looking forward and back

I love quotes. And this one by Bill Vaughan made me laugh. An optimist stays up to see the New Year in. A pessimist waits to make sure the old one leaves. Is it a pessimistic quality to love cynicism like that? Ah well, I count it as part of my charm. And here's another... Continue Reading →

how do i bring sexy back?

You know those women who claim to love their new post-childbirth-bodies?  The ones who expound on the beauty and utility of their new boobs and maintain that they have embraced their stretchmarks as some honorable "badge of motherhood"? I am not one of those women.  And those women are obviously lying.  I'm just sayin'. I agree with these... Continue Reading →

She’s finally here!!

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

a quick baby update

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...

the most boring doctor’s appt ever

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...

38 weeks!

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 →

nursery pictures, etc.

I'll put some pictures of the nursery at the bottom of this post.  We think it turned out nice and it's a very bright and cheery room!  I had my 36 week doctor appointment yesterday and all is well.  Samantha's head is down and she's in position for the big day - whenever that might be.  Other...

bean update

I'm sitting here watching my belly move.  It is the weirdest, most fascinating thing I've ever seen.  I'm hoping there's a human baby in there instead of an alien but right now my money is on alien.  It's just too bizarre.  And you know what else is bizarre?  The fact that my belly button is...

note to self

Do NOT look at the Victoria's Secret catalog when your belly looks like this... And the VS model's bellies look like...well, you know...NOT like this... Those are VS pajama bottoms I have on by the way, but somehow the effect isn't the same...

wanna play…

...catch up that is?  It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from the "internets".  Ah well, that's just how it goes I guess.  Basketball:  First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke...

ultrasound pics

This post is mostly for mom and a few select people I guess.  Not that anyone else is banned from reading, just you might be getting bored with all the baby talk and I completely realize that this blog is becoming "all Bean, all the time".  Maybe I should start up another blog with just Bean...

the verdict…

We found out today that we are having a lil' baby girl Finn!  Guess I was wrong eh? Everything looks healthy and normal.  We have several pictures and a dvd which I'm sure I will bore several family members with later.  🙂  We're very excited with the news and now maybe I'll actually feel like I can go...

week 19

I'm going to post a longer Bean update but until then, here are pics of my 19 week belly taken today.  And yes, I'm wearing the same shirt as the last pics.  More later, I promise.    

first belly pic!

You know sometimes you don't know what you really look like until you see a picture of yourself and you think "who is THAT"?  I just had that feeling when I saw this picture on the screen.  This is me now, at 16 weeks.  A little scary I have to say.  I think I look bigger than...

a few complaints

What is the deal?  Is it the weather that's making my beloved laptop run about as slow as a turtle on weed?  It's almost annoying enough to make a girl close it up, open a real live book and do some homework.  Almost. Take notes.  For the next five and a half months do not... Continue Reading →

12-week appt

Right now I'm eating those yummy sugar cookes you get in the clear plastic containers at Kroger.  The ones with the pink frosting and sprinkles.  And I don't feel guilty about it.  Just so you know. Sometimes I think I might be narcoleptic.  And arthritic.  But then I remember, no, I'm just pregnant.  I felt like... Continue Reading →

baby on board

For real!  The real reason this blog has been of the suck lately is because I've been a bit distracted with being pregnant!  Holy cow!  It doesn't seem real but wow, it is!  We saw the heartbeat last week and it was so amazing.  I don't even know how to write about it or what... Continue Reading →
