2011 – Let’s review

2011 started off like any other year, with a wicked ice storm that pretty much shut down the whole state of Georgia. We made the best of it and actually had a really great time. We wouldn't get that kind of ice/snow again for the rest of the year. I'm actually hoping that we get one again, only this time we'll have a lil' baby with us. February brought us Gracie. A Great Dane that would put us to the test. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taFR6LzQ2rM[/youtube] Neither one of us had ever owned such a beast. She was one of the sweetest and happy dogs ever, but damn was she a handful. After many…

We’re Ready! 38 Weeks….

Here I am at 38 weeks. Sometimes I catch myself in the mirror and stop for a quick..."woah"...then move along. It's still kinda surreal to me that in the very, very near future we are going to have a tiny human in this house, but we couldn't be more ready! One day after Christmas and you'd never know it was here. Everything is packed up and in the attic until next year. Closets have been cleaned out and new toys/clothes are put away. Grad school is completely DONE! Just waiting on a final grade on my portfolio and I can officially say I've finished my Master's. School's out until next…

The tree is still up, there's still remnants of wrapping paper, bows, and tape lying around. The 'new car' smell on all the toys is still there, but the actual day has passed. That by no means, indicates that all the joy and happiness of the season has moved on as well. Chase is off at his dad's, playing with his toys there while his other pile awaits him here. Jess and I both are enjoying each other's company and all the wonderful things 'Santa' has brought us. We had a very modest…

36 weeks!!!!

Only one week away from a full term baby! We are so close to meeting this little guy and everything's coming together. One more week of work and grad school then I am DONE! Most days I feel great. I have a cold, and some days I feel like he could just fall right out, but overall I feel calm. And happy. And ready. Things are going to be so different but it's a big change I'm ready for. Chase and Ben have been amazingly helpful these past few weeks also. Here's a pic from this week. Sleepy and swollen, but happy and smiling. :)
