He was scheduled to be delivered by c-section Thursday… guess he had other plans. His Momma started contracting last night and off they went to the hospital. Baby Brother arrived around noon today and his Big Sister giggled every time she got to touch his head. He is a pretty baby and I’m happy the wait for him is over. Both Momma and baby boy are fine tonight. Their Daddy called a little while ago asking if I would keep big sister tomorrow and of course, I said yes. I don’t know if I will keep her again after that until the Mom returns to work in mid-August or early September and then I’ll have both of them. Fun times ahead people! I’ll add a picture of the sweet boy in a password protected post.

The last day of May…

…. and what can I say? ;)

Oh, I can say I’m proud summer has arrived, just love hot weather.

I will say I am happy we will soon get to meet another new baby. In fact, this coming Thursday unless he decides to come sooner. The baby I’m keeping has a brother coming and yes, they will only be a year apart. I’m thinking it will be lots of fun and plenty of work too, but oh so rewarding for their family and me!

I’ll tell you I finally got the flower bug and have filled my empty pots. It was hard to get excited about playing in the rain to plant them and the reason I am late getting them started.

Oh, let’s see, what else? OH! Super excited that my Dad’s nephew and family have organized a family reunion. The first in many years and I can’t wait for that!

I don’t have anything else to say on this last day of May. How about you?

May 22nd

Thirty-three years ago, Ed and I married on this date and it has always been a day of celebration until my brother’s death 10 years ago today changed that. And would you believe Ed’s Mom passed away due to complications from congestive heart failure today as well? Graveside services tomorrow with visitation at the cemetery. We’re thinking we should just skip this date from now on.

I’m Shocked, but Happy!

I came to the realization this morning that Kris could indeed walk away with the American Idol win when I thought about Danny’s fans and who they would more likely vote for. You know though, I really wasn’t positive, but I am very happy he won. He’s humble and super talented both as a singer and musician. The thing is, Adam is the showman and like the season where Reuben won and Clay came in second, it is quite possible Adam will have the bigger career. Time will tell.

Rainfall

I knew we had received buckets and buckets of rain, but had no idea until talking with my sister-in-law yesterday that she and Ed’s brother had recorded over 24 inches of rain the last two months. Our average rainfall for a year in this area is around 45 inches give or take a few. No wonder the pools are full and even overflowing, that’s a LOT of rain, but remember, I’m not complaining!

Idol Surprise, Take Two

Wow! Kris really stepped up and so did his fans. He is IN the top two! I was as surprised as he was since the predictions all along have been for Danny and Adam to battle it out for the title. I hope Danny’s dreams continue to come true.

Wow! Kris stepped up tonight after thinking he would be leaving last week. He simply had that look of defeat and when Allison was voted off, I do believe the young man decided he could stay and compete! I loved his performances tonight, in fact, the best I’ve heard from him all season. I’m going to be happy no matter who wins of this final three.

So the baby’s Momma tells me she did alright wearing the graduation cap and holding a diploma. They will cut her out of the photo they took and place her on a stage with a caption similar to “starting her out right for success”. I still don’t know if this is a newspaper ad or exactly where this is to be printed or featured. I can’t wait to see it though! Maybe I can share it in some way, if not on here, then through an email.

The baby girl I’ve been keeping since last November had her photo taken today in her “Huggies” diaper with a graduation cap on and is supposed to represent Kimberly-Clark in some way. The parents were to find out today just what it was all about, but I haven’t heard yet. I hope they were successful in keeping the cap on her head. She’s at an age (nearly a year old) where nothing and I mean NOTHING is supposed to be on her head, but her hair! :)

More when I know more!

Idol Thoughts and The Lack of Downed Tree Pictures

I was very surprised when Allison was booted from the show although she had been in the bottom three several times. I like the girl and think she will have a career in the music industry without winning the title of American Idol. Just look what Chris Daughtry has done.

On the lost tree news and Denise asking about pictures; yes, I have some, and I’ll try to find one before the tree fell, post one during the cleanup process and then I’ll have to take the after. I’ll put that on my already long list of things I procrastinate about! ;)

Thanks for commenting, y’all!
