Dear Henry

Dear Henry Andrew,

Has it been a week already? We are so excited to welcome you into the world! You were born on July 15, 2011 at 11:08 PM. You weighed in at 7 pounds 15 ounces, (same as your birthdate!) and measured 19 3/4 inches. Perfect.

We can't wait for the weeks and years, steps and milestones ahead.

Love, love, love you,

Dear Baby: Nursery

Dear Baby,

I'm very jealous of your room... it came together so well! Your Dad worked very hard at taking down the wallpaper, painting, hanging and assembling. And I worked very hard ordering him around and organizing. All it's missing is a bookshelf that's on it's way... and YOU! Now I'm not trying to bribe you, but if you don't make your appearance soon, I'm moving in and you can sleep with your Daddy, King and Sparty. Keep in mind Sparty snores pretty loud. No pressure... the choice is totally yours.

Can't wait to meet you little one!


Before: When we were first looking at the house. Crazy wallpaper.
Before #2: Crazy mural.

We went with a Nautical theme.

Old World Map and fun artwork.

Close-up on some of the art...

Changing Station...

This is the corner where the bookshelf will go.

See you soon baby!
If you want details on anything in the room, please let me know!


Google+, Dinner & the Baby

So I managed to find my way to Google+ (Thanks, Tim!) and am liking it so far! So be sure to find me if you're on as well... if not I'm sure you'll find your way over there eventually. What can I say- I'm such an early adopter.

Anyways, my first Google+ "friend,"  posted this to his account, and it intrigued me so I wanted to share.

My answers?
1. David Sedaris
2. Marie Antoinette
3. Jack Nicholson
4. Madame Toussaud
5. Elton John
6. Billy Joel
7. Chuck Palahniuk

What about you?

In unrelated news, there is no sign that baby wants to make his appearance. He either:
a. is stubborn like his mother
b. dawdles like his father
c. is competitive and wants to show the 16-pound baby how it's really done.

Please don't be "c."
