get your umbrella ready!

we had Danica & Tim's baby shower on Saturday and it went off without a hitch! unfortunately mom was feeling pretty sick that day (and still is) but even though she managed to get the job done. we started out with a simple green & brown theme because at that point we weren't sure about the babies gender (fyi, it's been confirmed a GIRL now) we even managed to surprise Danica -- at least until she hit the driveway! there was a great turnout despite the rainy weather, this baby (and her parents) are surly loved! everyone seemed to have a great time... i know i did!

i was just happy this baby didn't make an appearance before the shower... she can feel free to come anytime now! for more pictures, click here!

thinking about it...

flashbacks: my name is mommy!

November 13, 2005

it's kinda funny that from the time May was born C and I have been "mommy" and "daddy". That's just what we call each other now. Does Adia exist anymore or shall I always be mommy? I suppose I don't mind, it's my new identity. I embrace it.

good light

so i've been dreaming about a digital SLR camera. i almost pulled the trigger but under the circumstances it probably is best that we don't have a $550 (and that's just the body!) credit card cloud hanging over our heads. sooo back to dreaming!

flashbacks: over the two month hump!

September 30th, 2005

YEA we're done with the first two months!!! No more laboring, birthing, hospital visits, figuring out breastfeeding, crying (both of us), weekly visits to the doctor for weight checks, pumping, stressing. And instead there is much more sleeping (6 consecutive hours!), smiling, playing, walking, laughing, cuddling, scooting & babbling!

gosh i love this girl so she not the funniest person ever?!?! And she's only 3 months old, the best is still yet to come!

backyard play

my rechargeable batteries have been losing their rechargability lately. fully charged they give me the dreaded red low battery sign as soon as i put them in so i tossed them and have been using traditional batteries instead.... man they don't last very long either.

don't you just hate when you're trying to catch a moment and....

luckily i had a spare set nearby...

video from our PA trip

a few videos for Aunt Sharon's viewing pleasure.... i wish i got more of the adults for you (sorry)

Pink Lemonade to be exact

we just got back from saying goodbye to the oldest member of our family- Grandmom Lemonade. she was 93 and my great grandmother, making that the kids great-great grandmother... whew!

since i can remember as a little girl every time we'd come visit our grandparents up in Muncy, PA we'd always take a day to visit with Grandmom Lemonade. i remember her house and it's mirror wall with the gold etchings, i remember that "crystal ball" at the bottom of the hill in her yard, i remember the organ in her basement that would entertain us kids for a good while. her sense of style (notice the pearls) and sassyness will always be remembered!

i have all of the pictures from the trip in a private album on facebook. if you're interested in seeing them just let me know and i'll add you to the list.

this picture to the right is so special to me. it shows Grandmom Lemonade, her son (my pop-pop), her granddaughter (my mom), her great granddaughter(me) and her great-great granddaughter (Mayden). 5 generations... it boggles the mind!
