If you want a cool gift...

visit my friend's new website/business and check our her droolworth cupcake recipes/gifts, etc... Plus, she's helping a good cause with the moolah!

BTW, if you're purchasing the gift for me... I like the Banana Rum:)

The last Monday of maternity leave...

I am sad. I thought I would be ready to go back to work... but oddly enough, I wish I had a few more weeks. I know that I am not the stay at home kind of girl... but when I look at Miles fighting sleep with all of his might, I smile and get sad at the thought of possibly missing some of his firsts while at work.

I plan on making sure that my mother has my flip-camera ready at all times just in case he starts speaking in sentences at 2 months, lol. I am also planning to teach her how to text when she comes over tomorrow. That should be interesting. She is very tech UNsaavy! I know that if I can text her during the day, it will make it easier for me to not worry about leaving.

On a fun note, B bought me a series of three massages for our anniversary, and I am getting #1 tomorrow! Woot! I know it will be awesome... plus, my mom is going to watch Miles on Friday night so that Barry and I can go out for dinner and drinks with some friends. I'm really looking forward to it. We haven't been out drinking in forever, b/c if I wasn't pregnant, I was shooting up with fertility meds which didn't exactly mix well with booze.

Man, of man, I am looking forward to Friday. I see an amaretto sour (or 6) in my future!

No, I didn't die or get abducted...

my absence from blogging wasn't due to alien abduction, jail time or death. It was, insert big smile and woot noises here, from enjoying the last few months of my pregnancy and the birth of our first son, Miles Hensley.

Yep, after our long and trying journey to become parents, we now have the most beautiful baby boy in the world. Nope, no bias is in that last statement! Miles was born via c/s after a long failed induction. He entered our world screaming on 01/01/2010 at 3.46 p.m. and he is perfect in every way.

He is now 7 weeks old and growing like a weed. At his 6 week appt he weighed in at 12.12! Not bad for kid that was born at 8.4 and went down to 7.10.

Barry and I are laughing a lot, making mistakes, discovering wonderful and horrible parts of caring for an infant, all while learning even more about each other. It really is everything I imagined and more.

Who knew that I could wake every hour for 7 weeks and still function? Who knew that Barry can sing and dance so well while holding a screaming infant? How does 3 ounces of formula multiply to 12 when it comes back up? How does a baby that has such a small belly/intestinal tract.. stink so badly when he toots... and create so much goose-like poop?

Every day I figure out more and more questions that obviously have no answers;) and I am loving every minute of it.

Stay tuned for pics of Miles very soon!
