To celebrate Otis turning two, we had a train themed birthday party complete with Railroad Crossing signal and Thomas, James and Percy cardboard box trains.

I've been slowly working on Silvia's bedroom. She's been in it for a few months now, but it was basically Otis' baby room minus a few things that moved with him into his big boy bedroom. This weekend's project was a homemade mobile for her room. Otis and Ian both helped and here is the final product: Continue reading

So, Baby B is due to come in 5 days! Wow! Where did the time go? With Otis I felt like my pregnancy lasted forever, probably because of the anticipation of becoming a mom. This time, it feels like it flew by. Probably because we weren't planning to have another... Continue reading

Today is our Baby Brackenridge (affectionately known as "Cletus the Fetus") official due date! I guess we start counting backwards from here. Although I think 02/12/2012 would be a good birth date, it doesn't look like s/he is coming today. Here is what I'm looking like at 40 weeks pregnant... Continue reading

Today is December 15th, 2011 - one year since we officially moved into our first home! I can't believe it has almost been a full year since my last post - I think about blog post topics all the time, and draft them in my head while driving, working, doing the dishes etc. Anyhow, needless to say, it has been a busy year.

Thank you very much to those who have been so generous in sponsoring me for my inside ride event to raise funds for kids with cancer. I've more than doubled my fundraising goal, but my team is about $1000 short of our team goal. So I'm looking for some more... Continue reading
