Welcome to the World.

This is my neice, Sloan Abbie Macfarlan. She came to hang with us in this world on Feb 8 at 8:02am, weighing 7 lbs 2oz. Her mom and dad are amazing, and I am quite in love. Seriously. Most newborns look like aliens. She looks perfect.

First day of life. Welcome little girl!
You KNOW who gave her that SICK awesome hat. :)

Biggest smile on a 1 wk old I've ever seen.

To watch your big brother fall in love all over again. It's amazing.

Oh. Just love her.

Who'd a Thunk It?

Seriously. Who would have? To the girl who said, "No marraige until 30." Swept off her feet at 22. To the girl who proclaimed, "No children for 5 more years!" Yup, you guessed it. Two pink lines. Pregnant.

A LITTLE surprised, but the first trimester is over, the surprise has worn off, and the TOTAL joy and excitement has replaced fear as we eagerly anticpate this change in our lives.

The husband: couldn't you guess? Couldn't be happier. I tell you ladies, even if the thought of you as a mamma frickin' terrifies you, do one thing and do it right- find and marry a man who makes you feel fearless to do anything. Even parent. Me as a mom? Scary. Parenting with a father like Ryan at my side? This is gonna work. :)

We found out December 11th. Won't ever forget. 7 days later, told the parents and promptly left for a snowboarding trip with 60 highschoolers. You better believe this momma ain't givin' up thrashing the nasty pow pow for a little 'going against dr.s' orders! So, don't call up Dr. Carter and tell him, but yes, I went snowboarding. Yes, I thrashed the nasty pow pow. Yes, baby is fine. :)

First sonogram. I call it the "Little Nixie Baby Blob." See labels to help decipher parts.

Anyone who tells me that looks like anything other than a blob is crazy. But it's my blob. And I love my blob. This was taken right at 4 wks. Here comes the second one.

This is at 9 weeks. Good strong heart beat, and just as cute as a little button. He/She has my nose.

Now, lastly, for you precious 'away' friends, don't you be expecting a week-by-week play by play photo op of Calpal's bare tummy being spread over this here blog. No sirrreee, not a part of my body I would like to draw attention to, pregnant or not. You'll just have to take my word for it. :)

Well, it's a great reason to get my booty in gear with this blog. There will be more updates, now that I have something delightful and interesting to update you on. :)

Love you all, covet your prayers, and am thankful for you.

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen." -Ephesians 3:20-21
