April 30, 2011 Okay so really I'm posting this late but last weekend Abby turned 1 month old!  We happened to also have an open house the same day & she got to meet both of her great-grandmothers, her Aunt Sal, and many other new friends including 6 week old Gabby and 10 week old Colin! Abby's stats at 1 month are 10 lbs, 3 oz and 21 1/4...
April 24, 2011 (Easter Sunday) So we owe a bunch of thank you's to a lot of people (and if you gave Abby a gift in March or April, you will get a formal thank you.... eventually, I promise!) We've been fortunate to have been showered with lots of hand-me-downs (mostly from my brother & his wife, but also from several friends) and also...
April 21, 2011 I'll start with the things I won't miss about being pregnant (in attempt to end this entry on a positive note): ~Heartburn! Even though the heartburn got less severe after I changed my diet in December (due to being diagnosed with glucose intolerance which is easiest to describe as borderline gestational diabetes), the last few...

I started timing the...
March 25, 2011 Well we are now 4 days past our due date for this little princess, and it looks like she is a Diva in the making and planning a fashionably late arrival into our lives! As I sit here at the computer wondering when she will finally decide to make her appearance, I'm catching up on all sorts of little projects I've been thinking...
On my 30th birthday, I received the best news....I found out I was pregnant!  Lynn didn't quite believe there was a line on the home pregnancy test because it was so faint.  I ran to the store to get a different test and there was another faint line, however we still weren't convinced.  It was a Sunday & Grandma & Grandpa C...
  Lynn and I met at the end of summer in August 2000.  I had just moved to Rohnert Park as a transfer student at Sonoma State University.  Lynn had lived in Rohnert Park for a few years already and was also a student at the University.  He was "homeless" after his rental house was sold, and he was living in the...
