Thanks to everyone for the congratulatory messages and thoughts! I am pretty much a walking zombie right now so all I have the energy for is this....
Here are a few pictures...oh, but first, the stats...She was born on 7/24 at 8:46 am. Weighed 8 lbs even and was 22.5 inches long. I'm not making that up....WNBA here we come! I'll give a better recap later but first, some photos...
Samantha Elizabeth was born on her due date, and on her great-grandfather's birthday, July 24th at 8:46 am. I can't believe we made it. Pictures and details to come! Thanks to everyone for thinking of us! Hugs, Finn, The Accountant & Sami
It has been a very nice weekend, albeit a very uncomfortable one. I am in a much better frame of mind than I was when I threw down that last post for some reason. Maybe because I know that no matter what, I only have to drag my aching body into work for three more days... Continue Reading →
My best friend got married yesterday! We've known each other since junior high. I am so happy and excited for her but a bit bummed because I couldn't be a part of the wedding or even go to the ceremony. The timing was all wonky. I mean really, we're both in our early 30s and... Continue Reading →
Pregnancy. I'm so over it.
I had my 39 week doctor appointment today. I'm finally dialated! Although not very much at all (1.5 centimeters), I'll still take it. I go back to the doc on my due date - the 24th - and if Sami hasn't made her entrance by then I'll be induced at some point the following week. The... Continue Reading →
Especially this morning. I got up at least five times last night to pee and stretch my hips. I'm also having some cramping sensations, not painful but not pleasant either. So I am exhausted and plan on going back to bed momentarily. On one of my many bathroom trips I noticed that the cat had... Continue Reading →
I'm thankful that my pregnancy has been relatively "boring" with no complications and whatnot. I really am. That said, today was the ultimate in boring appointments. There's no further progress from last week and Sami's head still needs to drop some more, after which the doc told me I will begin experiencing "sharp stabbing pains... Continue Reading →
Um yeah, so I have two weeks to go and it will be my due date! I really can't believe we are THIS close to meeting baby Samantha. I wonder what she'll look like? I can't imagine. I go back to the doctor tomorrow for my 38 week visit but am behind in updating on... Continue Reading →
...that I wrote about here? It was short-lived. Here's a very brief description of how the following couple of days went... 1. The Accountant's grandmother had a stroke and has been in the hospital. She's much better now and is nearly back to her old self. 2. Cooper either got bit by a snake or had... Continue Reading →
So much to do, so much to say, no time or energy to do either. I have new belly pics, new Samantha info, new doggies pics, and new Ben & Jerry's flavors to try (my latest favorite is the Phish Food - holy moly!!!). I'll catch up soon perhaps. To quote Miss Scarlet O'Hara "tomorrow is another... Continue Reading →
I would say that today has been as close to a Perfect Day as I've had in a very long time. The Accountant and I are both off of work due to the holiday (Happy 4th everyone!) and we had absolutely no plans. No where to go, no household projects, no company expected, nada, nothing,...

I had a giftcard to use and decided to buy this.... Who knows if it will help me get back in shape or not but it looks pretty nifty anyway.
