Yay!! Stacy nominated me for the “Love Your Blog Award”. I feel priviledged! She said “She has an adorable baby girl, and writes about all sorts of interesting things. She’s also more descriptive than I am.” Thanks, Stacy!
Apparently I’m now supposed to give the award to seven people.
- Chelsea – although her blog is currently un-named, I love reading about her life and her daughter … who happens to share Gwen’s birthday a year ahead!
- Jenny – tales from our crib is a blog about my nephew =) ‘Nuff said!
- Julie-Anne – Fruitful Vines & Olive Shoots is a fantastic blog about trusting in God through our childbearing years
- Kathryn – Just Me is a blog about her life … she’s quite thrify and crafty, and I envy her mad skillz =) (lol … I really just wanted to write mad skillz … although I truly do admire her!)
- Jon – Stuff Christians Like makes me howl. Every day.
- Christine – welcome to my brain is a blog about her life and the life of her family. She is incredibly insightful and I love reading her posts – they make me think!
- Nicole – Bellies and Babies is written by Nicole, a childbirth educator and doula. I LOOOOVE reading her posts, since I’m a bit of a birth blog junkie.
So there you are … these are a few of the blogs in my blogroll that I hope are updated every time I open up my Google Reader =) Now to visit them all and let them know they’ve got an award …
… from my sister Jenny’s blog. Wuhoo for stolen blog fodder!
I can’t get to sleep without:
Brushing my teeth!! But seriously, at this stage in my life (with a 3-month-old and all), I can fall asleep every night just fine, thank you!
If I were a doll, the accessories packaged with me would be:
Gwen, ring sling (or babywearing accessory of some sort), laptop
I have an irrational fear of:
Being attacked by a man while I’m walking somewhere (maybe that’s not irrational?)
At my grandparents house I usually eat:
Ummm … I remember once eating really nasty soup, does that count?
When I was born I weighed:
7 lbs something (Jenny, you were in the 7’s, too!)
I am most opposed to:
Commercialism, war, abortion, the “cry-it-out” method
On myspace I like to stalk:
Me no have no myspace. On Facebook, I often stalk my sisters =)
I am too old to be:
In grade school – or even high school, for that matter!
I find the thought of childbirth:
Exciting and empowering!
Next door to my house is:
Railroad tracks. Like RIGHT next door.
My feet are:
Flat. I need orthopedic shoes =(
My preferred style of jeans are:
Blue ones that have a bit of flare
I know how to cook:
Quite a bit of stuff!! That doesn’t mean I’ve been doing it lately, though …
I am annoyed at:
The fact that I can’t get anything done during the day anymore. I’ve realized I’m a ‘doing’ person and that not be able to ‘do’ drives me bonkers! I’m also annoyed that our house isn’t completely unpacked/set-up, even after being here for months and months …
Men should always:
Hold the door for women =)
Women should never:
Talk about others behind their backs (please remind me of this)

Hmm … I can’t remember!
I last cried because:
A girl I love very much is in a very difficult situation
My favorite shoes are:
My birkenstocks (that’s right. I wear birkenstocks)
As a parent my greatest fear is:
Being too selfish and my kids knowing it
When I think of Full House:
I think of the time I tried to start a club like the one in the book Phone Call from a Flamingo – did you even know there was a Full House Stephanie book series??
A pathetic amount.
For shame. How about yours?? Leave a link in the comments with your worth =)
I absolutely cannot believe how quickly the time is flying. It feels like just yesterday I was still pregnant, and here we are, three weeks into my beautiful baby girl’s life. Three weeks ago today, Gwen came into our lives in a much more tangible way than she was previously. That little girl has turned our lives COMPLETELY upside down … and we couldn’t be happier!

Click here to check out a great cloth diaper giveaway!
I sooooo want to win this – it would be great if we could get a head-start on our cloth diaper collection!
Wow. I don’t even know where to begin with this blog thing. My apologies, faithful readers, that I have not been faithful in keeping you updated on our lives! I must admit – having lost our camera cord is making it difficult for me to blog about stuff, since I so enjoy blogging about the pictures I’ve taken. I tend to keep a fairly decent picture diary of my life (when I remember the camera), so normally when I go to blog, I look at the pics and figure it out from there, unless something has really been on my mind.
