    Babies & Babbling*

    He’s here. :) After many long months of waiting, my perfect little nephew arrived this morning at 9:20am. He is a healthy 9 lbs 3 oz, and both the baby and Peeah are doing well. In fact, because she is super woman, she was back at home shortly after lunch.  I spoke with her this afternoon and she sounded so happy–tired, but happy. I haven’t met him yet, but I hear my little nephew has reddish blond hair and I’m positive I will absolutely melt when I hold him on Thursday. (…is it Thursday yet?) I hate that I’m not with my family right now, but as we were already…

    Dear Nephew*

    Well, as my nephew still hasn’t made his grand appearance, I thought I’d tell you a little story about Princess Pea while we wait. I’m fairly certain of two things: 1) I have the cutest niece in the world. 2) She loves me. Princess Pea began speaking a few months ago. At first it was just “Mum mum” and “Dad”, but she soon added “More”, “Help” and “kitty” to her expanding vocabulary. Naturally, as soon as we realized she was learning to speak, my entire family began trying to teach her how to say our names. Big Dad succeeded in teaching her how to say “Gumpo”, and I believe she’s…

    …but I blogged yesterday, right?!

    As I was folding Christmas letters and stuffing them into envelopes this afternoon I thought to myself, “Gee, it feels like I haven’t blogged in forever.” Then I thought, “But I’m suuuuch a good blogger. That can’t possibly be true.“ (It’s true. *sigh*) Oh my lovelies, can you ever forgive me for my neglect? I’ve sort of fallen into this place where I think about something I want to write about, but by the time I get home from wherever I was where I thought of it I’m usually too tired and just want to feed my current Criminal Minds obsession or get caught up on things I’ve neglected around…

    Planning Peeah’s Party*

    Hi lovelies. :) I haven’t forgotten about you, I promise. It’s just been a reeeally busy couple of days. I am currently writing to you from my parent’s kitchen table in B-Town as I’m up visiting for the weekend. I’ve been planning a baby shower for my sister (Peeah) for the past couple of months and today is the big day! We have nearly 30 people coming so it should be quite the party. I’ll make sure to take lots of pictures so you can pretend you’re partying with Peeah and Pipes (her baby is apparently quite the mover in her belly). The Hubster is back home guarding our house…
