A Boring Post by Andy

There has been some talk that this blog isn’t updated frequently enough and in the spirit of picking up the slack for my overwhelmed and oversized wife (no offense honey, you know it’s all baby), I’m going to post a little bit of updating and rambling to entertain the likes of those who find this...

Pregnancy Update

Today saw another visit to my Ob/Gyn and he pretty much told me I was what he considered to be full-term, so now we just get to play the waiting game.  In all likelihood, I have another month to go, but Riley could show up anytime now.  I feel absolutely huge and monstrously uncomfortable.  We’ve...

Atlanta Blizzard 2010

Snow in the south!  Who’d have thought?!  Sure enough after weeks (feels like years) of freezing cold temperatures, we had snow Thursday afternoon, evening, and night.  Andy loved seeing the ground, the deck, his truck, all covered in snow, but probably not as much as he loved the snow day his attending called for Friday. ...

Catching Up: The Aquarium

Okay, this is now the last post of the series (though since they show up from most recent to least recent, this will appear on top).  Read through all the “Catching Up” to get a feel for what exactly we’ve been up to.  The last main thing we did while all the family was in...

Catching Up: Christmas Day!

Probably one of my favorite parts of this year’s holiday season was having my brother, Allison, and our nephew Dylan come visit us for several days.  Andy hadn’t seen Dylan since he was five weeks old and I hadn’t seen him since he was about 6 months old, so now at 13 months, he’s changed...

Catching Up: Mom’s Visit

And now enters the part I don’t have any pictures of – my mom’s visit and the second baby shower.  I packed my camera in my purse for the baby shower, but it never occurred to me to take it out, which is incredibly disappointing as most of our best friends were all in the...

Catching Up: Christmas Photos

For those who didn’t receive our Christmas card (I ordered too few this year, unfortunately, and ran out far too quickly), here are the pictures from the photos we took for it.  Our friend Matt, of Matt Britton Photography in Franklin, took these pictures of us and we really loved them.

Catching Up: Preparing for Riley

Baby Preparations Naturally, we’ve also been working very hard on putting together Riley’s room.  Thanks to two showers, Christmas, tons of hand-me-downs from Dylan, and some very generous grandparents (and our own ingenuity), we have finally finished his nursery.  It’s a beautiful room and now we know it’s also functional, since Dylan has already broken...

Catching Up: The First Baby Shower

What a month we have had!  Things have been extraordinarily busy around here, which is no real surprise, but only now do Andy and I feel like we are recovering from the holiday season.  We had 11 people passing through our doors in the last few weeks and though we loved hosting everyone, it really...
