body and pooled at her feet, along with her elmo panties.

Looking at her tiny naked (freezing cold) body, he asked, "Paige, why'd you do that?"

Her reply? (said in her sweetest possible voice)

"Don't worry about it."

My friend (ever since bonding over boys in 8th grade), Jill, had her 2nd baby girl on Monday.

Lucky for me, I was there to witness it all!

It was an awesome experience and I'm so glad Jill and Tim let me be there for their precious daughter's birth.

She is such a cutie!
